FRM-41213 When Running a Report From Forms with OAS Installed on a Unix Machine (Doc ID 781492.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 19, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Forms - Version 10.1.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


There are two Forms/Reports Application installs, one on a windows machine and one on a UNIX machine.  When calling the Reports Server on the UNIX machine with run_report_object() from the Forms installation on the Windows machines all works fine.  However, when calling the Reports Server on the UNIX machine using run_report_object() from the Forms installation on the same UNIX machine, the following error occurs:

FRM-41213: Unable to connect to the Report Server <reports server name>

This indicates a configuration issue with the Forms installation on the UNIX machine.

Showenv (http://<server>:<port>/reports/rwservlet/showenv?server=<reports server name>) shows that the Report Server is running on the correct Unix server machine. With the rwdiag command (from <ORACLE_HOME>/bin rwdiag -findall) the correct Report Server is shown also in the subnet.

Running the diagnostic test form from <Note: 291955.1>: Diagnosis Test Form For Easy Debugging of FRM-41213 Error the following information and errors in trcrro.trc :


<ORACLE_HOME>/forms_java/zrclient.jar : exists
<ORACLE_HOME>/forms_java/rwrun.jar : exists
ERROR ! >>>>> Exception when calling DiagServerLocator.main
ERROR ! >>>>> Check the file : .../reports/logs/rwnetwork.log

Note: This indicates zrclient.jar and rwrun.jar were moved to a user created subdirectory in the <ORACLE_HOME>
