Rwclient Command Line Run Generates Error REP-0178: "Reports Server Cannot Establish Connection" But Rwservlet Runs OK

(Doc ID 1474595.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 09, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version and later
Generic UNIX


Users unable to run any report with command line from Fusion Middleware Reports 11g installation. Runs fail with the below error:


REP-0178: Reports Server <Reports_server_name> cannot establish connection

The report server is up and running and able to run the same report using the rwservlet module.



To allow for non-Oracle users to run rwbuilder and command line modules, the 'sudo' utility workaround was employed.
