MC Installation Issue

I am trying to install MC on Redhat. After the initial installation is over I get the "start OK" message and on accessing the webui page and I go through accepting the license it goes through the 4th step and I get the "Waiting to reconnect" message. Immediately it loops and starts from the beginning and then I get the following message "MC master phrase already captured". I am not sure what is going on. Has anyone encountered this. Any help would be much appreacite.


  • What's the rpm version used for the MC installation?
    can you check the mc log and it can be find on /opt/vconsole/log

  • @merito, did you try restarting MC at the command line and check.

  • Thanks for the responses. I was able to resolve the issue. It was a Group creation issue.

  • @merito, could you elaborate as this helps all.

  • There were permission issues in creating the VERTICADBA group. Hence the installer was going into a loop and the error was occurring after the first iteration. I uninstalled the MC and created the group manually and then installed everything was OK.

  • Thanks, Merito.
