Install Advanced Analytics: Cannot find the path

Hello,  I am trying install the advanced analytics package through Start -> All Programs -> Oracle -> Install Advanced Analytics. Whenever I do it I get this error: When I go to the path manually and find the installing app manually C:\Program Files\Oracle Data Visualization Desktop -> Install advanced analytics, it yields the same message.Do you know what can cause it? Thank you 
One thing  to check would be if the following files exist?:C:\Program Files\Oracle Data Visualization Desktop\OracleBI1\modules\oracle.bi.dvdesktop.installer\rinstall.jarC:\Program Files\Oracle Data Visualization Desktop\OracleBI1\jdk\jre\bin\java
Thank you for your tip, Adam! Yes, there are the following files on place! Is there anything else I should check?  Thank you ahead 
Hi, Please take a look at this and see if it helps: Advanced Analytics Installation Fails  Regards,Juan Diego
Hi Julia, Have you already solved this problem? I have the same problem. The directories that Adam calls are just as common to me as well.And i have also installed R
If Windows 7 is installed, try the following.1. Start Command Prompt (Administrator privileges)2. C: \ Program Files \ Oracle Data Visualization Desktop \ install_advanced_analytics.cmd _payload_ C: \ Program Files \ Oracle Data Visualization Desktop
Thanks for your reply. I work with Windows 7, but your answer doesn't work: 
Hi, Looking at your screenshot you are missing the double quotes ("") needed in Windows when using commands with whitespaces (e.g. Program Files).Try executing: "C:\Program Files\Oracle Data Visualization Desktop\install_advanced_analytics.cmd"with the double quotes. Regards,Juan Diego
Hi, Could you please check if you have below message in your rinstall.log :                        "Could not connect to https://oss.oracle.com/ORD/ORD-3.1.1-win.zip using proxy" If yes, its your proxy settings. Clicking on advanced analytics downloads the required software (https://oss.oracle.com/ORD/ORD-3.1.1-win.zip ) and your proxy might be blocking that. All, you have to do is to get your network security team to unblock that. Regards,KK

Running multiple oracle istances with multiple users

Hi all,
I have a 2 node cluster with suncluster 3.2.
I run there more then one oracle istance. Each istance has its own user.
I realized that suncluster uses something connected to setuid bit of oracle binary file to run an istance.
For istance, when I try to modify a propriety of a SUNW.oracle_server resourse it tell me "Permissions incorrect for /opt/oracle/product/10.2/bin/oracle. s bit not set" and also when I try to enable the resourse so it could run the istance It says: "Using method 'run_setuid_prog' to execute start commands"
My problem is that If I set the s bit who tries to run oracle binary tries to execute it as oracle and not as the user owner of the istance.
Would it possible in any way to disable what is calls method 'run_setuid_prog'?
Thank You
How are you configuring the Sun Cluster Oracle resources to run with different users? Oracle is supposed to run as user oracle (or whatever you have named the Unix account). If you want different owners, then you need different Oracle installations. If you simply want to run the with different resource controls use the Solaris project binding.
If you modify the shell scripts, they become unsupported.
I think you hit it on the nail.
To manage resources I thought to use solaris project.
I configured the Resource_project_name of the SUNW.oracle_server resource binding it to a project name associated to a specific user.
At this point what is not clear to me is how suncluster manages this.
If I bind a SUNW.oracle_server resource to a project associated to user "goofy"...
-How do I have to configure datafiles permissions? Should they belong to oracle or to goofy?
-Will Suncluster run the istance using oracle or goofy? Will the processes belong to oracle or goofy?
Thank You
You can either set the resource group property RG_project_name or the resource property Resource_project_name to bind the objects to the project you want them to run under. The resource start method then takes care of starting the items under the right project.
See /opt/SUNWscor/oracle_server/bin/oracle_server_start
TASK_CMD="/usr/bin/newtask -p $RESOURCE_PROJECT_NAME"
su $ORACLE_OWNER -c "$TASK_CMD $BINDIR/oracle_server_manage \
startup $AUTO_END_BKP" \
So, if you want to see what the effect will be, try these commands manually first. :-)

Sun IDM Installation Automation

Hello-- We are attempting to automate the installation of the SUN Identity manager running on Windows 2003 , using SQL server 2000 & WebSphere.
.We are basically Websphere Admins and no IDM gurus hence seek some help from you.
The instructions we have give details about using the LH Setup command.,but I am more interested in automated installation. I am looking at options like setrepo and lh license to set the server repository and the license file etc.But out of options for importing data through the XML files.
If anyone has made such an attempt before or is aware of the know how,the help will be highly appreciated.
You can import the sample xml files the following way:
$WSHOME/bin/lh console - c "import init.xml"
The easiest way to import your custom xml files would be to create a file where each line is a path to the xml file. Afterwards execute:
$WSHOME/bin/lh console -c "source <the imports file>"
- Robin 
Thx for the response.I will definately try your solution and let you know if we can pull it off.
Once again Thanks a ton.
Sorry but before I can try your solution I have been mired with another issue part of the ongoing automation effort. This is a prior step I believe and it deals with setting up the repository.We are trying to set the Repository type as SQLServer and the driver to be JDBC. I am trying to use the setrepo command for this purpose (not exactly sure thats the right way)
lh setRepo -tSQLServer -ujdbc:microsoft:sqlserver://************:1433;DatabaseName=waveset;SelectMethod=Cursor -jcom.microsoft.jdbc.sqlserver.SQLServerDriver -Uwaveset -Pwaveset
When I try the solution I get the message
java.sql.SQLException: [Microsoft][SQLServer 2000 Driver for JDBC] Can't start a cloned connection while in manual transaction mode.
I had once tried to create the repository through lh setup and had provided the same parameters using the GUI,but cleared them later.
Also I have verified with the DBA that all open connection have been closed.Still this error persists.
Can anyone through some light on this?Am I going down the wrong lane?
Setting the database using the setrepo command is idd the way to go.
The connection url seems right to me, though I did notice a space in "SelectMethod" url parameter (between "o" and "d").
Perhaps it's ignoring your select method? (Default select method for JDBC sqlserver 2000 driver is direct, not cursor...)

