OBIEE 12 RCU Avoid Hardstop Pre Reqs for AL32UTF8 Database Char Set

OBIEE 12 RCU Avoid Pre Reqs for AL32UTF8





I think there is a bug or a Hardstop in the 12c RCU Process when trying to install an RCU on a non UTF8 char set database.

Anyway there is a way around it ....

Open the file : [ORACLE_HOME]/oracle_common\rcu\config\RCUCommon.dtd

and amend the following properties from FALSE to TRUE:

<!ATTLIST DBPrerequisiteSet
          OPERATOR (OR|AND) "OR" 
          SOFT (TRUE|FALSE) "TRUE">

PREREQ_TYPE (InitParameter|DBOption|Java|DBComponent|DBVersion|DBObject|CustomSQL|TablespaceFreeMB) "CustomSQL"
        DATA_TYPE (STRING|NUMBER|VERSION) "STRING"
        COMPARE_OPERATOR (EQ|GT|LT|NE|GE|LE|COMPARE_VERSION) "EQ"
        SOFT (TRUE|FALSE) "TRUE">


While i was there me and Krish added a bit of personalisation to the RCU tool... We suppose it would be good for a corporate roll-out if done manually.

Open the File : [ORACLE_HOME]/oracle_common\rcu\config\rcu.properties

#This parameter can be used to change the Welecome Text at "WelcomePage' of RCU
PRODUCT_NAME=THE DELIVER BI WAY !!!!

The RCU Process issues various HARD Stops these can be overcome by amending the files above.

SOFT Stop = Ignore ( Ignore Properly) .. The out of box RCU does not ignore the soft stops hence the change above helped..
