    not able to access Oracle R12 VIS in guest OS

    730040
      hi,

      i have Oracle R12.1.1 installed on OEL (Virtual machine; guest OS) which is on a Windows 7 (host) machine.

      i am not able to access the login page. i am getting following error in guest machine,
      500 - Internal Server error.

      my Oracle R12 apps URL is-
      http://localhost.localdomain:8000/OA_HTML/AppsLogin

      i did a "grep -i login $CONTEXT_FILE". i got the following output,
      [oracle@unknown000c29571a48 etc]$ grep -i login $CONTEXT_FILE
      <login_page
      oa_var="s_login_page">http://localhost.localdomain:8000/OA_HTML/AppsLogin</login_page>


      please help.

      regards,

          Using loopback hostname and IP Address is not a ideal for EBS installation and you should set up a different hostname and domain name for your guest OS -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loopback

          Please see these docs for details.

            thank you Hussain.

            but it was working fine. actually i am starting the VM after around 8-10months. before that it was working with the same config.
            the only change that i can think of between now and then is i changed my network router from NETGEAR to ATT wireless.

            not sure if that causes any issues here?

            as now this is already installed. can i change the hostname.domainname now?
            if yes, please guide me or point me to a document describing the same.

              you are correct. the firewall is causing the issue.
              although i had opened the HTTP port in guest OS but somehow that is not working.

              so i completely disabled the firewall and that seems to be working.

              for now i am good. i could able to connect the VIS from host machine.

              will investigate why individual port opening not working.

              thanks a lot.
