Error Starting BRM Service With Pin_ctl (Doc ID 1989563.1)

Last updated on APRIL 03, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 7.5.0.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 7.5.0.9.0 version, Operation Management / pin_ctl

When starting BRM service (for example, cm) with pin_ctl, an error message is displayed, although the service is started successfully.
It seems that there is an error when creating the BRM service PID file (for example, cm.pid). This error does not occur when starting the service with the START script, like start_cm.

The user has all BRM installations of ExaLogic machines following Oracle Exalogic Owners Guide. As on section 6.1 Overview of Network Requirements, the different options for networks are mentioned....
Management network
InfiniBand private network
Client access network
Additional networks (optional)

So, in cm/pin.conf file, there are three options for cm_name:
#- cm cm_name brm-priv.xxx.com
  - cm cm_name brm-des.xxx.com
#- cm cm_name brm-exxxx.xxx.com

When pin_ctl is run with cm_name as the hostname (as defined in /etc/hosts), cm starts properly and there is no error thrown from pin_ctl.
When pin_ctl is run with cm_name other than hostname, even though cm starts, but pin_ctl ends up throwing error.
