    I’ve installed a trial of Small Business Terminal Server. However I’m having issues with the nxserver services starting.

    The debug logs are reporting that the  Service ‘nxserver’: File ‘/usr/NX/var/run/nxserver.pid’ does not exist.

    I’m also seeing this error in the standard logs: 34766 34766 2023-03-29 12:42:27 858.905 NXSERVER WARNING! Process ‘/usr/NX/scripts/setup/nxserver –checkservices’ with pid ‘34783/34783’ finished with exit code 1 after 0,071 seconds.

    This has been deployed on a fresh build CentOS 8 workstation

    OS Ver:  Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.7 (Ootpa) with Gnome
    NoMachine SBTS Ver: nomachine-small-business-terminal-server_8.4.2_1_x86_64

    I’ve tried an RPM re-install and a complete removal and install. However I’m still coming across this issue.

    A copy of the debug nxserver log is attached.




    We aren’t aware of similar issues with RHEL 8.

    When you reinstalled did you remove all traces of the installation? I.e did you do:

    sudo rpm -e nomachine-small-business-terminal-server
    sudo rm -rf /usr/NX /etc/NX

    If not, please reinstall and remove traces, then reinstall.

    After which, we’ll need logs from the NoMachine server side. Follow the instructions here: https://kb.nomachine.com/DT07S00243 and then submit them to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com using the topic’s title as the subject of your email. Thanks!
