OSB: Remote Server Connection Issue from OEPE

OSB: Remote Server Connection Issue from OEPE


I am having an issue while trying to connect to my remote OSB server from my eclipse IDE installed as per instructions on oracle blog as per my previous post.

I am running the prebuilt Oracle VBox Images for SOA

Downloaded from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/soasuite/learnmore/vmsoa-172279.html

Configured it for SOA_OSB_DEV Domain and started the servers which I am successfully able to launch from my local machine browsers

I have then installed OEPE from the oracle website [Oracle WebLogic Server 11gR1 (10.3.6) + Coherence – Package Installer]

And the installed the OSB using http://download.oracle.com/otn/nt/middleware/11g/111160/ofm_osb_generic_11.

Note: I only installed the OSB IDE as I do not want to configure the OSB Server on my machine but utilise the Remote server which is why I am using the Oracle provided Vbox images.

I have tried a few things I checked the firewall on the remote Linux box and it’s disabled and so is the selinux.

Also disabled all firewalls on my local machine

PS: I am able to connect to another WebLogic server [non OSB] on a different Vbox image, and I am able to connect to the WebLogic application server from Jdeveloper on both the Vbox images including this one.


The issue was with the config.xml file in the /user_projects/domains/<domainname>/config directory on the server.

For some reason it’s got when the VM says it’s for

So, in the file just had to make a change to at 2 places and restarted the server and eclipse.

“domain-version” and “configuration-version” from to

    what is the hostname that we need to mention for the remote vm box WL Server?

      Hi Sri,

      It would depend on what your remote host is.
      You might be able to use localhost for the oracle VM’s
      Or else you can add an entry to your windows host file and use that as the host name.
      Let me know how you get on.
