We are now seeing the same thing, after just having upgraded the database from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206, when we try to connect to the repository (OMBCONNECT statement), error message is:
[19/Apr/2012:10:56:50] OMB01118: Could not connect to repository! ORA-29532: Java call terminated by uncaught Java exception: java.lang.NumberFormatException: For input string: "nul"
ORA-06512: at "OWBSYS.GETROLESTARTED", line 31
ORA-06512: at line 1
Will head for Oracle Support/SR but if anyone has ideas in the meantime, please share... Will update w/ results of SR as well...
We got the exact same error when trying to log into the OWB builder. In our case we had several OWB instances and we had upgraded one of our OWB instances from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168. One of the steps in the upgrade process required us to run rt_mgr.sh, which regenerates rtrepos.properties. Unfortunately, the newly-regenerated rtrepos.properties was in the 22.214.171.124 home and this was causing the OWB builder to throw those error messages when it tried to start up.
We restored the original rtrepos.properties and things started working again.
Although the rt_mgr.sh script makes a backup of that file before changing it, I recommend you make your own backup of that file before doing an upgrade, just in case.
Hello,this may because the rtrepos.properties under $OWB_HOME/bin/admin is incorrect. I have the same issue after upgading.
Here is what I did:
(1) mv rtrepos.properties to rtrepos.properties.bak
(2) cd $OWB_HOME/UnifiedRepos then sqlplus owbsys/owbsys_pawd @reset_owbcc_home enter the new owb home
(3) cd $OWB_HOME/rtp/sql sqlplus OWBSYS/OWBSYS @reset_repository enter owbsys passwd
Then go to $OWB_HOME/bin/unix/owbclient.sh enter a workspace, this will generate a new rtrepos.properties file. Then register user should work.
Your post helped me to solve some of my problems.
So, I've attempted to duplicate my production instance to a Development instance
- After the duplicate action, the @start_service.sql failed and then my misery began J
Here is all the actions I've done to solve this problem. please feel free to give me a feedback if I'm wrong anywhere.
1: SQL> select * from owbsys.wb_rt_service_nodes;
I modified the instance name and the path, because is not the same.
2: SQL> select * from owbsys.owbrtps;
Here I do the same for the path.
3: mv rtrepos.properties to rtrepos.properties.bak
4: cd $OWB_HOME/UnifiedRepos then sqlplus owbsys/owbsys_pawd @reset_owbcc_home enter the new owb home
5: cd $OWB_HOME/rtp/sql sqlplus OWBSYS/OWBSYS @reset_repository enter owbsys passwd
7:export all the dml with owb design center from the prod than import it to the development instance.
8: modify the path parameter for the user and the folder.
Here all I’ve done.
