So I installed OBIEE, now what?

So I realized more than a week has gone since I finished installing OBIEE and while I’m going to the “Oracle BI Suite EE 10g R3: Build Repositories” class next week I still want to play around and get my questions started.

I went to the OBIEE install and configuration guide in OTN and found out there’s a specific order in which OBIEE processes neeed  to be brought up, here’s my quick and dirty attempt at doing this the first time and then trying to automate as much as possible into a script on the second pass:

Notes:

(1) Oracle specifies that common.sh and .variant.sh should not be run, they are only called from within the delivered scripts.

  1. Go to the OracleBI_HOME/setup directory where the delivered scripts reside
    cd /opt/OBIEE/OracleBI/setup
  2. OBI Server
    ./run-sa.sh start
    #do as the script instructs you an run the command below to monitor the startup process
    tail -f /opt/OBIEE/OracleBI/server/Log/NQServer.log
  3. OBI Presentation Services
    ./run-saw.sh start
    #this command also starts the Javahost process
  4. OBI Javahost
    #already started by run-saw.sh
  5. OBI Scheduler
    ./run-sch.sh start
    #do as the script instructs you an run the command below to monitor the startup process
    tail -f /opt/OBIEE/OracleBI/server/Log/NQScheduler.log
  6. OBI Cluster Controller
    ./run-ccs.sh

Just for fun I went ahead and created a script that takes { start | stop | forcestop } as parameters and executes each step in the correct order, you can get it from its own thread: obiee.sh

Ok, I also ran into a OBI Scheduler Process SchedulerScriptPath issue, follow the link to find out how this got resolved.
