Here is a crib-sheet on creating a new Presentation Catalog in OBI 11g.
The Oracle BI Server and WebLogic Server should be up and running.
- Stop the system component service for Presentation Services.
- Specify a new web catalog folder location (one that does not exist) for the catalog on the Repository tab of the Deployment main tab page in Fusion Middleware Control Enterprise Manager.
- Example: <INSTANCE_HOME>/…/catalogs/mynewcatalog
- Apply Changes.
- Activate Changes.
- Restart Presentation Services.
Upon restarting presentation services the new web catalog folder will be created for you automatically and be set as the active catalog.
