Last updated on FEBRUARY 24, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software - Version 2.0.6.0.0 and later
Linux x86-64
Oracle Virtual Server x86-64

Symptoms

In Exalogic Virtual racks, issue of Guest vServers shutdown and start Jobs running indefinitely without completing is noticed. Checking the vServer status on the Compute Node on which shutdown or startup operation is triggered we notice that the vServer is already stopped or started (depending on the task whether it is stop or start). But the Job from EMOC is still running at OVM Manager task of shutting down or starting the Virtual Machine.

Checking the OVM Manager job logs we notice that corresponding OVM jobs for shutdown/startup are also still in progress without completing even though the actual vServer already started (or) shutdown on OVS level.
