Hi, I would suggest doing a new install on unicode and migrate application and data with the API (RRR|Chive for instance). Doing this on the DB level can result in strange things if you have ANY ascii character greater than 127 in for examples your labels.
Also some data in unicode will not fit in the max length of the fields, which can be fixed by increasing the field length as needed. The places to do this will not be found if you do this on the DB level.

Your NLS_CHARACTERSET value indicates you have a NON-UNICODE DB. You will need to convert your DB to UNICODE to sort out your issue. Oracle 12c has a conversion utility (DMU) to convert a DB to UNICODE. We had to use DMU recently to convert a DB to UNICODE. BE WARNED: This process takes very long and you need a lot of free space available to do this (depending on the size of your DB). Please also remember to set the LANG variable correctly on your Remedy ARS server if that runs on a Solaris or Unix OS afterwards, to ensure Remedy talks in UNICODE to the DB. Alternatively, stick to NON-UNICODE and forget about adding “very special” characters to your data….
