OBIEE 12c multiple instances

by Paul Cannon on 25th July 2016 2 comments

A question I’ve been asked a number of times recently is can OBIEE 12c have multiple instances running from a single installation (aka multi-tenancy).

The short answer is no. The first releases of OBIEE 12c do not support multiple instances, only a single instance is permitted.

the following two documents on metalink confirm this:

However you can have multiple installations of OBIEE running on the same server, but they need to be completely separate installations with their own configurations – different Oracle Homes, different port numbers and separate RPD/Catalog/Security and different scripts to start/stop/manage them.

    Hi James, Did you try multiple OBIEE 12c installations in the same linux server. Was the performance ok? Not sure of how many cores in your linux server
