Installation and Configuration of OBIEE

The Blog is about installation and Configuration of OBIEE (Basic Installation)

You can obtain OBIEE here

The Prerequisites:
1. JDK1.5.0 or above Download JDK

A Server with temporary tablespace of around 200 MB

The Document follows the installation procedure on RHEL 4 update 5

1. Unzip the
2. It will deploy

3. untar the biee_linux_x86_101341_1of1.tar using
$tar -xvf biee_linux_x86_101341_1of1.tar

4. It will create RH_LINUX
Run: Server/Oracle_Business_Intelligence/

You follow the screens, and specify the necessary informations

5. Follow the install log located in

Once completed you will be given an output stating to browse the html page in the location of Oracle BI HOME

Start working using
http://hostname:port (port will be 9704)/xmlpserver

The login page failed to login using Administrator/Administrator
1. Shutdown the oc4j using

oc4j will give the options like
-shutdown -port (ORMI Port) -password (Password which you gave during the installation) for oc4jadmin

ORMI Port:
Locate rmi.xml in the
Inside you can get the port of the ORMI Port. In my case it is 23971

I stopped oc4j like
ORACLE_BI_HOME/setup/oc4j -shutdown -port 23971 -password Welcome1
Shutdown OC4J instance...

The locate the xmlp-server-config.xml inside
$ORACLE_BI_HOME/ xmlp/ XMLP/ Admin/ Configuration /xmlp-server-config.xml

Change the variable
property name=”SECURITY_MODEL” value=”BI_SERVER“/
property name=”SECURITY_MODEL” value=”XDO“/

3. Restart the oc4j from
$ORACLE_BI_HOME/setup/oc4j -start

Now the Administrator/Administrator will work

You can now navigate to Admin page from welcome page.


When you access the Dashboard from the OBIEE Page, you may encounter

500 Internal Error: - Server error: An exception occured. The current application deployment descriptors do not allow for including it in this response. Please consult the application log for details.

I resolved the issue like this:

1. Edit ./oc4j_bi/j2ee/home/applications/analytics/analytics/WEB-INF/web.xml

Replace the port as 9703 instead of 9710

2. Go to $ORACLE_BI_HOME/setup/

$ stop

wait for 10 seconds

$ stop

wait for 10 seconds

$ start

$ start.

Now click on the application Dashboard. It will work fine.
