When we starting BI services for OBIEE 11g always the services will prompt for Admin username and password. To avoid/fix this prompt we have a workaround as follows.
Create a boot.properties file for the Administration Server and BI server. This file enables the Servers to start without prompting you for the administrator username and password.
1. Go to the following directory:
2. In this directory, create a file called boot.properties using a text editor and enter the following lines in the file:
3. Save the file and close the editor. (Make sure that the extension of the file should be boot.properties not boot.properties.txt)
4. Place the same boot.properties in following driectory too to start BI server without asking username and password.
When you start the Administration Server, the username and password entries in the file get encrypted. For security reasons, you want to minimize the time the entries in the file are left unencrypted. After you edit the file, you should start the server as soon as possible so that the entries get encrypted.
