Art of BI: Oracle BI Apps 7.9.6.3 on Simple Install

It is possible to install Oracle BI Apps 7.9.6.3 on the Oracle BI 11g platform which has been installed using the “Simple” installation feature.  Although this is in no way recommended for a production or even a real development or testing environment it can be helpful if setting up a simple demonstration environment.

When attempting this type of configuration, the Oracle BI Apps installer will hesitate during the installation process if the WebLogic Node Manager has not been started.  So, before kicking off an Oracle BI Apps installation on a “Simple” installation Oracle BI 11g environment, make sure the Node Manager  Windows service has been started and you’ll be good to go.
