HomeCLC software: Important notificationsIssues affecting only versions of products released prior to June 2017Starting up CLC Servers on Mac systems, autumn/winter 2014

3.23. Starting up CLC Servers on Mac systems, autumn/winter 2014

This notification pertains only to CLC Servers running on Mac operating system and concerns only starting up the CLC Server after installing or upgrading the CLC Server software. The specific CLC software versions affected are given in the sections below.

 

Start-up issue for Mac OS X 10.7, 10.8 and 10.9

This problem will be seen for

  • CLC Genomics Server 6.5
  • CLC Drug Discovery Server 1.0
  • CLC Science Server 3.5
  • CLC Bioinformatics Database 4.0

If you choose the option during installation to start up the CLC Server after installation, it does not start up properly. To address this issue, please run the following two commands. Please note that only the second command should be preceded by sudo.

launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.clcbio.clcgenomicsserver.plist

sudo launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.clcbio.clcgenomicsserver.plist

 

Information for Mac 10.10 (Yosemite)

Supported CLC Server versions on Yosemite

Only the CLC Genomics Server 6.5.1 and CLC Drug Discovery 1.0.1 have been tested on Mac 10.10 (Yosemite). We do not anticipate any problems running versions 6.5 and 1.0, respectively, on Yosemite once the Server is up and running, but these earlier versions have not been tested on Yosemite and if you experience problems with them, we recommend upgrading your CLC Server software.

Known issue within initial CLC Server start up after installation/upgrade

An issue with the installer of the versions listed above leads to a problem installing the service script for starting and stopping the CLC Server on Mac systems running the 10.10 (Yosemite).

If you have already upgraded to Yosemite and plan to continue to run it, then the following instructions provide a work-around for this issue. Instructions are included for each supported, affected CLC Server.
