The Oracle Fusion Middleware (FMW) 11g Portal, Forms, Reports Discoverer (PFRD) binary home has been successfully installed and patched to Weblogic Server 10.3.6 and a certified 64 bit JDK were installed before FMW was installed.

When an attempt is made to configure a domain including Reports by executing  $ORACLE_HOME/bin/config.sh the config assistant fails with the following error message written to the console~<instance_name>~1.log:

The config assistant failed starting
./opmnctl startproc process-type=ReportsServerComponent
opmnctl startproc: starting opmn managed processes...
opmn  id=host.domain:6701
0 of 1 processes started.

ias-instance  id=asinst

-->  Process (index=1,uid=2047568639,pid=30513)
failed to start a managed process after the maximum retry limit

There are no other log messages to indicate why Reports Server fails to start.

- If multicast for Reports server is disabled for diagnostic purposes following:

the console log now reveals:
