SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP2


When trying to register a client to RMT server following error message occurs:

Your Registration Proxy server doesn't support this function. Please update it and try again.

Log file /var/log/nginx/rmt_https_error.log shows following error message:

2020/12/08 10:25:44 [error] 13913#13913: *22 connect() failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream, client: <rmt-server-ip>, server: <rmt-server-name>, request: "POST /connect/subscriptions/systems HTTP/1.1", upstream: "", host: "<rmt-server-name>"

Following command 'journalctl -u rmt-server' shows:
Dec 08 10:50:33 <server-name> systemd[1]: Started RMT API server.
Dec 08 10:50:34 <server-name> rails[26817]: => Booting Puma
Dec 08 10:50:34 <server-name> rails[26817]: => Rails application starting in production Dec 08 10:50:34 <server-name> rails[26817]: => Run `rails server --help` for more startup options
Dec 08 10:50:34 <server-name> rails[26817]: A server is already running. Check /usr/share/rmt/tmp/pids/
Dec 08 10:50:34 <server-name> rails[26817]: Exiting

Checking rails process, the pid is always differently:
ps auxf|grep rails _rmt 27230 100 3.1 202836 57360 ? Rsl 11:09 0:01 /usr/bin/ruby.ruby2.5 /usr/share/rmt/bin/rails db:create db:migrate RAILS_ENV=production From service definition the service is type simple and restart always: /usr/lib/systemd/system/rmt-server.service


systemctl stop rmt-server

Remove the pid file if there is no running process:

rm /usr/share/rmt/tmp/pids/

then restart service:

systemctl start rmt-server


Pid file still exists while no running process.
