    Can't start managed server in Oracle Service Bus 10gR3

    lyallp-80952
      Using Windows 2003 Enterprise.
      Standard install of OSB 10gR3 - only changes from standard are that I also installed the samples, otherwise, it's default install the whole way.
      My windows machine name is the same as a name entry in the HOSTS file, as follows

      127.0.0.1 localhost
      xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx osb-strat
      yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy osb-other

      I eventually want to setup a domain across 2 machines with 2 servers, one on each, hence the two entries.

      For the life of me, I cannot start a managed server for OSB, I keep seeing

      I did manage it once, but then I had problems seeing the second machines Node Manager - I have figured that out, but during my screwing around, I lost how to get the primary machines service to boot - I have not even attempted to boot the server on the second, remote machine!

      I have tried creating the domain using the Config wizard and creating the server/machine using the config wizard.
      I have tried creating an empty domain using the Config wizard then using the Admin Console to create the machine and server.
      I have tried editing the boot.properties in C:\bea\user_projects\domains\TheDomain\servers\Strategic\data\nodemanager
      I have tried setting the listening address to the Hostname of the server, blank, to the IP address.
      I have tried configuring the service to not do host name validation.
      I do see, in the startup logs, that it notes that the hostname resolves to both the external IP and 127.0.0.1
      I have tried re-installing (multiple times) hoping to have a fresh start.
      I have even setup a Snapshot, post installation so I can re-start configuration from the very start.
      I am at my wits end.

      Surely, it can't be that hard to setup a vanilla server and boot it?

      Any suggestions, maybe even a step by step creation of a single server (other than the admin server for the domain), that boots, starting immediately after installation?

      Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
