    OBIEE Licensing

    2740111

      OBIEE - we have done nothing more than install OBIEE 11.1.1.7  OBIEE 11g.

       

      I am new to OBIEE.

       

      How could I prove that we have not connected this OBIEE installation to any other databases. in this case we will be working with an Oracle EBS R12.2.4 Instance?

       

      As demonstrated below we have no configured RPD files, no NQSConfig.INI

      -bash-3.2$ cd /u01/app/oracle/product/obiee/mwhome/instances/instance1/OracleBIServerComponent/coreapplication_obis1

      --bash-3.2$ ls   ------RPD Directory is empty.

      --bash-3.2$

       

      If our OBIEE system was configured to access a production system we would also have an instanceconfig.xml file in the below directory.

      From the screen output below we have no instance configuration file.

      -bash-3.2$ cd /u01/app/oracle/product/obiee/mwhome/instances/instance1/OracleBIPresentationServicesComponent/coreapplication_obips1

      -bash-3.2$ ls

        

       

      Thanks,

          Your question is not clear. The title ("OBIEE Licensing") implies you have a concern about that, but you don't articulate it in your question.

          What exactly are you wanting to know?

            You are checking the wrong directory. The instanceconfig.xml will be in here \Middleware\instances\instance1\config\OracleBIPresentationServicesComponent\coreapplication_obips1

             

            and nqsconfig.ini will be in here Middleware\instances\instance1\config\OracleBIServerComponent\coreapplication_obis1

             

            But what is that your are trying to prove here. When you say about licensing? Do you want to prove Oracle that you bought license from them, and did the install of OBIEE and now you want a refund for not using OBIEE at all even after install?

             

            As its not clear from your subject and body its hard to say/suggest as what you are trying to prove/establish

              I am trying to demonstrate that we have not configured OBIEE against any system, in this case an Oracle EBS system.

                Thank you for the directory information.

                 

                /u01/app/oracle/product/obiee/mwhome/instances/instance1/config/OracleBIServerComponent/coreapplication_obis1

                logconfig.xml              NQSConfig.INI             logconfig.xml.bak        

                 

                /u01/app/oracle/product/obiee/mwhome/instances/instance1/config/OracleBIPresentationServicesComponent/coreapplication_obips1

                instanceconfig.xml

                  Why?


                  It's a piece of cake to delete a bunch of config files. Their absence proves nothing.
