Oracle DBConsole service failed to start on Windows

If you have a database control of any database version on WINDOWS Operating System, some times OracleDBConsole Service failed to start with the following error, cause is not determined .

C:\>net start OracleDBConsole
The OracleDBConsolet service is starting..
The OracleDBConsole service could not be started.

If you check the status by using emctl  you can get the output below which is wrong.

D:\app\Inam\product\\dbhome_1\BIN>set ORACLE_UNQNAME=HOMERAC

D:\app\Inam\product\\dbhome_1\BIN>emctl status dbconsole

Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g is running.
Logs are generated in directory D:\app\Inam\product\\dbhome_1/or1_HOMERAC/sysman/log


To resolve the issue you can check the event viewer either of the below steps:
a) Start--> Run--> enter eventvwr
b) Start-> COntrol panel-->AdministrativeTools-->Event Viewer

  1. Stop the database control
  2. Please check if there is any process running with emagent, if so, kill/end the process.
  3. Delete the following files
  4. Now start the DBConsole from the services panel or by using the command "net start OracleDBConsole" or from control panel

This will start the service without any issues.

Some times agent is running and due to this reason the dbconsole service is not get started , you should check its status also and stop.
