OBIEE uses the Repository Creation Utility, or RCU, to create a set of schemas that are required and hold internal metadata such as Usage Tracking and Scheduler tables.
When you run RCU, you are given a GUI interface to specify the database connection details, schema prefixes, and so on. It is good to be aware that you can run it from the command line, and silently too if you want. This can be useful if you are installing on Linux/Unix and don’t have easy access to an X-Windows server, and also very handy if you want to run an unattended installation.
Unlike Oracle Universal Installer (OUI), you cannot specify a “response” file for the RCU, but can you can supply lots of options as command-line arguments. The full syntax is documented here.
An example call to RCU to create the two schemas for OBI (MDS and BIPLATFORM) would be:
