or try this, one must work:

Fail To Start Application Server Due To Corrupted Dcm.Conf File

    * fact: Oracle9i Application Server Enterprise Edition 9.0.2.x
    * symptom: Starting mid-tier Application Server from Enterprise Manager (EM)
    * symptom: Error in Enterprise Manager
    * symptom: oracle.sysman.emSDK.util.jdk.EMException
    * symptom: ADMN-100999
    * symptom: base exception: oracle.ias.sysmgmt.exception.PersistenceException:
    * symptom: Distributed Configuration Management (DCM) dcm.conf file is zero bytes in size.
    * symptom: Invalid DCM Configuration File, <$9iAS_HOME/dcm/config/dcm.conf& gt;
    * symptom: Infrastructure starts up successfully.
    * symptom: Mid-tier Server Components Not Starting Due To Corrupted dcm.conf File
    * symptom: Mid-tier DCM log <$9iAS_HOME/dcm/logs/dcmctl_logs/log.xml> records the errors from dcmctl command
    * symptom: see base exception for details
    * symptom: 'dcmctl getstate -v' return errors
    * cause: The cause of this problem is still undetermined


Recreate dcm.conf file.
1. Go to <$9iAS_HOME>/dcm/repository
2. Do 'strings cluster' at command prompt, this will give cluster name
   eg: C_138.

   Do 'strings instance' at command prompt, this will give cluster name

   For instance_id drop the prefix "C_" from cluster_name
   Set repository_type to "db" if mid-tier is associated with
   Otherwise set it to "init"
   eg: repository_type=db

3. Edit <$9iAS_HOME>/dcm/config/dcm.conf file and add the following lines
   with values derived in previous steps
4. Run dcmctl
5. Check whether a line containing cluster_id is added into dcm.conf file.

hope this helps!
