 OBIEE 11g installation on Linux

 

 

    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:

   OBIEE 11g installation on Linux: Oracle Business Intelligence Downloads

   OBIEE 11g installation on Linux: Oracle Business Intelligence Downloads

From this link I have chosen the 11g version. So, if you want to download it, click on it !

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux: Oracle Business Intelligence 11.1.1.x Downloads

 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: Oracle Business Intelligence files download 

    OBIEE 11g installation on Linux: Oracle Business Intelligence files download

 

    From this list I will chose the files related to Linux x86-64-bit (this is my case).

 

At the end of the download you will have the following 6 files downloaded:

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux: files to be downloaded

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

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

 

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux: runInstaller

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux: runInstaller

 

The following screen will appear:

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux:  Welcome

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux:  Welcome

 

Here we have nothing to do. Just take a look to the screen and press "Next". The following screen will appear:

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux:  Install Software Updates

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux:  Install Software Updates

 

Here I will choose "Skip Software Updates" and I will press on "Next". The following screen will appear during the installation of the OBIEE server:

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux: Select Installation Type

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux: Select Installation Type

 

Here I will choose "Enterprise Install" and after that I will click on "Next".

The following screen will appear during the installation of the OBIEE server:

In this screen I will choose to install OBIEE server ("Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition") and also Business Intelligence Publisher.

(You can have OBIEE server installed without BI Publisher !!!)

Click on "Next".

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux: BIPLATFORM Schema

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux: BIPLATFORM Schema

 

Here you have to choose the connection information to the BIPLATFORM schema. BIPLATFORM schema and the password were defined before the OBIEE server installation.

Here is an article showing how to create the OBIEE schemas using Oracle RCU.

Click on "Next".

On this screen, it's a good idea to save the installation information. This can be done by clicking on the "Save" button.

Here is an example of such a file:

 

Type: Enterprise Install - Create New BI System
          Installation Details
                   Middleware Home: /u01/oracle/obiee_home
                   BI Oracle Home: /u01/oracle/obiee_home/Oracle_BI1
                   WebLogic Server Home: /u01/oracle/obiee_home/wlserver_10.3
                   BI Domain Home: /u01/oracle/obiee_home/user_projects/domains/bifoundation_domain
                   BI Domain Name: bifoundation_domain
                   Instance Home: /u01/oracle/obiee_home/instances/instance1
                   Instance Name: instance1
         

          Configure Components
                   WebLogic Console
                                      http://linux.mydomain:7001/console
                   Oracle Enterprise Manager
                                      http://linux.mydomain:7001/em
                   Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition
                                      http://linux.mydomain:9704/analytics
                   Business Intelligence Publisher
                                      http://linux.mydomain:9704/xmlpserver

 

  This information is good to keep it saved. 

 

One time this file is saved we can click on "Finish". The installation is done and we can connect to the OBIEE Analytics for instance: 

 

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux:  OBIEE Analytics Connection

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux:  OBIEE Analytics Connection

 

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux:  OBIEE Analytics Interface

OBIEE 11g installation on Linux:  OBIEE Analytics Interface
