OBIEE 11G Scheduler Configuration & Mail Configuration on Windows 7/XP/2003 servers.

I have seen several posts in OTN forum for Scheduler configuration for obiee 11g on windows. In 11g petty much easy for scheduler configuration compare to 10g. Please follow the below steps you can achieve easily.

What is the Difference Between 10g & 11g.

OBIEE 10g we can create a saved request / Analysis in OBIEE 11g and we can schedule the reports. But in OBIEE 11g all the  tables related to scheduler services are preconfigured. When we are installing OBIEE 11g , we are running repository creation Utility (RCU). Rcu is creation two schemas called Metadata schema (MDS) and BIPLATFORM. All the scheduler related tables were created in BIPLATFORM schema. So Enterprise Manger (EM) is taking these schemas automatically and running scheduler servers in BI 11g. Connect with BIPLATFORM schema in the data source. There we can view the scheduler related tables NQ_JOB,S_NQ_INSTANCE,S_NQ_JOB_PARAM,S_NQ_ERR_MSG which are created already when we were running RCU. Configure Email settings:
Configure Email settings:
1.        Login to Fusion Middleware Control Enterprise manager (http://yourservername:7001:/em) using Admin user credentials
2. Navigate to Mail tab (Business Intelligence > core application > Deployment>Mail

Here no need modify anything it is default.
