How to delete Managed Servers in R12.2

The procedure to increase/decrease the number of oacore/oafm servers in R12.2.X is different from R12.1.x.
Because in R12.2.x OPMN is replaced by Weblogic Server.

Steps to delete a managed Server in R12.2.x

1. Ensure there is no active adop cycle.

2. Shut down the managed server which needs to be deleted from the cluster/domain.



$ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME/ stop oacore_server5

3. Execute the script  on the host where the managed server was created.

Source the RUN filesystem before running the command.

 perl $AD_TOP/patch/115/bin/ \
ebs-delete-managedserver \
-contextfile=<CONTEXT_FILE> -managedsrvname=<MANAGED_SERVER_NAME> \
-servicetype=<SERVICE_TYPE> -logfile=<LOGFILE>

Sample Output:

bash-4.1$ perl $AD_TOP/patch/115/bin/ \
> ebs-delete-managedserver \
> -contextfile=$CONTEXT_FILE -managedsrvname=oacore_server6 \
> -servicetype=oacore -logfile=$APPLRGF/TXK/delMS_oacoreserver6.log

Enter the APPS Schema password:
Enter the WebLogic AdminServer password:

ManagedServer oacore_server5 deleted successfully.

The above command deletes the managed server and also updates related parameters in context file

To Verify the entries are deleted in Context File,check the output of below command

grep -i oacore_server6 $CONTEXT_FILE

4.Execute the following command to delete details of the managed server from the OHS configuration files mod_wl_ohs.conf and apps.conf

$ perl <FND_TOP>/patch/115/bin/ \
-contextfile=<CONTEXT_FILE> \
-configoption=removeMS \
-oacore=<host>.<domain>:<port> \
-oafm=<host>.<domain>:<port> \
-forms=<host>.<domain>:<port> \
-formsc4ws=<host>.<domain>:<port> \
-ekanban=<host>.<domain>:<port> \
-accessgate=<host>.<domain>:<port> \

Sample Output:

bash-4.1$ perl $FND_TOP/patch/115/bin/ \
 -contextfile=$CONTEXT_FILE \


5. Restart HTTP Server

cd $ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME stop start

6. Repeat the above steps on PATCH filesystem.

Changing APPS Password in R12.2

APPS Password in R12.2 can be changed either using AFPASSWD or FNDCPASSS utility. AFPASSWD is an enhancement to FNDCPASS.
To change APPS password , follow the below steps

1. Shut down MT Services

2.Use the syntax below to change password.


Sample Output: Enter the ORACLE password of Application Object Library ‘APPSUSER’:
Connected successfully to APPS.
Enter the password for your ‘SYSTEM’ ORACLE schema:
Connected successfully to SYSTEM.  Working…
Enter new password for user:
Verify new password for user:
AFPASSWD completed successfully.

Note that, to change APPS password we need to give APPLSYS username in AFPASSWD syntax.
APPLSYS and APPS share the same password. Changing APPLSYS password using AFPASSWD utility changes APPS Password also.

3. After the password is changed, start only adminserver on RUN filesystem  using the script

Update the “apps” password in WLS Datasource as follows:
Log in to WLS Administration Console.
Click Lock & Edit in Change Center.
In the Domain Structure tree, expand Services, then select Data Sources.
On the “Summary of JDBC Data Sources” page, select EBSDataSource.
On the “Settings for EBSDataSource” page, select the Connection Pool tab.
Enter the new password in the “Password” field.
Enter the new password in the “Confirm Password” field.
Click Save.
Click Activate Changes in Change Center.

4. Start all the application services using

Troubleshooting "Nodemanager Associated with the machine is not reachable"

While trying to start Managed servers from the Administration Console, you may receive the below error

For server soa_server1, the Node Manager associated with machine Machine1 is not reachable. 
All of the servers selected are currently in a state which is incompatible with this operation or are not associated with a running Node Manager or you are not authorized to perform the action requested. No action will be performed.

To fix this issue.

1) Check is the nodemanager is running at OS level using command

$ps -ef|grep -i nodemanager 

2) Verify the nodemanager logfile has no errors

3)Check if the managed server is properly associated with the machine

4) Check the nodemanager configuration(credentials/ Hostname/Port number) details are correctly updated in Console

In the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
In the left pane of the Console, expand Environment and select Machines.
Select the machine for which you want to configure Node Manager.
Select Configuration > Node Manager.
In the Type field, select the Node Manager type from the drop-down list.
For more information on Node Manager types, see Node Manager Administrator's Guide.
Note: The values you provide here must correspond to the values you used to configured the Node Manager instance.
In the Listen Address field, enter the DNS name or IP address upon which Node Manager listens.
If you identify the Listen Address by IP address, you must disable Host Name Verification on Administration Servers that will access Node Manager. For more information and instructions, see Using Host Name Verification in Managing WebLogic Security.
Enter a value in the Listen Port field. This is the port where Node Manager listens for incoming requests.
If you have set the Type field to SSH or RSH, you should specify values in the Node Manager Home and Shell Command fields.
For more information on configuring Node Manager using SSH or RSH, see Node Manager Administrator's Guide.
Click Save.
To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes. 
Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).

Fusion Middleware FAQ's

1.What is the use of nodemanager in Weblogic?

Nodemanager enables us to startup/shutdown/maintain Managed Servers from console.
It is a Java utility that runs as separate process from WebLogic Server.
It is recommended to enable nodemanager in Clustered domains & High Availability Environments.

• Monitors server availability and can restart failed servers
• Can be used to migrate servers on a failed machine to Can be used to migrate servers on a failed machine to another machine

2.How to Check if nodemanager is running?

$ps -ef|grep -i nodemanager

3.How to Start/Stop Nodemanager?

Use the script to startup Nodemanager located in $WL_HOME\server\bin



$nohup ./

To stop nodemanager process, get the process id using the below command

$ps -ef|grep -i nodemanager

Kill the java process related to nodemanager at OS level

or Simple close the command shell in which nodemanager is started
