Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) 11g Silent Installation on Oracle Linux 6 and 7 (OL6 and OL7)

Work In Progress

This article demonstrates how to perform a silent installation of Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) 11g on Oracle Linux 6 and 7 (OL6 and OL7) using Oracle Database 12c Release 1 (12.1) for the repository created by the Repository Creation Utility (RCU).

Assumptions

To keep this article as brief as possible I'm going to make the following assumptions.

I don't work with ODI, but I do have to provide basic support of some infrastructure that runs it (database and WebLogic).

Downloads

There is a lot of software to download before you can begin. I've purposely not included the latest critical updates.

Response Files

The following response files are necessary for the silent installations shown below. The values you may need to amend are shown in bold.

Work In Progress

The following command creates a new ODI domain.

cd $MW_HOME/oracle_common/common/bin

./wlst.sh /u01/software/create_odi_domain.py

Make sure the "AdminServer" and "ODI_Server1" servers can start/stop without credentials by creating "boot.properties" files.

mkdir -p $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/AdminServer/security/
echo "username=weblogic" > $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/AdminServer/security/boot.properties
echo "password=Admin123" >> $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/AdminServer/security/boot.properties

mkdir -p $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/odi_server1/security/
cp $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/AdminServer/security/boot.properties $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/odi_server1/security/

Start the AdminServer. It's going to take a few minutes to start.

export MW_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/middleware
export WLS_HOME=$MW_HOME/wlserver_10.3
export WL_HOME=$WLS_HOME
export DOMAIN_HOME=$MW_HOME/user_projects/domains/odiDomain

export JAVA_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/jdk1.7.0_80
export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH

nohup $DOMAIN_HOME/bin/startWebLogic.sh > /dev/null 2>&1 &

Create a file called "set_odi_supervisor.py" in the "/u01/software" directory with the following contents. Remember to adjust the variables at the start of the script to suit your installation.

#!/usr/bin/python

print('Set variables.')
host_name = 'ol7-odi.localdomain'
admin_port = '7001'
admin_user = 'weblogic'
admin_password = 'Admin123'
domain_name = 'odiDomain'
supervisor_user = 'SUPERVISOR'
supervisor_password = 'SVPasswd1'

connect(admin_user,admin_password,'t3://' + host_name + ':' + admin_port)
createCred(map="oracle.odi.credmap", key=supervisor_user, user=supervisor_user, password=supervisor_password, desc="Key for Supervisor")
disconnect()
exit()

The following command creates a supervisor password.

cd $MW_HOME/oracle_common/common/bin

./wlst.sh /u01/software/set_odi_supervisor.py

The installation is now complete, but the agent definition must be created in the Master Repository, which must be done using the ODI Studio GUI tool. This can be done on the server using X, or from your client PC client, connecting to the repository database. The example in the next section is done using X on the server.

ODI Agent Config

If we started the "ODI_server1" managed server now we would see the following type of error in the "ODI_server1.log" file.

<BEA-149231> <Unable to set the activation state to true for the application "oraclediagent".
weblogic.application.ModuleException: ODI-1405: Agent OracleDIAgent start failure: the agent is not defined in the topology for master repository.

We have created the physical agent, but we need to create the agent in the Master Repository using the ODI Studio.

$MW_HOME/Oracle_ODI1/oracledi/client/odi.sh

Click the "Connect to Repository..." link.

ODI Studio

Click the "+" button.

ODI Studio

Enter the connection information and click the "Test" button. If successful, click the "OK" button.

ODI Studio

Enter a wallet password and click the "OK" button.

ODI Studio

The credentials should now be set, so click the "OK".

ODI Studio

Click on the "Topology" tab. Right-click on the "Agents" node and select the "New Agent" menu option.

ODI Studio

Set the agent name to "OracleDIAgent", not "OracleDIAgent1" that may be shown by default. Set the host (ol7-odi.localdomain) host and port (8001) values to be consistent with the physical agent definition in the domain. Click the "Save All" icon in the top toolbar.

ODI Studio

The agent will now be visible in the tree.

ODI Studio

Now the agent topology matches the physical agent definition in the domain, we can start the domain components as described below.

Startup/Shutdown

The database is started and stopped in the normal way.

export ORAENV_ASK=NO
export ORACLE_SID=repdevcdb
. oraenv
export ORAENV_ASK=YES

dbstart $ORACLE_HOME
dbshut $ORACLE_HOME

Make sure you have the environment set correctly.

export MW_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/middleware
export WLS_HOME=$MW_HOME/wlserver_10.3
export WL_HOME=$WLS_HOME
export DOMAIN_HOME=$MW_HOME/user_projects/domains/odiDomain
# Set to the appropriate JAVA_HOME.
export JAVA_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/jdk1.7.0_80
export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH

With then environment in place we can start, check the status and stop OBIEE using the following commands.

# Start
nohup $WLS_HOME/server/bin/startNodeManager.sh > /dev/null 2>&1 &
sleep 10
nohup $DOMAIN_HOME/bin/startWebLogic.sh > /dev/null 2>&1 &
sleep 120
nohup $DOMAIN_HOME/bin/startManagedWebLogic.sh odi_server1 > /dev/null 2>&1 &


# Stop
$DOMAIN_HOME/bin/stopManagedWebLogic.sh odi_server1
$DOMAIN_HOME/bin/stopWebLogic.sh

Check out the log files here.

tail -f $DOMAIN_HOME/nodemanager/nodemanager.log
tail -f $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/AdminServer/logs/AdminServer.log
tail -f $DOMAIN_HOME/servers/odi_server1/logs/odi_server1.log

ODI URLs

Once the domain is running the main URLs you will need on the server are as follows.

Domain Cleanup

During the process of working out the WLST build of the domain I had to recreate the domain several times. This is how I cleaned up between attempts.

# If the domain processed are running, stop them.
$DOMAIN_HOME/bin/stopManagedWebLogic.sh odi_server1
$DOMAIN_HOME/bin/stopWebLogic.sh

# Remove the domain entry in the "domain-registry.xml" file.
sed '/odiDomain/d' $MW_HOME/domain-registry.xml > $MW_HOME/domain-registry.xml2
mv $MW_HOME/domain-registry.xml2 $MW_HOME/domain-registry.xml

# Remove the domain and application files.
rm -Rf /u01/app/oracle/middleware/user_projects/domains/odiDomain
rm -Rf /u01/app/oracle/middleware/user_projects/applications/odiDomain

# Uninstall the repository using the RCU.
$MW_HOME/odi_rcu/rcuHome/bin/rcu -silent -dropRepository \
  -connectString ol7-odi.localdomain:1521/repdev -dbUser SYS -dbRole SYSDBA \
  -schemaPrefix ODIDEV -component ODI -component IAU \
  -component OPSS < /u01/software/odi_rcu_paramfile.txt

Now repeat the process from running the RCU onward.
