Can't access Shared Admin Tools

Jump to solution

I just started with Alfresco Community 6.1.2. Installed it on a fresh VM running CentOS 7. I differed from the instructions in Tomcat installation; instead of downloading it, I used

yum install tomcat

. Then I installed MariaDB, created a database, etc.

After a couple of small hiccups, I got Tomcat and Alfresco to start. I opened the page at http://<servername>:8080 which showed a menu with 2 choices. I selected "Alfresco Repository" which took me to http://<servername>:8080/alfresco and showed 11 choices. I selected "Alfresco Admin Console". This gave a basic authentication popup and I used admin/admin there.

Now I see the system summary.

This is where I am at the moment. According to the documentation, there should be an option here to show the Shared Admin Tools

Either something's missing from the docs or I missed some step.

Eureka!

The distribution.zip contains share.amp but does not install it. It has to be installed manually as per https://docs.alfresco.com/6.1/tasks/amp-install.html

In my environment, I had to give the command:

java -jar /root/alfresco-content-services-community-distribution-6.1.2-ga/bin/alfresco-mmt.jar install /root/alfresco-content-services-community-distribution-6.1.2-ga/amps/alfresco-share-services.amp /usr/share/tomcat/webapps/alfresco.war -verbose

The message is now gone from the top, so hopefully everything should work. 

There should have been a link somewhere instead of having to search all the docs.

Ah! It seems the URL I used is not the one; it should be http://<servername>:8080/share

Now I see the message: "Alfresco is running without Share Services."

Let's see how to deal with that...

Check version of Share Services module installed in alfresco.war and version of your Share application share.war. It should be the same.

p.s. why don't you use docker?

Thanks for the reply.

Check version: How?

Apparently the share module isn't installed. Going thru the docs (https://docs.alfresco.com/5.1/tasks/simpleinstall-enterprise-lin-share.html#simpleinstall-enterprise...) doesn't appear quite right as this link is for version 5, not 6.

Docker... yeah. I'm not quite sure I know what docker is Smiley Sad

The installation instructions I followed were from https://docs.alfresco.com/community/concepts/install-community-intro.html

Do you see Share Dashboard? Where did you see see the message: "Alfresco is running without Share Services."? Can you give a screenshot?

Try clear web browser data and reload http://xxxx:8080/share/

Check alfresco.log and share.log files. It gives you some additional information.

On the http://xxxx:8080/share, I see it on the top:

Alfresco and share logs... I don't see anything significant there.

Let's see if I can attach them here... No. Don't see an option to attach.

alfresco.log is here: https://file.io/YZjnYk 

share.log is here: https://file.io/YehRKM 

Does installing version 6.1.2 install the share service? The docs are silent on that.

The distribution file alfresco-content-services-community-distribution-6.1.2-ga does contain ./amps/alfresco-share-services.amp. Do I need to install it manually into Tomcat? How?

Appreciate your help.
