Missing ports in ASE Cockpit

After upgrading from ASE 16.0 SP01 to SP02 PL01 I tried to start the new ASE Cockpit. Cockpit starts but the connection info like "Cockpit Web Console: https://dimotion:4283/cockpit" is missing:


[sybase@dimotion bin]$ ./

Starting Cockpit Server...

Type help for more options



A connection with the ASE Cockpit installation is not possible. Displaying the ports I get:


cockpit> info -p

---------- SERVICE PORT CONFIGURATION ----------

Service Name           Property Name                  Current Value   In Use Address

------------           -------------                  -------------   ------ -------

RMI                    port                           4992            true   dimotion

EmbeddedWebContainer   http.port                      4282            false  ANY

EmbeddedWebContainer   https.port                     4283            false  ANY

Tds                    tdsPort                        4998            false  ANY

SccSADataserver        com.sybase.asa.server.port     4638            false  ANY

Messaging              messaging.db.port              4638            false  ANY

Messaging              messaging.port                 4993            false  ANY

Alert                  alert.database.port            4638            false  ANY



All ports are free, because an IQ Cockpit installation runs on the same machine with the identical ports. The agent status also looks OK:


cockpit> status -a

Agent Home:     /opt/ase160/COCKPIT-4

Connection URL: service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://dimotion:4992/agent

Status:         RUNNING



The upgrade itself works without any error or message. Am I missing something necessary during the upgrade?

Many thanks

    I think we're in exactly the same process, as I had the same problem today !

    First I thought that it was our firewalls here, that did not let the traffic through, so I spoke to the network guys but they said that they couldn't see any ports listening on my ASE server ?

    So I took a look at the manual, and as far as I could find out it wasn't enough to just start Cockpit. You also have to start all the "Services", but outside Cockpit and before you start Cockpit ! So I reckon that you alter some kind of config file (that I haven't found yet) with these commands ?

    What I did was the following :

    ./ -enable Tds

    ./ -enable EmbeddedwebContainer

    ./ -enable Messaging


    Then you can check your ports and see so that they actually are listening with :

    netstat -tpnl

    You can also see that the ports have changed from "false" to "true" with "info -p" ?

    That is as far as I've come now. I can get the logon screen, but no "system" has been discovered yet, and I think one have to specify that too before starting Cockpit ? So I did that too with :

    ./ -instance <the ASE name> -user sa -password <sa password>

    But I still cannot choose any "system" in my loon screen on my browser...
