Running the Diagnostics Script

This section describes how to use the diagnostics script to determine the health of your Oracle WebCenter Interaction installation before running the portal for the first time.

before running the diagnostics script, you must completely configure Oracle WebCenter Interaction using the Configuration Manager. You must also create and configure the portal database.

Run the diagnostics script before starting your portal for the first time. It tests basic portal startup functionality. If there are issues with your Oracle WebCenter Interaction installation, the diagnostics script generates a list of warnings and recommendations about how to correct the issues. Run the script, follow the recommendations, and correct any issues before starting your portal for the first time.


If the diagnostics script fails, run install_dir/ptportal/10.3.3/bin/ and review any issues it discovers.

Starting the Portal

This section describes how to start the Oracle WebCenter Interaction portal for the first time.

To start the portal:

  1. Start the portal by browsing to the application at the external portal URL you provided the Oracle WebCenter Interaction installer.

    For example,

  2. Log in to the portal as Administrator with no password.


You should change the default Administrator password as soon as possible. Ensure that you document the change and inform the appropriate portal administrators.

Importing Migration Packages

This section provides an overview of how to import the Oracle WebCenter Interaction component migration packages. Depending on which components you installed, some packages might not be applicable to your portal installation.

Use the Migration - Import Utility (click Administration, then Select Utility, then Migration - Import) to import the migration packages.

If necessary, adjust any import settings. For details on using the Migration - Import utility, see the online help or Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter Interaction.
