The daemon exits because of an error

The daemon exits because of an error

This article resolves situations in which when trying to start the daemon an error occurs and the daemon exits.


When the daemon is started from the Enterprise View host menu, it fails with the following error:

Starting daemon 1 ... 
OCI_ERROR: sqlrc=-1
Daemon 1 is already started.
Daemon exited because of error.
Error starting Daemon 1.


As the message suggests, the cause of the error might be that the daemon has already been started. To verify this, please use the following command (case sensitive):

ps -Af | grep KbY

This will list the active daemons and the database schemas for which they have been started.
