Symptoms

While trying to start the BI opmn components, opmnctl starts all the BI managed processes, except the presentation server (coreapplication_obips1):

<mnt>/instance/BIInstance/bin/opmnctl startall fails to start the coreapplication_obips1 component, it errors with "failed to start a managed process after the maximum retry limit"

<mnt>/instance/BIInstance/bin/opmnctl status

Processes in Instance: BIInstance
---------------------------------+--------------------+---------+---------
ias-component | process-type | pid | status
---------------------------------+--------------------+---------+---------
coreapplication_obips1 | OracleBIPresentat~ | N/A | Down
essbaseserver1 | Essbase | 14885 | Alive
coreapplication_obiccs1 | OracleBIClusterCo~ | 14883 | Alive
coreapplication_obisch1 | OracleBIScheduler~ | 14884 | Alive
coreapplication_obijh1 | OracleBIJavaHostC~ | 14886 | Alive
coreapplication_obis1 | OracleBIServerCom~ | 15618 | Alive

I have attempted several times to start the presentation server, but all attempts return:
"failed to start a managed process after the maximum retry limit"
