Upgrading OBIEE

Points to watch out for

1.  Follow the instructions

2. Do not forget to upgrade the Catalog; this has caused me more stress than anything else, even for point fixes like .3 to .8

This means editing sawserver instanceconfig in a ridiculously long directory like


and changing UpgradeAndExit to TRUE, bouncing SAWSERVER/Presentation services, and then changing the flag back to FALSE, then starting it again.

....   Check all errors in the log file.

If you do not do this the symptom is a lot of Dashboards and Analyses do not appear in the system and it can be very difficult to figure out what is going on.
