Changing stand-alone report server name

user10406174 Newbie

We are upgrading to forms and reports 11g (11.1.2)

Is there a way to change or add an alias to the stand-alone report server?

Right now it is RepSvr_<SERVER_NAME>_<INSTANCE_NAME> and would like it to be something like reportserver.

Thanks,
Tom

    Hi Tom,
    there is no magic trick to rename standalone reports server in 11g. You need to delete it and then create a new one with the name you want.

    Example
    opmnctl deletecomponent-adminUsername <username> -adminHost <hostname> -adminPort <AdminServer port> -oracleHome <oracle_home_path> -oracleInstance <oracle_instance_path> -instanceName <instance_name> -componentName <Reports Server name> -componentType ReportsServerComponent

    opmnctl createcomponent -adminUsername <username> -adminHost <hostname> -adminPort <AdminServer port> -oracleHome <oracle_home_path> -oracleInstance <oracle_instance_path> -instanceName <instance_name> -componentName <Reports Server name> -componentType ReportsServerComponent

    Regards, RZ

    You can find out the list of report servers running in the network using the following command.
    rwdiag.bat –findall

    I have a similar issue. I have a report server that will not start, saying a report server with the same name already exists in the network, we only have the one application server, i deleted the report server with the deletecomponent command, I then ran rwdiag.sh -FindAll and the report server is still listed.

    Does the Application Server have to be restarted every time a change like this occurs?

    I'm running 11.1.1.4.

    Hi Paul,
    it is very likely that the reports server process is still running and that is the cause why you are getting that error. I am not sure your platform but you can run on unix "ps -ef | grep rwserver" and see if the old standalone reports server is there. Kill -9 it.

    Hope this helps
