We were informed of the following advice from Development:
"We [Development] are issuing a notice ( KM Doc ID 1558419.1 ) to customers who are installing BI Applications 184.108.40.206.1.
The installation of BI Applications 220.127.116.11.1 requires BI EE 18.104.22.168.0 to be installed as a pre-requisite. BI EE 22.214.171.124.0 can be installed either in
Software Only Mode (which requires WebLogic 10.3.6 to be installed first) or in
Enterprise Install Mode (which installs WebLogic 10.3.5). The installation of BI Applications 126.96.36.199.1 in the two install scenarios is documented in the Installation Guide.
However, we [Development] have observed that installations of BI Applications where BI EE has been installed in Software Only Mode with WLS 10.3.6 installed are erroring in either config BI or config Apps steps.
The errors manifest as hangs during these processes with failures to restart either the WLS Admin Server or the Managed Servers.
We are advising that all customers install BI Applications 188.8.131.52.1 using the installation flow with BI EE installed in Enterprise Install mode until further notice.
Details for this advised installation with WebLogic 10.3.6 is available in the “Install Alert” PDF document in:
Doc ID 1558419.1 - Notice for Install of Oracle BI Applications OBIA 184.108.40.206.1
So if you missed the alert Development sent out via MOS, then hopefully this gets to you, before you spend hours getting your installation with Software Only Mode to take off ground.If it reaches you later, then at least you now know what the installation problem was.
