    Trying to start up the manager process in a fresh installation

    Omega3
      Version 11.2.1.0.3
      Platform : RHEL 5.4

      To configure manager process in a machine (which is going to be a target server ), I downloaded GG installer from edelivery.
      Unzipped the installable in the desired location. Then I created a basic parameter file for the manager and tried to start up the manager process. But the manager process is not coming up.

      This is what I've done till now after the installation of GG (By installation , I mean Unzipping and Untarring)

      1. set the env variables for the database

      2. Created the parameter file for manager as shown below.
      $ ./ggsci

      Manager started.
      
      
      GGSCI (stryker179) 3> info mgr
      
      Manager is DOWN!
      I haven't created any gguser at DB level. But that is not a pre-requisite for manager process. Right ?


      -- Regarding the logging of GG's errors

      Wish I could check some logs to see what is causing this issue ?

      Where are the logs (.rpt files) stored ? I believe we have to manually create a directory called dirrpt.
      For , the fresh installation, the dirrpt directory was not created. Only the following directories were found after the installation (Untar)
      $ ls -alrdFt * | grep /
