    his is the first of three blogs performing a basic out of the box installation of the newly released Oracle BI

    pplications 11.1.1.8.1.

    m performing a completely fresh installation on our Exalytics/Exadata servers using an E-Business Suite

    2.1.3 database as the data source.

    n part 1 below I’ll be going through the pre-requisites required before BI Apps can be installed, including

    nstalling OBIEE, ODI and creating the warehouse and repositories using the RCU.

    art 2 will cover installing and configuring BI Apps – http://blog.3sixty-analytics.com/?p=1300

    art 3 will demonstrate a simple example of load data into the warehouse and viewing it in OBIEE –

    or the pre-requisites for BI Apps we’ll be performing the following steps:

    1. Review System Requirements

    2. Determine the Environment

    3. Download BI Apps Install files from Oracle

    4. Configure Oracle DB for warehouse & repositories

    5. Install a JDK

    6. Install Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition

    7. Upgrade Weblogic server to 10.3.6

    8. Install Oracle Data Integrator

    9. Create schemas for Oracle BI Applications

    REVIEW SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

    efore beginning review the system requirements for BI Apps. This can be found at

    ttp://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/ias/downloads/fusion-certification-100350.html

    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/ias/downloads/fusion-certification-100350.html)

    nd downloading the file for the release of BI Apps being installed, in this case 11.1.1.8.1:

    ystem Requirements and Supported Platforms for Oracle Business Intelligence Applications Release

    1.1.1.8.1 ( xls (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/bi/biapps-11-1-1-8-1-2199792.xlsx) )

    his is a spreadsheet with six tabs covering required versions for the OS, additional software etc. The

    upport source applications tab is required later on during the install as this lists the projects included

    within BI Apps.

    ote: it doesn’t mention it in the spreadsheet but we found out the hard way that the database which will

    old the data warehouse needs to have the spatial component installed. To see if it is run the following

    ommand in sqlplus:

    3/82

    elect comp_id, version, status, comp_name from dba_registry where comp_id=’SDO';

    spatial is installed you will get one record returned:

    COMP_ID VERSION STATUS COMP_NAME

    ------------- ------------- --------------- ---------------

    SDO 11.2.0.3.0 VALID Spatial

    spatial isn’t installed then install it before continuing.

    DETERMINE THE ENVIRONMENT

    My Environment has four servers:

    1. E-Business Suite 12.1.3 database server (with VISION demo data)

    2. Database server (for the DW warehouse) with Oracle 12c pre-installed. This is our Exadata server 3. Repository Database Server. A small 12c database just used for repositories and sample data

    4. BI Apps Server. This is our Exalytics server.

    ll four are linux x86-64 and I have all the userids/passwords/access I need on all of them.

    DOWNLOAD BI APPS INSTALL FILES FROM ORACLE

    he following set of files needs to be downloaded before starting. Most come from the BI Apps media

    ack on edelivery, but there are a couple patch files which are downloaded from the oracle support

    website.

    p13529623_1036_Generic.zip (This is the patch for Weblogic 10.3.6)

    NSTALL ORACLE CLIENT ON THE BI APPS SERVER

    t various points during the installation we’ll need to connect to the data warehouse on the database

    erver, so although not compulsory, it’s easier if we have a basic Oracle client installed on the BI Apps erver before we begin.

    nzip the “Oracle Database 12c Release 1 Client (12.1.0.1.0) for Linux x86-64” zip file and run the

    unInstaller command from the client directory. I chose a custom install with just SQL*Plus, Oracle

    atabase Utilities and the Oracle Call Interface and placed it in a home directory by itself.

    CONFIGURE ORACLE DB FOR WAREHOUSE & REPOSITORIES

    Once BI Apps is fully installed there will be a lot of tra!c between the data warehouse and BI Apps servers

    s the users run reports. To maximize the throughput of data the SDU and TDU parameters should be

    ncreased from the default 2KB setting.

    n the listener.ora on the database server I added (SDU=16384)(TDU=16384):

    (SID_DESC= (SDU=16384)(TDU=16384)

    (GLOBAL_DBNAME=dbserver.local.com)

    (ORACLE_HOME=C:appproduct12.1.0ora12c)

    (SID_NAME=ora12c))

    hen added the same parameters to the tnsnames.ora on the BI Apps server:

     dbserver =

    (DESCRIPTION = (SDU=16384)(TDU=16384)

    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = dbserver.local.com)(PORT = 1521))

    (CONNECT_DATA =

    (SERVER = DEDICATED)

    (SERVICE_NAME = ora12c.local.com)

    )

    )

    Check the guidelines for Oracle Database in the BI Apps install doc (sections 2.1 & 2.2) for more details on

    his and other aspects to consider.

    nstall a JDK 

    I apps required a JDK and the install guide tells you to download and install JDK 1.6.0_35 or better.

    owever it’s not strictly needed as OBIEE installs its own JDK and this is 1.6.0_35, so we can use that for

    ll the BI Apps components.

    nstall Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition

    he starting point for a BI Apps installation is OBIEE 11g. BI Apps now integrates itself with an existing

    OBIEE installation and is controlled by the same Enterprise Manager instance.

    here are a number of
