Can not find Locator.ior

When trying to connect to Discover it get the following message, Unable to connect to Oracle Discover Application Server, Wide area network connect failed. Unable to read Locator.ior file in location http://redev.latrade.com/DISCWB33/applet/locator.ior. Local area network failed. Failed to connect to locator BSDW_DOracleDiscoverLocator3.3 using OSAgent.

I am able to see the directory but the file does not exist. The documentation seems to imply that when you start the discover service that this file should be created.

Any Ideas?

    Yes, when the Oracle Discoverer 3i service starts, the locator.ior file should be created in the directory specified.

    First, go to the machine with your HTTP server and verify that the service has started by looking at your running processes in Task Manager. You should see:

    - dis33srv.exe
    - osagent.exe

    Next, go to your Master Discoverer Server and verify that you have registered your Preferences and Session. Do this by selecting these from the Oracle Discoverer Server 3i Setup program group. If you had registered them correctly before, then you the first few lines of the windows which appear will say "<foo> is already registered at...".

    If you did a single-machine installation, then both steps still apply.

    Also, make sure you rebooted after installation.

    Hope this helps,

    Our Http server is Solaris 2.6 and we are using start_locator to start the locator process. This however does not create the locator.ior.

    The thing that is odd is that we have some machines that it works on and others that it does not. The machines that work imply that these server processes are running or the machines that it works on have some config or software that makes the locator.ior obselete.

    Thanks
