    I deleted everything, then reinstalled using “rpm” instead of “yum” – and everything worked fine immediately. <scratches head>…..

    I guess this item can be marked closed, or whatever else is appropriate, since a response is no longer needed.

    FWIW, the problem was related to what you indicated. We had to create local accounts and groups for nx, since the Active Directory account for that name was not working. Is this requirement discussed in the documentation somewhere? We will be putting NoMachine on a lot of systems here, and we’d like to know if changes to our environment will be needed.

     

    Thanks

    Huh, did not know that. We are using Active Directory. I’ll try to manually create the home directory and see if that fixes the problem.

    Hi, thanks for that information. I’m sorry I did not respond sooner – I did not see your response until I checked this morning. I think I was expecting an email (my bad, not yours).

    I did what you suggested, and attached are the logs. This was done after a fresh installation from the RPM. Attached is a tarball containing the /usr/NX/var/log contents: nxd.log (empty), nxerror.log (empty), nxinstall.log, and nxserver.log. I scanned through the contents of the non-empty files, and I can’t detect an obvious reason for the failure – but I’m no expert. FYI, this was run on a recently-upgraded RHEL 7 system (see below). Is there any other information that might help with debugging the problem?

    Thanks

    Hmm. It was a fresh install. But we can try again and see if this helps.
