Integrate BI-Publisher with OEM12c

Regularly I create VM's for courses as a 'Virtual Course Environment'. Earlier I did an install of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c. But now there was a request for an integrated BI Publisher install.

Having an OEM12c install, the integration with BI Publisher with OEM12c is pretty straightforward. The install guide for this integration can be found here. This guide is part of the OEM12c 12.1.0.1 version, and for that version Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g version 11.1.1.5. is required.

My OEM12c install is of version 12.1.0.2.0, so one patch set newer. Apparently the current OEM12c release is 12.1.0.3 (as of november '13).

The 11.1.1.6 release of BI-Publisher can be downloaded here. I initially installed the current 11.1.1.7 release that I downloaded here. However, when I ran the configureBIP script, from {OEM12c Home}/oms/bin, I got the following error:
[oracle@darlin-vce-db bin]$ ./configureBIP
Error: This script requires that BI EE Version "11.1.1.6.0" be installed, but "11.1.1.7.0" has been installed
So it's important to note that OEM12c install is of version 12.1.0.2.0 expects Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition 11g version 11.1.1.6.

By the way, the BI Publisher integration guide of OEM12c release 12.1.0.2.0  is found here. And 'surprisingly' it indeed states that it expects BI-Publisher 11.1.1.6. So, I could have known...
