About

Dick Dunbar

Dick Dunbar is an escalation engineer for the Oracle Business Intelligence product (obiee).  I live and work in Santa Cruz, California.  The tips I'll be sharing on this blog have been collected from multiple customer incidents. 
I'll explain the techniques I use to detect, avoid, and repair obiee problems reported to Oracle.

I've been collecting these issues since 2003 when I was an IBM onsite support engineer to Siebel.
The first few entries will come quite slowly as I struggle to find the "proper voice" to explain common technical issues that relate directly to obiee.

I believe the best documentation is read and followed by a machine ( executable scripts);  few of us have the time to read, understand and implement everything related to our work.

Update: This is harder to get started than I thought;  "No one who reads can clean an attic"  -anon

These are my own views, not necessarily the views of Oracle.
