Unable to Start Oracle Unified Directory
On RHEL 5.6, installed Oracle Unified Directory 184.108.40.206.0 from ofm_oud_generic_220.127.116.11.0_disk1_1of1.zip.
After installation into $MW_HOME/Oracle_OUD1 and configuration don't start the directory server as the directories $MW_HOME/Oracle_OUD1/logs and $MW_HOME/Oracle_OUD1/locks are not created by the oud-setup program. Create these manually before starting the directory server. If the directory server is started by oud-setup, then you are unable to stop using the stop-ds command because there is no server.pid file (stop-ds looks for this in the locks directory). I ended up de-installing/re-installing when this first happened.
When trying to start using start-ds, the following error message is thrown:
severity=SEVERE_ERROR msgID=2359728 msg=The LDAP connection handler defined in configuration entry cn=LDAP Connection Handler,cn=Connection Handlers,cn=config was unable to bind to 0.0.0.0:389: IOException(Address already in use)
cp -p config.ldif config.ldif.bak
Then issue start command.
Thanks to a anonymous reader for sharing the correct location as to where the true stop/start commands are:
and issue the start command from there.
