I had just build a new development instance from scratch.
Q1) I am getting database connnection error on the Dashboard and when i tried to update row count from physical layer it also throws me an error, as i test i tried to import but i also got an error " The connection has failed", i am able to connect thru SQL Developer. Where does OBIEE 11g look for the tnsnames.ora file.
Q2.) Where and what setting do i need to so that i can add the users in the application roles by searching them in the EM, means the LDAP users. I had gone thru most of the stuff in the web but could not get thru.
Ans 1. This is one of the most commonly asked questions on the Forum. I hope you'd search through available posts on the Forum before creating a new discussion. In any case, this might help: http://123obi.com/2011/03/error-the-connection-has-failed-in-obiee-11g/
Ans 2. Have you set up the integration with the LDAP provider or are you looking for help with that too? These should help:
