Forms server for Oracle applications

I can't get the forms server for Oracle applications to start up after a reboot. The command is issued in the start...

up process as /usr/bin/su - appltest -c "nohup f45ctl start port=9200". This is supposed to start 2 processes, f45srvm and f45runw, but f45runw always fails. Oracle said to submit using nohup, but this hasn't fixed the problem.

The first place I would start is with the environment at the time that you run the f45ctl command. Try creating a shell script for the command that first dumps the environment to a file (ex. env > /tmp/boot.env). You should also get a list of the current processes (ps -ef > /tmp/boot.ps), and make sure that all the Oracle and network processes are running.

If this doesn't help, let me know if you are receiving any messages from f45runw.
