Information in this document applies to any platform.
In the Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) log directory, ($ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/logs), one will find access_log and/or error_log files that have grown to 2GB in size which cause OHS to stop responding.
Note: This is for an Application Server install in a Grid Control home.
Notice that the error_log/access_log have no timestamp extension.
Without removing these files or moving them to a new name, the server fails to restart with the following error:
opmnctl: starting opmn and all managed processes...
0 of 1 processes started.
--> Process (pid=8765)
failed to start a managed process after the maximum retry limit
Oracle Grid Control has performed the installation
