OBIEE 11g installation on Linux

The last articles in the site (HOT) The most visited articles in the site

When you think of installing the OBIEE, you must think of installing the OBIEE Server and the OBIEE Client. To understand better the OBIEE architecture you must understand the usage and creation of the OBIEE repository. To better understand how the OBIEE is working you have to imagine that the OBIEE Client is creating the OBIEE repository and OBIEE Server is using it. In this article I will show how the OBIEE 11g is installed on a Linux (Centos) box. At this point we have: - the Oracle 11g database already installed - the schemas needed for the OBIEE Server are already created. Here you can see how the rcu (Repository Creation Utility) is used to create the OBIEE schemas. Notes: - the OBIEE 11g installation is done on Linux (Centos 5.4) - the OBIEE version is 11.1.1.5

Here is the link used for downloading the OBIEE server installation software: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/bi-enterprise-edition/downloads/index.html

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux: Oracle Business Intelligence 11.1.1.x Downloads Choose the version you want (generally the latest), accept the installation and then click on the " All Supported Platforms " under the " Oracle Business Intelligence 11g (11.1.1.5.0)". This is my case, but you can choose the other one. If you are here you can download the " Oracle Business Intelligence Developer Client Tools Installer " as well because you will need it, but I will not use it for this installation. In this article I will show how the OBIEE server is installed only.

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux: files to be downloaded Now the files must be copied on Linux server. For sure, if you can, you could download the zip files directly on the Linux server; however this is not generally done on a production server. So, I will copy the zip files to the Linux server in the obiee-server-11.1.1.5 directory situated on the desktop. Generally, for production environment we have a stage directory. Here we unzip the OBIEE installation files and we get the bishiphome directory like in the image below:

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux: bishiphome directory Now we have just to run the Installer and to install the OBIEE server on our Linux box: cd /home/oracle/Desktop/obiee-server-11.1.1.5 cd bishiphome cd Disk1 ./runInstaller
