Upgrading Oracle Helix ALM Projects on Linux Servers
Note: This information only applies to Helix ALM (and TestTrack 7.5 - 2016.1) running on Linux.
Helix ALM no longer supports the OpenLink Oracle drivers due to an issue with Unicode characters. You must use the Oracle Call Interface (OCI) to connect to Oracle databases.
If you are upgrading a server on Linux, you need to reconfigure projects stored in Oracle databases to use the OCI driver and then upgrade the projects.
Install the Oracle Instant Client
The Oracle client includes the OCI driver. If you do not already have an Oracle client, download and install the Oracle Instant Client.
Create a new RDBMS connection
Remove and re-add the project
Delete the old RDBMS connection
Upgrade the project
