Nothing Happens When Executing Allocations and No Logs Created (Doc ID 2645858.1)

Last updated on MARCH 16, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Financial Services Profitability Management - Version 8.0.7 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Oracle Financial Services Analytical Applications (OFSAA)
Oracle Financial Services Profitability Management (PFT)


After installing the 8.0.7 PFT Pack, when executing Allocation Rules from the user interface or via a Batch, nothing happens.  The rule is not executed.

Allocation log files are not created.

Checking the SERVER_AM_LOG_TRACE_XXXXXX.log in /<ftpshare>/logs/SERVERS, the following messages exists for the Allocation Engine:

GetChildStatus : Child Terminated normally. Exit code = 253
Sigchild Handler : Child process incorrectly terminated. Child status set to Failure


AM_Waitpid : ECHILD - The process or process group specified by pid does not exist or is not a child of the calling process or can never be in the states specified by options
Sigchild Handler : Call to Waitpid - WNOWAIT Failed. ERRNO = 10 : msg = No child processes
Sigchild Handler : Exit

As a result, users cannot run any Allocations.
