siebel Failed to start Core Services – This can occur when sourcing the siebenv.sh as root then trying as the oracle user:
[oracle@devtwo siebsrvr]$ . ./siebenv.sh Failed to start Core Services: Failed to create watchdog termination file. Aborted
It may be best to reboot the VM prior to doing the steps below.
- Backup the regss15: files in the /tmp directory, Example:
cd /tmp mv regss15:123483357904896 regss15:123483357904896.bak mv regss15:123483357904896.pid regss15:123483357904896.pid.bak
- Login as root, change the ownership of watchdog.keepalive (or just do the entire directory)
cd /u01/app/ses/siebsrvr/mw/.mw/core_data/devtwosblsrvr/ chown -R oracle:oinstall .
- Try to source siebenv.sh again as oracle
[oracle@devtwo siebsrvr]# . ./siebenv.sh
