OBIEE11g – RCU Metadata Source Change

Posted by Santosh Kumar Gidadmani on April 21, 2012

Before installing OBIEE11g, it is mandatory to install RCU because it creates repository metadata into the database. If you want to change the metadata repository to some other database due to various reasons, you can do it.

Scenario: System 1 – OBIEE11g and database (orcl1) with RCU metadata repository. System 2 – Database (orcl2). You can change the RCU repository metadata from one database to another database without impacting the current installed OBIEE11g environment.

Firstly, ensure the RCU Repository metadata is created in the new database.

Logon to Weblogic Server Admin Console
Click on services

Click on Data sources

Click on bip_datasource and click on connection pool

Click on “Lock & Edit” button

Provide the new database details like host name, instance and password as shown above.

Do the same for all four data sources (EMPsystemregistry, mds-owsm, rtd_datasource), save and activate changes.

Logon to Enterprise Manager

Go to Business intelligence folder – coreapplication – deployment – scheduler.

Provide the new database details, apply and activate the changes.

Restart the services and run the analysis (analytics).

– Santosh
