    1. Open a new console window.

    2. Extract the file to a local directory.

    3. Navigate to the /Disk1/install directory.

    4. Type the following:

      runInstaller

4.2 Installing Oracle Business Intelligence

Note the buttons you use to navigate the installer screens. You can click Help to view more information about each screen, or Installed Products to review the existing Oracle software on your computer. Click Back or Next when enabled to move backward or forward in the installer. When the Install button is enabled, clicking it begins the file installation. Click Cancel to stop the process and exit the installer. Additionally, clicking Deinstall Products (only available in the Welcome screen) enables you to deinstall existing Oracle software.

To install Oracle Business Intelligence with Oracle Universal Installer:

  1. Start the installer following the instructions in Section 4.1, "Starting the Installer".

  2. Review the Welcome screen, which provides information about Oracle Universal Installer, and click Next to continue.

    The installer performs some prerequisite checks (for more information, see Section 1.4.2, "Installer Prerequisite Checks").

    If this is the first time you have installed an Oracle product on the target computer, the installer creates the inventory directory for installation-related files (for more information about this directory, see Section 1.4.1.1, "The Installer Inventory Directory").

  3. At the Specify File Locations screen:

    1. Verify the source path in the Source Path field.

      The source path is the full path to the products.xml file from which the product will be installed. The installer detects and uses a default path. Do not change the path.

    2. Verify the Oracle home name in the Destination Name field.

      You can use the default Oracle home name or select another name.

    3. Verify the destination path in the Destination Path field.

      The destination path is the directory name and full path to the Oracle home directory where the product will be installed. You can use the default name and path provided or select another name.

      The destination path must be a real, absolute path. It cannot contain environment variable names or spaces. For instructions on selecting the Oracle home directory, see Section 1.2, "Oracle Home Considerations".

    4. Click Next to continue.

  4. At the Language Selection screen:

    1. Select the languages in which you want Oracle Business Intelligence to run.

      Hint: The more languages you select, the longer the installation time. The languages you select here determine the languages in which Discoverer Plus help is available. Note that you can install help in additional languages separately (for more information, see Section 4.6.1, "Installing Translated Help Files for Discoverer Plus After Installation").

    2. Click Next to continue.

  5. You might be prompted to verify that the computer has sufficient memory available for the installation.

    For more information about hardware requirements, see Section 2.1, "Hardware Requirements".

  6. At the Specify Port Configuration Options screen, select the Automatic radio button (recommended) and click Next to continue.


    Note:

    Oracle recommends that you choose the Automatic option because this is appropriate for most installations.

4.3 Postinstallation Tasks

The post-installation tasks for Oracle Business Intelligence are divided into the following parts:

Note: Unless otherwise differentiated, ORACLE_HOME denotes the Oracle Business Intelligence home directory you used during installation.

4.3.1 General Checklist

Review the following general postinstallation checklist and perform the tasks that apply to your installation and environment.

4.3.1.1 Updates

Once you have completed your installation, check for the latest certification and software updates on OracleMetaLink (http://metalink.oracle.com). OracleMetaLink provides access to technical information and assistance from Oracle Support Services.

For the latest information about Oracle Business Intelligence, check the Oracle Technology Network at http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/bi/index.html.

The Oracle Technology Network (http://www.oracle.com/technology) also provides services and resources that developers can use to build, test, and deploy applications using Oracle products and industry-standard technologies.

4.3.1.2 TNS Names

Before end users can use Discoverer, you must add entries to the tnsnames.ora file for the database containing the data that users will be querying (and for the database on which the EUL is installed, if different).

The tnsnames.ora and sqlnet.ora files are installed in the ORACLE_HOME/network/admin directory. You can update the files manually using a text editor, or use the configuration tool, Oracle Net Configuration Assistant. For more information about the configuration tool, refer to Oracle Net Services Administrator's Guide in the Oracle database documentation library.

