No Pacific Application Server instance (oepas1) in new OE11.5.1 64-bit installation


No Pacific Application Server instance (oepas1) in new OE11.5.1 64-bit installation

  • I've installed PowerShell 4 and created Pacific Server without reinstallation (pasman create %WRKDIR%\oepas1). Now I can move in my Telerik demo studies

    Thank you Roy, thank you Irfan.



  • The next problem with PAS is: I can't start oepas1 service because of error - "Starting oepas1 in xxx.oepas1 (pacific Application Server for OpenEdge 11.5) has encountered a problem. Server oepas1 in xps.oepas1 (Pacific Application Server for OpenEdge 11.5) failed to start. "

  • Can you please share oepas1 agent log. You can find the log in $WRKDIR/oepas1/logs/oepas1.agent.log

    It give give us some information on why it did not start



  • The catalog is empty.

  • No logs at all ?



  • Yes. Studio is trying to run server for few minutes. Then diplays error message.

  • To know if the problem is with the Pacific Appserver, can you try starting the instance from proenv

    First clear all your olds if created for the instance.

    In proenv type

    pasman clean -I oepas1

    Now start your instance

    pasman start -I oepas1

    Note: -I means -(captial i)

    then you can look at the logs in $WRKDIR/oepas1/logs to see if it shows up any error in the agent or the server logs if  the instance does not start



  • ERROR from "run as administrator" context:

    Exception: The term 'cmd.exe' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try startupCmd at line :

    The instance alias name not registered - oepas1

  • So when did this exception occur ? I am not sure why you see access denied errors when you are running with Administrative privileges



  • After "pasman start" command in proenv (run as ...). In the first context "current directory" is "C:\Windows\system32", in second - "C:\OE11wrk\WRK".

  • The term 'netstat' is not recognized by PowerShell 4.0. Are you sure, it is suitable for OE11.5 (see previous "logs") ?

  • "netstat" need to work, please check why is it not working



  • I called Powershell_4.0 and tried to run "netstat" - it is not recognized. Is it recognized by PowerShell_3.0 ?

  • it should work for both the versions



  • netstat.jpg

    Could you review the screen view I added ?
