Hi all I'm facing with a database issue on a OBIEE setup in a virtual box machine, hosted on a windows 7, with Linux Enterprise 5.8.
In this VM I've installed the follow oracle products: Oracle Database, RCU, OBIEE 11g - 188.8.131.52
The network configuration for the VM is set to NAT and I forwarded the ports 7001 and 9704 to the VM in order to access to the web console.
Also I modified the etc/hosts file in this way
127.0.0.1 localhost obiee-server
so if I ping obiee-server everithing is working fine.
Furthermore I changed the database setting for the tnsname and listener file in order to point on the obiee-server hostname
When I set up the OBIEE instance during the MDS and BIPLATFORM schema configuration I specify as database hostname obiee-server and the setup proceed without any error in fact at the end I was able to access to the web console.
The problem is that if I disconnect the windows machine phisical adapter from the network (wireless or lan doesn't make any difference) the opmnctl starts fine but during the stratup of the admin and managed servers I get an IO Error Socket read timed out exception.
As soon as I reconenct the interface to the physical network I'm able to start the servers withoput any problem Of course I tested the database listener using tnsping orcl and everithing is working fine. Please may you help me to solve this issue.
