Debuggin in puppet fails 'boost::locale::conv::invalid_charset_error' - centos

OS: Oracle Linux Server release 7.1
Puppet --version: 4.10.10
When doing a puppet apply with -d option debugging terminates with below error.
Debug: Loading external facts from /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/cache/facts.d
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'boost::locale::conv::invalid_charset_error'
what(): Invalid or unsupported charset:ANSI_X3.4-1968

Have anyone faced this issue ?

localedef -i en_US -f UTF-8 en_US.UTF-8
This solved the issue.


thingsboard running on Raspberry Pi don't start after shutdown — cqlsh “Connection refused”

everytime that I shutdown and start the raspberry Pi 3 after a fresh and working Thingsboard instalation it won't start due to an error on cqlsh.
the Log file shows this error:
2017-02-03 23:27:07,556 [localhost-startStop-1] WARN o.t.s.dao.cassandra.CassandraCluster - Failed to initialize cassandra cluster due to All host(s) tried for query failed (tried: / (com.datastax.driver.core.exceptions.TransportException: [/] Cannot connect)). Will retry in 3000 ms
and running the command cqlsh I got:
pi#raspberrypi:~ $ cqlsh
Connection error: ('Unable to connect to any servers', {'': error(111, "Tried connecting to [('', 9042)]. Last error: Connection refused")})
How can I fix this error?
We have fixed issues with Cassandra and Thingsboard running on machines with low amount of RAM (1-2 Gb).
Please update your installation using latest installation guide.
problem solved!
while searching for the solution on Internet, I found someone saying to execute the command:
pi#raspberrypi:~ $ nodetool status
please set or unset MAX_HEAP_SIZE and HEAP_NEWSIZE in pairs when using CMS GC (see
That lead me to the problem!!!
I was making a mistake while editing the "".
I would suggest thingsboard to change your instructions to :
Find, UNCOMMENT and set memory options in /etc/cassandra/

Apache crashes with munmap_chunk(): invalid pointer after update to php7 on Jessie

I recently updated to php 7.0.4 on my server running a Debian 8.
here is what dpkg -l | grep php gives me:

My php applications run fine most of the time.But on some requests I just get a Page being generated for no foreseeable reason.
The /var/log/apache2/error.log states in such a case:
*** Error in `/usr/sbin/apache2': munmap_chunk(): invalid pointer: 0x00007efc6ddb4a50 ***

I'll give some more information:

Before the php update I did not see those errors. What is wrong here? Or how can I better find the source? I am lost here because this error occures kind of random. Sometimes the same request succeeds that faild with this error a minute ago. I would apprechiate your help.
That's now the second time we have been hit hard by the very same issue.
It happens when running PHP 7.0 on a up to date debian.
This will break any type of website system which heavily uses regular expression.
We have seen it iwth Neos ( or Typo3 (starting with 6.2).
In case it's not possible to use the testing version of the libpcre3.
Someone can disable the just in time compiling within the php.ini
Edit your php.ini add pcre.jit=0 anywhere you like
Restart your apache
Be happy
I have the same version and solved by upgrading libpcre3 like #Kevin Fischer write.
I was upgrade libpcre3 package form 2:8.35-3.3+deb8u4 (stable) to 2:8.38-3.1 (testing) version.
Step by step:
Add line deb testing main contrib non-free to /etc/apt/sources.list
Create file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/99default-release with content: APT::Default-Release "stable";
Run command apt-get update from root
Run command apt-get -t testing install libpcre3 to install testing version of libpcre3 package
Restart your server and check logs, error should be disappears.
For more info to install testing package see this question.
Warning! Testing packages can works incorrectly! Update in your own risk or wait new release.
We've just had a similiar situation, where one of our framework's components would fail us with:
*** Error in `php': munmap_chunk(): invalid pointer: 0x00007fdce5550060 ***
I can't tell you anything about the bug itself, but the cause of it was a broken libpcre3 version, namely 8.35-3.3+deb8u4. We we're running a custom build, because PHP7 requires JIT support from libpcre3, which isn't included in the default one our Ubuntu version comes with (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, 8.31-2ubuntu2.3). Upgrading the libpcre3 version solved the problem for us.
I also kept getting those nasty apache crashes, but none of the solutions above and on other websites were working for me.
After a lot of trial and error, I found out the root cause on my system.
I manually edited the PHP configuration and added two extensions. Both for Microsoft's SQL Server.
I added the following lines to the php.ini
I did not notice that I fogot the ".so" at the pdo driver.
After changing the lines as shown below, the Apache service is running fine again.

