OBIEE 11.1.1 - Factors that caused the Presentation Server to take a very long time to start

1. The size of the repository and web catalog might affect the start up times of the services. Remove any obsolete items from the repository and web catalog. Run the process of validating the catalog as per documentation.

2. If logging was enable to the TRACE (finest). This caused the Presentation Server to take a very long time to start (15 minutes) and in turn cause OPMN to timeout which threw an error in Enterprise Manager

1.Navigate via Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control > coreapplication > Diagnostics tab: Log Configuration sub-tab
2.Press Lock And Edit Configuration
3.Set 'Trace' to 'OFF'
4.Click 'Apply'
5.Click 'Activate Changes'
6.Click 'Restart to apply recent changes'.

OBIEE 11.1.1 - Important Guidelines for Validating the Catalog

Before you validate the catalog, keep the following guidelines into consideration:
  • When you turn on any validation of the catalog, all ACLs (that is, all privileges and every item's permissions) are "scrubbed," which means that dead accounts are removed from them and any changed items are written to disk. Therefore, even if simply create a report without fixing any broken items automatically, you might find that the catalog is still extensively "changed."
  • Do not validate the catalog in a clustered environment unless the entire cluster has been shut down.
