    Regards,

    Nikesh,

    You will need to copy the RDF file over to your OTM directory (/otm/glog/reports) for your OTM reports installation. Once placed there you will need to login as DBA.ADMIN and add the report and parameters for it to appear in the UI. This is located under Business Process Automation --> Power Data --> Document Generation --> Reports. Click the new button to add the new report and then the ? at the top to help assist you on how to fill each field in.

      Hi Nick,

      Thanks for instant help.AlsoI wanted to know one more thing.I have installed OTM ,but did not make it as a report server.Its only a Web,App servers.So can u please let me know the process on how to add the system to make it as a report server.Should I have to need to install again from first or update the installation.
      Also any docs for the '.rdf' changes to be made will be great.

      Thanking and regards,
      Nikesh.

        Hi Nikesh,

        If everything will be installed on one server, you have three options available....

        1) Reinstall OTM with all of the components app, web and reports
        2) Install the reports section in a different directory
        3) Install the reports section in a different directory, then merge it into the directory that has the web and app install.

        For option 2 when you have a CU patch, you'll need to apply it twice as the installer will not allow you to specify two directories.

        If you choose option 3, you'll need to modify a few files including the httpd.conf file to reflect the directory where the files will reside from the directory you installed it in. Running grep for the old directory should help.
