Oracle Business Intelligence 11g installation guide (Linux)


This guide shows step by step how to install OBIEE on Linux platform. But I've installed OBIEE to multiple Linux, Solaris, AIX and Windows servers, and can say that the process does not have significant differences in any other Unix or even Windows platforms.
