    OBIEE 11g Installation for database 10g

    999608
      We want to evaluate OBIEE for our business. We want to install OBIEE 11g as stand-alone i.,e not integrated with any ERP, but we have our own data warehouse kind of system.
      We ran on Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release 10.2.0.5.0 - 64bi

      Questions:
      1) Can we install latest OBIEE 11g version on our database.
      2) Is ‘web logic ‘ server mandatory ?. If yes, do we need to buy separate license for web logic server?.
      3) Any suggestions?

          Weblogic is part of 11g, and you can install on your db for more info check these links

            Hi ,

            1) To run OBIEE 11g we would need to have Oracle 11gR2

            2) It automatically comes with BI 11G(no separate license)

            3) Get the latest version 11.1.6.0 and database Oracle 11g R2 and install it

              Satya Ranki Reddy:
              A. You have to install Oracle 11g Database.
              Wrong. This is just plain and utterly wrong. ALL OBIEE 11g versions are supported with an Oracle DB as of Oracle 10.2.0.4+.

              I suggest you actually check the System Requirements and Supported Platforms for Oracle Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition 11gR1 here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/bi-enterprise-edition/bi-11gr1certmatrix-166168.html

                You can absolutely install OBIEE 11g on 10g version, I have done that in the past. Oracle might have a minimum version requirement for database, without that they may not provide support, but just ignore that.

                Also, weblogic comes with 11g install files. For evaluation, you dont need any licenses. Just dont move to production.

                    Thank you Saichand, Christian, Kumar, Srini,

                    So, to summarize if I download OBIEE from below link and install in one of our Dev/Test environments should work.

                    Like I said earlier, We want to evaluate OBIEE for our business. We want to install OBIEE 11g as stand-alone i.,e not integrated with any ERP, but we have our own data warehouse kind of system – from where we want to create reports and play around.

                      Yes, Its a OBIEE (Stand alone) if you want to use pre-built reports/RPD which tightly integrates with ERP system you should install BIAPPS
