Jboss 6.3 timeout setting deploying Identitymanager

Blog Post created by Bill_Patton Employee on Jul 6, 2015

When reviewing a customers log recently I cam across this error: JBAS014781

More specifically:
ERROR [] (Controller Boot Thread) JBAS014781: Step handler$ServiceInstallStepHandler@3c34b64e for operation {"address" => [("core-service" => "management"),("security-realm" => "ApplicationRealm")],"operation" => "add","map-groups-to-roles" => undefined} at address [
    ("core-service" => "management"),
    ("security-realm" => "ApplicationRealm")

If I take this number and paste it into google it says:

Due to the message [JBAS013412: Timeout after [300] seconds waiting for service container stability.] it looks like a timeout issue , may be your application deployment/ other management operations taking longer than 300 seconds (300 sec is the default value). So try testing with a larger value to see if you still face the same issue or not?


You can try increasing this value to a higher value using the following system property:

You are at start up step 5, and that is the longest startup step in the IM steps.

This step is where it is loading environments and contacting the provisioning servers to read Provisioning roles, account templates, and endpoint properties.

The more of these objects there are the longer this step takes.

it is unique to your customer environment and will need to be tuned.

Some customers take 5 minutes at this step: 300 seconds

Some customers take 10 minutes at this step: 600 Seconds

Some customers even take 2 hours at this step: 7200 seconds.

You will have to look at your previous server startup times and make sure what setting to use.


This is a java option and will need to set it in the bat file you are using to start identityMinder


Something like:
