Gateway status stuck at "won't_start"


CA API Gateway - All versions


One of the failed upgrade task stuck in the DB.

Below is the sample error which we would see in the ssg logs /opt/SecureSpan/Gateway/node/default/var/logs/ssg*.log.

ssg_0_0.log:2015-10-20T21:10:37.028-0600 INFO 1 com.l7tech.server.util.GatewaySanityChecker: Running upgrade task: upgrade.task.800003=com.l7tech.server.upgrade.Upgrade71To80IdProviderReferences.


  1. Steps to clear this upgrade task from DB:
    • Log into Gateway -> Option 3 -> enter root password
    • service ssg stop
    • #mysql 
    • mysql> select propkey from ssg.cluster_properties;
    • Check if the upgrade task from the log is available in this table and delete all upgrade.tasks using the command:
      *Note: There may be more than one upgrade task, which may indicate the upgrade of the db was not complete
      mysql> delete from cluster_properties where propkey='upgrade.task.800003'; 

  2. Reboot the machine.
