Symptoms

New install of OBIEE 11.1.1.9.0.

We are trying to run config.sh on OBIEE 11.1.1.9.0 and we are receiving this error when it tries to create the domain:

oracle.as.provisioning.exception.ASProvWorkflowException: Unrecognized option: -
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

at oracle.as.provisioning.weblogic.ASDomain._createDomain(ASDomain.java:2965)
at oracle.as.provisioning.weblogic.ASDomain.createDomain(ASDomain.java:2483)

Installer just hangs and go no farther. I'm using JRE 1.7_71 with Weblogic 10.3.6. Everything installed fine with no issues and the server has tons of storage and /tmp space.
