Comments on: OWB 10g R2Changing the repositories password disables the Control Center Friends of Oracle and Java Thu, 23 Apr 2015 12:54:46 +0000 hourly 1 By: Alison Clowes Mon, 18 Feb 2008 17:52:48 +0000 Hi

How did you update SERVER_SIDE_HOME everytime I try changing this column it gets reset

Can you help please



By: b liston Fri, 13 Apr 2007 18:20:10 +0000 I wanted to relay my solution for other readers. Had the same problem on 10gR2. Downloaded owbcollect.sql from Oracle. Indicated that client needed utl_file_dir=* in init.ora file. Also indicated that OWBHOME was not identified in column SERVER_SIDE_HOME in table WB_RT_SERVICE_NODES. Once I added the utl_file_dir entry in the init.ora file and updated wb_rt_service_nodes with the correct owbhome, service_doctor ran successfully and the control center starts automatically. Need to be careful, even thought Oracle indicates setting utl_file_dir=*, this can be a security risk/hazard. Could potentially allow users to overwrite sys or datafiles.
