Created a Java Container, inserted a large string of startup-options (cut and paste from wordpad) in enterprise manager. Saved, and from that moment on the application server refused to update the repository. Commands like ‘opmnctl status’ didn’t work anymore, Enterprise Manager will not start etc. The old ‘dcmctl getstate -v -d’ showed me that all my containers were out of sync, either configuration and application. Happened a lot with the 9.0.4-version of the application server, but in 10.1.2.0.2 on Linux?
It appeared to be that there was a ‘invalid’ character in opmn.xml, in the line of the Java startup-option (damn’d Wordpad/MS). No worry, updated opmn.xml, ‘dcmctl updateconfig’ and…. Unfortunately, this did’nt work either (
ADMN-705024). Stopping opmn, killing processe, starting? no. Note 577972.1 helped me out this time, with one interesting new point in it.
