    Navigate to <OBIEE_MW_HOME>/Oracle_BI1/bin/ua.bat . This batch file is the Upgrade

    1) Placed the 10g BI pulisher Repository(all files) in custom folder C:\BIPublisher.I unzipped the code which I got from 10g BI publisher

    2)Ran ua.bat file C:\OBI11g_Middleware\Oracle_BI1\bin and choosed "Upgrade Oracle BI Publisher Repository"->RPD Directory: C:\BI Publisher ->RPD Directory:C:\OBI11g_Middleware\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\config\bipublisher\repository -> Port:7001,Username:weblogic,pwd:*** ->At Examine Step it showed Succeeded -> At upgrade step it failed with above error.

      I was able to successfully upgrade BI publisher 10g to 11g.But did you face any upgrade issues.


       1) When you apply filter for BI report,after upgradation I don't see report heading appearing.But by default it has it's heading.Only when I apply filter header will be missed and I see blank space followed by report content.I see this issue only in IE and not in Mozilla.

       2) It's not allowing to update existing report.In Report level -> Action-> Edit Report -> Edit.Then it asks me to open/save .doc file(Because my report layout choosed was .doc in 10g).But I dont find a way to edit the existing reports.


       Any ideas?
