Installing OBIEE 11.1.1.7.0 fails when starting the managed server – b1_server1

I'm trying to install OBIEE 11.1.1.7.0 and the managed OBIEE server – b1_server1 – was always failing causing the install to fail. After several attempts and double checking all the system parameters it was still continually getting stuck and unable to start the managed server. The only error I could find is this:

Stopping Derby Server...

One time when it was stuck trying to start the managed server, I decided to checked the entropy and noticed that it was low.

[root@beast-wls-au ~]# cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail
157
[root@beast-wls-au ~]# cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail
141
[root@beast-wls-au ~]# cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail
132
[root@beast-wls-au ~]# cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail
183
[root@beast-wls-au ~]# cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail
173
[root@beast-wls-au ~]# cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail
149

As soon as I ran rngd to increase entropy pool, the managed server started and continued to install.



[root@beast-wls-au ~]# rngd -r /dev/urandom -o /dev/random -f -t 1 &
[root@beast-wls-au ~]# 
[root@beast-wls-au ~]# 
[root@beast-wls-au ~]# cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail 
3526
[root@beast-wls-au ~]# cat /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail 
3605
[root@beast-wls-au ~]# 


I'll have to look into an entropy generator to avoid this issue in the future.

I installed OBIEE 11.1.1.7.0 on OEL6_u6 which sit inside OVS 3.3.2

Receiving 'startWebLogic.sh: 1: eval: Syntax error: Unterminated quoted string Process exited.' in JDev when starting the Integrated Weblogic Server.

I'm using Linux Mint 16, and when I try to start the Integrated Weblogic Server (Run -> Start Server Instance) in JDeveloper I get this error:

*** Using port 7101 ***
/home/steve/.jdeveloper/system11.1.1.6.38.62.29/DefaultDomain/bin/startWebLogic.sh
[waiting for the server to complete its initialization...]
/home/steve/.jdeveloper/system11.1.1.6.38.62.29/DefaultDomain/bin/startWebLogic.sh: 1: eval: Syntax error: Unterminated quoted string
Process exited.



To workaround this, I changed the sha-bang in startWebLogic.sh script to run bash. i.e. #!/bin/bash

You also need to do the same for stopWebLogic.sh script to stop instance later.

Failed to locate the Google Cloud Messaging for Android Library file named "gcm.jar". (oracle.adfmf.framework.dt.deploy.android.deployers.ValidatePreferencesDeployer)

Using JDev 11.1.2.4.0 I tried deploying a simple app to the emulator when I received the following error:

[02:46:21 PM] Deployment cancelled.
[02:46:21 PM] ----  Deployment incomplete  ----.
[02:46:21 PM] Failed to locate the Google Cloud Messaging for Android Library file named "gcm.jar". (oracle.adfmf.framework.dt.deploy.android.deployers.ValidatePreferencesDeployer)


I then installed GCM (which now seems to be deprecated) from Andriod SDK Manager and it worked.


How to create an OCI connection in Jdev - Database Navigator

Posted by Steve Racanovic | Posted in , | Posted on 12:02 PM

I have been trying to create an OCI connection in the database navigator using Jdev 11.1.2.3. Following these docs:

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E35521_01/user.111230/e17455/connect_work_databases.htm#OJDUG5131
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E35521_01/user.111230/e17455/connect_work_databases.htm#OJDUG2432

I'm on a 64 bit platform. So the first thing I do is set JDev to use 64bit JDK by editing the jdev.conf file i.e.
...
# Directive SetJavaHome is not required by default, except for the base
# install, since the launcher will determine the JAVA_HOME.  On Windows
# it looks in ..\..\jdk, on UNIX it first looks in ../../jdk. If no JDK
# is found there, it looks in the PATH.
#
#SetJavaHome D:\Oracle\Jdev\111230-prod\jdk160_24
SetJavaHome C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_39
...

I'll also add the parameters for JDBC driver and path to the OCI dll's.

 #For JDBC for OCI
AddVMOption -Doracle.jdbc.library=D:\Oracle\JDBC\instantclient\x86-64\11.1.0.7.0\ojdbc6.jar
AddNativeCodePath D:\Oracle\JDBC\instantclient\x86-64\11.1.0.7.0

When I start JDev, I receive a warning for the parameter AddNativeCodePath. And I'm unable to connect.

[sracanov@SRACANOV-AU D]$ jdev -verbose

It seems AddNativeCodePath is not recognised as a parameter. So I've comment out the line and start it by passing the library in that path environment variable.

After thoroughly checking the configuration files again and user details I was still in the same place. I eventually found the issue was in SELinux, and once I'd disable it, it worked again.

A Connection Example of JDBC THIN, THICK or SQLPLUS using Oracle Instant Client

First, download the instant client you which to use from - http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/features/instant-client/index-097480.html

The following steps demonstrate how to use it with simple connection.

1. I downloaded and extracted the following zips file;

- instantclient-basic-win-x86-64-11.1.0.7.0.zip
- instantclient-sqlplus-win-x86-64-11.1.0.7.0.zip

to: D:\Oracle\JDBC\instantclient\x86-64\11.1.0.7.0

[sracanov@SRACANOV-AU C]$

There are 2 crucial points here:
A) - I'am using JDK 1.6, so I must use ojdbc6.jar driver.
B) - I am using 64bit JDK. My platform is 64bit. As per the files downloaded *win-x86-64-11.1.0.7.0*. (If platform is 64bit, use 64bit JDK and Client. This needs to be correct for OCI to work. Due to dll's. Thin will run with 32bit).

My platform:


[sracanov@SRACANOV-AU C]$ systeminfo | findstr /B /C:"OS Name" /C:"System Type"
OS Name:                   Microsoft Windows 7 Professional
System Type:               x64-based PC

If you dont have the correct JDK as per your platform, you can download it from here - http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html

4. Now compile and run using JDBC THIN to connect.


[sracanov@SRACANOV-AU C]$ javac -cp .;D:\Oracle\JDBC\instantclient\x86-64\11.1.0.7.0\ojdbc6.jar JDBCInfo.java

- Thin works fine.

- OCI will run into dependent libraries issue on the platform. So you need to use the correct JDK.

- Set the envionment variable for your library on the system used. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/features/instant-client/index-100365.html

"Set the library loading path in your environment to the directory in Step 2 ("instantclient"). On many UNIX platforms, LD_LIBRARY_PATH is the appropriate environment variable. On Windows, PATH should be used."

Manually applying a JDBC patch for a Custom OC4J.

If you have followed doc 420303.1 to upgrade your JDBC driver and found this driver has issues where you need to apply a patch for it. You may want to follow this example to apply the one off patch.

Note: 


1. The jar command will update the driver jar with the patches. If your using another driver i.e. ojdbc5.jar, then ensure you grab the classes from the ojdbc5.jar directory i.e. ../../../patches/13403295/files/jdbc/lib/ojdbc5.jar/*

2. In server.xml we simply make the following change:
[oracle@beast config]$ diff server.xml server.xml.old.1
125c125
<               <code-source path="ojdbc14.p13403295.jar"/>
---
>               <code-source path="ojdbc14.jar"/>
[oracle@beast config]$ 
 
Once the oc4j instance has started up again, it will use the patched jar - ojdbc14.p13403295.jar. We can simply switch back to original if needed.
