I have built a new 2-node molecule. It is up and running, but I am unable to manage configuration properties in the portal. Is this a known problem with a documented solution?
Looks like I finally got around this problem. Initially I was just getting the spinning gray circles in the Properties panel no matter what I tried. In one more attempt to fix the problem, I updated the Shared Web Server properties from the portal and I could see that it successfully updated the underlying container.properties file. Then, I was able to get the pulldowns to populate in Properties -> Advanced (but still nothing in Properties-> Basic). I made a change in the Advanced properties and clicked the checkbox to restart on SAVE. When I saved, it finally enabled me to get to Properties -> Basic to manage the molecule. No explanation for this bizarre behavior, but I'm glad that it is working now.
In either of the nodes' container.log, do you see anything of interest such as the request to retrieve the properties, errors doing so, or general initialization or connectivity errors/warnings?
No. That was part of what was so baffling. There were no error messages anywhere to point me in the right direction. I had to resolve it by determination and dumb luck!
If you're still having troubles I would recommend you submit a support case for more in depth troubleshooting and analysis.
