NodeManager Fails To Start Oracle Analytics Server OBIJH Java Process With Error: CreateProcess Failed (Error 193) (Doc ID 2832578.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 12, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Analytics Server - Version and later
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)


Oracle Analytics Server (OAS) was installed on the MS Windows OS platform, and all services / processes started successfully.

After OAS was stopped (to enable Bundle / CPU Patches to be applied) and started, the BI Java Host (OBIJH) process now fails to start.

The following error is observed in the nodemanager.log:-

<ProcessManagementPlugin: SystemComponentManager.createProcess()>
<ProcessManagementPlugin: Process.start()>
<Server start command for OBIJH server 'obijh1' failed due to: [nodemanager.c:585: CreateProcess failed (error 193)]. Please check Node Manager log and/or server 'obijh1' log for detailed information.>
< nodemanager.c:585: CreateProcess failed (error 193)
at weblogic.nodemanager.util.WindowsProcessControl.createProcess0(Native Method)
at weblogic.nodemanager.util.WindowsProcessControl.createProcess(

On further troubleshooting (with NativeVersionEnabled=false), the following error is observed:-

<Server start command for OBIJH server 'obijh1' failed due to: [Cannot run program "<JAVA_HOME>\bin\java" (in directory "<DOMAIN_HOME>"): CreateProcess error=193 ... not a valid Win32 application
