If you are an existing Exalytics customer and have manually installed the software prior to the availability of the Exalytics Domain Management Utility, you can register any existing software installations by using the Exalytics Domain Management Utility. After you register an existing installation you can use the utility to manage the installation. See Managing Exalytics Domains.
To register an existing software installation, you must have upgraded to Oracle Exalytics Release 2.
Before you can register an existing installation, ensure that you are running Oracle Business Intelligence 18.104.22.168.x.
When you run the Exalytics Domain Management Utility to list the domains on the Exalytics Machine, the registered installation is displayed as "Primary node (Registered Exalytics Domain)".
To register existing software installations on an Exalytics domain:
Log in to the Exalytics Machine as the user "oracle" or as the new user you created. See Creating a Password on the Operating System.
To register an existing installation, enter the following command:
/opt/exalytics/bin/exalytics-domain-management.sh --action=register_existing_domain --input=<location and name of the input file> --domain=<new_domain_name>
For example, to register an existing installation as menlo2, enter the following command:
/opt/exalytics/bin/exalytics-domain-management.sh --action=register_existing_domain --input=/home/oracle/Installers/input.properties --domain=menlo2
When prompted by the utility, perform the following actions:
Enter the location of the following existing directories:
Oracle BI Home
Oracle BI Instance
Is TimesTen installed on the domain? Please enter [1-2].
If you select 1 (Yes), enter the existing TimesTen instance name and the existing TimesTen installation directory location.
Enter the user name and password for the Oracle WebLogic Server administrator.
Choose whether you want to restart the domain.
If you choose "Yes" to restart the domain, the utility stops and restarts all the processes on the new domain and registers the installation on the new domain.
To verify that the existing installation is listed as a domain, enter the following command:
/opt/exalytics/bin/exalytics-domain-management.sh --action=list_domains --input=/home/oracle/input.properties
The report displays the existing installation as a registered exalytics domain on the Exalytics Machine. The output looks similar to the following:
