Note:

  1. The installation is using the latest installer by using the empower login in the Installer. (Not by loading from any image)

(Verified the Database access from the VM suse using DB visualizer)

  1. WebMethods 713 IS is working fine in the same VM SUSE and separate Oracle DB for 713 which is also located on the host machine.

  2. There was no error or warning during the installation.

Thank you.

I see there are two issues

2011-09-06 16:27:24 MYT [ISS.0025.0050W] The JCE Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy File was not found. Please install it.

2011-09-06 16:27:36 MYT [ISS.0096.0005C] JDBCConnectionManager: initialization failed with exception null
2011-09-06 16:27:36 MYT [ISS.0096.0001C] JDBCConnectionManager: initialization failed for All functional alias, check configuration.

The 1st issue can be bypassed with no major issues. The 2nd however is of the more serous issue. Please check if you have installed the latest odjb jar files in the …webMethods…\IntegrationServer\lib\jars folder and that you are physically able to connect to the DB from the machine from where you have installed webMethods. The main DB Pool you also need to check in webMethods…\IntegrationServer\config\jdbc\pool folder.

Hope it helps.
