Oracle Process Manager (asinst_1) where asinst_1 is the instance name you chose while configuring the forms & reports 11g. We noticed that once after upgrading Windows 8 to Windows 8.1, almost all the Oracle services (database, weblogic related) were been removed from the windows services database, which forced us to re-create them manually!
Our Weblogic server was installed for the lab, hence none were accessing them once after the first level tests. Thus we were not aware of the issues related to OPMN, which were usually started by Application Instance services during each boot (unless start mode set manual)
Here we are providing you a quick method to create the missing Oracle Process Manager (<instancename_1)” service using Windows command line
from an elevated command window, issue the following command (please alter the paths according to your installation physical locations)
C:\WINDOWS\system32>SC CREATE "OracleProcessManager_asinst_1" binPath="D:\Weblogic\Middleware\Oracle_FRHome1\opmn\bin\opmn.exe -S -I D:\Weblogic\Middleware\asinst_1" type= own start= auto
Note: Optionally you can add DisplayName string for the service you want to create along with the command line.
If the service creation was successful you should receive a confirmation, other hand an error message
“[SC] CreateService SUCCESS” or Error Message
You may stop OPMN manually, and then try to start the newly created service to confirm the service creation was successful.
That’s all folks!
