Oracle SES Startup Issue

This is with regards to startup issues with Oracle Secure Enterprise Search version 10.1.8.4.0

Issue:

When issuing searchctl stopall command there is a prompt to enter password. Upon entering the password, an error is reported that the id/password is not valid. Though the same password was allowing successful login to the SES Admin console.

Resolution:

Execute the following command before issuing the searchctl stopall

export ORACLE_SID=ses
export ORACLE_HOME=/INSTALL_LOCATION/Oracle/ses1/
export PATH=$PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/bin
sqlplus sys/mypassword as sysdba
startup

This starts the Oracle Database. Now you can stop and start the SES instance successfully.

./searchctl stopall
./searchctl startall
