OBIEE 11g Getting Started

After a long gap I am looking into OBIEE 11g. After completing Datacenter Migration Project and Database 11g Upgrade Project, I am now set to go for Fusion Middleware 11g Upgrade early next year.

But this December it is OBIEE 11g.
Early this year I created a OBIEE 10g Environment with BI Publisher 10g. But I see that there has been a lot(a lot) of enhancement done with OBIEE 11g.

As a preparation I created the Database that is required for the Repository. In OBIEE 11g we have to build a repository. I am building it on a 11g R1 database. I made a Oracle Home Cloning and created a database on it.

Oracle Home cloning is pretty simple.
1. Copy a healthy Oracle Home
2. Source the environment variables
3. Run the clone scripts

In three simple steps the Oracle Home is Ready and now it is the time for DBCA to take care of the rest in creating the database.

Between I have downloaded the following
- Repository Creation Utility.
- Softwares necessary for OBIEE 11g.

You can find more details here (this link might change in the future )

Will keep posting on the developments.
