  12. Hello sir,

    Thank you for this detailed post on obiee software installation. I'm stuck at the creating domain step. I made sure that I have a static ip and then tried simple install several times. It is failing at the creating domain step. So, I've uninstalled everything and started doing software only installation and followed the exact same process listed in this blog and again same issues stuck at creating domain step. Any thoughts on what might have gone wrong. I'm using windows 2008R2 64 bit 4gb ram and oracle xe db. Thank you.

    1. Hi Srilatha,

      Plz make sure do u have any env. path like related if yest then try to remove it then delete user_project folrder then try to configure obiee11g

      INFO: CLASSPATH = .;C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\lib\ext\

      fore more refer my another blog

      still if it is not working then try to make sure u IP /loo-back adopter also send me u installation inventory log message.



  14. Hi All,

    If anyone getting issue one hangs on windows 7 please make sure

    In the CLASSPATH =.; C: \ Program Files (x86) \ QuickTime \ QTSystem \

    Delete C: \ Program Files (x86) \ QuickTime \ QTSystem \ can restart


  15. Hi Deva
    Thanks for the detailed instructions.I followed all your steps but I'm stuck at 0% creating domain . I have implemented the solutions you gave to the questions above , but still nothing is happening,

  16. configuration file ends with the following lines
    Creating a new AdminServer Object ...
    AdminServer port is 7001
    Starting the domain ...
    LOADING DLL : C:\Oracle\Middleware\Oracle_BI2\install\config\\StartUtil64.dll
    DEBUG : Loading DLL : C:\Oracle\Middleware\Oracle_BI2\install\config\\StartUtil64.dll
    DEBUG : Loaded DLL : C:\Oracle\Middleware\Oracle_BI2\install\config\\StartUtil64.dll

  17. Hi Deva- thanks for posting your steps. I am installing OBIEE on win 7 32 bit. Software only installation mode and I am running into the same problem as josy . Restarting Admin Server step - Step 11 in the configuration process has been problematic. The following is the last message and with that the Admin Server hangs forever. Can you suggest any solutions please?

    Starting AdminServer
    Starting the domain ...
    DEBUG : Loading DLL : C:/MyOra/Oracle_BI1/install/config/StartUtil.dll
    DEBUG : Loaded DLL : C:/MyOra/Oracle_BI1/install/config/StartUtil.dll
