Bug: qbdbm-30.0-1.i386.rpm Linux Server looking for qbdbmgrn_31, not qbdbmgrn_30 (which is provided)
I am upgrading our Enterprise installation from 2018 to 2021 using the QuickBooksCAEnterprise21.exe installer. We're on a Centos VM that has done very well, and have little reason to doubt it is of fault in this circumstance.
Upgrade goes well in single-user mode, serving from the Centos server ("qbhost"), but it's throwing a H202 error on multi-user enabling. No problem; we've seen this before. Just have to make sure the new port is configured in QBGLOBALAPPCONFIG.INI. I thought this was where the error was until I inspected our /var/log/messages:
Oct 10 15:55:51 qbhost qbmonitord daemon: Accept is successful! Client connection accepted Oct 10 15:55:51 qbhost qbmonitord daemon: Message received at server. Oct 10 15:55:51 qbhost qbmonitord daemon: GetServerPort request received at QBDBPF server Oct 10 15:55:51 qbhost qbmonitord daemon: QBDB_ARGUMENT_ERROR: Errr retrieving Command Line Parameters root 32735 32682 0 15:55 ? 00:00:00 sh -c ps -efww | grep QBDBMgrN_31 | grep QB_qbhost_31 |grep port=
Uh... what's qbmonitord trying to do finding the port of the process QBDBMgrN_31? A quick file search reports no file of this name on the system. It's apparent qbmonitord is trying to filter the dynamic port assigned by QBDBMgrN_31 for the daemon, but we're using QBDBMgrN_31 in this installation! I strongly suspect this is why I can't get more than one QB21.0 user to access the server.
Can I get confirmation of this bug?
Update: Since I presently can't get the migration complete, I rolled back the VM. I checked the log out of curiosity, and the older version 28 also reports the same error, looking for a port assigned to QBDBMgrN_31. Weird.
Further observation: I don't know if the qbdbmgrn_28 is compatible with the 2021 database, but I thought I'd try serving it nonetheless. No difference. The 2018 database serves multi-users just fine to 2018 clients. I cannot get it to serve the converted-to-20201 format database as multi-user.
I did find a mention of a new port managing system in the section regarding firewalls as of version 2019 on. Seeing as I'm moving up from 2018, I'm wondering if this is part of a new kettle of fish regarding multi-user problems?
