#47480 Admin Console login window prompts for server restart when DS instance is not running.
Closed: wontfix None Opened 8 years ago by nkinder.

Admin console login prompts for "Initialization
Failure" when the DS instance is down. It gives an option "Yes" or "No" to
attempt to restart the Directory Server.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Directory Server packages along with Admin Server/Console
2. Run setup-ds-admin.pl to create DS instance and register it on Admin Server.
3. Run redhat-idm-console to login to the Admin Console. The login is
4. Stop the DS instance. service dirsrv stop.
5. Run Console to login to the Admin Console. It prompts
"Initialization Failure" and lets you choose "Yes" or "No" to restart DS
6. Select "Yes" to restart the Directory Server. The console vanishes.
7. Select "No" to restart the Directory Server. The console vanishes.

In both the cases, the console behaves the same manner. I don't understand why
it prompts "Would you like to restart directory server", when this can't be
achieved from console login prompt.

It should display "Server cannot be contacted", "Please start
the DS instance to login to console". And it should prompt only "Ok" button.

This feature does work, but you must use the "admin" account in the new authentication dialog box. If you use the rootDN account it gives an authentication error.

I was able to reproduce the console vanishing, only when I did NOT use the protocol in the admin url:


If I use


Then it works as expected.

Attaching patch that adds a default protocol if one is missing.
