I'm working in an environment that has some old software. Currently they are running BO XI R2 over a Oracle 8i and 11g data warehouse. I have done a new install of BO and migrating reports and universes. The connection to Oracle 8i does not exit and is not supported by SAP. Does anyone have a work around for SAP BO 4.2 SP2 working with a Oracle 9 Drivers? Any help here would be great. Upgrading Oracle 8i is not an option at this point. FYI, the Repository and Audit DBs for the new installation are in SQL Server and Universe Connect to the 11g DB is working fine. Thanks for the help

and is not supported by SAP

Raise a message with SAP and ask for an alternative solution.

If you are facing any technical challenges/errors - Explain them briefly.

What do you mean "raise a message with SAP" ? On which grounds ?

Hi Denis,

Always PAM output or a formal channel (OSS message or other services) is the right way to suggest customers to be on supported platforms. Upgrading database to supported version might be the only solution but in above query requestor mentioned that "Upgrading Oracle 8i is not an option at this point" so I thought it is better to suggest him to go thru the formal channel to get same answer.

There are no workarounds. oracle 8 and 9 are not supported. Customer need to move their data to supported DB or not use the product.

There's no way to be in a fully supported configuration, but you could try using a 10g or 11g client. Note that you will need the 64-bit client.
