Managed Server Stuck At FORCE_SHUTTING_DOWN After Shutdown Was Requested

(Doc ID 2360256.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 13, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After shutting down a managed server, its state is stuck at FORCE_SHUTTING_DOWN instead of finally changing to SHUTDOWN.
WLST script is used for lifecycle management.
To stop a managed server, the script connects to the AdminServer and uses the /ServerLifeCycleRuntimes/shutdown() mbean.
If NodeManager is stopped and started again, the state of the affected managed servers is changed to show the correct value.
