Based on some work we’ve been doing with our clients recently, we thought it would be helpful to write up Linux-based references to some (not all) common file paths that have changed between OBI11g and OBI12c and the basic new commands (Start/Stop/Status, RPD, Service Instance Backup) of Oracle BI 12c. Feel free to save this as a reference document for future Oracle BI 12c activities.
Some of the Basic Oracle BI 12c File Locations and Commands:
**Note these are based on a single application server environment not at scaled out environment.
/ORACLE_HOME /user_projects/domains/bi/bitools/bin ./stop.sh ./start.sh
With the above 2 commands, you can specifically start/ stop different services by utilizing the –i (lower case i) placing it directly after the cmd and then specifying the services you wish to start/stop
./stop.sh –i obis1,obisch1,obijh1,obiccs1,obips1 ./start.sh –i AdminServer,bi_server1,obis1,obips1 ./status.sh
./datamodel.sh downloadrpd -O /Directory/To/Save/OBI12c.rpd -SI ssi -U weblogic -P password
./datadmodel.sh uploadrpd -I /Directory/Of/Saved/OBI12c.rpd -SI ssi -U weblogic -P password
Common Log Files:
/ORACLE_HOME/user_projects/domains/bi/servers /AdminServer/logs/AdminServer.log /AdminServer/logs/AdminServer-diagnostic.log /AdminServer/logs/AdminServer.out /bi_server1/logs/bi_server1.log /bi_server1/logs/bi_server1-diagnostic.log /bi_server1/logs/bi_server1.out /OBIS1/logs/obis1-query.log /OBIS1/logs/obis1-diagnostic.log /OBIS1/logs/obis1.out /OBIPS1/logs/sawlog#.log /OBIPS1/logs/obips1.out
Common Configuration Files:
