What To Do When You Cannot Login to Oracle Directory Server Manager (ODSM)
By Mark Wilcox - OVD Product Manager on Aug 23, 2010
By default during an ODSM install Weblogic will configure the managed node that is running ODSM so it's only able to accept incoming connections from browsers running on the same machine as Weblogic. Assuming that's not the behavior you want (usually expressed by "Why can't I get to ODSM from my laptop or desktop") here is how to fix it: Go to weblogic console( http://emservenamer:7001/console). Go to wls_ods1 (make sure it's running). Make sure the field listen address is empty (you'll need to click lock & edit, then edit, then save). Restart the wls_ods1 if weblogic console doesn't do this for you.
