Last updated on DECEMBER 06, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle HTTP Server - Version and later
Oracle Fusion Middleware - Version and later
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)


Following Oracle Documentation to start Node Manager as a Windows Service (overall goal to automatically start on reboot):

1.3.1 Registering Node Manager as a Windows Service

- Note that it is not supported to start OHS as a Service, see <Note 1946552.1> "Is it Possible to Automatically Start OHS 12c Instance via Microsoft Windows Service? ".    


When attempting to start the OHS using "startcomponent.cmd ohs1", it fails with the following errors, when nodemanager was already started via services.msc:


ohs_nm.log shows:
