Upgrading Forms 10g R1 to Oracle 11g R1 – Day 4

July 30th, 2010 by Rajender Singh · 2 Comments

Today while restarting my WLS_FORMS server, I came across a error “The file store “WLS_DIAGNOSTICS” could not be opened because it contained a file with the invalid version 1. A file of version 2 was expected.

Part of Error Log was as follows:
#### <> <> <> <1280499317750>

There are 1 nested errors:

weblogic.store.PersistentStoreException: [Store:280073]The file store “WLS_DIAGNOSTICS” could not be opened because it contained a file with the invalid version 1. A file of version 2 was expected.

After lot of searching and headbanging I came across following thread http://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=684783

I followed the advice of the user “user2696444” and did as follows:

Step 1. Shutdown Servers (including Weblogic Admin Server plus opmn components)

Step 2. Under DOMAIN HOME (in my case it was D:\oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\ClassicDomain) I search for *.DAT and deleted those files with capital letters .DAT and not small letters .dat

Step 3. Under DOMAIN HOME then I search for *.lok and deleted all the files that I found.

Step 4. Then Started Admin Server plus all the other servers including opmn components.

that it, after that I could see my WLS_FORMS in green and up :)

    Like he says, make sure you don’t delete the lowercase .dat files! I didn’t read carefully enough and I deleted all the .dat files, instead of just the uppercase ones and it ruined my domain.

    Thanks Mate, that will surely help somebody as we tend to forget small details!
