The Migration Tool (that was copied from the OBIEE 12c environment) is being executed in the OBIEE 11g environment to create an Export bundle (that will contain the metadata information from the 11g Oracle Home). For example:

$ java -jar /orabi/12c/bi-migration-tool.jar out /orabi/Oracle_BI1 /orabi/user_projects/domains/bifoundation_domain /orabi/12c/11gexport.jar

The creation of the Export Bundle fails and the following error is thrown:

Problem during export: Webcat ... /orabi/code/catalog/ProdCat does not exist
Export failed: Webcat ... /orabi/code/catalog/ProdCat does not exist
Migration action failed
