nmKill() Does Not Stop A Managed Server on AIX (Doc ID 1383265.1)

Last updated on JUNE 29, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Middleware - Version to [Release Oracle11g]
IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)


In FMW on AIX 6.1, the managed servers can be started up via the node manager but stopping them does not work.

When starting a managed server, the following error is reported in the managed server <domain home>/servers/<managed server>/logs/<managed server>.out file: 

the nmKill() issues the kill signal but it is ignored by the managed server.  This is a generic problem and applies to any managed server.  

The node manager confirms on its log it has killed the process but the "ps" command at OS level shows the WLS managed server process is still running.  Also the WLS Admin Console shows the managed server is still up and running.
