: Before engaging with the online community or CA Support, administrators can generate a system health report. See CA PPM System Health Report, Customization Discovery, Statistics, and Log Analysis. Many of the support issues analyzed for data warehouse failures are caused by errors or omissions in basic setup information. For example, database configuration, DBLINK, entity or time slice setup, time zone mismatch between the application and database servers, and SQLNET.ORA parameters.
