Last updated on NOVEMBER 16, 2022

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Recently attempted an Enterprise Manager 13c plugin deployment, which failed.

Now, attempts to start the EM13c OMS fail and point to errors in the nodemanager log file:

emctl start oms

Check Node Manager log file for details: /<middleware_home>/gc_inst/user_projects/domains/GCDomain/nodemanager/nodemanager.log

The nodemanager.log shows entries like:
