Tuxedo Applicative Servers Fail To Start After TUXDIR Had Been Clone Thanks To Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) In Silent Mode (With A Response File Where ENABLE_TSAM_AGENT Had Been Set To FALSE) (Doc ID 1999019.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 04, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Tuxedo - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.



If Tuxedo 12cR2 (12.1.3) installation had been moved thanks to Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) clone feature by a steps by steps like here after:

1. Install Tuxedo (for example: ORACLE_HOME=C:\bea\tuxedo, ORACLE_HOME_NAME=OracleTuxedo1213)
2. Zip the contents of this ORACLE_HOME (tuxedo.zip)
3. Uninstall Tuxedo and remove any folders under C:\bea\tuxedo
4. Extract the tuxedo.zip back to c:\bea\tuxedo directory
5. Run the clone command:
cd C:\bea\tuxedo\oui\bin
setup.exe -silent -waitforcompletion -nowait -clone ORACLE_HOME=C:\bea\tuxedo ORACLE_HOME_NAME=OracleTuxedo1213 TLISTEN_PASSWORD=password


And if in OUI response file you set ENABLE_TSAM_AGENT to false then Tuxedo application will not be able to start.

Here after boot output example (with a PeopleSoft Application in this case):

Booting admin processes ...
exec BBL -A :
        process id=29021 ... Started.
1 process started.

How to prevent this startup issue after a Tuxedo 12cR2 installation made by OUI Clone feature?
