- Cannot get OBIEE installed successfully.
- The installer gets to the point where its launching the applications for the last time, and OBIS1 fails to launch.
- The installer then fails and you are forced to cancel.
- The error log for OBIS1 shows:
[2014-07-01T18:26:21.000-04:00] [OracleBIServerComponent] [ERROR:1]   [ecid: ] [tid: e9a8e720] Server start up failed: [nQSError: 43146] FMW_UPDATE_ROLE_AND_USER_REF_GUIDS inside NQSConfig.INI is set to Yes but the server failed to connect to BI Security Service.
- After this occurs, the installation is unusable. You can launch weblogic, and the bi_server1 managed server, but you can't launch opmnctl and the opmn managed processes. because OBIS won't launch and neither will OBIPS.
- OBIPS will fail with this error:
