We seem to have an issue with our 188.8.131.52 windows install.
The first indication was that we could no longer log in presentation services.
After checking EM, I noticed that everything all looked fine in there so I decided to restart the server and see if that would help.
I then attempted to login to the online rpd using the admin tool and got the following error:
My next thought was that the rpd might be corrupt so I attempted to use datamodel.cmd to upload an rpd that I knew worked.
I then confirmed that the port was indeed open and that everything was running correctly which it was.
I have checked most logs... the most interesting being bi_server1-diagnostic.

The logs also seem to be littered with the below error but not sure if it's relevant given we're not running in a cluster.
We are however using Singleton Data Directory and Global Cache but everything seems to be ok with that. No permission issues etc.
The only thing I can think of that may have caused this is the following:
This morning, I attempted to use "export_service_instance" as I wanted to migrate the catalog to another machine.
It failed due to not knowing what the BI_PRODUCT_HOME was.
I then compared the environment variables on the bad machine vs another machine that I knew worked and noticed that the good machine didn't reference ORACLE_HOME, DOMAIN_HOME, BITOOLS_HOME etc etc
Sooooo... Perhaps stupidly, I took notes of what the env var values were, deleted them and restarted the app.
I then re-tried the export process again and it was around this time where something happened I believe.
Now for the really stupid part.... My first reaction was to restart the server to see if that would fix it... Unfortunately, I didn't save the note specifying the env vars.... *sigh*.
Anyway... that's my full disclosure. Some pretty dumb maneuvers on my part so try not to kick me too hard while i'm down.
I just want this bloody thing fixed.
Appreciate any help that you guys can give me.
PS Would just like to re-iterate that I have restarted about 20 times now and every time, it comes up perfectly with no issues. In EM, everything is green. Just cannot access the rpd and therefore, OBIPS.
