The errors

The errors come from the fact that no directory analytics_11.1.1 exists in the directory _WL_USER.

This is because the installation is of type Enterprise and not Simple. In the case of an Enterprise installation, the path must go in the bi_server1 and not in the adminserver.

Copy the file installSA, rename it (for instance installSA_biserver) and in the copy file section, leave only the below commands:

echo "[INFO] Copying files for Actions"
cp -rf $SA_INSTALL_DIR/Actions/CommentaryArtifacts/*.gif $OBIEE_INSTALL_HOME/user_projects/domains/bifoundation_domain/servers/bi_server1/tmp/_WL_user/analytics_11.1.1/7dezjl/war/res/b_mozilla/actions
cp -rf $SA_INSTALL_DIR/Actions/CommentaryArtifacts/*.gif $OBIEE_INSTALL_HOME/user_projects/domains/bifoundation_domain/servers/bi_server1/tmp/_WL_user/analytics_11.1.1/7dezjl/war/res/s_blafp/images

cp -rf $SA_INSTALL_DIR/Actions/CommentaryArtifacts/UserScripts.js $OBIEE_INSTALL_HOME/user_projects/domains/bifoundation_domain/servers/bi_server1/tmp/_WL_user/analytics_11.1.1/7dezjl/war/res/b_mozilla/actions
cp -rf $SA_INSTALL_DIR/Actions/CommentaryArtifacts/UserScripts.js $ORACLE_HOME/bifoundation/web/app/res/b_mozilla/actions

And start the file:

$ chmod +x
$ ./
