                Hi RM,

                Thanks for the reply. I got a link to download 11.1.1.6

                http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/bi-enterprise-edition/downloads/bi-downloads-1525270.html

                In that link i found the below like
                Oracle Business Intelligence, v. 11.1.1.6.0
                 
                - for Microsoft Windows x86 (32-bit):
                Download Disk 1 (1of2) (1.4G) (cksum 2398089672)
                Download Disk 1 (2of2) (1.5G) (cksum 3513994538)
                Download Disk 2 (1of2) (1.7G) (cksum 2051171023)      
                Download Disk 2 (2of2) (975M) (cksum 2895515070)
                Download Disk 3 (1.2G) (cksum 746029236)
                Whether i need to download all the 5 disk files which of in size GB in order to upgrade from OBIEE 11.1.1.3 to 11.1.1.6
                (i.e) i need to perform only software install by clicking the disk 1 folder. Since i got this clue from the below link

                http://blog.guident.com/2012/03/upgrade-obiee-11-1-1-5-to-11-1-1-6/

                which says that,
                Step2: Run the Installer:
                
                    *
                      Go to Disk1 folder inside the installation package folder
                    *
                      Run the following
                
                ./runInstaller
                Skip Software Update, and then select Software Install Only
                Whether im going in the correct way.

                Thanks in advance.

                  Hi Mini,

                  yes you need to download all the 5 zip files and extract them in a same folder (folder should contain all the 5 disks) and then from disk 1 you can start with the installation by selecting the software only installation and then upgrade the RCU and then copy the rpd,catalog etc files onto the new version.. thats it you are good to go and yes you are following the right approach.

                  you can also follow this link for your reference http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23943_01/bi.1111/e16452/bi_plan.htm#BABECJJH

                    Hi RM,

                    Thanks now i have upgraded my WLS to 10.3.6 soon after applying the patch to my existing WLS 10.3.0.

                    I verfied that my WLS is upgraded successfully through referring to the below path
                    NEW8\wlserver_10.3\.product.properties and verify the below property.
                    where the WLS_PRODUCT_VERSION is set to 10.3.6.0.

                    Soon after that i need to run the product installer like you said in your previous reply..

                    But before applying that product installer sofware only install, i think that i need to set the Web Logic domain to configure with the updated version of JRockit JVM, since i got this by referring through the below link

                    http://www.rittmanmead.com/2011/05/in-place-upgrading-of-obiee-11-1-1-3-to-11-1-1-5/

                    In that how i can verify whether my weblogic domain is setted correctly to the updated jrockit JVM file, soon after performing those steps that mentioned in the above link

                    i done like the following in my cmd prompt like
                    C:\Documents and Settings>cd..
                    
                    C:\>\NEW8\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain\bin\setDomainEnv.cmd
                    SVR_GRP =
                    C:\NEW8\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain>set BEA_JAVA_HOME=C:\NEW8\jroc
                    kit_160_29_D1.2.0-10
                    
                    C:\NEW8\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain>if "%JAVA_VENDOR%"=="Oracle" (
                    
                    More?            set JAVA_HOME=%BEA_JAVA_HOME%
                    More? ) else (
                    More?            if "%JAVA_VENDOR%"=="Sun"
                    The syntax of the command is incorrect.
                    
                    C:\NEW8\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain>
                    ( set JAVA_HOME=%SUN_JAVA_HOME%
                    More?                       ) else (
                    else was unexpected at this time.
                    
                    C:\NEW8\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain>
                     set JAVA_VENDOR=Oracle
                    
                    C:\NEW8\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain>
                     set JAVA_HOME=C:\NEW8\jrockit_160_29_D1.2.0-10
                    
                    C:\NEW8\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain>                      )
                    C:\NEW8\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain>)
                    Whether now the Web logic domain is configured to use the JVM or how i can confirm with this step inorder to proceed to my further steps.

                    But it is returning error like "The syntax of the command is incorrect."

                      Hi RM,

                      Now i tempted to run the command without any spaces like the below in my cmd prompt
                      C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>C:\NEW8\user_projects\domains\bifoundati
                      on_domain\bin\setDomainEnv.cmd
                      SVR_GRP =
                      C:\NEW8\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain>set BEA_JAVA_HOME=C:\NEW8\jroc
                      kit_160_29_D1.2.0-10if "%JAVA_VENDOR%"=="Oracle" (set JAVA_HOME=%BEA_JAVA_HOME%)
                       else (if "%JAVA_VENDOR%"=="Sun"( set JAVA_HOME=%SUN_JAVA_HOME%) else (set JAVA_
                      VENDOR=Oracleset JAVA_HOME=C:\NEW8\jrockit_160_29_D1.2.0-10))
                      
                      C:\NEW8\user_projects\domains\bifoundation_domain>
                      Now it is not returning any error, but how i can confirm that my WLS domain is configured to use updated version of JRockit JVM.
