Navigate to D:\MW_OBI11G\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\servers\bi_server1\security, check if there is a file called: boot.properties

image

If not, make it using a text editor and enter :

image


username=weblogic

password=Password

Do the same for D:\MW_OBI11G\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\servers\AdminServer\security

image

Reboot your BI-server.

Letís make a couple off handy start and stop .bat files:

01 Start Weblogic.bat:

@echo off

cls

d:

D:\MW_OBI11G\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\bin\startWebLogic.cmd

Run the script, wait to you see the IPADRESSES:

02 Start Opmn.bat:

d:

D:\MW_OBI11G\instances\instance2\bin\opmnctl startall

03 Start Bi-server.bat:

@echo off

 

cls

d:

 

D:\MW_OBI11G\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\bin\startManagedWebLogic.cmd bi_server1

 
pause

Run the script:

image

Wait to you see the IP-adresses.

Letís check if everything went OK:

login to the enterprise manager using the weblogic account:

http://localhost:7001/em

image

image

This looks OK, letís go to the Console:

http://localhost:7001/console/

image

image

Click on servers:

image

image

Now for the grant finale, check OBIEE:

http://localhost:9704/analytics

image 

Select the Quickstart Dashboard:

image

Click around and have Fun!

image

I like to stop the server using scripts to prevent it from going into a recovery mode on the next start:

96 stop bi-server.bat:

@echo off

cls

 

d:

D:\MW_OBI11G\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\bin\stopManagedWebLogic.cmd bi_server1

97 Stop OPNM.bat:


@echo off

cls

 

d:

D:\MW_OBI11G\instances\instance1\bin\opmnctl stopall

98 stop weblogic.bat


@echo off

cls

 

d:

D:\MW_OBI11G\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\bin\stopWebLogic.cmd
