I am trying to install IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment version 7.0 on an AMD64 KVM VM running Debian Jessie. I cannot start the launchpad.sh script regardless of whether I use Debian Iceweasel from APT or Mozilla Firefox manually installed, but I can start the installer by running <WAS installer directory/WAS/install. However, when attempting to install a cell profile (the one with nodeagent and deployment manager), the installer stays stuck on a post-extraction step called "generateProfileKey" and will not proceed any further. I already made sure the installer is running off its own bundled JRE instead of my system's OpenJDK JRE.

Any idea of why this happens and what can I do to make this step complete successfully?


Update: I tried attaching strace to the installer process, which is a Java app. When the installer gets stuck on the generateProfileKey step, strace shows a lot of stuff like this:

[pid 15506] futex(0x7fd7c4b9bb14, FUTEX_WAIT_BITSET_PRIVATE|FUTEX_CLOCK_REALTIME, 128811, {1444774068, 879328000}, ffffffff) = -1 ETIMEDOUT (Connection timed out)
[pid 15506] futex(0x7fd7c4b9bb40, FUTEX_WAKE_PRIVATE, 1) = 0
[pid 15506] gettimeofday({1444774068, 879537}, {300, 1444774068}) = 0
[pid 15506] gettimeofday({1444774068, 879569}, {300, 1444774068}) = 0

Next are the last few log messages created by the installer when it got stuck on the offending step. Since it seems like the last log file has a detailed trace of the profile invocation and key generation process, I'm going to start over the installation focusing on file /usr/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/logs/manageprofiles/Dmgr01_create.log.

Update 2: I let the profile key creation process complete, and now I have a full trace of the failed profile creation. The trace, as expected, was on /usr/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/logs/manageprofiles/Dmgr01_create.log. Since it's a pretty long error trace written in XML, I'm only showing here the result of only leaving the contents of the <message> elements.

The error seems to be caused by a failing ANT build. I'm not a Java developer (I intend to use WAS as middleware for IBM Cognos Business Intelligence) so I have never used ANT before, but it seems like the next step is to try and debug the ANT build on /usr/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profileTemplates/cell/dmgr/actions/generateProfileKey.ant

    Try attaching to it with strace to see what it's stuck on. Do something like: strace -s 512 -f -p pidof_installer_or_children_here 2>&1| tee /tmp/installer1.strace – Some Linux Nerd Oct 9 '15 at 22:57

    That attaches a special debugger that only prints out system calls. If you see an error it has a good likelyhood of being the problem. If you just see a lot of selects() then it's waiting for some data. If you restart the install you can start strace from the beginning. Anyway if its not the main process, check if the main installer is spawning any children. – Some Linux Nerd Oct 9 '15 at 22:59
  • Also some cryptographic programs (like pgp) generate their own random numbers which can take a while. – Some Linux Nerd Oct 9 '15 at 23:00
  • Last thing - check if the installer leaves a log somewhere. A lot of installers log their progress. – Some Linux Nerd Oct 9 '15 at 23:01
  • OP updated. I'll try something new in a moment. – RAKK Oct 13 '15 at 22:26