4.3.1.3 Port Numbers

The installer automatically assigns ports to Oracle Business Intelligence components that require them. If the installer detects a port conflict while installing a component, it chooses an alternate port in the port number range allocated to the component.

Table 4-1 This table lists port numbers

Component Default port number

Discoverer

Uses the same port as Oracle HTTP Server (which has a default of port 80 (on Windows) or port 7777 (on Solaris), and a port range of 7777 to 7877)


You can view and change the port numbers used by Oracle Business Intelligence components using Application Server Control. For more information about viewing and changing the port numbers used by Discoverer, refer to Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer Configuration Guide.

4.3.1.4 Associating with an Oracle Application Server Infrastructure

When using Oracle Business Intelligence, the existence of an associated Oracle Application Server Infrastructure is optional. You can:

  • run Oracle Business Intelligence without associating it with an Infrastructure

  • associate Oracle Business Intelligence with an existing Infrastructure after installation

Note that the Oracle Application Server Infrastructure is a prerequisite for many Oracle Application Server middle tier components. If you do not associate Oracle Business Intelligence with an Oracle Application Server Infrastructure, there are a number of Oracle Business Intelligence features that you will not be able to use, including:

  • Discoverer Portlet Provider and Discoverer portlets

  • Single Sign-on (SSO) functionality in Discoverer

  • public and private Discoverer connections (the Discoverer Connect Directly page is displayed instead)

For more information about associating Oracle Business Intelligence with an Oracle Application Server Infrastructure, refer to Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer Configuration Guide.

4.3.2 Postinstallation Tasks for All Discoverer Components

Before Discoverer end users can start analyzing data, the steps in either or both the following sections must have been completed:

4.3.2.1 How to Prepare for Multidimensional Analysis?

Before users can use Discoverer to query data from a multidimensional data source, the following steps must have been completed:

  1. Install and prepare the database, as described in Section 4.3.2.1.1, "How to prepare an Oracle9i Release 2 Database for use with Discoverer" or Section 4.3.2.1.2, "How to prepare Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition for use with Discoverer".

  2. Set up the data warehouse.

    If you are using Oracle Business Intelligence Warehouse Builder, see the Oracle Warehouse Builder User's Guide. Otherwise, see the Oracle 9i OLAP User's Guide (for Oracle9i Database) or the Oracle OLAP Application Developer's Guide (for Oracle Database 10g).

    The tasks to perform include:

    • installing the schema

    • creating appropriate metadata

    • (optional) creating an Analytic Workspace and adding content to it

    • granting appropriate privileges to users (users must have SELECT privileges on the OLAP dimension tables, measures, and views)

    Note that all users of Discoverer Plus OLAP have the D4OPUB role, which in turn has the OLAP_USER role. The OLAP_USER role provides access to OLAP metadata in the database.

  3. Use Application Server Control to install the Discoverer Catalog on the Oracle OLAP database instance that users will connect to.

    For more information about how to install and configure the Catalog, refer to:

    • the Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer Configuration Guide

    • the Application Server Control help system

  4. Use Application Server Control to authorize database users (for more information, see the Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer Configuration Guide).

  5. Perform optional configuration tasks as appropriate (for more information, see the Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer Configuration Guide).

  6. Provide end users with the information required to launch Discoverer and to connect to the multidimensional data source.

    For more information about configuration and the information required by end users, see the Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer Configuration Guide.

4.3.2.1.1 How to prepare an Oracle9i Release 2 Database for use with Discoverer

Complete the following tasks to run against Oracle9i Release 2 Database:

  1. If you have not already done so, install the Enterprise Edition of the Oracle9i Database, Release 2.

    Note: When you install the database client, be sure to install it into a separate Oracle home directory.

  2. Configure the database, following the configuration settings shown in Best Practices for Tabular Cube Aggregation and Query Operations. To access this document, download patch set 2529822. You must follow these configuration settings exactly to ensure that BI Beans works correctly and performs well. Because this document is updated as needed, check for a new version whenever you download a new patch set.

