BugID
Description and Workaround or Solution
  1. 16475008
Problem: While browsing TSAM Console pages, you may get an error message “An unknown error occurred during data streaming. Ask your System Administrator to inspect the server-side logs”, and find an exception "java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: sun/awt/X11GraphicsEnvironment" or "java.lang.InternalError: Can't connect to X11 window server using 'hostname:1.0' as the value of the $DISPLAY variable." in the server-side log.
Platform: Unix/Linux
Workaround: This problem may be caused by an invalid $DISPLAY environment variable value setting. Do one of the following:
  • Append -Djava.awt.headless=true to JAVA_OPTS for Tomcat or JAVA_OPTIONS for Weblogic, or
  • Run xclock to see if $DISPLAY is running. If xclock runs successfully, the $DISPLAY environment variable value setting is correct; otherwise, set a valid $DISPLAY environment variable value.
  1. 16470085
Problem: Starting up the target of Tuxedo system or user server which requires additional environment variables from Enterprise Manager target homepage fails.
Platform: Generic
Workaround: Define the additional environment variables in the ENVFILE file of the server in UBBCONFIG file.
  1. 14485664
Problem: You cannot monitor any ART JES metrics if the time zone of machines on which OMS and Oracle Database are running is different.
Platform: Generic
