<FRM-92101: There was a failure in the Forms Server during startup. This could happen due to invalid configuration
Please look into the web-server log file for details

Java Exception

As I looked into the forms log file given below:

found the following error

The issue is with the openmotif package which install in Linux,

So UnInstall the openmotif package and reInstall it.

Install the below RPM & then stop and start the forms service:


You can download the above RPM in the below link:
