OBIEE: OEL Uninstall

I've been fighting with VirtualBox and OBIEE the last couple of days trying to get it installed. Finally resolved the issue early this morning with the help of a friend...post coming shortly.

Now I'm uninstalling it so I can repeat the process from this morning in a more lucid state.

I've found the documentation for OBIEE not quite as robust as the database documentation. Specifically, it's not HTML-ified. So direct linking is (near) impossible.

On page 97 of the Oracle Business Intelligence Infrastructure Installation and Configuration Guide are the uninstall directions. Nothing fancy mind you, but I've gotten in the habit lately of documenting everything I do, no matter how seemingly mundane.

In OracleBI_HOME there is a directory called...uninstall:
[root@localhost local]# ls -ltr OracleBI
total 96
-rwxr-x--- 1 oracle oracle 108 Dec 10 01:47 version.txt

drwxr-x--- 3 oracle oracle 4096 Dec 10 02:17 inventory
drwxr-x--- 4 oracle oracle 4096 Dec 10 02:18 uninstall
In that directory is setup.bin, run it.
[oracle@localhost local]$ ./OracleBI/uninstall/setup.bin -console
InstallShield Wizard

Initializing InstallShield Wizard...

Please wait...
I was running it in console mode (i.e. command line interface or CLI) because I've been having problems getting the GUI version to run. Since I'm somewhat lazy, I haven't bothered to figure out the cause (xterm and xclock do work though). Again, the documentation on OBIEE isn't as strong as it is for the database. Console works just fine though...

Ouch, if you think the OBIEE documentation is weak, wait until you get to OBIA's .... :-/

I've noticed it's a bit weak. I've read all yours posts like 12 times already. Maybe we can add to it?
