Applies to:

Oracle Argus Analytics - Version 1.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Installing Oracle Argus Analytics 1.1.1.

While following the Oracle Argus Analytics Installation Guide Release 1.1.1, Section 2.3 Preparing the DAC Repository (Informatica Only), on Step 6
the OPVA - DATAWAREHOUSE Execution Plan fails with the following error message:

30 SEVERE Tue Jun 25 07:59:31 PDT 2013 Request to start workflow : 'OPVA:wkf_SDE_AS_Application_User_Enterprise' has completed with error code 2
31 SEVERE Tue Jun 25 07:59:31 PDT 2013
ANOMALY INFO::: Error while executing : INFORMATICA TASK:OPVA:wkf_SDE_AS_Application_User_Enterprise:(Source : FULL Target : FULL)
MESSAGE:::
Irrecoverable Error
Request to start workflow : 'wkf_SDE_AS_Application_User_Enterprise' has completed with error code 2
Error Message : The specified task name, workflow name, or folder name does not exist.
Command Used: pmcmd startworkflow -sv OPVA_IS -d Domain_ip-walhs20000 -u Administrator -p **** -f OPVA -lpf /u01/oracle/dacpva/bifoundation/dac/Informatica/parameters//AN_SRC.an_dwh.OPVA.wkf_SDE_AS_Application_User_Enterprise.txt wkf_SDE_AS_Application_User_Enterprise

Changes

The 'pmcmd' call made through DAC to start an Informatica workflow uses a switch '-lpf' to provide the
absolute path to the parameter file.  While it works for all other operating systems, for Linux it works 'sporadically'.
