'hw_services' is not in RUNNING state


I tried to start up Oracle SOA Suite 10g using the standard "opmnctl startall" command. Unfortunately, the OC4J_SOA container did not start up and the opmn logs were showing the following error:
11/01/11 15:55:58 Start process
Warning: The flag AppendRatio=3 has been EOL'd as of 6.0_10 and will be ignored
11/01/11 15:59:12 log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (wsif).

I'm not sure why this happens, but the solution is simple.

1. Log in to EM as 'oc4jadmin' (http://server:port/em)

2. Expand "oc4j_soa", and you will see a list of applications

3. Select "hw_services" and start it up

  • Oracle SOA Suite 10g (
