Oracle Reports Developer - Version 9.0.4.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This problem can occur on any platform.

Symptoms

Reports Server fails to start up, and hence fails to serve reports.

This was working fine, but suddenly started to fail.

There is no error returned to the user, and the Reports process in ASConsole fails to show any of
the normal links (cannot see Current reports, Failed reports, etc).

After enabling Reports Server tracing (10g), the rwserver.trc showed:

2009/5/28 6:42:19:298] Exception 50001 (): Server is initializing

Here is an 11g rwserver_diagnostic.log trace file sample:

Engine traces seem to start okay. No errors shown in any of the engine traces.
