I am using in-process reports server through OC4J_BI_FORMS in oracle 9iAS. I have noticed the reports servlet is not running when I try to access through http://<hostname>:<port_no>/reports/rwservlet/help

I get an error
500 Internal Server Error
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError      at oracle.ias.repository.IASSchema$Enc.d(      at oracle.ias.repository.IASSchema.init(      at oracle.ias.repository.IASSchema.<init>(      at oracle.ias.repository.SchemaManager.<init>(      at oracle.reports.utility.OIDConnection.init(      at oracle.reports.rwclient.RWClient.RWClientInit(      at oracle.reports.rwclient.RWClient.init(      at com.evermind[Oracle9iAS ( Containers for J2EE].server.http.HttpApplication.loadServlet(      at com.evermind[Oracle9iAS ( Containers for J2EE].server.http.HttpApplication.findServlet(      at com.evermind[Oracle9iAS ( Containers for J2EE].server.http.HttpApplication.getRequestDispatcher(      at com.evermind[Oracle9iAS ( Containers for J2EE].server.http.HttpRequestHandler.processRequest(      at com.evermind[Oracle9iAS ( Containers for J2EE]      at com.evermind[Oracle9iAS ( Containers for J2EE]      at EDU.oswego.cs.dl.util.concurrent.PooledExecutor$      at

Can you please help me in this so that I can get the rwservlet get up and running, please?

    First thing to do is reboot the server.

    Next goto http://<hostname>:1810 and login using the ias_admin account.

    Ensure that your HTTP server & Reports are started.

    Report back if necessary after having carried out those steps.

    My OS is Solaris 9. I have infra and mtier on seperate solaris machines.

    I have stopped all the 9iAS services on both the tiers, rebooted the Solaris server machines and then started 9iAS services(first infra and then mtier). Still tye problem persists. Reports servlet is still down and gives the same error.

    What could be the reason for this? Please help.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Check your infrastructure database is up and running, you can tell what state the infrastructure database is in by going to http://<hostname>:1810 and logging in using the ias_admin account. If the midtier is not visible then the infrastructure database is down.
