Each instance of the Oracle BI Server has its own NQSConfig.INI file. When you
update NQSConfig.INI parameters for a clustered deployment, ensure that you make
the change in the NQSConfig.INI file for each instance of the Oracle BI Server.
Some parameters in NQSConfig.INI are centrally managed by Fusion Middleware
Control and cannot be updated manually in NQSConfig.INI. Instead, use Fusion
Middleware Control to change these parameters. Parameters that are centrally
managed by Fusion Middleware Control are marked as such in this appendix, and are
also identified by comments in the NQSConfig.INI file.
See Appendix G, "Mapping User Interface Labels with Configuration File Elements"
for additional information.
Note the following rules and guidelines for NQSConfig.INI file entries:
■ The Oracle BI Server reads the NQSConfig.INI file each time it is started.
■ Each parameter entry in NQSConfig.INI must be within the section to which the
parameter belongs (Repository, Cache, General, and so on).
■ Each entry must be terminated with semicolon ( ; ).
■ You can add comments anywhere in the NQSConfig.INI file. Comments must
begin with either of the following:
Any text following these comment characters up to the end of the line is ignored
when the Oracle BI Server reads the file.
■ Any syntax errors prevent the Oracle BI Server from starting. The errors are
logged to the nqserver.log file, which is located in:
There might also be a summary message in the system log that relates to the error.
If you get an error, then correct the problem and start the Oracle BI Server again.
Repeat this process until the server starts with no errors.
A.1.1 How to Update Parameters in NQSConfig.INI
The following procedure explains how to update parameters in NQSConfig.INI.
To update parameters in NQSConfig.INI:
1. Open the NQSConfig.INI file in a text editor. You can find this file at:
Make a backup copy of the file before editing.
2. Locate and update the parameter you want to change.
3. Save and close the file.
4. Restart the Oracle BI Server. For more information, see Section 4.1, "About Starting
and Stopping Oracle Business Intelligence."
5. If you have multiple Oracle BI Server instances, then repeat these steps in each
NQSConfig.INI file for all Oracle BI Server instances.
