for which question are you looking out for answers? I see the subject and content are different. is it for biplatform keep locking or you want to clone obiee on another machine?
make sure you are clear with your postings
Thanks for prompt response.
I am trying to clone an OBIEE 220.127.116.11 production server to a different machine (with identical specification) on Windows 2008 R2 Standard edition.
When I take a backup of some folders suggested in official documentation such as:
the BI on the clone machine gives me some errors such as the one mentioned above "biplatform account locked", the account of DEV_BIPLATFORM is kept locking .
Besides, it seems some very important folders or files are missing. Now, my question, which folders and files should be copied to the clone machine to have a fully functional and identical BI running smoothly ?
