Installing OBIEE 12c on Windows 10 – Part 2

This article is in continuation of the first part of the blog – ‘Installing OBIEE 12c on Windows 10 – Part 1’ where we discussed the pre-requisites for the installation. In this part, we will discuss the OBIEE 12c installation steps.

OBIEE 12c Installation can be divided into three parts.

  • WebLogic Server
  • OBIEE 12c
  • Deployment

WebLogic Server

There are some fundamental differences in OBIEE install compared to prior versions. In previous versions, WebLogic Server was included in OBIEE installation but in 12c release Fusion middleware (WebLogic server) needs to be installed first and then it needs to be followed with OBIEE installation.

Recently, I had to install OBIEE 12c in Windows 10 as part of a project. In this blog, I will share my experience in installing OBIEE 12c with Oracle 12c database. I will also try to compare my earlier experience of installing OBIEE 11g with Oracle Database 11g on Windows 8 OS.

In Part1 of the blog, I will discuss the pre-requisites we need to consider before installing OBIEE 12c.
