The blog for Oracle Data Integrator ( ODI )


  1. We have existing ODI Now our requirement is to move the ODI to ODI Want to know if Migration will work. or should Upgrade be followed.

  2. we have our ODI repositories(10g) on X oracle DB and using which the ODI nighty ETL loads the data to Y oracle DB. Now are looking to upgrade the ODI from 10g to 11g first and then from 11g to 12c by moving the repositories from “X” to “Z” so the installation and upgrade assistant should be installed on “Z”(new) server where new oracle database also resides with minimum version of ( and After the upgrade we connect to work and master reps using the clients(designer and operator)?

  3. Hi ,

    I have a question, We are planning to migrate the existing oracle data base to Will it impact the existing the repositories, Can we access the repositories/ODI with no compatibility issues after upgrade?

    please advise.

    • HI Prasun

      My bad… but still I can’t help once I don’t know this specific issue at SQL Developer.

      Sorry not be helpful!

    —An Error was encounter performing the request operation.
    Closed Connection

    I have checked in the log file also. Some SNP tables created correctly but also getting the below errors as example.
    Error starting at line 9 in command:
    Error report:
    SQL Error: Closed Connection

    Please suggest how I can clone using SQL developer.

    • Hi Prasun,

      seems the error is specific for MSSQL Server… Unfortunately I don’t know MSSQL Server so well to help…

      Could you try some forum related to MSSQL Server?

      Thank you for visiting us!

  6. I am new to this… and we are planing to upgrade our environment (ODI 10g DWR and EWR to ODI 11g). Apart from mentioned steps above do we need to take care any other Tasks.
    My main point is … any code related things can take care (if I am not wrong)…

    Please kindly let me know. Thanks.

    • HI,

      as you are upgrading only the data base nothing is necessary to be done at ODI repositories. All previous “developed” code is fully compatible!

      Thanks for visit us!

      • Hi can any one tell what is space requirement for ODI upgrade. We have DB size of 15GB

        • Hi,

          For master repository 200 MB is more than enough in general…

          For work repository depends on how much long you wish to keep the operator log’s. But in general, 1 GB is more than enough too!

          • Hi,
            Can you guys tell me what is the required space(Table Space) while upgrading from 10g to 11g. Cloned work and master repositories are of 5GB including SWAP and TEMP tables.
