Symptoms  fails while installing OBIA at "Configuring ODI" steps on RAC database. 

Below are the log entries from Install log:

Internal Bug 21814364 - CONFIGAPPS.SH FAILS WITH ERROR "syntax error near unexpected token '('

Once the installation is completed using single RAC url datasource created at the time of installation will have single RAC instance url. You cannot update db url back with RAC based DB URL .There are few datasources like bip_datasource, mds-owsm which gets created at the time of OBIEE config steps ie after running file.

While running RAC connect string was given which had created " multi source " type datasources ,ie there will be three datasources.

bip_datasource - rac0 ----url pointing to RAC node 1
bip_datasource - rac1 ----url pointing to RAC node 2

But, while running if single instance RAC connect string is given Generic Datasources are created like odiMasterRepository ,ApplicationLiteDB and thus we cannot create manual multisoure type datasources after installation.
