            Could you pls let me know Linux user account not RCU account.

            In OBIEE10g installad using biadmin user.
            The user can i use again for 11g installation.

              Is this biadmin unix account or OBIEE one.?

              If you question is about unix account then yes you can install OBIEE using this account also but because the OBIEE 10g installation was already existing the ports 9704 port and 9703 port for BI Server and saw server will already be used by OBIEE 10g.When you install OBIEE 11g during installation use different ports like Analytics and BI Server , saw server an so on. You can keep the weblogic admin server on 7001 port if you previous OBIEE 10g was not using weblogic ..

              Refer to : http://shivabizint.wordpress.com/2010/10/08/install-obiee-11g-on-same-obiee-10g-server-with-new-ports-configuration/

              However this is not recommended by oracle and might not support if your planning for production, you will have to check with oracle on this.

              Hope this helps. Pls mark if it does.

                  No we need to have separate user for this
