Trying to Start a Reports Server Registered in OPMN Hangs on AIX (Doc ID 356686.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 09, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version 10.1.2.0.2 to 10.1.2.3 [Release Oracle10g to 10gr2]
IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)
IBM AIX Based Systems (64-bit)



Symptoms

Unable to start up in-process Reports Server or any Reports Server registered in OPMN using opmnctl command.
It hangs when trying to start it up using the opmnctl command.  For example:

   opmnctl startproc ias-component=rep_dev

Running "opmnctl status" shows the Reports Server component (e.g., rep_dev) status as 'NONE', rather than "Alive" or
"Down".

However, starting up a standalone reports server from command line using rwserver.sh works.
For example:

   rwserver.sh server=rep_dev batch=yes &

Reports server trace (rwserver.trc) shows following error messages:

The /etc/hosts file does have an entry for localhost.
Also, in the file /etc/netsvc.conf, have "hosts=local,bind" set to ensure that the machine gets /etc/hosts data first.
