StartWebLogic.sh weblogic.management.ManagementException: Unable to obtain lock AdminServer.lok

Hi,

When you start Weblogic Server via StartWebLogic.sh, you can get ” weblogic.management.ManagementException: Unable to obtain lock on /home/oracle/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home/user_projects/domains/PrimaveraP6EPPM/servers/AdminServer/tmp/AdminServer.lok. Server may already be running ” error.

 

When i check AdminServer log, i saw following errors.

/usr/java/jdk1.8.0_181-amd64/bin/java -server -Xms256m -Xmx512m -cp /home/oracle/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home/wlserver/server/lib/weblogic-launcher.jar -Dlaunch.use.env.classpath=true -Dweblogic.Name=AdminServer -Djava.security.policy=/home/oracle/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home/wlserver/server/lib/weblogic.policy -Dweblogic.ProductionModeEnabled=true -Djava.system.class.loader=com.oracle.classloader.weblogic.LaunchClassLoader -javaagent:/home/oracle/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home/wlserver/server/lib/debugpatch-agent.jar -da -Dwls.home=/home/oracle/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home/wlserver/server -Dweblogic.home=/home/oracle/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home/wlserver/server -Dweblogic.management.username=weblogic -Dweblogic.management.password=weblogic123 weblogic.Server

There are 1 nested errors:

weblogic.management.ManagementException: Unable to obtain lock on /home/oracle/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home/user_projects/domains/PrimaveraP6EPPM/servers/AdminServer/tmp/AdminServer.lok. Server may already be running

 

 

This error means, you have Weblogic server lock and more than one weblogic server running on same server.

 

Go to Weblogic server home and find DAT extension files

cd /home/oracle/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home/user_projects/domains
find . -name "*.DAT"

 

 

Remove these DAT files

rm -rf ./PrimaveraP6EPPM/servers/AdminServer/data/store/diagnostics/WLS_DIAGNOSTICS000000.DAT
rm -rf ./PrimaveraP6EPPM/servers/AdminServer/data/store/default/_WLS_ADMINSERVER000000.DAT

 

Find .lok extension files and remove them.

find . -name EmbeddedLDAP.lok
rm -rf ./PrimaveraP6EPPM/servers/AdminServer/data/ldap/ldapfiles/EmbeddedLDAP.lok


find . -name EmbeddedLDAP.lok
rm -rf /home/oracle/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home/user_projects/domains/PrimaveraP6EPPM/servers/AdminServer/tmp/AdminServer.lok

 

 

Check 7001 port or 7002 or which ports are using with netstat command

netstat -lntp
kill -9 PID

 

Kill this process and start Weblogic Server again with following script.

 

nohup sh /u01/app/user_projects/domains/PrimaveraP6EPPM/bin/startWebLogic.sh -Dweblogic.management.username=weblogic -Dweblogic.management.password=dev12345 &
