Unable to Register DSCC Agent With Error "Port (3997) is already in use by [dsee7/var/dcc/agent/] on this hostname" (Doc ID 1579600.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 26, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.7.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

A previously registered agent was improperly removed or lost, and it was necessary to recreate/register an agent with the DSCC ADS instance.  An error "(Port (3997) is already in use by [/opt/dsee7/var/dcc/agent/] on this hostname)" is encountered running dsccreg add-agent.

  

  
So [/opt/dsee7/var/dcc/agent] has not been registered in DSCC on cipher.oracle.local.
