OBIEE Server Administration
BIEE Developers tend to make smaller changes in rpd file and unit test the same, hence starting the whole of BI Server process (Web logic Server + BI Server) is a time consuming process.
OBIEE Server Administration can be done in a quick and simple way using the “opmnctl” command line utility. This is mainly for developers and not for administrators.
Steps to make a rpd change and load it to BI Server for testing:
Make changes in the rpd file
Go to D:\OBIEE11G\instances\instance1\config\OracleBIServerComponent\coreapplication_obis1
Open NQSConfig.INI and replace
Star = older.rpd, DEFAULT;
Star = new.rpd, DEFAULT;
Save the NQSConfig.INI and close
Start > run > type cmd
Go to the path D:\OBIEE11G\instances\instance1\bin
Issue the command “opmnctl status”, if any of the services is alive issue the command “opmnctl stopall” followed by “opmnctl startall” . This will start the services with the new rpd loaded onto the BI Server.
If the “opmnctl status” shows as stopped then just issue “opmnctl startall” and this will start all the BI Services.
