No application machine is available to service any funcationality in DBA domain

After a recent clone of OTM loosely based on method described in http://otm62.blogspot.com, when we brought up the services, the following message appeared on accessing the OTM URL:

Error found handling the request.
No application machine is available to service any funcationality in DBA domain.

glog.exception.log was showing this error:

File too large zip error: Output file write failure

Recently while zipping a few directories for a clone, I got this error when the file size became greater than 2 GB.

File too large

zip error: Output file write failure (write error on zip file)

I tested the file system's ability to create files greater than 2 GB by creating a dummy 3GB file:

dd if=/dev/zero of=3gb-file bs=1024k count=3000

The 3 GB file got created without issues.

Then I checked the zip version.

What languages and currencies are enabled in EBS

Raghava asked me about the languages and currencies being used in a new instance which has gone live. For languages we have this query:

select language_code
from fnd_languages
where installed_flag='I'

For currencies, I told him that in EBS all currencies are enabled. I executed the following query:

select CURRENCY_CODE,symbol
from apps.fnd_currencies
where enabled_flag='Y'

It returned 71 rows.

Total rows in fnd_currencies was 249.

However, I thought of a more logical way of getting this data. That would be to query transaction tables. Which transaction table to query here ? I queried dba_segments for the largest objects:

select object_name,bytes
from dba_segments

inspection.wsil shows incorrect hostname

In SOA Suite the inspection.wsil URL is:

http://soahostname:soaport/inspection.wsil

However this was showing the physical hostname of the server on which SOA Suite was installed. We had configured SOA to listen on virtual names. Rajiv Bhalla provided the solution to this problem by providing the My Oracle Support Article: Applications like Oracle IPM fail to retrieve WSDL's to SOA composites via URL's that use different protocol/hostname/port than they are configured to [ID 1290812.1]


Solution
1.Access the WebLogic server Admin console: e.g. http://host:port/console.


2.From the left pane, use the following path through the hierarchical menu to (more...)

java.lang.NegativeArraySizeException

On starting weblogic on Solaris 10, I got this error

Could not load the performance pack that can take advantage of /dev/(e)poll device due to:
java.lang.NegativeArraySizeException.

I checked ulimit:

ulimit -n
65536

I reduced ulimit to 65534:

ulimit -n 65534

and weblogic started up fine.

I remember reading somewhere that java has array overflow issues if ulimit is set to maximum.
