Following a Change To Oracle Traffic Director, OTD Will Not Start As The 'obj.conf' File Has Become Truncated. (Doc ID 2053421.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 21, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Traffic Director - Version 11.1.1.7.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

OTD truncates <vs>-obj.conf file after changing an origin server IP Address through Admin Server console.

When trying to start the Server, the following errors are displayed:

[2015-04-27T04:16:49+02:00] [admin-server] [NOTIFICATION:1] [OTD-63011] [] [ecid: Ebr9Z0V2000000000] [rid: 0] [pid: 26669] for host 10.0.1.100 trying to POST /admin/restart-instance, service-j2ee reports: Exception: The operation failed with errors on the following nodes:[[ Error on node 'mx0000001811003': OTD-63586 An error occurred while restarting the server. For details, see the server log.]]
[2015-04-27T04:17:22+02:00] [admin-server] [NOTIFICATION:1] [OTD-63011] [] [ecid: c3P010J4000000000] [rid: 0] [pid: 26669] for host 10.0.1.100 trying to POST /admin/start-instance, service-j2ee reports: Exception: The operation failed with errors on the following nodes:[[Error on node 'mx0000001811003': OTD-63603 An error occurred while starting the server.
[ERROR:16] [OTD-10255] Error parsing file PRODH_LIVE-obj.conf, line 29, column 1: Expected ""
[ERROR:16] [OTD-10455] File server.xml line 61: Error processing element: Error processing file PRODH_LIVE-obj.conf
[ERROR:32] server initialization failed
]]


This starts to occur after manually changing the obj.conf file to add an "<If></If>" block.

It doesn't occur every time, but randomly.

STEPS

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1] Change something in the Admin Server console
2] Deploy changes
3] /admin-config/config-store//config/<vs>-obj.conf is truncated
4] //config/-obj.conf is truncated
5] Server won't start with above error.
