    R12 on VIrtual Machine in windows laptop

    MAveri((k
      Dear All

      After 3-4 attempts I was finally able to install R12 on my laptop with a Windows7 OS.

      I did install R12 on a VM running OEL5.5.

      Now I want to accss this instance from my host OS that is win7.

      Can this be done and if yes how?

      Thanks

          You should be able to access the guest OS from the host OS as long as you can ping the IP Address or the hostname.domainname (add an entry to the hosts file if required).

          Thanks,

                You do not need to do any setup,

                Just access it the same you accesses R12 instance on windows machine.

                like

                http://<linux host name>.<linux domain name>:<port number>

                Thanks

                  Hi

                  For me this wont open the page.

                  On Guest my URL: http://apps.appserver:8000/ opens the login page

                  However on host URL : http://apps.appserver:8000/ gives page cannot be displayed error.

                  Thanks

                    Hi,
                    Mav

                    did you add the IP address of linux box in your windows 7 machines host file?

                    Navigate to

                    C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc

                    edit the hosts file as administrator and add the entry as follows

                    <IP Address of the linux machine> <LINUX FQDN> <LINUX MACHINE NAME>


                    Thanks

                          What if you use the IP Address in the application URL instead of hostname.domainname? Can you see the main login page then?

                          What is the output of "adopmnctl.sh status"?

                          Thanks,

                            Hi Hussein

                            I tried with the IP address directly instead of the URL and the output is the same.

                            This is the output

                            01/27/13-21:04:57 :: adopmnctl.sh version 120.6

                            01/27/13-21:04:59 :: adopmnctl.sh: exiting with status 0

                            The instance is up and running as per me as I am able to access it from my Guest OS

                              You should see the status of the application components when you issue this command.

                              Please run AutoConfig and make sure it completes successfully.
