Important Note on Java Version used in OBIEE

Hi Friends ,


This a note for those of you who are using Java 6 and OBIEE.

https://community.qualys.com/blogs/laws-of-vulnerabilities/2013/08/26/java-6-0-day-exploit-in-the-wild

Abstract of the above article is java 6 is no longer safe and is vulnerable


If you did  Enterprise Installation of OBIEE, it comes with java 6 version and Weblogic 10.3.5.

Important note here is web logic server  10.3.5 is not compatible  with JDK 7( Reference : oracle certification matrix). Only web logic server 10.3.6 + can use java 7.

Sol:



Weblogic Server 10.3.6 with OBIEE 11.1.1.7.x and JDK 1.7.0_07+ is a certified combination 

 First upgrade to WLS 10.3.6 and the upgrade then to the latest JDK 1.7.0_07+.

 For more specific questions relevant to your environment , always raise an SR with oracle and take their opinion before doing any upgrades....

Thanks
Venkat

Agent Failed : nQSError: 77006

Hi Friends,

Today I cam across an error in Agents ( OBIEE 11.1.17.1) when I try to deliver a report of 18.1 MB size to users as excel attachment.

Error :

[nQSError: 77006] Oracle BI Presentation Server Error: A fatal error occurred while processing the request. The server responded with: A fatal error occurred while processing the request. The server responded with: com.siebel.analytics.utils.InputStreamWithLimit$ReadOverTheLimitException.
Error Codes: AGEGTYVF
Location: saw.rpc.mis.read, saw.subsystem.portal.pdf, saw.delivers.rpc.getDeviceContent, saw.rpc.server.responder, saw.rpc.server, saw.rpc.server.handleConnection, saw.rpc.server.dispatch, saw.threadpool.socketrpcserver, saw.threads


Solution :

Go to

/u01/app/oracle/obiee117g/instances/instance1/config/OracleBIJavaHostComponent/coreapplication_obijh1

and edit the config.xml file



 Here limit is 8192 KB and I am trying to send 18534.4 KB.

First Thing to do for trouble shoot this issue is.... Change the 8192 to zero as  shown below.




 and restart the services.... It will fix the issue...A value of '0' means that this limit is deactivated.

But , you would like to limit the maximum input size (in kilobytes) for requests that are sent to the JavaHost service, then gradually increase the parameter's value until you can export correctly.

Thanks
