Hi

We have just installed OBIEE and OBI Applications in Linux. I understand some of the components are not avialable in Linux and I am not sure what are those.

Are these the only two components not available in Linux and I have to install in Windows and connect to Linux.

1.BI Administrator
2. DAC Admininstrator.

IF so can i install them in my desktop and how do I set them to connect to the Linux server

Thanks

    Yes mainly DAC client is windows only and so it the BI Admin tool.

    You can connect BI admin tool to the BI server on the Linux by setting an ODBC connection of type BI server on your desktop.

    Likewise, when you follow the DAC installation instructions, you need some Informatica components on the DAC client PC.
    So generally you should install DAC and Informatica clients on same box while DAC and Informatica server can be on Linux.

    Actually DAC client works perfectly on Linux, but it is not supported.

    We are installing these to test Financial Analytics. There are some steps ( listed ) in the installation.

    Section 4.15, "Configuring Relational Connections in Informatica Workflow
    Manager"
    Section 4.16, "Configuring the SiebelUnicodeDB Custom Property"
    Section 4.17, "Setting Up DAC to Receive Email Notification"
    Section 4.18, "Additional Configuration Tasks"

    Are these mandatory for our case. OR can we skip some of them.

    Thanks in Advance

    4.16 is mandatory for unicode db setting
    Section 4.17, "Setting Up DAC to Receive Email Notification is not required

    Thanks for your quick reply. I would go ahead and perform all the steps except 4.17 and update if it works or not.

    Thanks again.

    I am creating connection from PowerCenter client to the OLTP and OLAP. For OLTP ( Oracle EBS Applicaitons ) , do I use APPS user for connecting.

    Now we are configuring the BI Applications before running full load of ETL. We are trying to do the steps 3.1.1 (How to Configure Initial Extract Date) through 3.2.2.5 (How to Configure Country Codes). But none of them is editable. IS it okay to skip these steps and just do step 5 (Configuring Oracle Financial Analytics)

    Thanks

    you can skip them for the first pass, you will extract the whole historical data. If your country is USA, then you will be fine,

    you can make changes to the copy of the original containers for ETL.
