Business Intelligence Applications - Version 11.1.1.7.1 - Failure in Software Only Mode and Resolution


Installation Issues/Failures for Software Only Install for Business Intelligence Applications - Version 11.1.1.7.1
 
Failures during the installation of Business Intelligence Applications version 11.1.1.7.1
have been observed when WebLogic 10.3.6 and BI EE in Software Only mode are
installed. This document provides a notice to customers on how to successfully install BI
Applications 11.1.1.7.1 using the alternate installation scenario of BI EE installed in
Enterprise Install mode.

Details

The installation of BI Applications 11.1.1.7.1 requires BI EE 11.1.1.7.0 to be installed as
a pre-requisite. BI EE 11.1.1.7.0 can be installed either in Software Only Mode (which
requires WebLogic 10.3.6 to be installed first) or in Enterprise Install Mode (which
installs WebLogic 10.3.5). The installation of BI Applications 11.1.1.7.1 in the two install
scenarios is documented in the Installation Guide for Oracle Business Intelligence
Applications 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.7).
During the installation of BI Applications 11.1.1.7.1, failures during the steps to
configure BI and configure BI Applications have been observed in several environments
where WebLogic 10.3.6 and BI EE in Software Only mode have been installed. Oracle
Engineering is investigating the root cause of these failures.
The failures in the configuration processes are due to errors in restarting the WebLogic
Administration Server or the Managed Servers and manifest as hangs in the config BI or
config Apps steps.
While these failures are intermittent, the likelihood of occurrence in the installation
scenario where Weblogic 10.3.6 and BI EE in Software Only mode have been installed is
high.
Therefore customers are advised to install BI Applications using the
installation flow with BI EE installed in Enterprise Install mode until further
notice.

High Level Steps to Install Business Intelligence Applications - Version 11.1.1.7.1
 
The high-level steps for the installation of BI Applications with BI EE installed in
Enterprise Install mode are:
 
1. Install BI EE 11.1.7.0 in Enterprise Only mode. This mode installs Weblogic
10.3.5 and configures the BI Domain
 
2. Install ODI 11.1.1.7.0
 
3. Install SOA 11.1.1.7.0 (if deploying Indirect Spend Planning)
 
4. Install BI Applications 11.1.1.7.1
 
5. Apply FMW Platform Patches
 
6. Configure BI Applications (run configApps)
 
7. Upgrade to WebLogic 10.3.6

For detailed information on the installation, refer to Chapter 3 “Installing and Setting Up
Oracle BI Applications and Indirect Spend Planning” in the Installation Guide for Oracle
Business Intelligence Applications 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.7).

  1. Hi Pravin,
    Can i know from where we can download the upgrade for Weblogic 10.3.5.0 to 10.3.6.0.?
    From Oracle Official Site, they require support identifier for that.. So, is there any other source for that??

    Thanks in advance.
