Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Node Manager is not starting via the command line. For example:

INFO: Loaded node manager configuration properties from '/u01/oracle/Middleware/ADF/wlserver_10.3/common/nodemanager/nodemanager.properties'
Node manager v10.3

Configuration settings:

Turning on FINEST debug only gives this information:

<Nov 21, 2014 3:02:57 PM> <FINEST> <ADFDomain> <ADFServer1> < Checking if process from lock file is running :40615>

At that point, the process startup hangs.
