Enterprise Manager 13c - Database Usage Tracking Report Bug with FTP destination

Within Oracle Enterprise Manager 13c you have a nice Feature under the BI Publisher Reports to generate Database Usage Tracking Reports and to deliver them to a FTP Server, called BurstToFTP.


Unfortunatelly if you follow the very good official step-by-step documentation on how to setup and to configure the Database Usage Tracking Report you will not be able to get your Database Usage Tracking Reports under your FTP Server :-(


After you are done with the above setup and configuration steps and you perform an execution of the Database Usage Tracking Report, you will receive following error:

[INSTANCE_ID=.1515472353767] [DELIVERY_ID=1075]Error deliver document to FTP::Exception happened when calling deliver API::Error deliver document to FTP::FILE=[::Exception happened when calling deliver API::oracle.xdo.delivery.DeliveryException: oracle.xdo.delivery.DeliveryException: SFTP Client cannot be openedoracle.xdo.service.delivery.DeliveryException: oracle.xdo.delivery.DeliveryException: oracle.xdo.delivery.DeliveryException: SFTP Client cannot be op 

If you are checking the corresponding bipublisher.log under gc_inst/user_projects/domains/GCDomain/servers/BIP/logs/bipublisher you will find following error messages:

The Problem occurs under Oracle Enterprise Linux and Redhat Enterprise Linux.

This is a know bug and luckily there has been a Patch released for this issue.

You will need to download the Patch 23233792: FTP DELIVERY FAILS WITH ORACLE.XDO.DELIVERY.SSH2.SSHEXCEPTION for 12.1.3.0




After you applied the Patch to your Oracle Cloud Control 13c, the BurstToFTP Feature will work without problems.
