BEA-000362, incomplete error

with 4 comments

While setting up Service Migration in a small test setup on my laptop, I ran into this error:

<BEA-000362> <Server failed. Reason: There is either a problem contacting the database or there is another instance of ManagedServer_2 running>

It took me some time to figure out what the exact problem was. If the message was complete like this, problem solving would have been easier:

<BEA-000362> <Server failed. Reason: There is either a problem contacting the database or there is another instance of ManagedServer_2 running or the leasing table is missing from the database>

You can find the DDL for the default leasing table, called active, in a file called leasing.ddl which is located at $MW_HOME/wlserver_10.3/db/oracle/920 . If you happened to have changed the name for the leasing table, you obviously have to modify the leasing.ddl script accordingly.

Hope this helps.

  1. Ah, yes that is a bit of lazy coding by BEA, i.e. two or more quite different code paths – one being a genuine runtime error, the others (database down or all the other reasons the table might not be visible) are more of a configuration issue – raising the same error.

    • The big caveat is that for tlogs the table is created automatically, so I was off guard (it took me some time to fall back into my usual debug mode, which is my bad obviously).

  2. Thank you sooo much!! I’ve been dealing with this problem for almost two days! although in my case the table wasn´t missing but the password for the user LEASING had expired.

  3. Hi, another common problem is to choose a XA datasource, Database leasing will not work and will show the message:

    Choosing a non XA datasource will solve that.
