Oracle Application Server 9i deployment error

Hi folks,

We are facing the following error while deploying an application through the Admin console on Oracle app server 9i:

"The configuration files for this Oracle9iAS instance are inconsistent with the configuration stored in the repository. In order to protect the repository, no further configuration or deployment operations are allowed until the problem with the configuration on the filesystem is resolved. This condition arises when a prior operation was unsuccessful. Please check the logs located at ORACLE_HOME/dcm/logs to determine why DCM was unsuccessful in updating the configuration files on disk. Some possible causes are: * permissions on files * file contention issues on Windows NT * EMD and dcmctl running concurrently * internal Oracle error After resolving the problem that prevented DCM from updating the configuration files, you may use the dcmctl resyncInstance command to resolve the problem. Alternatively, you can stop and then restart the active dcmctl or EMD process and resyncInstance will automatically be performed."

We don't have access to the file structure directly or to run it from the command-prompt in stand-alone mode because the server is maintained by another group. Does anybody know why this error occurs?

Thanks,
Mayank.

Looks like you're going to have to get that other group to deal with it

Hi CEHJ - its been a long time since we interacted ;-) I'm not regular here now. Do you at least know the cause of the error or a way to fix it? The other group is also clueless as to how to fix it.

I'm afraid i've no direct experience with this, but it seems to be one of the most explicit error messages you're ever likely to get

It asks to check in the logs - but there's nothing in there.

They tried a restart but it didn't help. They said the configuration has got corrupt but am not sure what went wrong and how it happened. There are other applications on the server so I don't think we can just replace the configuration files.

Restore it from the backup?

Closing it because the problem is resolved after restoring from a back-up which was very difficult to find, thanks to the other 3rd parties maintaining it ;-)
