Issue:

Registry service is failing to start and throwing the below error in the logs: 

[main] ERROR com.itko.lisa.coordinator.TestRegistryImpl - The Enterprise Dashboard Server at 'http://localhost:1506' could not be contacted, and no current activation was found in the local activation cache for this registry. 

This registry will not be allowed to start until it can be activated by a valid Enterprise Dashboard Server. 

Environment:
DevTest 9.1
Cause:

DEBUG com.mchange.v2.c3p0.impl.DefaultConnectionTester - Testing a Connection in response to an Exception: 
com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerException: The transaction log for database 'REGISTRY_DB' is full due to 'LOG_BACKUP'. 

The Registry activation information is stored in DB and since it is unable to connect successfully, it is unable to retrieve the activation information. The DB is full and needs purging.


 

Resolution:

Configure EDB and Registry to start with default Derby DB and if you see that you are able start the Registry without any issues, then it confirms that the issue is with the DB being full.

Please contact your DBA to clear the old data and make some room for new one.
