Alfresco running in read-only mode

Jump to solution

Hello

I got this error

Alfresco has detected a manual change within the user tracking database, the system has now been switched to run in a read-only mode. Please contact Alfresco Support for further assistance, at https://support.alfresco.com/.

any idea on how to revert this and have the system running again in "write mode".

Note: it is not a license issue.

Thanks,

Erick Brenes.

In my case I was running a cluster architecture and one of the nodes had a wrong hostname, the issue got solved after changing the hostname to its correct value.

This is not related to Alfresco. It is an OS/Linux issue.

Desh,

Do you have a valid license for Enterprise Edition?

Have you manually made any changes to the database?

Re: Alfresco running in read-only mode

Thanks Jeff, 

we have recently upgraded the license now it will expire after 300 days. Number of users is however approaching to limit but we have 900+ users against licence of 1000 users.

We did not try to change the database manually.Whatever we do is just regular work of upload, change, preview docs or create, delete users through alfresco share UI and admin console.

This started happening for last 1 months. Before that it was working without any problem.

One point i would like to mention that i have uploaded the licence through admin console and applied from there.

Thanks,

Desh

Are you running a cluster?

Re: Alfresco running in read-only mode

i don't think so as our alfresco is installed on single Linux CentOS machine.It has been working without any problem for last 1 year.

I would like to mention an observation that, this read-only mode is occurring at every Monday 3 AM and then resolves after restarting and then again after 1 week on same day and time it goes read-only.

Thanks,

Re: Alfresco running in read-only mode

Well that is certainly a clue. Are there any cron jobs set to run at or around that time?

Also, if you have OOTB Support Tools installed, which is pretty much always recommended, you can easily see a list of Alfresco's scheduled jobs by going to http://alfresco.local:8080/alfresco/s/ootbee/admin/scheduled-jobs . Maybe there is something running in Alfresco around that time that is mis-behaving.

Re: Alfresco running in read-only mode

Hi, I am experiencing a similar issue. Could you please share some details on how you fixed this? I am running 6.0.2-ga and started from the AiO project. Whe I try to create a node I get:

org.alfresco.service.transaction.ReadOnlyServerException: 07300043 Access Denied. The system is currently in read-only mode.

The environment is the AiO docker setup, the host machine runs Fedora. What was your hostname issue about?

 

Thank you in advance.
