Many issues may be quickly diagnosed and resolved by reviewing Virtuoso's .log file, typically located alongside the active .db file.

Figure 2.32. Mac OS X installer: Troubleshooting

The default instance log file may be opened in Mac OS X's Console.app by:

  • selecting

    from the

    V

    menu

  • right-clicking on the

    Virtuoso 7.1.app

    icon, select

    , and then drilling down to

    Figure 2.33. Mac OS X installer: Troubleshooting

    Mac OS X installer: Troubleshooting

  • executing the following command in

    Terminal.app

    :

    open /Applications/Virtuoso\ 7.1.app/Contents/virtuoso/database/virtuoso.log
    

Make sure that the license file, always named virtuoso.lic is in the correct location, as described above -- /Library/Application Support/openlink/Licenses/.

Restarting the License Manager may be necessary. Rebooting should always result in a running License Manager, but you can also use the Terminal.app :

cd /Library/Application\ Support/openlink/bin
./oplmgr -fd /Library/Application\ Support/openlink/Licenses

Acquire a non-expired license file, by purchase or conversation with Technical Support or your Account Manager, and replace the expired file with the non-expired, as documented .

Rebooting should always result in a running License Manager. You can use Terminal.app to check whether it's running:

ps -ef | grep oplmgr | grep -v grep

If no process is listed, these two commands should get it running:

cd /Library/Application\ Support/openlink/bin
./oplmgr -fd ../Licenses

If the process is listed, there are many possible causes, including firewall or other networking issues. Please allow our Support Team to assist you in diagnosis and resolution.
