When I visited the Oracle enterprise manager this morning to start up the OC4J_BI_Forms System component, found that the HTTPS_Server status was displayed as unknown. When I tried to Re-start the HTTP Server got an error message "oracle.sysman.emSDK.util.jdk.EMException". Checked EMD.log and found the following error description:
ERROR metricCache.item updateMatricResult.151 - oracle.sysman.emSDK.common.emdComm.MetricGetException: oracle.ias.sysmgmt.exception.ClusterManagementException::Cluster Manager init failure
Root Cause : Unknown Oracle_Home, "E:\ora9ias".
Yesterday we were testing database connectivity from a VB application using MDAC 2.7 which was failing. As a result of this we installed Oracle 9i Client from the Oracle 9i Database CD and chose Administrator option while installing the client. There is a separate oracle_home for the 9iAS DB, "ora92home" which we used while installing the client. Could the client installation have impacted the IAS server?
Appreciate if you could please respond to this issue on priority.
