or ends with a com.mchange.v2.resourcepool.BasicResourcePool$AcquireTask@17be3bb2 -- Acquisition Attempt Failed!!! warning.

Resolution:

Check your database settings. pulse is not able to connect to the database.

  1. Take a look at WEB-INF/conf/pulse.xml and check the database name, user and password for typing mistakes.
  2. Check the database user's privileges. pulse requires full privileges on the database it is using.
    If you are using MySQL, you check user privileges with SHOW GRANTS FOR 'user'@'host';.
