Hi, I've done quite a bit of investigation so far but still cannot get the Designer client to reach and authenticate against the CMS.
This is a 4.2.5 install with an IPS platform. Single server installation with Oracle repositories.
The error occurs when I try to log on (the list of available repositories are not shown).
The error message is a typical one people receive which is usually firewall related - invalid username/password, SDK failure.
I have done the following so far:-
I can connect to the DS mgmt console and CMC without problems.
I have added a system DSN and tnsnames.ora entry for the CMS and BODS repositories. I can connect to those using SQL Developer
I have added an entry into my local hosts file for the server
I have created firewall rules to open up all inbound and outbound ports on the server and client
I can ping the server and telnet to port 6400 OK
I set enable=yes in the DSUserConfig file but it doesn't generate a log file so I haven't got any detail from the error.
No entries in the server logs relating to a failed logon.
The client and server are on different subnets, but surely that's not mandatory?
I've read the forums and cannot think of anything else to try. Any suggestions?
