I developed RPD & all required reports in 184.108.40.206.2. But I am supposed to use only 220.127.116.11.0. Now I am in the process of downgrading RPD and web catalog.
I installed 18.104.22.168.0 in another machine and I did the downgrade of RPD easily with nqgenoldverrpd.exe utility delivered with OBIEE.
Now I am getting issues mainly with downgrading catalog. I copied the catalog folder from 22.214.171.124.2 to 126.96.36.199.0. Pointed the catalog. I restarted the servers & I am able to see the report listing there. When I clicked "Open" link, I am getting following error: Line:2, Col:238, Datatype error: Type:InvalidDatatypeValueException, Message:Value '201201160' is not in enumeration .
When I checked the complete XML Error output it points to XMLVersion datatype is not in enumeration. I have two questions.
1. I have a doubt whether the method I am following is right? If not can anyone elaborate what to do for catalog downgrading?
2. If the method is right - What do I need to do to rectify this issue?
Can any one help?

I am trying to downgrade the RPD from 188.8.131.52.2 to 184.108.40.206.0 then I used the following command below and it says that it cannot open the rpd :
C:\OBIEE11g\Oracle_BI1\bifoundation\server\bin>nqgenoldverrpd.exe -P welcomerpd1
-I C:\Users\kanna\Desktop\oldrpd -O C:\Users\kanna\Desktop\NewRPD.rpd -V 318
Can not open C:\Users\kanna\Desktop\oldrpd.rpd
Can you tell me if I am doing something wrong here.
Hi Kanna, I think you are trying to use nqgenoldverrpd.exe available in 220.127.116.11.0 and not from 18.104.22.168.2 version. Try using the nqgenoldverrpd.exe of 22.214.171.124.2.
Bottomline is, you can downgrade a higher version RPD with the same version EXE file as it knows how to read & interpret the file for downgrade.
