Service Temporarily unavailable

This has happened to me twice now.

VCAC 6.0 is all setup and working, VCAC Appliance, VCAC SSO and Windows IAAS all setup.

I have configured a tenant and an endpoint within and have started to configure groups (fabric and business)

I logged out and left VCAC alone for a few days (got on with real life)

When I go back to login to my VCAC Console the login dialog box appears but when I attempt to login I get an error in the browser:

Service Temporarily Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

The URL bar says:

https://vcac.blacksun.localnet/shell-ui-app/org/blacksun/saml/websso/sso

Both appliances and the Windows box are up and have no errors.

Last time this happened I ended up rebooting both appliances and then waiting for 30 minutes at which point I was able to login and get sessions back again as I did before.

This is a lab that I setup from scratch myself and when it works everything is working perfectly.

any help appreciated.

Looking into this a little further I think this is related to the vcac tc server being dead:

vcac:/var/lib/vcac/server/logs # /etc/init.d/vcac-server status

Status-ing tcServer

Instance name:         server

Runtime version:       7.0.35.B.RELEASE

tc Runtime Base:       /var/lib/vcac/server

Status:                NOT RUNNING

the last entry in the catalina.out logfle at 01:00am this morning says:

Restarting the vcac server returns the service but I'm almost 100% sure it will be dead again tommorow.

This is only a demo/POC install at this time but it is really not giving me a good impression.

Any clues on what is causing this and what the fix is would be greatly appreciated.
