Obi Edition


How to changes the ports use by OBIEE 10g.


Application Server OC4J (9704)

A specific listener port can be specified in default-web-site.xml, or a range of ports can be set in the OPMN configuration file (opmn.xml).

Go in the directory oc4j\j2ee\home\config. Open the file default-web-site.xml and change the port value.

<?xml version="1.0"?>

<web-site xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation=""  
port="80" <- Change here, it is 9704 for OC4J in OBIEE
display-name="OC4J 10g (10.1.3) Default Web Site" schema-major-version="10" schema-minor-version="0" > 
	<default-web-app application="default" name="defaultWebApp" />
	<web-app application="system" name="dms0" root="/dmsoc4j" />
	<web-app application="system" name="dms0" root="/dms0" />
	<web-app application="system" name="JMXSoapAdapter-web" root="/JMXSoapAdapter" />
	<web-app application="default" name="jmsrouter_web" load-on-startup="true" root="/jmsrouter" />
	<web-app application="javasso" name="javasso-web" root="/jsso" />
	<web-app application="ascontrol" name="ascontrol" load-on-startup="true" root="/em" ohs-routing="false" />
	<web-app application="analytics" name="analytics" load-on-startup="true" root="/analytics" />
	<web-app application="bioffice" name="bioffice" load-on-startup="true" root="/bioffice" />
	<web-app application="xmlpserver" name="xmlpserver" load-on-startup="true" root="/xmlpserver" />
	<web-app application="xwiki" name="xwiki-enterprise-web-1.4.1" load-on-startup="true" root="/xwiki" />
	<web-app application="mapviewer" name="web" load-on-startup="true" root="/mapviewer" />
	<web-app application="Map" name="Map" load-on-startup="true" root="/Map" />
	<access-log path="../log/default-web-access.log" split="day" />

And then, restart OC4J server

Presentation Services

To change the default port of the OBI Presentation Services, edit the following files with the changed port number:

  • Instanceconfig.xml
  • isapiconfig.xml File (depending on the Web Server or Operating System)
  • web.xml

Note: When you change OBI Presentation (OBIP) port number in the web.xml file from the default, you may need to change the localhost value and replace it with the OBIP server name

This is documented in the deployment guide > Chapter 9 Other Deployment-Related Topics > Oracle BI Communications Across Security Firewalls > Changing the BI Presentation Services Listener Port Configuring BI Presentation Services Plug-in when BI Presentation Services Listener Port Has Been Changed

But please note that there is one incorrect information in the ''Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition Deployment Guide ':

Instead of the documented syntax, please remove the reference to RPC in the instanceconfig.xml file.

Remove the RPC tag and only enter the following in the instanceconfig.xml file:

<Listener port="9715" />

Changing the OBI server port that SAS is communicating to SAW under

  • Modify the RPC_SERVICE_OR_PORT parm in NQSConfig.ini located in the [ Server ] section to the new port
  • Change the SAW ODBC DSN within ODBC Data Source Administrator to use this port
