Oracle Call Interface (OCI) Issue Causes Oracle BI Server Crash on Windows 2003 when Under Heavy Load and Connecting to Oracle Database 11g: Due to an issue in the Oracle Call Interface (OCI) client for the Oracle Database 11g, unexpected Oracle BI Server crashes might occur when the BI Server is running on Windows 2003 R2 32-bit / 64-bit Enterprise Edition and there are a high number of concurrent users attempting to connect to the Oracle Database 11g.
The workaround is to apply a Windows patch bundle for Oracle Database 188.8.131.52, patch bundle 27 or higher. Note: This issues only applies to OBIEE release 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11.
