New OBIEE 11.1.1.7 patches – IE10 compatibility

I haven’t done much OBIEE work lately; however, the OBIEE patch posts I have done in the past remain one of the most popular topics on my blog.  Since the release of 11.1.1.7.1, there have been two new patches released.

OBIEE 11.1.1.7.1.131017 released back in October of 2013.  There were a few notable new features:

There are eight component patches that are served by one patch number: 17530796.  Once these component patches have been applied, you may also apply patch 17220944 for the BI Mobile App Designer if it has not been previously installed.

Patch 17530796 includes the following:

  • Patch 16913445 – Oracle Business Intelligence Installer (BIINST)
  • Patch 17463314 – Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher (BIP)
  • Patch 17300417 – Enterprise Performance Management Components Installed from BI Installer 11.1.1.7.0 (BIFNDNEPM)
  • Patch 17463395 – Oracle Business Intelligence Server (BISERVER)
  • Patch 17463376 – Oracle Business Intelligence Presentation Services (BIPS)
  • Patch 17300045 – Oracle Real-Time Decisions (RTD)
  • Patch 16997936 – Oracle Business Intelligence ADF Components (BIADFCOMPS)
  • Patch 17463403 – Oracle Business Intelligence Platform Client Installers and MapViewer

In addition to the above patch, the Dynamic Monitoring Service patch 16569379 and of course, the BI Mobile App Designer patch 17220944.

Before getting too excited about applying 11.1.1.7.131017, on January 14, 2014, OBIEE 11.1.1.7.140114 was released as patch 17886497.  This patch may be applied to OBIEE 11.1.1.7.0 or 11.1.1.7.1.

There were no new features in this patch, although Oracle did fix a few bugs in some of the products since the prior patch.  Not all of the patches contained in 11.1.1.7.140114 are new, only the following products were actually changed for this patch:

  • Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher (BIP)
  • Oracle Business Intelligence Server (BISERVER)

  • Oracle Business Intelligence Presentation Services (BIPS)
  • Oracle Business Intelligence Platform Client Installers and MapViewer

Patch 17886497 includes the following patches:

  • Patch 16913445 – Oracle Business Intelligence Installer (BIINST)
  • Patch 17922352 – Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher (BIP)
  • Patch 17300417 – Enterprise Performance Management Components Installed from BI Installer 11.1.1.7.0 (BIFNDNEPM)
  • Patch 17922552 – Oracle Business Intelligence Server (BISERVER)
  • Patch 17922596 – Oracle Business Intelligence Presentation Services (BIPS)
  • Patch 17300045 – Oracle Real-Time Decisions (RTD)
  • Patch 16997936 – Oracle Business Intelligence ADF Components (BIADFCOMPS)
  • Patch 117922577 – Oracle Business Intelligence Platform Client Installers and MapViewer

In addition to the above patch, the Dynamic Monitoring Service patch 16569379 and of course, the BI Mobile App Designer patch 17220944 (both are the same as above).

As always, the best advice I can give for installing these patches is to read and follow the instructions in the README files that are included with each of the patches.  For these OBIEE patches, often the main patch download includes the instructions that should be applied for each of the patches contained within.
