Configuring OWB Installed as a Standalone Instance

repository in the database. Oracle recommends that you back up the older OWB repositories before installing the 11.2 repository or upgrading to the 11.2 repository.

Cleaning an Oracle Warehouse Builder Repository


To clean an existing Oracle Warehouse Builder repository: 1. At the command prompt, start SQL*Plus:
% sqlplus SQL*Plus: Release 11.2 - Production on Mon July 27 13:14:43 2009 Copyright (c) 1982, 2009, Oracle. 2. All rights reserved.

When prompted for user name, log in as OWBSYS user.


Enter user-name: owbsys Enter password: password Connected to: Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release 11.2 - Production With the Partitioning, OLAP and Data Mining options

3.

Stop Oracle Warehouse Builder Control Center service.


SQL> @OWB112/owb/rtp/sql/stop_service.sql

See "stop_service" on page 9-12 for more information.


4.

Connect as user with administrative privileges:


SQL> connect sys as sysdba Enter password: password

5.

Run the clean_owbsys.sql script to drop all the objects in the existing OWBSYS schema:
SQL> @OWB112/owb/UnifiedRepos/clean_owbsys.sql

Creating an OWBSYS Schema with Repository Objects


The process of creating (or refreshing) an OWBSYS schema generates the corresponding locked user account within the specified tablespace. In this example, the tablespace is USERS. When the script completes, you have to unlock the account and set its password; the instructions in "Configuring OWB Installed as Part of Oracle Database 11g Release 2" on page 4-1 show how to unlock OWBSYS and OWBSYS_AUDIT accounts. Note that the OWBSYS schema is populated only when you run the Repository Assistant for the first time and create the first workspace in the repository.

To set-up an OWBSYS schema with repository objects: 1. At the command prompt, start SQL*Plus:

Configuring OWB Installed as a Standalone Instance

Enter user-name: sys as sysdba Enter password: password Connected to: Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release 11.2 - Production With the Partitioning, OLAP and Data Mining options 3.

Run the cat_owb.sql script to set up OWBSYS in a tablespace in your database. For example, this command sets up OWBSYS in the USERS tablespace:
SQL> @OWB112/owb/UnifiedRepos/cat_owb.sql USERS

Configuring the Control Center Service


If you are installing OWB 11.2 on an older Oracle Database release, or if you integrating OWB with Oracle Business Intelligence Standard Edition (Oracle Discoverer), you must run the reset_owbcc_home.sql script to ensure that the Control Center Service functions correctly. To configure the Control Center service: 1. Confirm the correct Oracle Home path, paying particular attention to capitalization. In this example, the path is OWB112. The path entered in the next steps must be an exact match to the Oracle Warehouse Builder home directory, including letter case match.
2.

At the command prompt, start SQL*Plus:


% sqlplus SQL*Plus: Release 11.2 - Production on Mon July 27 13:47:31 2009 Copyright (c) 1982, 2009, Oracle. All rights reserved.

3.

When prompted for user name, log in as a user with administrative privileges.
Enter user-name: sys as sysdba Enter password: password Connected to: Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release 11.2 - Production With the Partitioning, OLAP and Data Mining options

4.

Run the reset_owbcc_home.sql script to force the Control Center Service to run from Oracle Warehouse Builder 11.2 installation:
SQL> @OWB112/owb/UnifiedRepos/reset_owbcc_home.sql OWB112

Unlocking the OWBSYS and OWBSYS_AUDIT Accounts


To unlock OWBSYS and OWBSYS_AUDIT accounts: 1. At the command prompt, start SQL*Plus:
% sqlplus SQL*Plus: Release 11.2 - Production on Mon July 27 13:57:03 2009 Copyright (c) 1982, 2009, Oracle. 2. All rights reserved.

When prompted for user name, log in as a user with administrative privileges.
Enter user-name: sys as sysdba

Creating the First Workspace in the Repository

Enter password: password Connected to: Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release 11.2 - Production With the Partitioning, OLAP and Data Mining options 3.

Unlock the OWBSYS user account, and set its new password:
SQL> alter user owbsys identified by password account unlock; User altered.

4.

Unlock the OWBSYS_AUDIT user account, and set its new password:
SQL> alter user owbsys_audit identified by password account unlock; User altered.

Setting the OWB Home for Remote Installations


You must create a database directory OWB_REMOTE_ADMIN that is accessed by remote installations, so they can read the server's OWB_HOME/owb/bin/admin directory.
1.

At the command prompt, start SQL*Plus:


% sqlplus SQL*Plus: Release 11.2 - Production on Mon July 27 14:06:12 2009 Copyright (c) 1982, 2009, Oracle. All rights reserved.

2.

When prompted for user name, log in as a user with administrative privileges.
Enter user-name: sys as sysdba Enter password: password Connected to: Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release 11.2 - Production With the Partitioning, OLAP and Data Mining options

3.

Set the OWB_REMOTE_HOME variable using script remote_owb_install.sql:


SQL> @OWB112/owb/UnifiedRepos/remote_owb_install.sql OWB_REMOTE_HOME

Creating the First Workspace in the Repository


To use a repository, you must define an initial workspace, and the owner of that workspace. The following instructions use the Repository Assistant. To create a workspace: 1. At the command prompt, navigate to the UNIX bin directory:
% cd OWB112/owb/bin/unix % pwd OWB112/owb/bin/unix 2.

Start the repository assistant.


% ./reposinst.sh

3.

On the Welcome screen of the Repository assistant, click Next.
