EDG: Managed Servers Fail to Start due to Missing Directories/Files After Bootstrap (Doc ID 1587661.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 13, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version 11.1.1.7.0 to 11.1.1.9.181008 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Installing and configuring an enterprise deployment of WebCenter as documented in Oracle® Fusion Middleware Enterprise Deployment Guide (EDG) for Oracle WebCenter Portal.

Error is reported starting the WebCenter managed servers in the new node after running pack and unpack to bootstrap the domain configuration:

[Deployer:149158]No application files exist at '<DIRECTORY_PATH>/domains/<DOMAIN_NAME>/aserver/applications/<DOMAIN_NAME>/custom.webcenter.spaces.fwk'...

Above error is very similar to the one reported in the troubleshooting section (16.9.4) of the EDG.

The solution suggested in the EDG does not resolve the problem.

Changes

Final enterprise deployment configuration includes the following:
3 Hosts:  1 dedicated host for admin server (ASERVER), 2 hosts for clustered managed servers (MSERVER)

Admin Server NAS file share is mounted only to the Admin host per EDG chapter 4 instructions.

Admin Server NAS file share is mounted only to the Admin host per EDG chapter 4 instructions:
<DIRECTORY_PATH>/aserver

Admin Server's DOMAIN_HOME and application folder paths as configured (NFS Mounted):
<DIRECTORY_PATH>/aserver/domains/<DOMAIN_NAME>
<DIRECTORY_PATH>/aserver/applications/<DOMAIN_NAME>


Managed Server's DOMAIN_HOME and application folder path as configured (local file system):
<DIRECTORY_PATH>/mserver/domains/<DOMAIN_NAME>
<DIRECTORY_PATH>/mserver/applications/<DOMAIN_NAME>

 

Run pack and unpack to bootstrap the domain configuration in the new node.
