OBIEE 11G and 12C Starting/Stopping Servers


The procedures reviewed in this blog, can be easily used by both OBIEE administrators and users for starting and stopping servers in Unix/Linux Environments. The step by step approach will help OBIEE users to understand the main differences in process we have performed in previous versions of 11G and latest version of 12C.


Introduction:

In this blog I will be discussing the procedures that OBIEE administrators follow for starting and stopping  servers for both OBIEE 11G and OBIEE 12C versions under Unix/Linux environments. The step by step approach will help OBIEE users to understand the main differences in process we have performed in previous versions of 11G and latest version of 12C. You will also see how Oracle came with its latest changes has made Startup/Shutdown servers approach much easier in OBIEE 12C.

Let’s begin with the steps for the OBIEE11G Application Start Services Process:

  • To Start Weblogic server go to path: Middleware Home <MW_HOME>/user_projects/domains/bifoundation_domain/bin and execute script ./startWebLogic.sh (space) & or we can start through nohup with below syntax:

nohup ./startWebLogic.sh 2>&1 & 

 Set up the “Environment” and “Node Manager”. Before going to start Managed server follow the following path: Middleware Home <MW_HOME>/wlserver_10.3/server/bin 

  1. For setting the Environment use the following syntax

./setWLSEnv.sh

Once the environment is set, the following message will appear “Your Environment has been set” 

  1. Use the following syntax for setting the Node Manager

./startNodeManager.sh (space) &

Once the node manager is up it shows the following message “Secure Socket Listener started on port No” message.

2. From here we need to start Admin and Managed server simultaneously. This we can achieve by going to Console Url:- http://localhost:7001/console

  • Through Console: select Environments->Servers->Control->check the servers->start

3. Start OPMN services:
Go to Path: Middleware Home <MW_HOME>/instances/instance1/bin
Enter syntax:  ./opmnctl (space) startall
To check the component enter: ./opmnctl status. All the services should show “status as Alive” 

OBIEE11G Application Stop Services Process:

1. Go to Path : Middleware Home <MW_HOME>/instances/instance1/bin
Enter syntax:  ./opmnctl (space) stopall
To check the component enter: ./opmnctl status. All the services will be down.

2. Stop Managed and Admin server with one step, by going to Console Url:- http://localhost:7001/console

Through Console: go to Environments->Servers->Control->check the servers->shutdown->force shutdown.

 Through above process we can Start/Stop OBIEE11G Services.

OBIEE12C Application Start/Stop Services Process:

The traditional Oracle OBIEE 11G format has changed and Oracle OBIEE12C is now following the Start/Stop Services format outlined below. This is much easier and requires less effort for an OBIEE 12C administrator as well as admin privileged OBIEE users in maintaining a server’s good health within OBIEE12C application servers and services.

Let’s take a look at the process we would be following in OBIEE 12C. 

Services Startup: The path is given below:

Oracle Home
<ORACLE_HOME>/user_projects/domains/BIDomain/bitools/bin

To startup OBIEE12C Services: enter command “./start.sh” 

Shutdown Process: Follow the path given below: 

Oracle Home
<ORACLE_HOME>/user_projects/domains/BIDomain/bitools/bin

To Shutdown OBIEE12C Services: enter “./stop.sh” command. 

Status Process: Follow the below path

Oracle Home <ORACLE_HOME >/user_projects/domains/BIDomain/bitools/bin 

To get the status of OBIEE12C Services: enter “./status.sh” command. 

Conclusion:

The procedures reviewed in this blog, can be easily used by both OBIEE administrators and users for starting and stopping servers in Unix/Linux Environments. I have found that the steps I have outlined come in handy when the users or administrators want to upgrade their existing versions of the OBIEE 11G environment to the latest OBIEE 12C.
