Concurrent Manager Service Dies on XP

I’ve recently installed a new instance of eBS 11.5.10 on my laptop, and everything seemed to be working fine.  It took me AGES to get the thing installed and running, so I was really pleased that it was up and running quickly – I can now do a lot more when I’m mobile than I could before, since up until now I only had a laptop with enough power to run the database and Workflow server standalone.

BUT – as I got into the system, I eventually realised that none of my concurrent requests were completing, so I started to look into the log files a bit more.  Eventually, I found that the log file for the concurrent manager was reporting
_ 1 _
Concurrent Manager cannot find error description for CONC-System Node
Name not Registered

Contact your support representative.

Now that wasn’t too much help to me – particularly since I am my own support representative – so I started to look into the problem in more detail.  I ran a script called cmclean.sql which I had to download from Metalink , but that didn’t do the trick.

Eventually, I found this thread on OTN which gave me the answer – change the value of the system profile "Concurrent: GSM Enabled" from "Y" to "N".

Dead easy – and hopefully that may help you if you hit the same problem.

  1. Hi Matt,

    Is there a lite version of EBS to load on a laptop or you use the same enterprise version and what database you used? How much it costs to get the DB and eBS 11i software?

    I would like use one for my own personal training so that I can learn apps dba skills.


  2. Hi,

    AFAIK, there is no such thing as a “lite version”. You can buy Oracle products directly from Oracle – here.

    There is a trial licence, I think, but Oracle store is down at the moment.

    Of course, since your IP address resolves to Oracle, you might be best asking someone there 😀
