OBIEE Downgrading Repository

I wrote a Q&D Command line tool to downgrade an OBIEE repository. You have to run it on the oldest OBIEE-server.

I've got "Login failed" when I am trying to open newly generated repository :(

Old password doesn't work...

Hmmm..strange, did you try using an "empty" password?

There is no need to use such a utility any more.
If you want to downgrade repository from 11.1.1.5 to 11.1.1.3, you can use the out-of-the-box utility ...\oraclebi\orahome\bifoundation\server\bin\nqgenoldverrpd.exe. It is delivered within OBIEE Client Tools 11.1.1.5.
