Last updated on MAY 19, 2014
Applies to:Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 188.8.131.52.0 to 184.108.40.206.140415 [Release 11g]
Oracle Exalytics Software - Version 220.127.116.11.0 to 18.104.22.168.0 [Release 1.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
An Oracle Exalytics summary advisor script includes a "delete aggregates" statement which is intended to delete any existing aggregates with the same name. For example, an aggregates script may start out with commands as shown:
create aggregates ....
When running the script, it sometimes fails while trying to delete any existing aggregates with the same name. In these cases, any subsequent runs of the create aggregates script will result in an error similar to that shown below:
[nQSError: 84007] [Aggregate Persistence] Metadata delete failed.
[2013-01-25T14:00:04.000-05:00] [OracleBIServerComponent] [ERROR:1]  
[ecid: 004p268xGLD2FSUCi7IbKo00046h0000C1] [tid: 45993940] 
[Aggregate Persistence] Physical table
"TT_AGGR_STORE1".."EXALYTICS"."SA_Year0000A683" already exists in the RPD.
Please use DELETE AGGREGATES or manually remove the table from your RPD and your database.
This occurs intermittently and does not happen while running every aggregation script.
