Cannot find Alfresco Repository on this server. (Does this application have access to alfresco-g...

Searching the internet, this seems to be a common error. I have tried the solutions suggested on the internet, but none of them solve this problem. Where should the alfresco-global.properties file be located? I have it under c:\software\tomcat\apache-tomcat-8.5.61\shared\classes\  Any suggestions how to fix this problem?

I have configured my database in this file. I am also seeing other errors on the tomcat command line when I start tomcat:

Caused by: javax.xml.parsers.FactoryConfigurationError: Provider for class javax.xml.parsers.SAXParserFactory cannot be created

Caused by: java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: org/alfresco/util/log/log4j/SanitizingPatternLayout has been compiled by a more recent version of the Java Runtime (class file version 55.0), this version of the Java Runtime only recognizes class file versions up to 52.0 (unable to load class [org.alfresco.util.log.log4j.SanitizingPatternLayout])

You need to use Java 11.

Re: Cannot find Alfresco Repository on this server. (Does this application have access to alfresco-g

Thanks for the reply! Changing to Java 11 removed a lot of the errors from the tomcat command line. I still have the error message on the browser, 'Cannot find Alfresco Repository on this server. (Does this application have access to alfresco-global.properties? Does this application have cross-context permissions?)' And on the tomcat command line, I still have one error. I will look at my Keystores again.

Re: Cannot find Alfresco Repository on this server. (Does this application have access to alfresco-g

Make sure following is updated in order to allow 'classes' directory in acs classpath:

shared.loader=${catalina.base}/shared/classes,${catalina.base}/shared/lib/*.jar

If you are not setting up ACS and Solr to communicate over SSL (mutual tls), try setting following property in alfresco-global.properties:

 

solr.secureComms=none #Possible values are: none, https

And set following variable in solr.in.cmd file:

 

 

set SOLR_ALFRESCO_SECURECOMMS=none

you can find steps here as well : https://javaworld-abhinav.blogspot.com/2020/12/setup-acs62-ga-and-ass14-distribution-stepbystep.html

Check this documentation for setup with mutual tls:

Keystore issue looks to be resolved. Now I have a new error:

Re: Cannot find Alfresco Repository on this server. (Does this application have access to alfresco-g

Can you share the full logs if possible, can't tell what happened with the log snippet?

Are you using transformation services or using legacy transformation?

To use legacy transformation service update the following the alfresco-global.properties, if that's something you are trying:

transform.service.enabled=false
local.transform.service.enabled=false
legacy.transform.service.enabled=true
# install alfresco-pdf-renderer and update <installationpath> accordingly
alfresco-pdf-renderer.root=<installationpath>/alfresco-pdf-renderer alfresco-pdf-renderer.exe=${alfresco-pdf-renderer.root}/alfresco-pdf-renderer.exe
# install imagemagick and update <installationpath> accordingly img.root=<installationpath>/imagemagick img.dyn=${img.root}/lib img.exe=${img.root}/convert.exe img.coders=${img.root}/modules/coders img.config=${img.root} img.gslib=${img.root}/lib
# install libreoffice and update <installationpath> accordingly
ooo.exe=<installationpath>/libreoffice/program/soffice.exe ooo.enabled=false ooo.port=8100 jodconverter.enabled=true jodconverter.officeHome=<installationpath>/libreoffice jodconverter.portNumbers=8100

Re: Cannot find Alfresco Repository on this server. (Does this application have access to alfresco-g

When you ask to share full logs, yes, I can but how would I do it? I wasn't setting out to use transformation services or legacy transformation. But I will set up transformation services to see if that might fix the problem.

Re: Cannot find Alfresco Repository on this server. (Does this application have access to alfresco-g

I set my transform service parameters in alfresco-global.properties

transform.service.enabled=false
local.transform.service.enabled=false
legacy.transform.service.enabled=true

The errors messages in the logs have changed. Now I have:

15-Jan-2021 23:42:10.007 INFO [QuartzScheduler_Worker-1] org.apache.catalina.loader.WebappClassLoaderBase.checkStateForResourceLoading Illegal access: this web application instance has been stopped already.

The error messages are the same except they they can't load different files :

Re: Cannot find Alfresco Repository on this server. (Does this application have access to alfresco-g

When i said logs, meaning it includes start to end till the time you start getting the error, i mentioned to setup transformation service since your earlier logs had errors related to it to make sure that setting is correct. You can't tell whether all apps started properly.

The errors seems more of environment setup issue. 

Please share how you have setup your environment and what all steps you followed.

Re: Cannot find Alfresco Repository on this server. (Does this application have access to alfresco-g

I fixed another problem I found. But I still have the same error when I try to start the server: "Cannot find Alfresco Repository on this server." Below is my current log. The current problem appears to be : 'One or more listeners failed to start.' I have been trying to follow the instructions here:  https://docs.alfresco.com/6.2/concepts/ch-install.html
