Error during installation while configuring 11g reports.

Error during installation while configuring 11g reports.



Oracle Reports Developer - Version 11.1 to 11.1 [Release 11g]

While installing Oracle Reports 11g, the installation fails while configuring the reports server components with the following error:

Executing: opmnctl startproc ias-component=ReportsServer_Hostname_InstanceName


This issue is encountered because there exists another installation of 11g Reports with the same instance name. By default, standalone reports server will take the following syntax


If you try to install 11g reports as another installation with the same instance, it will still follow the same syntax on creating the reports server and eventually fail. The reason is you cannot obviously have two reports server with the same name.


Continue to install the 11g reports even if it fails with the fore mentioned error. Once the installation is complete, rename the standalone reports server name. 

1. De-register the existing standalone reports server from the new installation using the following command

opmnctl deletecomponent -adminUsername <admin username> -adminHost <hostname.domainname> -adminPort <port of AdminServer> -oracleHome <dir for ORACLE_HOME> -oracleInstance <Directory for ORACLE_INSTANCE> -instanceName <name of instance> -componentName <name of Reports server> -componentType ReportsServerComponent

For more details please see :

2. Follow the instructions mentioned in the Note:961174.1 to create and start up a standalone reports server in 11g.
