BOFC 7.5 - Unable to initialize by CTadmin (BOFC App Svr and DB Svr Ora11g


I am installing BOFC 75 on a windows server, and a Oracle DB server - separately,. but CT admin is not able to initialize the BOFC 75 (SP13) on Windows 2008, and Oracle DB that is also on Windows 2008 sever.

I went through installation/Master/administrator guides - create data source section to connect and configure Oracle. BUt I could not figure out the cause - connection, security, DCOM/ODBC setting etc.

An error occurred and stopped when we tried to Initialize database.

"All Tasks" -> "Migrate"

we got an error popup shows

" <hostname> failed to access the data source manager for an unknown reason."

also I am looking for any log files to see the detail of errors.

if anyone who have seen the similar problem, any information is very appreciated.

Hi Hideki

Please have a look at this threat: SAP BOFC 7.5: Incorrect identity and wrong DCOM configuration

Do you still have problems?
