Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition(OBIEE) 11g Installation


Below screenshots will guide you through step by step installation of OBIEE 11 g Fusion Middleware product .Before start the setup make sure Oracle 11g database installed and RCU setup completed.

Step 1: Download OBIEE 11g (11.1.1.3.0) version from below link of OTN .

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/bi-enterprise-edition/downloads/business-intelligence11g-240521.html

Prerequisite has been installed as  : Oracle 11g DB R2 and RCU 11.1.13.3 .

Now extract the download copy into two different folders ….

Merge the two folders content into single directory “..\bi_windows_x86_111130_32_disk1_1of2\bishiphome” .

Step 2: For DHCP computer having no permanent IP Address you need to configure Microsoft default Loopback address .Follow the steps provided under section “Installing a Loopback Adapter on Windows 2003 or Windows XP”  from Nicolas Loopback Adapter Configuration .The glimpse of it as below:

Step 3: Execute the setup.exe .

Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) pre-requisite verification started .

Then the OFMW 11g Installer template initiated.

Step 4: Click Next on Welcome screen appeared below.

Step 5: Select the “Installation Type” as ‘Simple’ .This is most easiest and recommended for first try .All the parameters will be set by default.

N.B:- Enterprise installation is mostly required in Scalable system having the configuration required across multiple Weblogic domain or joining a existing domain to existing Weblogic Server .The “Software Only Install” requires the configuration done in different phase after the enterprise wide installation is over .

Step 6: Pre-requisites check has been done .

Step 7: Specify the installation location .

Step 8: Enter the ‘Weblogic’ Admin credentials . In my case the password is : ‘weblogic#1’ (without quotes to meet Oracle Password standard) .

Step 9: Configuring the components . In my case I select all .

Step 10: Specify the connection parameters ..

N.B:- Be aware of the joker type error message thrown here during my first installation as “INST-08029 Unable to connect to Database with given credentials.” It seems to be an Oracle BUG .See the issue in screenshot .



The reason of this error is the BIPLATFORM schema password .In RCU utility if you provide the password same as Schema name it would be creating trouble. Not sure whether it doesn’t accept the same password or it doesn’t accept the underscore(‘_’) character .I have not investigate further on it 😦

Anyway I get rid of it after dropping the RCU schema for BI and recreate the same with password as ‘rcu’ .This password has been provided here .

Step 11: Specify security update section .

Step 12: Finalise the installation .

The installation started …..

After installation done the configuration Process starts …

Step 13: The installation and configuration completed .Click Finish .

So finally OBIEE11g has been installed successfully with the below access details for different application :

Voici … OBIEE11g installation has been completed successfully .

  1. good find on OBIEE not allowing the schema password to be the same as the schema name. I had done the installs earlier, except I took the effort of putting down a different password in during my earlier pass. 5 months down the road, I do a similiar install on 64-bit linux, and was puzzled why I was getting the credential errors. As you said, this is a joker type of error 🙂

  2. Hi I am installing OBIEE 11g (11.1.15.0), Do I need to configure Microsoft default Loopback address before?

    Thank you
