OBIEE 11G Basic System Administration

First up, as an OBIEE 10g administrator, your administration jobs were mostly performed either through the Administration tool, the web-based Presentation Server administration display, or through editing and enhancing files in the filesystem. There have been something like 700 or so configuration options spread over multiple tools and settings files, with some options groups and (users, for example) played in unrelated repositories (the RPD). OBIEE 11g addresses these by where possible moving administration and settings into Fusion Middleware Control (generally known as Enterprise Manager).

To start off with something familiar, the Administration tool that was present in OBIEE 10g is present in 11g also, is also Windows-based, and is utilized to keep 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 that were used to manage usage of BI Publisher. There’s also AuthenticatedUser which is the same as found in the previous release. So how do you create a new user in OBIEE 11g? For you’ll need to begin up the web-based WebLogic Server admin system. Security Realms from the Fusion Middleware Control menu.

Then from the list of security realms, go for myrealm, and then from the Settings for myrealm dialog go for Users and Groups, and then Users, from the tabs menu, You are offered a list of existing users then. Pressing the New button introduces a dialog where you can enter the user’s details, and you can also use the combined groups tab to define an organization for the user, or assign an individual to a preexisting group. Security is quite a little of a huge change in 11g and in addition, the application form is experienced by us Functions setting that you saw in the Security Supervisor screenshot, which you then map to the organizations in WebLogic.

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

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

From this aspect, you can click then, on the Capacity Management, Diagnostics, Deployment, or Security tabs to execute further maintenance. Diagnostics has two sub-tabs; Log Text messages teaches you a cluster-wide view of most server warnings and mistakes, and Log Settings allows the scale is limited by you of logs and what information gets included in them. Edit and Lock Configuration button, which stops anyone else from attempting the same procedure at the same time. The default installation of OBIEE 11gR1 comes with an RPD called SampleAppLite, and I want to replace this with my own RPD, developed offline previously. After pressing Edit and Lock Configuration, an “in progress” message comes up, and you may start uploading your new RPD document then.

Pressing Activate Changes will firstly bring up a note stating that the changes will be employed whether or not you close your browser window, and afterwards shortly, another message is shown saving that the action is completed successfully. In the event that you check the NQSConfig Then.INI file, you should see your change written to the file.

At this point though, much like OBIEE 10g, you nevertheless still need to restart the BI Server for this change to consider effect. To do this, go through the Restart to use Recent Changes link near the top of the web page, which goes to the Overview page for the core application system components in Fusion Middleware Control.
