Tuxedo Applicative Servers Fail To Start After TUXDIR Had Been Cloned.Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) In Silent Mode With Response File Where ENABLE_TSAM_AGENT Set To FALSE.

(Doc ID 1999019.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 19, 2017

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 by Oracle Universal Installer (also known as OUI) clone feature using the following steps:

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 OUI response file the ENABLE_TSAM_AGENT parameter is set to false then the application server process, configured in the Tuxedo domain, will not be able to start.


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

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