  3. Restart the Server Manager agent.

5.5 Troubleshoot the Management Agent Installation

This section describes:

5.5.1 Management Agent Installer Failed

If the Management Agent installer fails to complete, an exception screen is displayed. For details, examine the log file located in the Oracle\Inventory\logs directory:

Tip:

The log file location is displayed on the End of Installation screen for the Management Agent installer. Refer to the section of this guide entitled: Run the Management Agent Installer.

For example, the complete path and log file name might be:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Oracle\Inventory\logs\installActions2011-10-18-02-15-14PM.log

5.5.2 Management Agent Does Not Start

If the Management Agent does not start, verify that the port that the home agent is using is not used by another application. To determine the port that the home agent is using, view the e1agent_0.log file that is located in the root of specified installation drive in the installation directory of the Managed Home (the default value is JDE_HOME). This location is shown on the End of Installation screen when you installed the Management Console. For example:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Oracle\Inventory\logs\installActions2011-10-18-02-15-14PM.log

The log file should contain this message:

INFO: Starting the management agent listener on port 'xxxxx'

5.5.3 Management Agent Dies on Unix or IBM i

You must use the & switch when invoking the startAgent script to start the Management Agent as a background job. If you do not use the & switch, the Management Agent process terminates when the shell is exited on UNIX or shell is exited on IBM i.

5.5.4 Management Agent Cannot Manage Oracle Application Server on Unix

If you are using the Management Agent to manage an Oracle Application Server on a Unix platform, you must install the Management Agent with the same user and group as the Oracle Application Server. Use a directory listing to confirm that this is the case.

For example, this listing illustrates that the Management Agent was installed with user=oracle and group=oinstall:

This image is described in surrounding text.

If the Management Agent is not installed as the correct user or group, use the chown command to change the owner or group of the Management Agent. For example:

chown R oracle:oinstall /u02/JDE_HOME

5.5.5 Management Agent Cannot Start or Stop a Unix Enterprise Server

If you are using the Management Agent to manage a Unix Enterprise Server, you must install the Management Agent with the same user and group as the Unix Enterprise Server. Use a directory listing to confirm that this is the case.

For example, this listing illustrates that the Management Agent was installed with user=jde812 and group=jde812:

This image is described in surrounding text.

If the Management Agent is not installed as the correct user or group, use the chown command to change the owner or group of the Management Agent. For example:

chown R jde900:jde900 /u02/JDE_HOME

5.5.6 Management Agent Cannot Manage Secure Servers on WebSphere Application Server on IBM i

If you have trouble connecting to servers in a WAS profile for which administrative security is set to enabled, ensure that you have JDK 1.5 installed on the IBM i machine. The Management Agent needs security libraries from JDK 1.5 to connect to secure servers in WebSphere Application Server.

Tip:

The typical location for the JDK is:

/QIBM/ProdData/java400/jdk15

5.6 Deinstall a Management Agent

Any Managed Instances registered or installed with a Managed Home must be removed before the Managed Home itself can be deinstalled. For instructions on removing an instance, refer to Chapter 19, "Remove a Managed Instance".

You must deinstall a Management Agent running the Oracle Universal Installer on the same machine that was originally used to install it.

This section describes deinstallation of the Management for these platforms:

5.6.1 Microsoft Windows and UNIX
