Troubleshoting Error: unable to get file lock, will retry …

Share

I ran into this error the first time I restarted Weblogic on one of my installs, the only reference that I was able to find is the error description below:

BEA-141281 Info:unable to get file lock, will retry …

Description This message indicates that WLS can not get file lock because other process still holds the lock. W LS will try again before timeout.
Cause This is an information-level message only.
Action If WLS fails to start due to unable to get file lock, then lock files need to be removed manually before restart WLS.

The funny thing is that it tells you to remove the locks but doesn’t provide their location, if you are running OBIEE 11g you can remove AdminServer.lok from: d:\oracle\fmw\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\servers\AdminServer\tmp If you are not using Weblogic in the context of Oracle Busines Intelligence you can do a file search for any lok files under your middleware home (d:\oracle\fmw).
