Can't install PTC System Monitor agent

Does anyone have any idea what I am doing wrong? I have installed the server and collector on a Windows server without any problems, but when I come to install the agent for monitoring the integrity server on a Linux machine, it always fails:

Log file:

java.lang.NullPointerException

I am using the GUI to do the install but it fails whether I use root or the Integrity user. I've already wasted a day on this so would really be appreciative of any help.

Best regards,

Paul

In the the <Integrity server install directory>/config/mksservice.conf file

Try removing the quotations around mks.java.additional.XX=-agentpath:"<PSM Agent install path>\libdtagent.so"=name=<local name>,server=<server name: server port>,wait=15

Thanks

"Increase Integrity JVM Timeout to 10 minutes" box in the "JVM Timeout section"

Edit <IntegrityServerInstallDir>\config\mksservice.conf

Set the following property:

mks.ping.timeout=300

Also please make sure you have enough space /tmp

Thanks

Thanks for the info.

ping timeout was already set and trying to set JVM Timeout to 10 minutes then returned a message box that it would not be set as I have less then 8GB heap space, which I already knew. However it then installed!

The next problem is that my Integrity server will no longer start. The JVM stops immediately:

From startup.log:

STATUS | 2015/08/27 15:48:35 | Launching a JVM...

ERROR  | 2015/08/27 15:48:35 | JVM exited while loading the application.

and repeats until the mks.max_failed_invocations setting is reached.

restoring the old mksservice.conf allows the server to start normally

Any ideas?

Best regards,

Paul

Hi Paul,

Binesh is likely correct. 

If you follow his advice and it still doesn't work, please turn on JVM DEBUG logging (see CS113999 for details), and post the logging from your <ServerInstall>/log/startup.log here. If you get to that point, but you'd rather not post that log, please open a case with PTC Integrity Lifecycle Manager Support.

Kael
