I have OBIEE 11g and I have created a new RPD and also wanted a new catalog folder for it.
So I tried uploading new RPD and Catalog folder name through EM, everything is fine till activate changes and then when I am starting services presentation service is failing.I have also tried making it through instanceconfig.xml but its again failing.
I have tried uploading new RPD with a existing catalog folder...its working fine.
Any inputs/tips would really help me
While deploying rpd and catalog please specify the catalog name as it is rpd name.
Follow the below steps.
1. upload the rpd.
2.In the catalog path go to the end and specify the Catalog name then restart the services. It will create catalog automatically under respective path.
Hope this help's
