OBIEE 12c NQSServer.exe Stopped Working

What a crazy error! I’ve installed this millions of times and I had no idea why I’m getting this error now. I really don’t want to go through this problem since I don’t know where to head at all. Let me google it for you really did help!

These are the kind of screens you get. Like a virus and keeps popping up!

Thanks to Guillaume again!!!

Modified a bit of his code and everything worked fine! I don’t even want to understand why this is happening. If you do, please visit Guillaume’s blog here! Remember to thank him! I’ll do that now!!! LOL! He was right, I had a whole bunch of EPM… Talk about incompatible Oracle stuff!

Create a startup.bat on the desktop with the following:

set PATH=C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem
call “C:\Oracle\Middleware\Oracle_Home\user_projects\domains\bi\bitools\bin\start.cmd”

Up and running! Thanks Bruv!

OBIEE Setting Agent to Email the Entire Dashboard

A reader recently requested to see if I could write up a tutorial on emailing OBIEE dashboards in PDF format?

To start off, you will need to create a New Agent.

In General Tab, you will first set the priority of this email. The priority of this delivery can be set to High, Normal, Low. The priority works with the delivery profile for a user to determine the destination for delivery content of different priorities.

Important Note on OBIEE 12c Visual Analyzer (Data Visualization) Security Settings

In OBIEE 12c, Oracle highly recommends to use Fusion Middleware Security Model.

One of the limitations in using initialization blocks is that Data Visualization doesn’t authenticate against init blocks.

Another important note is when migrating to FMW Security, users will not be able to login because the accounts were created in the Web Catalog with initialization blocks are not valid any more. When migrating, you will need to clean up the init block users form the Web Catalog and new valid accounts can then be created.

The below script will remove all the init block users from the Web Catalog cache.
Download Script


To run the script, copy it over to a server and execute it. Script will prompt the Administrator to enter the catalog path.
