OBIEE11g Installation on 32 bits XP-pro IV

This is part IV of a four part series:

Part I: http://obiee101.blogspot.com/2010/08/obiee11g-installation-on-32-bits-xp-pro.html

Part II: http://obiee101.blogspot.com/2010/08/obiee11g-installation-on-32-bits-xp-pro_16.html

Part III: http://obiee101.blogspot.com/2010/08/obiee11g-installation-on-32-bits-xp-pro_9802.html

Part IV: http://obiee101.blogspot.com/2010/08/obiee11g-installation-on-32-bits-xp-pro_8977.html

Navigate to D:\MW_OBI11G\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\servers\bi_server1\security, check if there is a file called: boot.properties

If not, make it using a text editor and enter :

image



username=weblogic


password=Password






Do the same for D:\MW_OBI11G\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\servers\AdminServer\security


image


Reboot your BI-server.


Let’s make a couple off handy start and stop .bat files:


01 Start Weblogic.bat:




@echo off


cls


d:


D:\MW_OBI11G\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\bin\startWebLogic.cmd





Run the script, wait to you see the IPADRESSES:


 image


02 Start Opmn.bat:




cls

 

d:


D:\MW_OBI11G\instances\instance2\bin\opmnctl startall




03 Start Bi-server.bat:




@echo off

 

cls


d:

 

D:\MW_OBI11G\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\bin\startManagedWebLogic.cmd bi_server1

 
pause




Run the script:


image


Wait to you see the IP-adresses.


Let’s check if everything went OK:


login to the enterprise manager using the weblogic account:


http://localhost:7001/em


image


image


This looks OK, let’s go to the Console:


http://localhost:7001/console/


image


image


Click on servers:


image


image


Now for the grant finale, check OBIEE:


http://localhost:9704/analytics


image 


Select the Quickstart Dashboard:


image


Click around and have Fun!

I like to stop the server using scripts to prevent it from going into a recovery mode on the next start:


96 stop bi-server.bat:




@echo off


cls

 

d:


D:\MW_OBI11G\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\bin\stopManagedWebLogic.cmd bi_server1




97 Stop OPNM.bat:




@echo off


cls

 

d:


D:\MW_OBI11G\instances\instance1\bin\opmnctl stopall




98 stop weblogic.bat




@echo off


cls

 

d:


D:\MW_OBI11G\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\bin\stopWebLogic.cmd




Till Next Time

hey john, are you running the Oracle DB Server and OBIEE on the same XP-pro machine? If so, how much memory are you working with, and did installing OBIEE mess up your DB Oracle HOME?

John Minkjan said...

@shoplifter

I run also a 11GDb, total memory off the box is 4 gb.

Hi John,

I installed OBIEE 11G on a Windows 7 and on a XP box for testing.

When I try to logon to OBIEE on the Win7 machine it denies access. Even when I manually add a user in the Weblogic console. The XP box works fine with the credentials supplied during the installation.

Do you have any idea how to solve this problem?

Regards Machiel

Hi John (Guys),

as there are some posts here for John, I'll share my experience.

OBIEE 11G install took 155 minutes on a VM (2048MB RAM assigned during install over USB2 to external hard drive). Other stuff:

- WinXP Pro SP3
- Oracle 11G R2 DB (ORCL)

Only failed step was opmnctl reload, not critical to completion of install process here.

App is slow to start, so bump up the RAM available via the VM.

Incomplete installs to date:

- Windows 7 32bit (de-bugging this one from Step 5 in the installer)

Hope everyone is well.

Justin

Hi John,

I'm stuck and the grant finale.
The BI Cluster state status is running, but when I checked BIEE browser:
http://localhost:9704/analytics


The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request.

Do you have any idea about this?

Hi All,

I am unable to proceed step 5, ie Administrator password setup. I tried different password, but it was accepting the password and show 'X' symbol in Administrator. Let me know how to over come this.

Hi John,

I installed OBIEE 11g on my laptop.Everything went fine while installation. When i try to start Oracle Process Manager(instance1) it gives me "Error 1053 : The service did not start in a timely fashion.".I can login into analytics,BIP,Admin console. But iam not able to login into Oracle Fusion Middleware control. when i give the username and password the application just Hangs it won't error out or give any message. It just says "Logging....." i waited for more than hour nothing happend.

I was wondering if you know anything about this issue to resolve.

Thanks
Ajit

Hi - I was able to open the console finally. However, when I changed the rpd, it would take forever to login. I believe its a memory thing. I am running 11g database and obiee11g on vista. Is there a way I can change the default repository back without having to log in to the console? thanks
