35 Oracle Reports

This chapter describes issues associated with Oracle Reports. It includes the following topics:

35.1 General Issues and Workarounds

This section describes the general issues and their workarounds.

35.1.1 Associating SSL Port of OID Using Enterprise Manager

While installing Oracle Reports 11g Release 1 (11.1.1), you can specify whether an OID port is SSL-enabled. However, in the Reports-OID Reassociation page in Enterprise Manager, you cannot view, associate, deassociate, or reassociate OID that was configured during the installation to use the SSL port.

35.1.2 Configuration Changes Made Using Enterprise Manager to a Mail Server That Is Not Secure

After you make any changes from Enterprise Manager Reports server basic and advanced configuration pages, the mail server configuration element entry is impacted. The commented child elements of mail server configuration elements are removed from the rwbuilder.conf and rwserver.conf configuration files. As a result, running a job to a mail destination fails. This problem occurs only when you use a mail server that is not secure. In addition, note that the problem occurs only when the Reports Server is running on Windows platforms. For example, the following error message may appear on the browser when the job is submitted through rwservlet:


To work around this problem, add an entry for the child element of the mail server in the rwbuilder.conf and rwserver.conf configuration files manually and comment out the entry, as shown in the following example:

<pluginParam name="mailServer" value="">
    <!--property name="enableSSL" value="yes"/-->

35.2 Interoperability Issues and Workarounds

35.2.1 Interoperability between Reports 11g Server and Reports Client

If you want to use rwservlet of Reports 10g Release 2 ( with the Reports 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) Server, ensure that you install this patch on installation. You can download this patch from
