Last updated on JANUARY 11, 2013

Applies to:

Oracle Secure Enterprise Search - Version 11.1.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Crawls stopped working. 

From SES Administration web app, Home > Schedules screen,
A previously working crawl was started by selecting "radio button" next to subject crawl schedule, and click "Start" button.
"Status" column changes to "Launching", and after 20 seconds or so, refreshing the screen shows "Status" = "Failed".
No log file is generated for the action.

The crawl statistics show a failed crawl, with an Error Log entry of "DBMS job execution error. Check the database job trace file.".

The SES query is still working, but cannot crawl the source for new documents to be indexed.
