After having upgraded TFA in version 18.2.1, I really wanted to configure and start using its new REST support feature (since 18.2.0) : “Oracle Trace File Analyzer now includes REST support, allowing invocation & query over HTTPS. […] REST supports printing details, starting a diagcollect and downloading collections”
First, I simply tried to start TFA REST services :
# sudo /grid/infrastructure/home/bin/tfactl rest -start Configuring TFA REST Services using ORDS : This might take couple of minutes. Please be patient. Adding Dependency Jars to ORDS Adding users to ORDS : Enter a password for user tfaadmin: Confirm password for user tfaadmin: Enter a password for user tfarest: Confirm password for user tfarest: Starting TFA REST Services Failed to start TFA REST Services URL : https://node01:9090/ords/tfactl/print/status NOTE : The Standalone Oracle Rest Data Services (ORDS) setup feature utilizes file based user authentication and is provided solely for use in test and development environments.
But I got an error :
Failed to start TFA REST Services. What is the problem ?
