we face the same issue and struggled lot to resolve the issue. Finally with the help of Oracle Support we were able to resolve the issue
Cause: In Linux it is using ipv6 network. OBIEE 18.104.22.168.0 support only ipv4.
ifconfig -a should show the below o/p
bond0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:17:A4:77:60:10
inet addr:10.0.0.1 Bcast:10.3.4.5 Mask:255.255.254.0
inet6 addr: fe80::217:a4ff:fe77:6010/64 Scope:Link
by default ipv6 configured and it causing BI Domain configuration failure. you can verify with the below command
netstat -tulpn | grep 9704
this should listen to only ipv4 IP. if it listens to IPv6 also then we will get this problem
I add this line to the /etc/sysctl.conf file:
I also did :
chkconfig ip6tables off
After doing both I rebooted the system and able to install the OBIEE succesfully.
