Hi.

Has anyone tried the new Brocade management tool DCFM? i've been able to install it on the server and i can run the GUI just fine. But remotely, from my PC through HTTP, i keep getting an error (i am guessing Java as my culprit) that it cannot start the application...

Has this been an issue with anyone else? Any tips on how to debug this?

thanks.

well, i was able to get an answer...

Seems like the version of java i was running (1.6 update 7) does not work with the application, it needs to be 1.6 update 5. I removed 6 and 7 and it now works...
Man is Java picky...! :)

Here is the answer i got:


To launch the DCFM Enterprise Client from a remote host, launch the client as follows:
Open a browser window and type the DCFM server hostname or IP address in the Address field;
for example:

http://DCFMserverhost1.companyname.com/
http://192.x.y.z/

If when the DCFM server was installed, a DCFM web server port number was specified (instead of the default 80), you must specify the port number after the hostname or IP address. In the following examples, 8080 is the web server port number:

http://DCFMserverhost1.companyname.com:8080/
http://192.x.y.z:8080/

Java Runtime Environment version needs to be at v1.6.0 Update5

Not running JRE v1.6.0 Update5 can cause a known issue where the remote client fails to launch. This JRE version is bundled with the DCFM Server. If your system does not already have JRE 1.6.0, when laucnhing the remote client the browser will have a link to download the JRE installer. If your system already contains JRE 1.6.0 it is required for you to be running v1.6.0 Update5. This can be validated by running ‘java –version’ from the command prompt. If the version displays as ‘1.6.0_05’ You are running the correct version. If not uninstall the version and re-point your web browser to the DCFM Server IP address to download the correct version. To note however you installed JRE 1.6.0 Update5 be sure not to us Java’s auto-updater, as this will change the JRE version.
