BO XI is installed successfully with Clarity 8.1 and Oracle database.

But if NSA "logs" tab is checked, just after the BO IX installation, the following error exception will be shown:

When user tries to run reports from Clarity, they won't work and error "RPT-0007: Specified report did not execute properly" will be shown.


    • Re-install the BI patches enclosed in the BI XI DVD: "C:\Temp\BO\Disk1\cabi\patch\biekpatch.exe"

    • Ensure All the BO Services are up and running.

    • Ensure password encryption is DISABLED.

    • Make sure that the SERVICE_NAME on your tnsnames entry is 'niku' all lower case. i.e.:
      your_entry =(DESCRIPTION =(ADDRESS_LIST =(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = your_host)(PORT = your_port)))(CONNECT_DATA =(SERVICE_NAME = niku))) i.e: Customer's system database name is 'niku10g' and the username is 'niku' NIKU10G =(DESCRIPTION =(ADDRESS_LIST =(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = localhost)(PORT = 1521)))(CONNECT_DATA =(SERVICE_NAME = niku)))
    • Verify the following parameters on NSA, under "Reporting Home Dir : X:\dbo"

      Service URL:

      Important! <servername> must be the server name, 'localhost' cannot be used
