Trouble Shooting Installation

In case of any errors during installation, follow the steps given below to produce the logs files (applicable only for Linux).

  1. Create a text with the same name as that of the installer and with extension as ".sp". i.e, For <File Name>.bin, create a text file named <File Name>.sp

    Example: If the file name is ManageEngine_ApplicationsManager_11_linux.bin, create a text file named ManageEngine_ApplicationsManager_11_linux.sp


  2. Open the ".sp" text file in an editor, add is.debug=1 as the content.

  3. Save the ".sp" text file in the same directory where the binary file resides.

  4. Change to the directory where the binary file is present by executing cd command

  5. Invoke the installer as ./<File Name>.bin -is:javaconsole -is:log log.txt

  6. The above command will create the log file named log.txt. Mail the log file to appmanager-support@manageengine.com.

Note: If the execution of the installation command throws an error such as "there may not be enough temporary space available in the temp folder", then execute the file with the argument as


[for Windows]   - <File Name>.exe -is:tempdir $DIRNAME
[for Linux]        - ./<File Name>.bin -is:tempdir $DIRNAME 

where $DIRNAME is the absolute path of any existing directory.
