Art of BI: OBIEE 11.1.1.5 Automatically Creates boot.properties File

By | In 11g, Art of BI | June 18th, 2011

In the latest release of Oracle BI 11g (11.1.1.5) the Oracle BI Development team has saved everyone a step and allowed the boot.properties file to get automatically created upon the first start of the Oracle BI Server (WLS Admin Server to be exact).  We previously described and showed how to create the boot.properties file in the post on how to Automate Weblogic to Avoid Prompt for Credentials at Start-up.  But now in the latest release this is no longer necessary from a Windows environment installation.

Once Oracle BI 11g has been installed on the machine simply run the Oracle BI Start up command.  The command prompt that starts the WLS Admin Server start up will prompt for the Administrator user’s credentials.  Once the credentials are entered the boot.properties file is automatically created in the proper location as described in the previous post.  Sweet!
