Problem Starting FMS Server
Is there any IP I can connect to and take a look?
So, according to the Linux command line, the server is running (it still saying
# All threads loaded and running )

Well, We're behind a firewall here and unfortunately the last gent's who were here and set this all up(about 3 years ago) left no documentation on anything. We're currently working to try and figure out exactly what we're dealing with.

So it's my understanding that outside connections aren't something that can be accomplished (but to be honest, I'm not sure...) Is there anyway I would be able to check and see?

That's correct.
It shows like this:
[email protected]:~# pandora_server /etc/pandora/pandora_server.conf

It remains at [email protected] without ever giving error when it goes down
This is really strange,

I would do the installation from the SVN again:
svn co pandora_server

cp /etc/pandora/pandora_server.conf /tmp/
cd pandora_server
./pandora_server_installer --install
(Pay attention to see if you have dependencies problems)
cp /tmp/pandora_server.conf /etc/pandora/

Just to confirm,the webconsole you're using is from the SVN as well as the servers, right?
Yes, you're correct.

I'll give your instructions a go and let you know what comes of it.
Thank you for your assistance!
Cool, I'm going to bed.
I will see what you got, tomorrow morning.

Good luck!

I decided to just do a fresh install. I reinstalled both the server & console from SVN, deleted & rebuilt the db, and this time was able to get the data server up and going, and it ran all night without going down!

Thanks for all of your help with the issue. I'm not sure where I flubbed something up during the install, but apparently I found a way to.

Is there a way to make each service start at startup of the server? Currently it seems configured that each must be manually started...

I REALLY appreciate all the time and help you've provided. Thanks a ton!
Yes, you just need to create the links (assuming you are in runlevel 2, you can find out in which runlevel you are just running: runlevel)

ln -s /etc/init.d/pandora_server /etc/rc2.d/S90pandora_server
ln -s /etc/init.d/pandora_recon /etc/rc2.d/S90pandora_recon
ln -s /etc/init.d/pandora_network /etc/rc2.d/S90pandora_network
ln -s /etc/init.d/pandora_snmpconsole /etc/rc2.d/S90pandora_snmpconsole
ln -s /etc/init.d/pandora_plugin /etc/rc2.d/S90pandora_plugin
ln -s /etc/init.d/pandora_prediction /etc/rc2.d/S90pandora_prediction
ln -s /etc/init.d/pandora_wmi /etc/rc2.d/S90pandora_wmi
Next time use:
pandora_server_installer --install

It will create all for you, I guess you just did:
perl Makefile.PL
make install

Which is correct, but pandora_server_installer will create everything for you (all the directories, create the links I wrote above etc etc)

Anyways, congratulations! :-)
