Oracle BI 12c - file locations

by Antony Heljula

For those who have recently upgraded to Oracle BI 12c, things have moved around a bit! Here are some useful file locations in case it helps:

BI Tools (e.g. data-model-cmd.sh, start.sh, stop.sh, status.sh):
[home]/user_projects/domains/bi/bitools/bin

TNSNAMES file (to configure Oracle db connections):
[home]/user_projects/domains/bi/config/fmwconfig/bienv/core/tnsnames.ora

Weblogic scripting tool (wlst.sh)
[home]/oracle_common/common/bin

Log files (for BI system and weblogic servers):
[home]/user_projects/domains/bi/servers

BI Catalog:
[home]/user_projects/domains/bi/bidata/service_instances/ssi/metadata/content/catalog

Live RPD:
[home]/user_projects/domains/bi/bidata/service_instances/ssi/metadata/datamodel/customizations

NOTE: You need to use data-model-cmd.sh to download the live RPD

Weblogic configuration:
[home]/user_projects/domains/bi/config

FMW Configuration:[home]/user_projects/domains/bi/config/fmwconfig

BI System configuration (instanceconfg.xml etc):
[home]/user_projects/domains/bi/config/fmwconfig/biconfig

Examples:

Presentation Services configuration: .../biconfig/OBIPS/instanceconfig.xml
BI Server configuration: .../biconfig/OBIS/NQSConfig.INI

BI Publisher Configuration:
[home]/user_projects/domains/bi/bidata/components/bipublisher/repository/Admin/Configuration/xmlp-server-config.xml
