Symptoms

After deploying a new Repository (RPD), OBIEE 12.2.1.0.0 fails to start and the log file shows error:

which is /u01/app/oracle/product/exalytics/exalyticsdomains/menlo/fmw/user_projects/domains/bi_foundation/bidata/service_instances/ssi/metadata/datamodel/customizations/liverpd.rpd

 As a workaround, uploaded an older RPD and successfully restarted the system.  After some time, the same error occurred again.
