$EM_INSTANCE_BASE/WebTierIH1/diagnostics/logs/OPMN/opmn/opmn.out has the following errors:

$EM_INSTANCE_BASE/WebTierIH1/diagnostics/logs/OHS/ohs1/Console~Ohs~1.log file has the following errors:

../Oracle_WT/ohs/bin/apachectl hardstop: httpd (no pid file) not running

Verifying the OHS component status gives that it is in STOP status:

$EM_INSTANCE_BASE/gc_inst/WebTierIH1/bin/opmnctl status

Processes in Instance: instance1
ias-component | process-type | pid  | status
         ohs1 |          OHS | 3677 | Stop

Restarting the OHS component will not generate errors but checking opmnctl status always shows the same PID (in this case its 3677) and in STOP status.

A successful restart of OHS component must change the PID value every time.
