Standalone Reports Server Name Larger Than 30 Characters Cannot Be Started Up

(Doc ID 1382731.1)

Last updated on JULY 11, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version 11.1 to [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The default Reports Server configured out of the box fails to come up when the installation finishes:

## oraInstall2011-11-23_05-22-11PM.out

Executing Task: Executing: opmnctl startproc ias-component=<RptSvr_name_larger_than_30_characters>
opmnctl startproc: starting opmn managed processes...
opmn id=<hostname>:6701
0 of 1 processes started.

--> Process (index=1,uid=733152822,pid=3784)
failed to start a managed process after the maximum retry limit

If a new reports server is created with a shorter name, it works fine. In some other 11g versions, the name is cutted to less than 30 characters.


Brand new installation. Testing the in-process and standalone created out of the box install.
