OBIEE 12c, by default, binds to all available interfaces (IPv4 and IPv6).
This document describes how to configure your OBIEE 12c environment to bind to a specific listen address [hostname or IP].
The typical or common use case scenarios are:
- Multiple installations on a single server [engineered or commodity] where IP:port conflicts are occurring and the OBIEE system components (obis, obips, obijh, obisch, obiccs) are not starting.
- VLAN tagging in use.
- You may have multiple network interface cards (NICs) of various capacity (1GB, 10GB, 40GB, etc.) on your server dedicated to a specific purpose.
(i.e. - Administrators access the machine via one IP address, applications are bound to a specific IP address, database access has a specific IP address.). You may also have a specific IP address for external network-attached storage. These may be physical or virtual network interfaces.
- You have changed your host IP address
- You have cloned (clone|cloning) the installation to a new host
- You need to configure a virtual IP address
- You need to configure a virtual hostname
This document is intended for OBIEE Administrators, System Administrators or anyone responsible for installing and configuring OBIEE 12c.
This document is intended to guide you to re-configure an existing installation that was performed on a machine with multiple network cards, multiple IP addresses configured, virtual IP addresses. This document is not an "end-to-end" transformation guide. This document may supplement the official documentation.
This document covers:
- The Node Manager listen address
- The Weblogic Administration Server listen address
- The Weblogic Managed Server listen address
- The OBIEE System Components (obis, obips, obijh, obisch, obiccs)
