OBIEE 12c: Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise 12c (12.2.1) Installation


Proceed with the important information in Table 2-2 before you begin the installation and configuration process. It identifies important tasks and checks to be performed to ensure that your environment is properly prepared for installing and configuring the Oracle Business Intelligence.

  • Verify certification and system requirements
  • Identify a proper installation user
  • Select the installation and configuration directories on your system
  • Install a certified JDK
  • Install and configure a database for mid-tier schemas
  • Hint  only unzip the following zip files:
    • fmw_12.2.1.x.0_infrastructure_Disk1_1of1.zip
    • fmw_12.2.1.x.0_bi_[platform]_Disk1_1of2.zip
    • fmw_12.2.1.x.0_bi_[platform]_Disk1_2of2.zip

      The latter two disks create setup_bi_platform-12.2.1.0.x_[platform]-2.zip, this zip file you do *not* want to unzip. Keep it zipped as the installer uses it in the zip format.

  • Example Linux install  (assumes RCU database is previously installed and configured).
    This example is with the 12.2.1.0 base release; however, it also applies to any later patchset (e.g. – 12.2.1.1, 12.2.1.2, 12.2.1.x, etc.).

    • copy installation files or create a mount point for your installation files.
    • ensure you have method for graphical user interface (e.g. vnc or local xterm)
    • JDK: install your JDK in your desired location (system or local) and configure it in your PATH and JAVA_HOME

      for example:

      • cp jdk-8uXX-linux-x64.tar.gz ../jdk_location/
      • cd ../jdk_location/
      • tar -xvzf jdk-8uXX-linux-x64.tar.gz
      • export JAVA_HOME=../jdk_location/
      • export PATH=../jdk_location/bin
      • confirm:
        which java
        ~/jdk1.8.0_XX/bin/java
      • confirm:
        java -version
        java version “1.8.0_XX”
        Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_XX-b17)
        Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.XX-b01, mixed mode
      • Install Infrastructure (including Weblogic and RCU):
        • java -jar fmw_12.2.1.x.0_infrastructure.jar

      • Configure OBIEE
        •  …/Oracle_Home/bi/bin/config.sh | cmd
        • Note: You may install the RCU schemas prior to installing or configuring OBI via the standalone RCU […/Oracle_Home/oracle_common/bin/rcu ] which has advanced features or during the Configuration Assistant

          bi_config_02

          Note: It is recommended to install the domain outside the [ORACLE_HOME]. It separates the configuration from the binaries for easier patchset patching.  For Development environments, the default is acceptable.
