In this blog, I will demonstrate use of FlexDeploy workflow to install binaries for Oracle BI 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52. You can use this workflow to install the same versions of Fusion Middleware Infrastructure as well. Files used in this blog post can be downloaded from OracleBI.7z. You can use Workflow XML included in download zip to create FlexDeploy Utility Workflow in your environment. You can alternatively just use shell scripts provided as well for installation.
You must install appropriate Java version on your Servers and save downloaded installer zip files on the servers as well. You can keep downloaded zip files in shared filesystem as well. Keep in mind that if you have multiple Nodes in your domain, FlexDeploy will install this on all Nodes that are included.
Let’s first look at steps involved in the FlexDeploy workflow. You can see all details once you open Workflow in your environment.
- Create response file. Install commands require response files for silent installation.
- Run Installer for Fusion Middleware Infrastructure. Unzip downloaded zip first and run Java command using response files.
- Run Installer for Oracle BI. This is done by using file included in first zip file.

Now, users can request installation using FlexDeploy Utility Project. Here is the sample request form.
As you can see, you can request install in specific folder, for specific version.
I will blog about creation of Domain in next blog entry. Eventually once you have the OBIEE environment you can use FlexDeploy to further automate build and deploy process. See Oracle Business Intelligence Migration with FlexDeploy – Flexibility and Choice.
