Were there any errors in the logs?   Here’s what I did and it seemed to work, what do you have different?


1.       Download 1.6.3 api binary:

2.       Unzip

3.       Create mysql database, and a user, and a password:

CREATE DATABASE grouper_v1_6_temp;
CREATE USER 'grouper_v1_6t'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'whateverpass';
GRANT ALL ON grouper_v1_6_temp.* TO 'grouper_v1_6t'@'localhost';

4.       Configure the

hibernate.dialect               = org.hibernate.dialect.MySQL5Dialect
hibernate.connection.driver_class = com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
hibernate.connection.url = "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/grouper_v1_6_temp hibernate.connection.username         = grouper_v1_6t
hibernate.connection.password         = whateverpass

5.       Configure the = etc:sysadmingroup = users in sysadmin group are all powered = habe

groups.wheel.use                      = true

6.       Init the DDL:

C:\temp\grouper_v1_6\grouper.apiBinary-1.6.3\bin>gsh -registry -check –runscript

7.       Save the grouper test users subjects.sql file in the grouper bin directory

8.       Run the test users file:

C:\temp\grouper_v1_6\grouper.apiBinary-1.6.3\bin>gsh -registry -runsqlfile subjects.sql

9.       Start GSH and see output saying that the group and membership are created:

Using GROUPER_HOME:           C:\temp\grouper_v1_6\grouper.apiBinary-1.6.3\bin\..

Grouper warning: cannot find group from config: key etc:sysadmingroup
Grouper note: auto-created key etc:sysadmingroup
Grouper warning: auto-added subject habe to group: etc:sysadmingroup
Type help() for instructions
gsh 0%

10.   Verify that the group and membership are there:

Type help() for instructions
gsh 0% GrouperSession.startRootSession();
edu.internet2.middleware.grouper.GrouperSession: 2d86126236e2452396abcd7b18f4d7eb,'GrouperSystem','application'
gsh 1% getMembers("etc:sysadmingroup");
member: id='habe' type='person' source='jdbc' uuid='4bf2345aba244a679c7c4a83c5b768e4'
gsh 2%

            Thanks for getting back to me, I tried this as well and it did not work.   I attached my updated for you reference.  Any other ideas?
