Your post helped me to solve some of my problems.
So, I've attempted to duplicate my production instance to a Development instance
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.
