Incompatible state when starting up a WebLogic managed server


After starting up the Oracle WebLogic 11g AdminServer server, you may get the following error when trying to start up any of your managed servers:

For server soa_server1, the Node Manager associated with machine LocalMachine is not reachable.
All of the servers selected are currently in a state which is incompatible with this operation or are not associated with a running Node Manager or you are not authorized to perform the action requested. No action will be performed.

This is simply due to the Node Manager not running.

1. Start up the Node Manager as follows:
export MW_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/middlware
cd $MW_HOME/wlserver_10.3/server/bin
nohup $MW_HOME/wlserver_10.3/server/bin/ &
Applicable Versions:
  • Oracle WebLogic 11g (11.1.1.x)

in console under Environment–>Machines–>[Machine2] –>Monitoring–>Node Manager , it showed node manager not reachable.

1. Check that Listen Address has ip address and not characters e.g. Localhost also that it is not empty.

2. Select SSL

3. From Domain structure on left, click on servers --> Admin_server

4. Check the Listen address that it does not have character and has ip address of the machine where it is installed.

Restart Admin server if necessary and check again.

Let me know if this helped.
