    Essbase server is not starting after upgrade from to

    user243054 - oracle

      We have upgraded our EPM system from to (I have done the Apply Maintenance) all other services are started perfectly however when i try to start Essbase server its not starting.

      $ ./startEssbase.sh
      Starting Essbase.properties
      Apache Ant version 1.7.1 compiled on June 27 2008
      Buildfile: /appl/hypr/xxx/Oracle/Middleware/EPMSystem11R1/common/config/
      Finish Essbase.properties

      I have also tried the below as well..
      $ ./opmnctl start
      opmnctl start: failed.

      $ ./opmnctl status
      opmnctl status: opmn is not running.

      I have also checked the disk space and there is no problem with the diskspace

      Note: Eveytime when i start my Essbase server it is creating one file called core.103XXX when i open this file its in unreadble format.

      The time stamp is not changing to today's date in the below log files




      Can anyone kindly help me out what should i do to start my Essbase Server.

          Have you checked the opmn logs to see if it indicates why OPMN is not starting.

            Hi John,

            Thanks for your reply. I have checked the opmn. log file (/appl/hypr/amihysbx/Oracle/Middleware/user_projects/instancename/diagnostics/logs/OPMN/opmn) and there is no information logged into that log file with today date. The last this was updated was on 2012-12-20 that was before the did the upgrade from to

              Do you see any errors in the windows event viewer after attempting to start it?

              • 4. Re: Essbase server is not starting after upgrade from to
                Doesn't look it is running on a windows OS to me.

                Anyway, did you run through the essbase configuration again after applying the maintenance release?

                When starting opmn is only the following being outputted

                $ ./opmnctl start
                opmnctl start: failed.

                can you try with the following to see if it outputs anymore information

                ./opmnctl verbose start

                  Can you try to re-configure it ..Pleae note:don't change any settings while configuration it may affect the other essbase servers too.

                    I have done the reinstall and configured it and now the essbase sever has started. I am not sure why my opmn was not starting after the apply maintenance. I have also raised an SR with Oracle and i will update all once i get any response with them. Thanks john for all your help.
