Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Starting EAP using simbolic Link
  • EAP plug-in throws the following error when I try to start the host controller:

    java.lang.Exception: This Resource's connection properties contain errors: [Start script '/usr/local/EAP/jboss-eap/bin/' does not exist.]

  • Red Hat JBoss Operations Network (ON) 3.1.1, 3.1.2
  • Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 6
  • JBoss EAP management plug-in for JBoss ON
  • A symbolic link is created which points to the JBoss EAP installation -- For example, if JBOSS_HOME is /opt/jboss/jboss-eap-6.1.0.GA:

    ln -s /opt/jboss/jboss-eap-6.1.0.GA /opt/jboss/jboss-eap
  • Start script connection setting for JBoss EAP domain or host controller resource has been set to use a start script under a symbolic link -- For example, /opt/jboss/jboss-eap/bin/
