Lasso Professional 8.6 Server Fails to Start at Boot on CentOS 5.x

Note: As of Lasso Professional 8.6.3, this fix is no longer necessary.

Problem
Lasso Professional 8.6 does not start automatically when booting into CentOS 5.

Answer
The root user defaults to requiretty in the sudoers file. This restricts the use of `sudo` to a logged in session.

Solution:
Edit the /etc/sudoers file to disable requiretty for the root user.

  1. As root, run `visudo`.
  2. Arrow down until you see 'Defaults   requiretty'.
  3. Press the 'i' key.
  4. Add this line 'Defaults:root !requiretty'.
  5. Press the 'Esc' key.
  6. Enter ':wq' to write and quit visudo.
  7. Restart the machine to confirm Lasso has started.
  8. After restart, enter the command `ps ax | grep -i lasso`
  9. If Lasso has started, you should see something like:
   2558 ?   Sl  0:00 ./Lasso8Service
   2569 ?   Sl  0:19 ./Lasso8Service --nolisten --ischild --siteid=1 --sitename=default --pipename=lassosite_8.6_1 --workingdir=LassoSites/default-1