Jenkins CLI with HTTPS

My Jenkins server was switched to now using HTTPS. However, now when trying to run jenkins-cli.jar, I get the following error:
Exception in thread "main" Failed to connect to
at hudson.cli.CLI.getCliTcpPort(
at hudson.cli.CLI.<init>(
at hudson.cli.CLIConnectionFactory.connect(
at hudson.cli.CLI._main(
at hudson.cli.CLI.main(
Caused by: Remote host closed connection during handshake
at hudson.cli.CLI.getCliTcpPort(
... 4 more
Caused by: SSL peer shut down incorrectly
... 11 more
Is there any way to use Jenkins CLI over HTTPS?
This happens, for example when I try to run even just the help command:
java -jar jenkins-cli.jar -noCertificateCheck -s -i /home/auto/.ssh/id_rsa help
I encountered the same problem on one of my jenkins slaves.
Since the slaves were supposed to be identical, I started investigating the slightest differences between the machines.
As it turns out, the java version was slightly different:
java-1.7.0-openjdk- - On the working machine
java-1.7.0-openjdk- - On the failing one.
I reverted back to the earlier openjdk version and the problem was fixed.
Since you asked the question only a few days ago, I suspect we've encountered the same problem.
To check your version:
java -showversion -verbose 2>&1 | head -1
To install the previous openjdk version (on centos):
yum install java-1.7.0-openjdk-devel-1:
If you are using a valid SSL cert.
Checkout the jenkins-cli commands returning connect timed out
PS: This is not a solution but may be a workaround until a solution is found.

Unable to install RabbitMQ using puppet due to curl error

After having to downgrade the apt module of puppet to version 1.8.0 to clear some other errors I am not getting the current error:
==> dev_debian_dev: Error: curl -k --noproxy localhost --retry 30 --retry-delay 6 -f -L -o /var/lib/rabbitmq/rabbitmqadmin http://guest:guest#localhost:15672/cli/rabbitmqadmin returned 7 instead of one of [0]
==> dev_debian_dev: Error: /Stage[main]/Rabbitmq::Install::Rabbitmqadmin/Staging::File[rabbitmqadmin]/Exec[/var/lib/rabbitmq/rabbitmqadmin]/returns: change from notrun to 0 failed: curl -k --noproxy localhost --retry 30 --retry-delay 6 -f -L -o /var/lib/rabbitmq/rabbitmqadmin http://guest:guest#localhost:15672/cli/rabbitmqadmin returned 7 instead of one of [0]
==> dev_debian_dev: Notice: /Stage[main]/Rabbitmq::Install::Rabbitmqadmin/File[/usr/local/bin/rabbitmqadmin]: Dependency Exec[/var/lib/rabbitmq/rabbitmqadmin] has failures: true
The current module version is puppetlabs-rabbitmq (v5.2.1).
What do I have to do to get this working?
something you need work out in your environment and fix the proxy issue.
Failed to connect() to host or proxy.
In my case... to enable connection to the rabbitmqadmin I've enabled the plugin manually:
$ rabbitmq-plugins enable rabbitmq_management
$ /etc/init.d/rabbitmq-server restart
One valid workaround could be launch these commands from your puppet master.

Chef Selenium: rubyzip failure to allocate memory issue on Windows Server 2008

On Windows Server 2008 & 2008R2 the following exception occurs:
Error executing action `install` on resource 'chef_gem[rubyzip]'
Expected process to exit with [0], but received '1'
---- Begin output of C:/opscode/chef/embedded/bin/gem install rubyzip -q --no-rdoc --no-ri -v "1.1.7" ----
STDERR: [FATAL] failed to allocate memory
---- End output of C:/opscode/chef/embedded/bin/gem install rubyzip -q --no-rdoc --no-ri -v "1.1.7" ----
Ran C:/opscode/chef/embedded/bin/gem install rubyzip -q --no-rdoc --no-ri -v "1.1.7" returned 1
This does NOT happen on Windows Server 2012 & 2012 R2.
The Chef and Ohai gem installations (that occur during bootstrap) take more memory than the default 150MB WinRM allocates per shell on older versions of Windows (prior to Windows Server 2012) -- this can slow down bootstrap. Optionally increase the memory limit to 300MB with the following command:
winrm set winrm/config/winrs #{MaxMemoryPerShellMB="300"}
Also note:
Windows 2008R2 and earlier versions require an extra configuration for MaxTimeoutms to avoid WinRM::WinRMHTTPTransportError: Bad HTTP response error while bootstrapping. It should be atleast 300000.
winrm set winrm/config #{MaxTimeoutms=300000}
Adjusting the winrm settings did not fix the issue.
Rubyzip seems to be the issue with too many objects being allocated:
Replacing the rubyzip implementation with powershell fixed the issue:
