Last updated on OCTOBER 25, 2011

Applies to:

Oracle Business Process Analysis Suite - Version: and later   [Release: 11gR1 and later ]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


You have changed the default port where BPA agent is running (default port is 16073), now if you want to use the Admintool, you get the following error:

Oracle Business Process Repository Administrator, Copyright ? 2009 Oracle Corporatione AG

No connection<aris>> server localhost

Enter site administrator password of server localhost: **********
Error while connecting to the server. Please check the computer name and make sure that Oracle BPA Suite Site Manager is running.

If you revert the port to the default value (16073) :

<agent port="16073" localport="16078" threadpoolsize="20" options="" >

You are able to connect without problems
