SOA/BPM 12c Servers are Failing to Create a Coherence Cluster While Deploying the OracleBPMBACServerApp and BPMComposer Applications (Doc ID 2001405.1)

Last updated on JUNE 28, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Coherence - Version 12.1.3.0.0 to 12.1.3.0.4 [Release 12c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The following errors are reported in the the instance's standard out log file, while starting a SOA server in a SOA/BPM cluster:

Oracle SOA Suite 12c utilizes an embedded Coherence cache to coordinate several cluster-wide activities, including composite deployment.  As a result an in-process coherence cluster is created while starting the SOA/BPM cluster.  In environments where there are hosts with multiple subnets/VLANS/infiniband-links, such as Exalogic, it is possible for this error to be encountered while the SOA/BPM applications are deploying.

As part of the SOA managed coherence server there is an additional Coherence instance started by each OracleBPMBACServerApp and BPMComposer application. When the BPM application's in-process coherence instance binds to an address:port combination that cannot communicate with the other instances in the cluster (the SOA/BPM/WSM managed coherence servers), the instance would wait to receive cluster heart beats from siblings until the cluster join start-up timeout has elapsed.  Once the timeout has elapsed, the above errors are seen and then the SOA servers are moved to a failed state.
