"Broker not started" error during installation

I got a “Broker not started” configuration error when I try to install Broker 7.1.2 on RHEL4 using Installer 7.1.

According to WmInstallLog.txt (debug level 10):

I had a same problem… are you using root user for installation??

Best workaround would be to start the broker server manually after the installation and then using MWS, create a new default broker on it.

PLS remember, incase u are not using root user, then you might have to change a bit broker startup script.

Start the Broker Monitor using following command
S45broker71 start
If the above command gives error,edit the file S45broker71
1)comment the lines (Depending on your env.)

ULIMIT_CMD=“ulimit -H -n 8192”

and

ULIMIT_CMD=“ulimit -H -n 8192”.

  1. Also edit if [ ${USER_NAME} != ‘root’ ] to if [ ${USER_NAME} = ‘root’ ]

Then start Broker server S45broker71 start
