WebLogic Admin Console 12.2.1.4.0 Is Not Starting Due to Coherence GE 12.2.1.4.0

Posted in: Oracle, Technical Track

In this post I’ll address the situation where, after installing Fusion Middleware (FMW) 12.2.0.4, the WebLogic Admin Server won’t start due to an issue reported on Coherence, one of the embedded components of FMW (Forms/Service Bus/SOA Architecture).

You will face this error even if you aren’t using Coherence when starting WebLogic Admin Console.

I recently faced this: Delaying formation of a new cluster; multicast networking appears to be inoperable on interface 192.168.0.100 as this process isn’t receiving even its own transmissions; consider forcing IPv4 via -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true>

If you encounter the error above, you’re facing two issues at same time.

  1. WebLogic is using IPv6 to reach internal components.
  2. You may need to apply Coherence patch # 32124456.

Step One (Configure WebLogic to prefer IPv4 communication):

1) Navigate to $DOMAIN_HOME/bin.
2) Backup the setDomainEnv.sh.

$ cp setDomainEnv.sh setDomainEnv-`date '+%Y%m%d'`.sh

3) Open the setDomainEnv.sh in edit mode.
4) Edit the JAVA_OPTIONS and add the below parameters on setDomainEnv.sh:

-Djava.net.preferIPv6Addresses=false -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true

Example:

JAVA_OPTIONS="${JAVA_OPTIONS} -Djava.net.preferIPv6Addresses=false -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true"
export JAVA_OPTIONS

# SET THE CLASSPATH

5) Save the file.
6) Now run the below command.

. ./setDomainEnv.sh 

# (Please observe the double dots in the command)

Reference: Coherence Member Failed to Join Multicast-Listener Cluster Intermittently With Error Delaying formation of a new cluster (Doc ID 2362920.1).

Step Two (Solving Coherence bug):

Apply the latest Coherence patch # 32124456—the downloadable link is available in the below document. Please search for 32124456.

$ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch apply 122147 -jdk $JAVA_HOME

Fixed Bugs List With Patch Downloads—Oracle Coherence 12.2.1.4.0 for Java (Doc ID 2616220.1).

Step Three:

1) Navigate to $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/AdminServer.

cd $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/AdminServer

5) Save the file.
6) Now run the below command.

. ./setDomainEnv.sh (Please observe the double dots in the command)

Step Four:

7) Start the Admin Server.
8) After following the above steps, please check if the Admin Server has achieved RUNNING status.

cd DOMAIN_HOME/bin
./startWebLogic.sh

I hope this information is helpful!
