Oracle Weblogic 10.3.6, Recreating Node Manager Service, Weblogic Admin Console Services after Windows 8.1 upgrade

We have recently noticed something very interesting about Oracle’s services were absconding (means not to be seen) from Services listing, however the Oracle products are intact in all other means.

Earlier we shared a post explaining recreating the missing database services. Today we will try to explain how you can recreate missing Weblogic services. You MUST have Administrative access to the box, and en elevated command prompt (right click, start as administrator)

Assuming you have installed the Weblogic 10.3.6 server in the folder “D:\WebLogic\Middleware>” let us start

Start an elevated command prompt. Switch to “D:\WebLogic\Middleware>”

Let us do an old DOS trick to print all the .cmd files available with the repository

D:\WebLogic\Middleware>dir *.cmd /s > D:\weblogic_cmd_files.txt

Double click open the weblogic_cmd_files.txt file you just generated. The file must have following entries

If you really know where exactly the .cmd files are, you may go ahead with the rest of the exercises. So the Node manager installer script is residing under D:\WebLogic\Middleware\wlserver_10.3\server\bin folder. Switch to the folder and execute the .cmd file

image

D:\WebLogic\Middleware>cd wlserver_10.3\server\bin

D:\WebLogic\Middleware\wlserver_10.3\server\bin>installNodeMgrSvc.cmd

Executing the .cmd file should create a new service and available to start within services console.

So once we created the Node Manager Service, we can start re-creating the optional service(s). We will limit ourselves to Weblogic Admin Console service, which is the maximum for our exercises. You may refer to our other post about installing & Configuring Weblogic 10.3.6 for details about creating individual services for Forms and Reports services.

Based on the application domain(the directory export will clearly give you an idea of the folders where components are installed) you have chosen during the installation, switch to the domain folder now

D:\WebLogic\Middleware\user_projects\domains\appsdomain

Here is where you will find the scripts you have modified earlier during an installation cycle (following our earlier posts)

D:\WebLogic\Middleware\user_projects\domains\appsdomain>InstallWindowsService_Ad
minServer.cmd

D:\WebLogic\Middleware\user_projects\domains\appsdomain>echo off

…………

…………

D:\WebLogic\Middleware\user_projects\domains\appsdomain>ENDLOCAL

D:\WebLogic\Middleware\user_projects\domains\appsdomain>

Check your Windows Services console, and you must find a new service “beasvc appsdomain_AdminServer” listed

Bravo, let us check whether the newly created services are REALLY working once after they were freshly created.

Weblogic Admin Console

So we are done, let us start the Forms & Reports Servers now.

We hope this helps :)
