The purpose of this document is to provide additional details for the FMw11g Discoverer Administrator/Desktop installation based on the following instructions:

Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle Portal, Forms, Reports and Discoverer 11g Release 1 (11.1.1)
2.7.7 Manual Configuration for Oracle Discoverer (Windows Only)

If Oracle Discoverer is installed and configured using the Install Software - Do Not Configure option and Configuration Tool, some manual steps need to be performed to create the Windows registry entries for Oracle Discoverer Administrator and Oracle Discoverer Desktop. Run the following java command to do so:

java -classpath ORACLE_HOME_DIR\discoverer\lib\disco-config.jar;ORACLE_HOME_DIR\oui\jlib\OraInstaller.jar;ORACLE_HOME_DIR\opmn\lib\iasprovision.jar -D java.library.path=ORACLE_HOME_DIR\oui\lib\win32\oraInstaller.dll oracle.disco.install.config.DiscoUtil -oraclehome ORACLE_HOME_DIR -tnsadmin TNS_ADMIN_DIR

  • Replace ORACLE_HOME_DIR with the full path to your Oracle Portal, Forms, Reports, and Discoverer Oracle Home directory
  • Replace TNS_ADMIN_DIR with the path to the directory where the tnsnames.ora file is located. If this file does not already exist, create it and supply the directory in place of the TNS_ADMIN_DIR variable.
  • The Java class path must be set properly with the -classpath parameter.
  • The java.library.path must be set to the directory containing OraInstaller.dll.

This document will detail additional potential problems that may be encountered with a possible workaround/solution to get Oracle Discoverer Admin/Desktop 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) configured successfully after installing it with "Install Only" option.
