After two miserable nights trying to upgrade Space 13.1R1.6 to 14.1R1.9, I finally called up JTAC for some assistance. For some reason the upgrade started, but never finished – the GUI remaining in ‘maintenance mode’ for several hours.
What they did:
Checked the services – all were showing as down:
service jmp-watchdog status
service jboss status
service jboss-dc status
Tried to start jboss-dc, but it complained that it couldn’t write or create /var/log/jboss.
Did the following to change ownership from root:root on the /var/log directory:
chown jboss:root /var/log
service jboss-dc start
service jboss start
At this point the GUI started showing ‘Junos space is preparing to start up’, and after 20 minutes it changed to say the applications were deploying.
