Cannot reach repository database.

Hello,

Currently we are using BO 4.1 but for auditing purpose, we still have the older version i.e. 5.1.8. Today DB team has restarted the DB server and I am able to connect to BO on my machine and run the reports and also to the designer and supervisor.

But the web version is not working, as soon I login the message displays as "

Cannot reach repository database". I restarted the IIS server but same message.

Appreciate your help.

    We are able to connect after updating the TNSNAMES.ORA file with full qualified names of the databases.

    REPO.XX.XXXX.XX.XX =

    (DESCRIPTION =

    (ADDRESS_LIST =

    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = servername.XX.XXXX.XX.XX)(PORT = 1521))

    )

    (CONNECT_DATA =

    (SERVICE_NAME = repo)

    )

    )

    what does BO 5.1.8 has to do with Bi4.1 and accessing which BO do you have this problem ?
    Those are 2 very different, separate products that cannot work together.

    Please clarify
