The services shown dont startup initially,
but on waiting for some time and checking again,
the three OC4J instances and so forms get started up..
This error crops up typically after a clone on the target instance.
To resolve the error, I tried editing the parameters in opmn.xml under INST_TOP,
oc4j_status, which was disabled earlier , now enabled it.
start_timeout , previously having value 600....changed to 1800.
Even then,errors show up in the startup log file.....though the services startup slowly.
