I'm a newbie to ODI, and have downloaded the software and the demo environment (plus instructions). Setup seems to go fine, but when I get to the point where I should connect to the demo environment, I follow the instructions but am unable to type in WORKREP as the Working Repository - the field is greyed out, and I cannot proceed further.
I have started the demo environment using startdemo.bat, and everything else seems OK (or at least doesn't error) aside from this.
Am I correct in saying that the RCU does not need to be run, just to use the Demo Environment?
Please can anyone help? I would like to evaluate the product but have run up against this wall.
Unfortunately what you suggest doesn't work at my end - when I select the Work Repository radio button and click on the magnifying glass, I get ODI-26130 - Could not connect to the repository - invalid repository connection. I changed all credentials to mirror yours too.
Sadly, it hasn't worked for me - I have even changed my Java version to match yours, and I still get the error above. There are indeed three command prompts informing me that the servers are running, but that Work Repository option is disabled for me, and clicking on the magnifying glass still causes the same error. I've tried it on a different machine and get the same error too - so I must be doing something silly - damned if I can work out what it is though!
Thank you for your help though - if you can think of anything else please let me know, as I'm well and truly stuck at the gate here!
