R12: Time Out on Stop Action for OC4J and Log Reports "Error: Password unavailable for OPMN flag on" (Doc ID 974386.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 22, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle E-Business Suite Technology Stack - Version 12.0 to 12.0.6 [Release 12.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Starting the OC4J processes (oacore, forms, oafm) for E-Business Suite R12.0 or R12. 1 is successful and the  command $INST_TOP/admin/scripts/ status reports all processes are up and running similar to:

Checking status of OPMN managed FORMS OC4J instance ...
Processes in Instance: VIS_<xxxx>
ias-component                    | process-type       |     pid | status
OC4JGroup:default_group          | OC4J:oafm          |   23110 | Alive
OC4JGroup:default_group          | OC4J:forms         |   17561 | Alive
OC4JGroup:default_group          | OC4J:oacore        |   23108 | Alive
HTTP_Server                      | HTTP_Server        |   23107 | Alive exiting with status 0


However when running the command to stop one or more of the OC4J (*) processes it takes about 2 minutes before script ends with the following:

You are running version 120.13
Stopping OPMN managed OACORE OC4J instance ... exiting with status 204 check the logfile .../VIS/inst/apps/<SID_server>/logs/appl/admin/log/adoacorectl.txt for more information ...

(*) The example shows results of the oacore OC4J. However exactly the same applies to the  forms and oafm OC4J when using their respective scripts.
The adoacorectl.txt reports the following:
12/07/09-13:32:44 :: version 120.13
12/07/09-13:32:44 :: Stopping OPMN managed OACORE OC4J instance
opmnctl: stopping opmn managed processes...
opmn id=<server.domain>:6200
    0 of 1 processes stopped.
ias-instance id=<SID_server_server.domain>
--> Process (index=1,uid=700593153,pid=23108)
    time out while waiting for a managed process to stop
12/07/09-13:34:46 :: exiting with status 204
In the LOG_HOME/ora/10.1.3/opmn/default_group~oacore~default_group~1.log the following is reported
09/12/07 13:32:44 Stop process
Error: Password unavailable for OPMN flag on
Note: The result is still that the OC4J process is terminated. This however is the result of kill performed on the PID after the time-out, rather then the OC4J process closing down properly after 'stop' notification.


In the reported case it appeared to be related to (preparation of) upgrade to newer AS10G release.
