Information in this document applies to any platform.
This problem can occur on any platform.


Starting up the Web Cache Admistrator process in Oracle Application Server 10g results in a timeout and eventual failure to come up. Following errors are seen in the event_log for Web Cache:

This server has 6 installations of OAS with 6 different owners. All other components come up in this installation and the other 5 installations without a problem.


This problem just began after the IP address on the server changed. The script was executed for all 6 installations. The strace output reveals Webcache Admin for 2 different installations/owners to be using the same shared memory key.
