    Multiple Instances of OBIEE

    890463
      Hi,

      I have installed OBIEE 11.1.1.6 on a Linux Machine.

      I have done the Enterprise Install when I installed it.

      I want to have another instance (instance2) on the same server and same machine.

      Would it be required to set up shared presentation services(!!) and repository in my case?

      Also, when I am trying to create another instance using Scale Out Option ,the system by default is taking the domain_home and the application_home ( I have only one domain home and application home)
      However I am getting an error that this folder is not empty. Any help on this please?

      Thanks,
      Akshatha

          Hi,

          Do u intend to have a master and slave setup wherein you have the same RPD and catalog in both the instances?
          If so, go for a vertical scale out.
          Do u intend to have multiple RPD's and Catalogs in the 2 instances?
          If so, run the config.bat file (in windows) there should be an equivalent file for linux.
          This file will configure the ports so that you have 2 independent instances, with different port numbers for EM, Console and Analytics.
          You can find this file under the path:
          <Install drive>:\Middleware_home\Oracle_BI1\bin

          Hope this helps !

          Thanks,

            Hi Vineeth,

            I intend to have multiple RPDs and Catalogs.

            I have tried with the procedure you mentioned.

            The config.sh file is present in the /Oracle_BI1/bin directory.

            However, as I have only one domain home and application home when I try to proceed with the installation, I am encountering error "Validation of application home location failed, the location specified already exists and is a non empty directory" for Domain Home and
            similar error for Application Home.

            Please help

                Thanks Vineeth.

                That worked! Actually I was trying with Scale Out Option. Looking at the screenshot I realised that it should have been " Create an new BI"

                Thanks for the input.
                Have a great day!
