Installing Oracle BI Apps

The following is a short description of what steps have to be taken to install Oracle BI Applications (OBIA) version This version of OBIA is the first version which runs on the new Oracle BI 11g platform

This document assumes, that Oracle BI 11g has been installed already. Make sure the Weblogic Administration Server is running before the installation starts.

  • Unpack the installation software
  • Navigate to the folder; ‘Oracle_BI_Applications’
  • Start Setup.exe
  • A wizard will start

  • Click Next
  • Enter the installation directories — {MIDDLEWARE_HOME}
    • There are three important locations;
      • Oracle BI Home Locatie  –> {MIDDLEWARE_HOME}\Oracle_BI1
      • Oracle Instance Locatie  –> {MIDDLEWARE_HOME}\instances\instance1
      • Oracle Domain Location –> {MIDDLEWARE_HOME}\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain

  • Click Next
  • Enter the Weblogic Administrator Details

  • Click Next
  • In the background, some examinations are performed. This could take a while
  • Select the applications (default = everything), which should be installed

  • Click Next
  • A summary appears with the e=information about what will be installed

  • Click Next
  • Wait for the installer to finish
  • Click Finish

After the installation has finished, one can check what has been installed. In the ‘Oracle BI Home’ there has been an additional folder (biapps) added.

You will find the new Repository RPD-file in; {MIDDLEWARE_HOME}\Oracle_BI1\biapps\repository

    1. Oracle BIA was the first version certified for 11g. Previous versions were certified for 10g. Please check the documentation for more details.

  1. Hi, thanks for the excellent post.

    I have OBIEE version installed on my PC and I have installed Simple Install while doing it. Now when I try to install OBIA, I am facing issue trying to connect to weblogic server though I am providing the proper details.

    The weblogic server is Up and running as seen from the Fusion Middle ware screen.(localhost:7001/em). Could you please help me?

    Thanks a lot..
