Oracle Fusion Middleware (FMW) 11g Portal, Forms, Reports, Discoverer (PFRD) has been successfully installed and patched to the latest available Patch.

When an attempt is made to configure a domain and instance (called asinst_1), the configuration fails when attempting to start EM agent.

The following errors are written to the install[date/time].log:

[2011-10-07T09:14:27.152+01:00] [as] [NOTIFICATION] [] [] [tid: 15] [ecid: 0000JBTQvIrFc5kLSy0Fyc1EZf6W000006,0] Created component emagent_asinst_1

The following errors are written to the install[date/time].out:

Instance asinst_1 already exists, continuing with component creation
C:\Oracle\Middleware\as_1 C:\Oracle\Middleware\asinst_1 asinst_1 Failed to start the component

Note that these error messages are misleading. To see the real error it is necessary to check the EM Agent logs from <%Instance Home%>\EMAGENT\emagent\sysman\log.

emdctl.trc shows:

If you modified the timezone setting in the environment, please stop the agent and exectute 'emctl resetTZ agent' and also execute the script mgmt_target.set_agent_tzrgn(<agent_name>, <new_tz_rgn>) to get the value propagated to repository -----
