OBIEE 11g - Manually Upgrade Catalog from 10g to 11g

This allows for catalog upgrade from 10g to 11g version without having to run the GUI tool - UA. 


1. Copy 10g catalog to a temp location
2. Stop 11g BIPS
3. Update instaceconfig.xml to the 10g catalog location i.e. <CatalogPath>10g_Location</CatalogPath>
4. Add these flags to instanceconfig.xml –
<Catalog>
<UpgradeAndExit
>true</UpgradeAndExit>
</Catalog>

5. Start BIPS – This will upgrade the catalog and shutdown automatically
6. Remove the flag true from the instanceconfig.xml
7. Start BIPS again
