(Doc ID 1952016.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 12, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Exalytics Software - Version and later
Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to install OBIEE on an Exalytics Oracle Virtual Machine (OVM) server, the install fails at the configuration stage (step 14 of 15).
The error that occurs is:

Executing opmnctl start coreapplication_obisch1
 - error
  - opmnctl task failed
  - step executing: opmnctl start coreapplication_obisch1 failed
  - Configuration action 'Executing opmnctl start

The installation window was closed, and now cannot be restarted.
If the failed install is completely removed and a subsequent install is attempted, it again fails at the same point.

There is no firewall between the Exalytics (OBIEE server) environment and the repository database.
