Error when connection to Oracle 11 "Host cannot be reached " (Bussiness Objects Enterprise XI 4.0)


Hi Gurus

I am facing a problem when trying to create data foundation on Information Design Tool. I got an error as "Host cannot be reached".

I have a connection to Oracle 11 and the connection was successfully connected (when create connection on IDT).

SAP BOBI server is WindowsServer 2008R2 Standard .

I have Oracle Client installed on both server and my pc.

When I check the conection on Data Federation Administration Tools I got an error message as : DBDriver failed to load : C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\dataAccess\connectionServer\drivers\lib64\dbd_oci´╗┐

The strange thing is; I can only see a table on oracle database when insert derived table and it is only when I create data foundation on a local connection. But I always get an error "Host cannot be reached" when try to create data foundation on a connection published in repository. Plus the on derived table doesn't have any data in it even there is data on Oracle database

Has anyone experienced this issue and how you fixed it?

Your help is highly appreaciated
