Issue - BI content server(11.1.1.1) not starting in obiee 11g:

Hello All,

BI content server(11.1.1.1) is not starting in obiee 11g after making OBIEE 11g services as windows service.
Services are starting when we do a Start BI Services from All Programs >> OBIEE. On the contrary, when we start from windows service "bi content server(11.1.1.1) not starting in obiee 11g" is not starting.

Can someone help me on this. In case if you need any more info, please let me know.

Thank you,
Bimal

    I am having the same issue. I use the script I used for 11.1.1.5 on Windows 64-bit, but apparently does not work the same for 11.1.1.6 on Win 64-bit

    I have resolved this issue in the scripts. If you need the scripts let me know and can email them to you.

    Hello,

    The issue you described correspondes with problems we encounter with the installation of OBIEE as a service. (OBIEE 11.1.6)
    If possible could you sent me the scripts you mentioned?

    Thanks,

    perhaps it's easier to share the specific change in script in this topic? I got the same problem so would be nice to see how this can be fixed.

    Below is the BI Script I used. Everything is in this script so no need to edit the installsvc file. Just edit the location/variables used as well as at the bottom change the name of the script and the log location. The BI_ORACLE_HOME variable needs to be set in the script.

    SETLOCAL

    set DOMAIN_NAME=bifoundation_domain
    set USERDOMAIN_HOME=D:\oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain
    set SERVER_NAME=bi_server1

    Call "D:\Oracle\Middleware\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\bin\setDomainEnv.cmd"

    echo The WebLogic Server wasn't found in directory %WL_HOME%\server.
    echo Please edit your script so that the WL_HOME variable points
    echo to the WebLogic installation directory.
    goto finish

    You have to define a new environment variable in Windows
    BI_ORACLE_HOME=<path_to_middleware>\ORACLE_BI1

    Regards

    Adding BI_ORACLE_HOME environment variable in Windows resolved issue for me. Thank you Franck
