Goal

By default in Oracle Applications R12, users are not able to access Forms directly via the following url:

http://hostname.domain:port/forms/frmservlet

The following error would pop out:

APP-FND-01542: This Applications Server is not authorized to access this database.



The goal of this document is to allow users access to the Oracle Applications R12 directly via Forms especially in cases where access to the following url is not available:

http://hostname.domain:port/OA_HTML/AppsLogin

NOTE: Accessing Forms directly is not supported and should only be used for diagnostic and troubleshooting purposes.
