Per the below reference:

Oracle´┐Ż Application Server Reports Services Publishing Reports to the Web
10g Release 2 (10.1.2)



You must start or stop a Reports Server registered with Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g only through Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g/OPMN. OPMN automatically restarts Reports Server if it stops responding for some reason. On Windows, OPMN itself is run as a Windows service.

Beginning with Oracle Reports 10g Release 2 (10.1.2), running Reports Server as a Windows service is no longer supported (rwserver -install server_name). As a result, the related command line keywords INSTALL and UNINSTALL are also obsolete. If you start or stop a Reports Server that is managed by OPMN running as a Windows service or through the command line, you may face the following issues:

  • The Reports Server's status will not be reflected accurately in Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g.

  • Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g may display errors when starting or stopping the Reports Server.

For more information about the obsolescence of running Reports Server as a Windows service, see A Guide to Functional Changes Between Oracle Reports 6i and 10g on the Oracle Technology Network (OTN).



If the syntax 'rwserver -install server_name' is now obsolete for the Microsoft Windows 2000 and/or Microsoft Windows Server 2003 installations as of Oracle Application Server Enterprise Edition 10g Release 2 (, what is the proper procedure(s) for adding a new standalone Report Server?
