B.2 Understanding Installation and Configuration Log Files

The installation and configuration log files can contain useful information to help troubleshoot any issues you may encounter. For more information about these log files and their contents, see "Configuring Installation and Configuration Log Files" in Installing Software with the Oracle Universal Installer.

B.3 Verifying ODI Client and Repository Compatibility

If you are using Oracle Data Integrator with other Oracle Fusion Middleware products, make sure you have read the Understanding Interoperability and Compatibility.

Oracle strongly recommends that you use identical versions of different ODI components such as ODI Studio, ODI Console, standalone and J2EE Agents, and executable scripts for a specific site or platform. In addition, you should make sure your Master and Work Repository versions are compatible with these components (Table B-1).
