System does not start after it crashes



The system does not start after it crashes. Error occurs during startup and the node does not display online.

Error Messages

[StreamServer.Default] [STANDARD] [ ] [ ] (prpc.service.ServiceDefinition) ERROR   - Failed to start service: [StreamServer.Default] Failed to bind to: /your_IP:7003

Steps to Reproduce

Not Applicable

Root Cause

Stream nodes utilize Kafka. Due to this, a separate process starts which uses certain ports. If a node crashes, it cannot issue a Stop request to the other process. Hence, it remains up and continues to use the ports.


Perform the following local-change:

Manually terminate the Kafka process such that the stream can bind to the default ports and start during the Pega node's startup.
