  • 1.  Multiple VSE issue

    Posted 06-03-2020 05:41 PM
    Hello All,

    I am facing issues while creating multiple VSEs in the same server.  I am able to create and service is running under services.msc. However, it is not showing up in the Portal or workstation. Can someone please help.

    Steps followed:

    1. Copy VirtualServiceEnvironmentService.exe to VirtualServiceEnvironmentService2.exe.
      This file is in the LISA_HOME\bin directory (for example, C:\Programs Files\CA\DevTest).
    2. Create a new vmoptions file named VirtualServiceEnvironmentService2.vmoptions and put the following properties in the file.
      -Dlisa.vseName=tcp://hostname/Devtest10 VSE4
      -DLISA_LOG=Devtest10 VSE4.log
    3. Add the VirtualServiceEnvironmentService2.vmoptions file to the LISA_HOME\bin directory.
    4. Repeat for each additional VSE service.
    5. To define the service, use the following command.

      sc create "DevTest10 VSE4" binpath= "E:\CA\DevTest\bin\VirtualServiceEnvironmentService2.exe"

    6. Stop and start the DevTest components.

    Hi Harish,

       Steps which you have mentioned are correct to create multiple VSE services. Please remove spaces in below properties in vmoptions file and restart the service. If you still see an issue, please attach Devtest10_VSE4.log file.

    It is working now. Looks like space is the issue.
    Thanks, Srikanth.

    Hi Srikanth ,

    Can you please let me know how can I restart my vse server as I tried to reboot it due to lot of error count it was getting on services deployed on it. Can you please let me know how to restart the VSE.

    If you are starting them as Services, look at the documentation at

    If you want to start them as Server components, then Goto DevTEst_Home/bin folder and execute the VirtualServiceEnvironment.exe or execute it from command line.

    Hi Saurabh,

    If Windows setup then you can execute the .exe files in lisa_home bin folder (or check in services.msc if its running as a service). For Linux/unix, execute the .sh files associated with virtual service environment.

    Hi Harish,

    Do try the path without space in vmoption file.

    For troubleshooting, instead of running services.msc based service, try executing the virtualServiceEnvironment2.exe from cmd and observe for any errors/success. Once, started successfully you can stop the cmd and run the associated service from services.msc
