Installing Oracle BI Presentation Services Plug-in


Use one of the following procedures to install the Oracle BI Presentation Services Plug-in depending on your web server:

Installing BI Presentation Services Plug-in (ISAPI)

Use this procedure to install BI Presentation Services Plug-in (ISAPI) on all machines hosting IIS instances that will service Oracle Business Intelligence.

Oracle BI components are installed using the Oracle Business Intelligence Installer.

  1. For Oracle BI Presentation Services, select either Basic or Advanced installation type, depending on your deployment.

    NOTE:  If the Advanced installation type has been chosen for installing the BI Presentation Services, then the Systems Management component for BI Presentation Services will be deployed in the Oracle Application Server installed on the machine. If the Basic installation type has been chosen, then the Systems Management component for BI Presentation Services will be deployed OC4J.

  2. For Oracle BI Presentation Services Plug-in, select the setup type Custom.
    • Select the feature Oracle Business Intelligence Presentation Services Plug-in for installation.
    • If you are co-locating other BI components on this machine (for example, BI Presentation Services) select the other desired components for installation.
  3. Select Microsoft IIS on the Application Server Selection screen.
  4. On the BI Presentation Services Connection Details screen, enter the host name and port for a BI Presentation Services instance. The BI Presentation Services Plug-in will be later configured to communicate with all instances of BI Presentation Services in the deployment.

The installed ISAPI Plug-in instances will be configured to communicate with the BI Presentation Services instances by setting parameters in the isapiconfig.xml file on each machine that hosts the ISAPI Plug-in. This is described in the topic Configuring BI Presentation Services Plug-in.

NOTE:  This topic refers to the two machines on which ISAPI Plug-ins have been installed as BI-ISAPI-01 and BI-ISAPI-02.

Installing BI Presentation Services Plug-in for J2EE Application Servers

When the BI Presentation Services component is installed, analytics.ear and analytics.war files are installed in OracleBI\web on Windows and OracleBI/web on Linux or UNIX. Deploy the appropriate file to the J2EE container on the Application Server of your choice. See Systems Requirements and Supported Platforms Guide for Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 10.1.3.2 for a list of supported Application Servers. Perform this deployment on all instances of the J2EE container in your web cluster.