  3. Define the appropriate OLAP metadata, as described in the Oracle9i OLAP Release 2 - User's Guide. This book is available on Oracle Technology Network (http://www.oracle.com/technology). You can also refer to the Help system for the OLAP management tool of Oracle Enterprise Manager, which is a tool that you use to create the metadata. As an alternative, you can create metadata using Oracle Warehouse Builder. If you do not define appropriate metadata, then you will not be able to create OLAP queries.

4.3.2.1.2 How to prepare Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition for use with Discoverer

To run against Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition, complete the following tasks:

  1. If you have not already done so, install Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition.

    Note: When you install the database client, be sure to install it into a separate Oracle home directory.

  2. Configure the database, following the configuration settings shown in Best Practices for Tabular Cube Aggregation and Query Operations. You must follow these configuration settings exactly to ensure that BI Beans works correctly and performs well. Because this document is updated as needed, check for a new version every time you download a new patch set. To access this document, download patch set 3760779.

  3. Define the appropriate OLAP metadata, as described in the Oracle OLAP Application Developer's Guide. This book is available on Oracle Technology Network (http://www.oracle.com/technology). If you do not define appropriate metadata, then you will not be able to create OLAP queries. Use one of the following tools to define the metadata:

    • The OLAP management tool of Oracle Enterprise Manager. See the Help system for Oracle Enterprise Manager for information.

    • OracleBI Warehouse Builder. See the OracleBI Warehouse Builder User's Guide for information.

    • Analytic Workspace Manager. See the Oracle OLAP Application Developer's Guide for information.

4.3.2.1.3 How to migrate an existing Discoverer Catalog to Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release 2

To migrate an existing Discoverer Catalog to Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release 2 (10.2.0.1 and higher), you must update a PL/SQL package on the database server by performing the following procedure:

  1. Install the patch as follows:

    1. Locate the d4o.jar in the following directory.

      BI_Home/sysman/webapps/emd/WEB-INF\lib
      
      
    2. Extract the bibcoreb.pls file from d4o.jar to a local directory. The jar has packing scope and will be extracted into the oracle/dss/persistence/storagemanager/bi/scripts directory.

  2. Apply the patch as follows:

    1. At the command prompt, enter:

      cd oracle/dss/persistence/storagemanager/bi/scripts
      
      
    2. Connect to the D4OSYS schema as the D4OSYS user with sqlplus.

    3. At the sqlplus prompt, enter:

      SQL> @bibcoreb.pls
      
      

      This step displays the following output:

      Package body created. 
      Commit complete.
      
      
  3. Ensure that the package is valid as follows:

    1. Open a sqlplus session

    2. Enter the following SQL commands:

      SQL> column OBJECT_NAME format a30; 
      SQL> column STATUS format a10; 
      SQL> select object_name, status from user_objects where object_name='BISM_CORE';
      
      

      The following display indicates that the patch has been applied successfully:

      OBJECT_NAME          STATUS
      ------------------------------------------------ 
      BISM_CORE                  VALID 
      BISM_CORE                  VALID
      
      

4.3.2.2 How to prepare for relational analysis

Before users can use Discoverer to query data from a relational data source, they must have access to an EUL that has been created (or upgraded) using either of the following:

  • the Discoverer EUL Command Line for Java (for more information, see the Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer EUL Command Line for Java User's Guide)

  • the version of Discoverer Administrator shipped on the Oracle Business Intelligence Tools 10g 10.1.2 CD-ROM/DVD (for more information, see the Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer Administration Guide)

Note that if you upgrade an EUL from Discoverer version 9.0.2 or 9.0.4 (with EUL version number 5.0.x):

  • the Discoverer version 10.1.2 EUL (with EUL version number 5.1.x) will overwrite (that is, destructively upgrade) the earlier EUL

  • existing users cannot use Discoverer Version 9.0.x to access the EUL either during the upgrade process or after the upgrade process is completed

Therefore, create a backup of the earlier EUL before upgrading.

For more information about EUL creation and upgrade, see the Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer Administration Guide.
