Information in this document applies to any platform.


In Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) 11g, jobs can be launched with either:

All of the above need to be able to connect to the ODI Repositories to retrieve code/jobs to run.

Freezing that occurs when viewing Agent schedule, testing Agent, or launching jobs with the Agent is usually due to the Agent can not connect to the Repositories.

If startscen and a Standalone Agent, check the odiparams file to make sure the connection information is all accurate.
If JEE Agent check the Data Sources on WLS.
