Hi,

I am trying to install OBIEE to evaluate it on my home computer. I have Oracle 10g and Oracle Application Server Installed but when i am prompted to provide the location of App server in the OBIEE installation i cant find the correct file. Have i installed App server in the wrong place, it says it should be in (Oracle_Home) i am not sure what this is. I just followed the default path for the installation.

What is the actual name of the file i should be providing?

Any help would be much appreciated

THanks

You have a complete iAS server installation on your home computer? Generally speaking, that's not recommended (too heavy for a normal PC).
If you don't need iAS for other purposes, I would recoomend to de-install it and during the installation of OBIEE choose the option to install OC4J with it. Much easier, both for you and your computer Wink

Hi, yes i have installed the complete App Server. Where is the option to install OC4J with OBIEE? When i try and install it i dont see anything like that option. I am using the latest version of OBIEE from the Oracle Website.

Thanks for your help, much appreciated

Hi again,

I have done what you suggested and unistalled App Server. Instead i have installed Sun Java Developer Kit which OBIEE says is necessary. When it asks for the location of this JDK in the OBIEE installation no matter what i give it just does not work. Would someone please be able to let me know what i am doing wrong. What link should i be giving here? I am very keen to evaluate this software.

THanks

Worked for me... so I'm not sure what the problem can be. Did you follow the installation manual? About the Java component, it states:

Java SDK 1.5.0 or later
CAUTION: Before you run the Oracle
Business Intelligence installer using
the Basic installation type, Java SDK
must be installed. Otherwise, key
components will fail to work.
NOTE: For all deployments of Oracle BI installed using
the Basic Installation Type on all operating systems.
Java must be installed on the same machine on which
you are installing Oracle Business Intelligence.
TIP: You need this information during the installation.
Make a note of the directory where Java is installed.
For example, /usr/j2sdk1.5.0_04.

By the way: this is another issue then you described earlier, again dealing with paths. Are you by any chance installing something that is not certified for the OS you're on? Are you aware of the fact that OBI EE is (as far as I'm aware of) not certified on Vista?

Thanks. Managed to install it in the end!

Would you be able to recomend a decent textbook which covers all the basics of Oracle?

Take a look at the "Getting Started" or the "Most Popular" sections of Oracle Documentation page (this is a link to 10g, but you may choose any other version if you wish). Bookmark Oracle Technology Network as a reference site (or even Tahiti).

Did you check the documentation LF mentioned?

BTW: it's better to create a new post stating the problem you have, instead of using an old post. Now it's a bit confusing (to me at least) what the problem is you have.
