]]

 

Cause

The system component services for BI components are not started.

The upgrade assistant is not able to communicate to OPMN.

Solution

  1. Start OPMN services via the command:

    [middleware_home]/instances/instance1/bin> opmnctl startall

  2. Confirm the status of opmn and the system components under the instance home with:

    [middleware_home]/instances/instance1/bin> opmnctl status

Note: You may  also start the System Components and check the status via Fusion Middleware Control

 

  1. Retry the RPD file upgrade.
