(Doc ID 2355935.1)

Oracle Reports Developer - Version and later
Generic UNIX


Trying to execute rwconverter.sh command as OS users other than installation user using the SUDO approach described in <NOTE:<427548.1> plus passing HOME as parameter in the SUDO command, the following error is displayed:



[testuser@hostname ~]$ sudo -u oracle HOME=/home/testuser DOMAIN_HOME/reports/bin/rwconverter.sh source=test.rdf stype=rdffile dtype=repfile compile_all=yes batch=yes overwrite=yes 
dbgc_init_all failed with ORA-48141 

If not passing HOME variable as sudo parameter then there is no issue.


[testuser@hostname ~]$ sudo -u oracle DOMAIN_HOME/reports/bin/rwconverter.sh source=test.rdf stype=rdffile dtype=repfile compile_all=yes batch=yes overwrite=yes
