Stop and Start Service Commands Not Working as OPC User

In some cases, when using sudo systemctl stop essbase.service, as opc user, there was no response to the stop (or start) command, and the service did not change its run state.

Workaround: If Essbase service doesn’t stop or start, using these commands, then use oracle user, and the scripts in esstools, to do the following:

  1. As opc user, sudo to oracle user:
    sudo su oracle
  2. Then, as oracle user, access the script path:
    cd /u01/config/domains/essbase_domain/esstools/bin
    and stop, and then start, the services using scripts:
    ./stop.sh
    and
    ./start.sh
  3. (Optional) Run status.sh script to see results of the commands.
