OBI EE Brief Description
Oracle Business Intelligence is a Business Intelligence tool helping decision makers
to analyze enterprise data and take right decisions. It is composed by 2 main
components:


OBI Server
OBI Presentation Server
OBI Server is the core server behind Oracle Business Intelligence Solution. It
provides the power behind Intelligent Dashboards (web-displayed Reports) for
access and analysis of structured data. It allows a single information request (for
reports for example) to query multiple data source.
OBI Presentation Server is the core server behind HTML pages viewed by users. It
provides the formatting and presentation of Intelligent Dashboards (web-displayed
Reports). OBI presents a lot of reports (table, chart, pivot and so on …) to web
users.

What’s new?
New Additional Installer Features
The following bullets list changes in this new version (10.1.3.3) since the old one
(version 7.8.2.5 and 10.1.3.2):

OBI Installer installs OBI Publisher, which provides advanced reporting
capabilities

OBI Installer can now perform 2 different installation types
(Basic and Advanced)
New Installation Types provided by OBI Installer
During installation, you will be asked to choose a type of installation. The selection
you will make is only based on the type of web server on which OBI will be
deployed.


Basic Installation Type = the web server is a J2EE Application Server
Advanced Installation Type = the web server is Oracle Application Server
The following are the Basic Installation type requirements and actions:
Requires J2SE 5.0 (other name of 1.5)
Provides a choice to deploy the Presentation services and plug-in in Oracle
Containers for J2EE (OC4J)
Installs demonstration application that includes a repository, presentation catalog
and XML data source
The following are the Advanced Installation type requirements and actions:
You plan to link OBI with Oracle Single Sign-on (OSSO or OAID)

New Key Changes
The OBI Infrastructure includes the following major features that are either new
with OBI or represent substantial changes from Siebel Analytics that might be
relevant to your deployment after the upgrade is complete.

The OBI Presentation Catalog architecture has changed from that of the
Siebel Analytics Web Catalog. It is no longer a single file, but is split across
multiple files that are stored in directories on the operating system. There is
a utility tool to migrate the web catalog (see later)

The OBI infrastructure 10.1.3.2 Clustering now includes support for
clustering servers running Presentation Services and clustering servers
running OBI scheduler
New Parameter Changes

AIX OS Administration Tasks
Before you install Oracle Business Intelligence, you must have the appropriate
permissions for installing and configuring on your company system, as shown in the
following table. Make sure that you have write access to the installation directory
that you plan to specify in the installer.
NOTE: Reader is aware we are describing one specific method to install OBI
product, using third-party software, especially for remote access and using
specific name conventions. Obviously, you can easily act in a different way.
The following tasks should be completed before installing OBI software under AIX:
1. If you are planning to run the AIX installation remotely, or on a PC-based
machine, install third-party X window software (for graphic mode install)
a. Create a VNC desktop, by running VNC server

2. Determine your installation directory and create it if it is necessary (here
installation directory can be /Siebel/obiee10.1.3.3)
3. Choose a user ID that can run all OBI processes (here user is siebel)
ATTENTION: YOU CANNOT INSTALL OBI EE AS THE USER ROOT
So, don’t forget to switch as user siebel for instance
4. Make sure that /dev/random and /dev/urandom are available
OBI presentation services requires these pseudo random number generator
devices

Verifying Disk space
Before upgrading you must verify disk space on your machine, because Oracle
Installer will need the following disk space:


2Gb for OBI EE installation
At least 200 MB for temporary directories (/tmp and /var/tmp)
TO be sure of disk space of your machine, execute the following command:
> df –m__
In case of insufficient disk space, please perform the following command in the
concerned directory:
> chfs –a size=+xxxM <your directory>__
For example:
> chfs –a size=+1000M /tmp__

Installing all third-party components
Before installing your OBI Platform, you should install all third-party components or
deployment components which need to be installed.
For instance, Presentation Services Servlet, database software or ODBC drivers.
For AIX, you must install Java Development Kit (JDK) 1.5 or higher before
installing
Installing JDK 1.5 on AIX
1. Determine your kernel bit mode (32 or 64 bit)
In aixterm console
> bootinfo-K
> 64
2. Download right JDK with the following web site link

install web server on AIX.
In our case, we are installing IBM Web Sphere Application Server (WAS) 5.1.1
NOTE: Reader is aware we are describing one specific method to install OBI
product, using third-party software, especially for remote access and using
specific name conventions. Obviously, you can easily act in a different way.

License Considerations
Before installation, you should be sure to get right license key and right XML file
corresponding to installation file.
Oracle BI license file are xml files
If you don’t have right license keys or you don’t know where you can get these
files, go to this following link:

Running “check script” to verify all pre requisites
“UnixChk.sh” is a script for UNIX-based installations (including Linux). In order to
make sure that the installation machine has all the necessary requirements for a
successful installation, run this UNIX check script to check the prerequisites. The
script is lightweight and easy to use, and checks for the following conditions:
■ Supported operating system
■ required patches and file sets (if applicable)
■ Supported configurations
■ Adequate disk space
■ User is not root
The UnixChk.sh script is installed in two locations:
 The installer directory containing setup.sh and setup.jar. From here, you can
run UnixChk.sh before running the installer (that is, before running setup.sh)
 The directory OracleBI/setup/UnixChk.sh. From here, you can run UnixChk.sh
after installing Oracle BI
Usage:
UnixChk.sh [Oracle_BI_install_dir]
where Oracle_BI_install_dir is the directory in which Oracle BI is to be installed.
Omit this argument if Oracle BI is to be installed in the default installation
directory (/usr/local/OracleBI).
Hereafter, the procedure to execute script checking all pre requisites
ATTENTION: It is a very important step; since after running this script, you will
be sure that your platform is “ready” for OBI EE installation. Not running this
check script is bound to drive you to a very risky installation in term of
installation success.

Configuring OBI Installation
Start/Stop Oracle BI Components
Oracle BI uses shell scripts to set environment variables and run specific
component shell commands. These scripts provide for the basic setup of UNIX
systems. These scripts are located in the directory OracleBI_HOME/setup.
The following tables are summarizing the 2 main commands to start/stop Oracle BI
components:

Main Oracle BI Configuration files
Initialization automatically updates the component configuration files after
installation for the default, out of the box configuration. Upon start-up, Oracle
Business Intelligence uses initialization files to set parameters.
There is one main configuration file for Oracle BI server and another one for Oracle
Presentation server:
Presentation Server Configuration
Configuration settings for the Oracle BI Presentation Services are made in the file
instanceconfig.xml, located in the directory OracleBIData_HOME\web\config.
You can customize the Presentation Server by modifying the entries in
“instanceconfig.xml” and adding new entries to override internal default settings.
You need to make changes to instanceconfig.xml only if you want to change default
parameters, such as the name of the Presentation Server Catalog, or override
internal default settings, such as the time for client connections to expire.
Analytics Server Configuration
The Oracle Business Intelligence Server software uses an initialization file named
NQSConfig.INI to set parameters upon startup. This file includes parameters to
customize behavior based on the requirements of each individual installation.

Configuring HTTP Web Server
A default pre-packaged WebARchive (WAR) file, analytics.war, is included with the
Oracle BI Presentation Services installation, located as shown in the following
table.
However, if you modify the web.xml file (for example, to reconfigure the Web
server location and listening port), then you should recreate the analytics.war file.
This task uses the jar utility included in the Java JDK 1.5 package (found in the
<JAVA_HOME>/bin directory).
This procedure uses the following file locations and commands:
