Address already in Use

(Jayant Singh) #1

Hello colleagues,
We are facing the following error while trying to start the Ataccama server from one of our mdc files in the IDE. But it seems the server is already running. I tried to stop the server for all other projects. But it is not helping us. When we try to stop he server for a project, we get the message, “Executing Stop Command on localhost 7799

Here is m question, does this mean that it is having some difficulties in stopping the server successfully. Any explanation/feedback is appreciated.

Hello Jayant,

The error message "Address already in use" means the server and port where you want to start the DQC server are in use. If you are executing the stop script for the server and you receive the message “Executing Stop Command on localhost 7799” followed by no error message, it means that the script is working, and the server should be stopped. If the server does not stop it might be because the script uses a different server configuration file than the start script. You can check that by examining both scripts.

On Windows you can see what process is using the 7799 port and clear it manually. If the port is being used by another service for HTTP requests, you should change the port in the DQC server configuration file.

Kind Regards,
