If the artifactory http port is already in use on a machine during startup, the log output will be a constant stream of the message:
"Could not parse ErrorModel. Forbidden"
It should say that Artifactory was unable to communicate to the access server.
Steps to reproduce:
- Configure a service (like Jenkins) to run on 8081
- Start Artifactory and observe the logs.
Note: A similar thing is likely happening when the access server port is in use. This makes it difficult to diagnose the problem properly when before we would have a stacktrace indicating the port was already in use. It would be much better if there was a clear [ERROR] log message in any case.
