Last updated on NOVEMBER 16, 2022

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version to [Release 10.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform. Checked for relevance on 08-Apr-2014


After restarting the Grid Control Server, the Apache Server can not be started:

opmnctl startall
opmnctl: starting opmn and all managed processes...
opmn id=hostname.domain:<PORT> 
5 of 6 processes started.

ias-instance id=EnterpriseManager0.hostname.domain

--> Process (pid=19068)
failed to start a managed process after the maximum retry limit

The <OMS_HOME>/opmn/logs/HTTP_Server~1 log file shows the below error message:

<OMS_HOME>/Apache/Apache/bin/apachectl startssl: execing httpd

[Fri Aug 7 16:37:36 2009] [warn] pid file
<OMS_HOME>/Apache/Apache/logs/ overwritten -- Unclean shutdown of previous Apache run?

'opmnctl status' shows that all required are running except for the HTTP_Server:
