OBIEE 11g Installation : High Level Steps

This post covers OBIEE installation overview, for detailed steps check OBIEE installation Guide here  or quick installation guide of OBIEE 11g here

OBIEE 11g release latest version (as of 30 April 2011) is 11.1.1.3 which can be downloaded from here 

Software Required

1. Database (Oracle, IBM DB2 or MS-SQL)
2. Repository Creation Utility (RCU)
3. OBIEE 11g (11.1.1.3 is latest OBIEE as of 30 April 2011)
4. WebLogic 10.3.3 (Optional – Only required for 64 bit machine or IBM AIX)
5. JDK 1.6 64 bit (Optional – Only required for  64 bit machine)

.  

OBIEE 11g Installation Key Points

1. OBIEE includes Answers, Dashboards, Delivers, Repository Administration Tool, Office, Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher and Oracle Real Time Decisions. When you install OBIEE you select from below three products.

.

.

2. Unlike other fusion middleware products, All Business Intelligence components intended for a WebLogic domain must be configured at the same time. i.e. It is not possible to extend an weblogic domain containing some OBIEE components, to include other OBIEE components at later stage.

3. If you are installing OBIEE on 64 bit machine then use software install and configure OBIEE using 64 bit JDK later using config.sh or config.bat.

4. Like most of other Fusion Middleare components, OBIEE consists of two type of components i.e. Java Components (running on weblogic domain) and System Components (managed by OPMN and run as BI Instance). For more information on Fusion Middleware concepts click here

5. Java Components include Action Service , BI Office, BI Publisher, RTD …where as System Components include BI Server, BI Java Host, BI Presentation Service, Cluster Controller, BI Scheduler…

6. After installing OBIEE 11g on a machine, do not install OBIEE 10g. You can install OBIEE 11g on a machine on which OBIEE 10g is already installed (Shutdown OBIEE 10g before installing OBIEE 11g)

7. OBIEE supports following installation types

a) Simple Install – OBIEE installation on single machine with minimal input required from user during installation/configuration (useful for development environments)

b) Enterprise Install– More configuration option than simple install or to scale out enterprise deployment for single or multi node OBIEE deployment. (Useful for production, pre-production and performance test environments)

c) Software Install – This installation type installs just OBIEE binaries which you must later configure. (Use this installation type for 64 bit machines or IBM AIX)
.


.

8. In software only installation type (third option above) install WebLogic Server first (this will create middleware home) and then install OBIEE software in this middleware home.

9. High Level OBIEE 11g installation step for 64 bit machine are (Installation of JDK, weblogic, and OBIEE config step are not required for simple install on 32 bit machine)

a. Install Database
(or use pre-existing database) to create OBIEE schema (Only Oracle, MS-SQL server, IBM DB2 are certified database for OBIEE schema)

b. Create OBIEE schema (BIPLATFORM , MDS) using RCU , more on RCU here (RCU is currently available for 32 bit Linux and Windows only)

c. Install 64 bit 1.6 JDK (Sun or JRockit)

d. Install WebLogic using 64 bit JDK (Use steps mentioned here ). Make sure you install correct weblogic version i.e. use 10.3.3 weblogic for 11.1.1.3 OBIEE . DO NOT install weblogic 10.3.2 or 10.3.4 weblogic with 11.1.1.3 OBIEE

e. Install Business Intelligence Software
using setup.exe (windows) or runInstaller (Linux)  (This step will install WebLogic and OBIEE software and create WL_HOME and ORACLE_HOME for OBIEE i.e. Oracle_BI1)

f. Configure OBIEE using config.sh or config.cmd from $OBIEE_ORACLE_HOME/bin (This step will create domain containing WebLogic Admin Server and one or more managed server)

10. You can scale out OBIEE installation either vertically or horizontally. In vertical scaling two or more nodes of OBIEE cluster are installed/configured on same machine. In Horizontal scaling out, each OBIEE node of cluster is installed on its own dedicated machine.

.

11.You can install OBIEE interactively (default mode) or in silent mode . For silent installation use option -silent and provide response file with option -response  i.e. runInstaller (or setup.exe) -silent -response response_file

12. After installation, verify following URLs

Web Application running on Admin Server (default port 7001)
a) WebLogic Console – http://servername:7001/console
b) Fusion Middleware Control – http://servername:7001/em

Web Application running on Managed Server bi_server1 (default port 9704)
c) Analytics – http://servername:9704/analytics
d) Web Service Manager Policy Manager – http://servername:9704/wsm-pm
e) BI Publisher – http://servername:9704/xmlpserver
f) Real Time Decisions – http://servername:9704/ui
g) BI Office – http://servername:9704/bioffice/about.jsp
 

.

Integration of OBIEE with Oracle Internet Directory for User/Identity Store and Oracle Access Manager 11g for Single Sign-On coming soon…

Hi Atul,

when trying to run the rcu.bat file as part of OBIEE 11g(11.1.1.3) installation on windows 7 64 bit home edition I am getting the following error
“windows cannot find C:\Users\manoj\Desktop\Oracle.Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again”.
Please help me how to overcome this error, I am not able to understand why it is looking for C:\Users\manoj\Desktop\Oracle.

@ Manoj,
RCU is not supported from 64 bit machines

Check this

Run command prompt as administrator and run rcu.bat from this command prompt

Hello Atul,

Thanks for all your online help.

I have a 64 bit server with 8 CPUs and 16 gigs of RAM. I’m looking to learn some more things.
Oracle Apps R12, and OBIEE for sure. Perhaps RAC using VMWare.

What would be the order of operations for installing Apps R12, and OBIEE?

Install Oracle Apps first, then OBIEE?

Would I need to create a second database for OBIEE, or just use a new schema in the existing one?

Any other hints, greatly appreciated!

Best,

Rodger

Atul Kumar says November 29, 2011

@ Roger,
You can install OBIEE and EBS in same database but this is not recommended. For learning purpose I don’t see any problem installing OBIEE in same DB as EBS.

If you wish to put them in same DB then install R12 first which will install EBS DB and then create OBIEE schema using RCU

Reply
Rodger says December 1, 2011

Hi Atul,

Thanks for the response.

I started installing R12. As always, the DB was fine, but I have middle tier issues to resolve.

As I think about this now, I have a few concerns.

Both R12 and OBIEE have a middle tier, the Oracle Apps server, correct?

If so, can the apps server for both R12 and OBIEE be the same? Or, when I install OBIEE, do I need to install a second middle tier?

For port conflicts, when I install OBIEE, do I need to have R12 up and running fully for the installer?
Or, just note the list, and manually change the ports?

Thanks a lot!

Atul Kumar says December 3, 2011

Q: Both R12 and OBIEE have a middle tier, the Oracle Apps server, correct?

A: Depends which OBIEE version we are talking here , in OBIEE 10g yes it runs on oracle iAS but from OBIEE 11g , it runs on weblogic server

Q: can the apps server for both R12 and OBIEE be the same?
A: No, both OBIEE and EBS must use their own apps server .

Q: when I install OBIEE, do I need to install a second middle tier?
A: Yes , you must

Q: For port conflicts, when I install OBIEE, do I need to have R12 up and running fully for the installer?
Or, just note the list, and manually change the ports?

A: If you leave R12 running, OBIEE installer will not assign used ports. Changing ports later is task in itself and if you are new then I wouldn’t recommend . Leave R12 running and then install OBIEE.

Thanks for the repsonse. in OBIEE 11g do we have the scheduler component? do we need to configure the scheduler component too in obiee 11g same as obiee 10g? because we do scheduler configuration in obiee 10g right.

Atul,

can you please provide the sequence for informatica and dac and OBIA components on 2nd server. On 1st server i completed the installation of oracle db,jdk,weblogic,rcu and obiee. Now on 2nd server i need to install informatica,dac,obia(i think might be on windows) please guide me with the steps.

i am currently installing OBIEE 11g on linux x86_64.we have got 2 servers say server1.com and server2.com and 1 windows server say win1

on server1.com i have installed oracle db, JDK 1.6.30,weblogic 10.3.5,started with rcu and got struck with sysdba privilages(from my comp) so after i get them i will proceed with installing RCU and OBIEE11g. But i have noticed by going through your blog when are installing obiee11g at the last it also installs weblogic and configure weblogic domain right? but my question when we installed the weblogic already so will that have any problem?please clarify my doubts.

Now coming to 2nd server server2.com. Here i am not sure what to install first? can you please guide me with the sequence of steps here?
now coming to win1 machine here i will install the informatica 9.01 client and what else i need to install?

so meanwhile i get access to sysdba privilages can i start installing obia,informatica and dac pieces?

please guide me with the things. Appreciate your help.

@Atul,

on server1 i want to install OBIEE(enterprise install) so for that i have done with oracle db,JDK,weblogic 10.3.5,RCU and now OBIEE11g is in progress. But i can see from your blog that OBIEE11g itself installs weblogic and configuration of weblogic domain along with EM etc. So did i do something wrong? i should not install weblogic in advance for obiee enterprise install?

on server2 i want to install informatica,dac
on win1 i want to install informatica and dac client and OBIA. Do i need to install OBIEE11g again on windows?

can you please clear me with this stuff?

thanks

Atul Kumar says January 11, 2012

@ Ravi,
There is nothing wrong with installing weblogic. If weblogic is already available in middleware home then obiee installer will skip this step else it will install weblogic.

For server2, iformatica & dac please ask support or informatica/dac forum as I am not familiar with these products (they are on my to do list for quite sometime)

@Rodger,

Thanks for your response. yeah i tried finding it using the same find command but in vain.generally it should be somewhere in weblogic folder which we have installed using obiee, but not sure i dont find one.

Has anyone had any success in installing OBIEE (11.1.1.5), DAC (10.1.3.4.1), Informatica (9.0.1 hotfix 2) and Oracle BI Apps (7.9.6.3) on Linux 64 bit?

We have been provided 2 physical Linux servers (say A & B) and 2 virtual server (say C & D) for the same. We were able to install obiee 11g on linux el5 machine (A). We were able to also install the Informatica server (9.0.1 hotfilx 2) and DAC server on the machine (B). As per e-delivery, Bi apps 7.9.6.3 is not available for linux 64 bit platform, hence we have downloaded for windows and planning to install on windows machine(C).

Has anybody have idea, whether how could we install bi apps 7.9.6.3 on Linux as our OBIEE 11g is installed on Linux machine(A).
Any thoughts/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Reply
Rodger says January 12, 2012

????

Run the find command exactly as I gave it.
For the entire server.

Another variation:
find / -type f | grep -i “http”

Rereading, you have three servers there.
I’ve no experience with that.
find on all three.

Why not try installing everything cleanly on a single server first? Then, after you learn what is involved, try it on multiple servers. It’s complex enough on a single server.

Atul Kumar says January 13, 2012

@ Ravi,
I don’t think OHS is installed with OBIEE 11g (and for that reason you ca’t find httpd.conf), you will have to configure OHS separately if you want to access OBIEE via OHS.

If Admin Server is shut down, weblogic user can’t login to analysis/presentation server. The analysis page comes up but login fails.

@ Nitin Aggarwal

Q: If Admin Server is shut down, weblogic user can’t login to analysis/presentation server.

A: This means there is some issue with analysis/presentation server.

Check managed server logs and also logs under OBIEE components managed by OPMN ($ORACLE_INSTANC/diagnostics).

Q2: I want to create 1 server as primary node and scale out to secondary node.

A: Use Oracle Enterprise Deployment Guide (EDG) to deploy OBIEE in HA using http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23943_01/doc.1111/e15722/create_domain.htm#BAJGGFCJ

3- Objective is to provide HA & failover using only 2 servers.
4- Now if primary server goes down, people should be able to use analysis using managed server on secondary machine – bi_server2.

    Shutdown bi_server1 and then try login from bi_serevr2. Check managed server log for error.

    How many OBIEE instances (managed by OPMN) do you have. It could be possible that though there are two managed servers but you did not expend OPMN processes on second node.

    Which document you used to configure OBIEE in HA ?

I simply did a scale-out and verified that I am able to access analytics using both of the URLs.

    @ Vijay,
    Yes you can use 64 Bit JDK. There are two place you enter JDK -jreLoc [JRE_LOCATION] this is used only by installer and not for actual running on OBIEE server. During Domain Creation in Advanced Option installed should prompt for location of JDK (It should default JDK location identified by installer), you should change at this location.

    I am sure you can change location of JDK location later as well (after OBIEE installation) but that could be tricky, search Note in My Oracle Support (MOS) – earlier Metalink.

IP oraafpo-server oraafpo-server

hostname
oraafpo-server

Thanks

@ Amar,

Change /etc/hosts from

127.0.0.1 localhost oraafpo-server
::1 localhost oraafpo-server
IP oraafpo-server oraafpo-server

To

127.0.0.1 localhost
::1 localhost oraafpo-server
IP oraafpo-server oraafpo-server

i.e. remove oraafpo-server from 127.0.0.1

Do everything again inclduing loading of OBIEE schema

I tried with the above configuration on hosts entry but it was failing to discover the ports with error ports already in use .

So I removed the IP + hostname and only kept the entries as below and it was installed successfully.But I am still wondering the same entries work on my other instance.

127.0.0.1 localhost oraafpo-server
::1 localhost oraafpo-server

Again thanks for all your suggestion Atul really appreciate.

Hi,

I need to ask a question, if I’ll be migrating the OBIEE App from a server to a completely different server.

Is it sufficient to copy the OBIEE directory & transfer it for the application to run on the new server, and of course changing the hosts file ?

Or we need other configurations to be altered?
