    PSAdminException: Unable to start the domain

    SiddharthP

      Hi ,

      I have installed PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.0 from edelivery (B35825-62) for learning purpose on Oracle Virtual Box.

      OS: Windows 2008 R2 64 Bit

      DB: Oracle 11G R2(11.2.0) Server 32 bit, Client 64 bit

      People Tools 8.53 delivered with CS 9.0

      Tuxedo 11.1.1 as delivered

      Weblogic 10.3.6 as delivered

      JRockit 4.1 as delivered

      JDK 1.7

       

      I created Demo DB, App server, Webserver as per the People Tools 8.53 Installation guide for Oracle.

       

      SID=PSHRDEMO, HOSTNAME=Win2K8PS

       

      DB running, App Server running, Webserver running, only problem is for creating Domain.

       

      PIA booted without any errors using startPIA.cmd. Server is listening.

      <BEA-002610> <Dynamic Listener Service initialized.>

      <BEA-170027> <The Server has established connection with the Domain level Diagnostic Service successfully.>

       

      The only warning I got is: <BEA-002611> <Hostname "Win2K8PS", maps to multiple IP addresses: 127.0.0.1, 0:0:0:0:0:0:0:1>.

       

      After I invoked the command Boot Domain (peoplesoft) in PIA through psadmin.exe, I am getting the below error:

       

      Starting the domain....

      PSAdminException: Unable to start the domain

      Cause: com.peoplesoft.pt.psem.toolsadmin.common.utils.AdminException: null.

       

      No errors in the log files. stdout & err files not generated.

       

      I searched a lot on the web but no luck. Kindly shed some light as how to overcome this error.

       

      If needed I will post the log output.

       

      Regards,

      Sid

          Sorry, but I do not understand what your problem is actually. If you already started a Webserver, why do you want to create domain ?

          >After I invoked the command Boot Domain (peoplesoft) in PIA through psadmin.exe, I am getting the below error

          You told earlier that the problem was on the domain creation, now on boot using psadmin.exe ?


          Please clarify.

            I hope is the other way around ...

              Sorry Nicholas,

               

              I goofed up..I was making a mistake to start the PIA webserver through startPIA.cmd as well as with psadmin.exe (Boot Domain) command inspite the server being up. My bad.

               

              Anyways I checked, the domain is up with url:http://localhost:8000/psp/ps/?cmd=login&languageCd=ENG& but getting the below error:

               

              CHECK APPSERVER LOGS. THE SITE BOOTED WITH INTERNAL DEFAULT SETTINGS, BECAUSE OF: bea.jolt.ServiceException: Invalid Session.

               

              I cleaned the app server cache, IPC resources, modified the PTWEBSERVER password same as that with DB, encrypted it,checked the config.properties file its pointing to servername:jolt port, rebooted the app server as well as domain but no luck. I am able to login to app server through App Designer. App server logs generated without any error. Help appreciated.

               

              Regards,

                Changed the password for PTWEBSERVER as PTWEBSERVER in both DB & Webserver, encrypted both using encrypt_password PTWEBSERVER & PScipher PTWEBSERVER.

                 

                Changed Configuration.Properties & mapped psserver=127.0.0.1:9000 instead of PSHRDEMO1:9000. Error gone.

                 

                But after login to PIA using PS I get: Could not open registry. Registry name: EMPLOYEE.

                 

                select MSGNODENAME,LOCALDEFAULTFLG,LOCALNODE,PORTAL_NAME

                from PSMSGNODEDEFN

                where LOCALDEFAULTFLG='Y';   

                 

                returns PSFT_HR, Y,1,EMPLOYEE.

                 

                SELECT PORTAL_NAME, VERSION, STATUS FROM PSPRDMDEFN;

                 

                returns 0 rows.

                 

                Stuck here.

                  App server logs:


                   

                  PTWEBSERVER@win2k8ps GetWebProfile](1) Error: WebProfile has set incorrectly, PT_LPROPVALUE, null


                   

                  PS@Win2K8PS PortalRegistry](2) PrdmGet failed with error code 3, portal name EMPLOYEE


                   

                  PS@Win2K8PS PortalRegistry](2) CPrdm::LoadDefn failed with error code 3


                   

                  And this seems to be somewhat connected with PSPRDMDEFN table

                    There is a .dat file psprdmdefn.dat @c:\PT8.53\data I opened it in DM which has insert script for PSPRDMDEFN table for many Portal registry objects. I modified only the statement for EMPLOYEE:

                     

                     

                     

                     

                    INSERT INTO PSPRDMDEFN(

                    PORTAL_NAME,VERSION,

                    PORTAL_TEMPL_NAME,PORTAL_REMOTE,

                    PORTAL_HOSTNODENAM,PORTAL_ISFOLDERNAV,

                    'PPLSOFT',SYSDATE,'PPT','AA');

                     

                     

                     

                     

                    Cleared the App server cache,IPC resources, Web Server cache,shut down both the servers ran the above script restarted both servers, login to PIA through PS &..............Done..Sweet Success at last. Able to navigate any link on the page.

                     

                     

                     

                    Will try later for other Portal registry Objects in PSPRDMDEFN.dat.

                     

                     

                    Thanks Anyways.

                     

                     

                     

                     

                    Note: This is to be done only if PSPRDMDEFN table is blank.
