It is worth reading the "System Requirements and Supported Platforms for Oracle® Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition" Guide before starting off.
|System Requirements and Supported Platforms|
I started the installation on HP-UX 11.23 Itanium 64 bit Server where there was already Discoverer 10.1.2.2 already running. The goal was to integrate BI Discoverer and BI EE.
During the setup OracleBI_HOME and OracleBIData_HOME has to be specified.
OracleBI_HOME is the BI Installation Directory
OracleBIData_HOME is the BI Data Directory
I opted for the Advanced option to Install the BI EE onto an exising 10g SOA Suite version 10.1.3.1.0 , so that I could get the BI EE Intergrated with the existing SSO Setup.
In the further installation screens , existing 10g SOA suite location and access details were supplied which enable the BI to get installed.
Further discussion : BI processes and the startup and shutdown procedure for them.
