Installing OnCommand Insight Data Warehouse


The installation is self-contained and includes the elements required to run and operate OnCommand Insight Data Warehouse (DWH).

Before you begin

You must have completed all of the installation prerequisites.

About this task

Data Warehouse has Cognos reporting capabilities. If you install Insight on a Linux server, you can use these capabilities, however, only if you install the Data Warehouse on a Windows server. For information about installing the Data Warehouse on Windows and Cognos reporting capabilities, refer to the OnCommand Insight Installation Guide for Microsoft Windows.


  1. Log in to the Data Warehouse server using an account with sudo privileges.

  2. Navigate to the directory on the server where the installation files are located and type the following command:

    unzip oci-dwh-<version>-linux-x86_64.zip

    Ensure that you check the version number of the installation file; the version number might be different than the one shown in the command.

  3. You can view syntax, command arguments, and parameter usage for oci-install.sh before you begin the installation:

    sudo ./oci-dwh-<version>-linux-x86_64/oci-install.sh --help

  4. Run the installation script:

    sudo ./oci-dwh-<version>-linux-x86_64/oci-install.sh

  5. Read the License Agreement, accept it, and follow the prompts.


After you answer all the prompts, the installation begins and should take approximately 10 minutes, depending on the applications installed.
