In This Section:
The Analytics Link installation package supports installing all Analytics Link software components on supported 32-bit or 64-bit operating systems. During the installation and configuration process, when you configure the Analytics Link Server, the Web application server you choose determines whether Analytics Link is installed in 32-bit mode or 64-bit mode.
For example, if you use a 64-bit version of WebLogic Server, Analytics Link is installed in 64-bit mode. If you use Apache Tomcat, the 32-bit version of Tomcat is automatically installed and Analytics Link is installed in 32-bit mode. (Apache Tomcat is only supported when using Analytics Link with pre-126.96.36.199 releases of EPM System.)
When using the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (64-bit) platform, Analytics Link Server can only be deployed on WebLogic Server (64-bit).
The installation and execution of Oracle Universal Installer must be done by the same user who installed EPM System.
Analytics Link is installed using Oracle Universal Installer 11.2. The Analytics Link installation package contains the installation package for Oracle Universal Installer 11.2.