OUD install basic question

Hello All, I know it is a basic question but i seem to have spent lot of time to find out how to move forward. I am trying to install OUD new version ( on a brand new SLES 11 server with following command... /home/jsmith/OUD/Disk1./runInstaller -jreLoc /home/jsmith/jdk1.6.0_22/jre but getting the DISPLAY error and not moving to next step.. Starting Oracle Universal Installer... Checking if CPU speed is above 300 MHz.    Actual 1200 MHz    PassedChecking Temp space: must be greater than 150 MB.   Actual 33205 MB    PassedChecking swap space: must be greater than 512 MB.   Actual 16370 MB    PassedChecking monitor: must be configured to display at least 256 colors    >>> Could not execute auto check for display colors using command /usr/bin/xdpyinfo.

Can anyone help me? Thanks
Hi there, I think that you can only install without GUI by using a responseFile.That's what i'm doing everytime for database. But you have to install once to record your answer or modify directly the responseFile template. And you have an option to configure the oud in client mode with --cli option as mentionned in :Setting Up the Directory Server by Using the CLI - Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle Unified Direct…
I am not even able to do the first install of the OUD software, after that only i should be able to install the Directory setup. Is there a way to install OUD software without GUI, i want to install in the command line. Thanks
Hello, You can run the installer in silent mode. Would https://blogs.oracle.com/sduloutr/entry/installing_oracle_unified_directory_inhelp ?Sylvain ------When closing a thread as answered remember to mark the correct and helpful posts to make it easier for others to find them
the instruction in the blog also says that i need to run GUI first and then i can be able to do silent install. I wonder why not i run the install in a command line rather GUI. I have more than 30+ servers and this is the first time i hear that installation has to be via GUI.. Your blog also says below... >>>>>>To run the installer in silent mode, either run it in GUI mode on your laptop or any system with a GUI<<<<<
GUI is not a must-have.I meant to say you need to produce a response file for the sileint install. This response file is usually produced/exported during a GUI install. Alternatively, you can write this response file by hand if you can't install OUD in GUI mode (e.g. on a VM or a laptop) Looks like that's what you have to do. The blog provides you with a response file template, so this should not be a big deal to adapt it to your needs. Sylvain ------When closing a thread as answered remember to mark the correct and helpful posts to make it easier for others to find them
ok, finally i was able to install with GUI options by doing other settings like DISPLAY, enabling tunneling, running X-window  etc... I wonder  why the install has a default option via GUI install... it would be very simple just a CLI install. Anyway, this is my thoughts. thanks for your help

Accessing local file System on JCS-SaaS

Hi I am trying to access the local file system of my JCS-SaaS cloud with below two options. But it is not working either way. Can you please give me any ideas to move my local file to JCS domain.  Doc Reference: http://docs.oracle.com/cloud/latest/javacs_gs/CSJSU/GUID-1452AA1C-5B32-4C68-845E-A7802344A523.htm#CSJSU7273 1) Using File BrowserI have deployed the sample project given with Java Cloud -SaaS extension SDK. I am able to see the page but couldn't do anything actually on that page.Please check the attachment for the same.Nothing is working on that page. Is it working for any of you? 2) Using File System Access Shell: I am receiving following error. Can you please suggest. > java -jar %SDK_HOME%/lib/javacloud.jar -a http://sftp.us2.cloud.oracle.com:20 -u samrajyam.ch#accenture.com  -id inaccenturetrial00450 -si javatrial2180 -fs Java service file-system access shell [TIP]     - Check your network connections. If you are behind a http(s) proxy, try using            the option -httpproxy[TIP]     - The service may be down. It is also possible the host name or the port name            is wrong in the url http://sftp.us2.cloud.oracle.com:20[ERROR]   - java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out: connect Thanks in advanceSamy
I know that there was an issue at least on older instance for the shell, however in recent versions is should be fixed. Did you try with the proxy parameter as suggested in the error message ? Also "-d" flag would provide you with additional debugging details. So try something like:
java -jar javacloud.jar -user username -fs -id oracletrialXXXX -si javatrialXXXX -dc us2 -hp host:port -d
--Jani RautiainenFusion Applications Developer Relationshttps://blogs.oracle.com/fadevrel/
Also note that in your example I think the value for "-a" parameter is wrong, the help feature describes it as:
- The Java Cloud Service administrative endpoint URL. It
  should be an http(s) location. When specified, this
  overrides the value of datacenter. The value is of the form
  https://javaservices.<datacenter>.cloud.oracle.com where
  datacenter could be a new value (only in small letters)
  that you cannot specify through datacenter. The system will
  prompt for the password necessary to authenticate the user.
Instead you could simply provide with the identity domain, service instance and data center and the "-a" parameter does not need to be included at all ..--Jani RautiainenFusion Applications Developer Relationshttps://blogs.oracle.com/fadevrel/
Also the "Java service file-system access shell" is not part of the command rather the output right ?--Jani RautiainenFusion Applications Developer Relationshttps://blogs.oracle.com/fadevrel/

Yes you can use the file system path in your code.
