You should have seen a set of Activities for each of the samples. Something is wrong. Can you check your app server log (jboss turn key it's under install home/jboss/server/all/log). Also check that you have a recent version of Flash installed for your browser.
Gary,<br />I am unsure (mostly unlikely) if the following message in server.log is a problem:<br /><br />2008-07-13 00:59:00,734 ERROR [com.adobe.livecycle.remoteevents.client.RemoteEventClient] Client JGroup initialization failed to connect to service JGroup. Maximum retries exceeded.<br />2008-07-13 00:59:00,734 INFO [STDOUT] Jul 13, 2008 12:59:00 AM com.adobe.workspace.events.RemoteEventClientLifeCycle$RemoteEventInitThread run<br />SEVERE: null<br />com.adobe.livecycle.remoteevents.client.RemoteEventConnectionFailedException<br /> at com.adobe.livecycle.remoteevents.client.RemoteEventClient$RemoteEventReceiver.<init>(RemoteEventClient.java:213)<br /> at com.adobe.livecycle.remoteevents.client.RemoteEventClient$RemoteEventReceiver.getReceiver(RemoteEventClient.java:159)<br /> at com.adobe.livecycle.remoteevents.client.RemoteEventClient.<init>(RemoteEventClient.java:361)<br /> at com.adobe.workspace.events.RemoteEventClientLifeCycle$RemoteEventInitThread.run(RemoteEventClientLifeCycle.java:65)<br /> at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:595)<br /><br />But everything else works fine. It is just the samples that I cannot see in workspace.<br /><br />Can I approach tech support about this? <br /><br />thanks,<br />RA
I did have this problem once (it was on a Mac VMWare Fusion using the JBoss Turn Key for Windows)
I fixed it by using the command line JBoss, using b localhost and turning off my Windows Firewall. I am not saying you need to disable your Firewall, but you could try to see if that changes anything useful for diagnosing.
If you have access to tech support I think that you should ask indeed as they might have more info
Thanks for the help. I reached out to support and they sorted it out.
I had to go to Admin UI and:
1. Add a category
2. Go to Archive Admin and create taskmanager end-points
3. Then add the users to the right roles
I cannot figure out why the samples' installation did not take care of this.
It's great to hear you got the help you need. But yes, the samples always perform those steps during install. I have not heard of this failing before and I would be interested in the platform (app server, db) that you used or if this was just a simple turn key.
It was simple turnkey on Windows XP (Home though!).
Anything I can provide to you in the form of logs, db dumps that can help you figure this out if you want I would be more than happy to. Might help some other poor soul.
