OBIEE 11G Basic System Administration

with No Comments

First up, as an OBIEE 10g administrator, your administration duties were mainly performed either through the Administration tool, the web-based Presentation Server administration display screen, or through editing and enhancing documents in the filesystem. There were something similar to 700 or so settings options spread over multiple settings and tools data files, with some options (users and groups, for example) embedded in unrelated repositories (the RPD). OBIEE 11g addresses these by where possible moving administration and settings into Fusion Middleware Control (also referred to as Enterprise Manager).

To start off with something familiar, the Administration tool that was within OBIEE 10g is also present in 11g, is also Windows-based, and can be used to maintain the semantic model used by the BI Server. This tool is more or less the same, and has some improvements in conditions of dimensions handling, new data sources and the like.

10g which were used to control access to BI Publisher. There’s also AuthenticatedUser which is the same as found in the prior release. Just how do you create a new user in OBIEE 11g? For that you’ll need to start up the web-based WebLogic Server admin system. Security Realms from the Fusion Middleware Control menu.

Then from the set of security realms, select myrealm, and then from the Settings for myrealm dialog select Users and Groups, and then Users, from the tabs menu, You are then presented with a summary of existing users. Pressing the New button introduces a dialog where you can enter the user’s details, and you may also use the combined groups tab to define an organization for an individual, or assign an individual to a preexisting group. Security is quite a bit of a huge change in 11g and likewise, the Application is got by us Jobs establishing that you noticed in the Security Manager screenshot, which you then map to the groups in WebLogic.

I’ll cover security in a future posting, but also for now, this is how to define basic groupings and users. Another area that’s changed significantly where configuration files and metadata files are stored. BI Server, plus other components such as BI JavaHost and Publisher. Presentation Server, config files for the Presentation Server, plus cache files and temporary files for the BI Server. So where will be the key files that we are accustomed to working with? Now these are variables that you’re supposed to change only through Fusion Middleware Control. You can change them personally, but they’ll get overwritten by the WebLogic Server admin server when you restart WebLogic.

You can override this behavior so that changes you decide to do make to these specific variables don’t get overwritten, but you’ll have to keep in mind to duplicate changes to all or any the nodes (in OBIEE 11g, clustering is automatically allowed). Recognition need to be transformed by by hand upgrading this file still, but over time the plan is to move more and more parameters to management through Fusion Middleware Control. Out of this display, you can stop, start and restart all of the system components (BI Server, Presentation Server etc) via OPMN.

From this point, you can then click, on the Capacity Management, Diagnostics, Security or Deployment tabs to execute further maintenance. Diagnostics has two sub-tabs; Log Communications teaches you a cluster-wide view of most server warnings and errors, and Log Configuration enables you to limit how big is logs and what information gets contained in them. Edit and Lock Configuration button, which stops other people from attempting the same procedure at the same time. The default installation of OBIEE 11gR1 posseses an RPD called SampleAppLite, and I wish to replace this with my own RPD, developed offline previously. After pressing Lock and Edit Configuration, an “in progress” message arises, and you may start uploading your brand-new RPD document then.

Pressing Activate Changes will firstly bring up a note stating that the changes will be applied regardless of whether you close your internet browser window, and shortly afterwards, a second message is shown saving that the action is completed effectively. In the event that you check the NQSConfig Then.INI file, you should see your change written to the file.

At this aspect though, as with OBIEE 10g, you nevertheless still need to restart the BI Server because of this change to take effect. To do this, click on the Restart to Apply Recent Changes link at the top of the net page, which goes to the Overview page for the coreapplication system components in Fusion Middleware Control.
