Oracle E-Business R12.2 Single Node Vision install
Oracle EBS Single Node Installation
This the first of a three part of series, during this installment I will describe the steps required to build a single node Vision R12.2.0 on VMWare Fusion. In the subsequent Post I will show how you can do the same but using the new Oracle VM templates, and finally how you can use Delphix to deliver rapid Oracle EBS clones using the environment previously created.
- Download R12.2.0 media from edelivery
- Create VMWare Fusion Virtual Machine
- Perform a 'minimal' Linux installation (this post used Oracle Linux 6.5)
- Stage the Media
- Install Oracle EBS R12.2.0
Logon to http://edelivery.oracle.com and navigate download Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 Media Pack for Linux x86-64-bit.
Download all the parts for the following Part Numbers:
VMWare Fusion Build
For this install I created a Virtual Machine (VM) with 6GB of memory and the VM stored on my external 1TB USB drive, if you can spare it 8GB of memory would be ideal as under load you will swap with only 6GB of memory, I then added 3 Disks to the VM.
- 20GB for OS including 6GB for Swap
- 400GB for Oracle EBS R12.2.3
- 100GBGB for Media staging area
Linux 'Minimal' Install
As this is an EBS install walkthrough I am not going to detail a standard Linux install as there are plenty of other great guides on the Web. When you perform your Linux install allocate the 20GB disk for / with 6GB for Swap, 100GB for /mnt/stage and 400GB for /u01.
As we are starting with a 'Minimal' install we are going to need some additional packages, Oracle now provide an Oracle EBS pre-install package similar to the database package (oracle-rdbms-server-11gR2-preinstall) so we are going to use it this guide.
Remove and update Yum repository:
[root@ebssource ~]# cd /etc/yum.repos.d [root@ebssource yum.repos.d]# rm public-yum-ol6.repo
Replace the original version with this newer version:
[root@ebssource yum.repos.d]# wget http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-ol6.repo
Edit the public-yum-ol6.repo file to enable the ol6_addons channel.
Find the ol6_addons section and change enabled=0 to enabled=1.
[ol6_addons] name=Oracle Linux $releasever Add ons ($basearch) baseurl=http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL6/addons/$basearch/ gpgkey=http://public-yum.oracle.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle-ol6 gpgcheck=1 enabled=1
Save the file.
[root@ebssource repos.d.yum]# yum install oracle-ebs-server-R12-preinstall.x86_64
This installs the basic necessary packages on Oracle Linux 6 to support the Oracle R12.2 and applies required Kernel, configuration changes and creates the oracle, applmgr users and oinstall and dba groups.
Files updated included:
/etc/security/limits.conf /etc/sysctl.conf /etc/resolv.conf /etc/group /etc/passwd
Stage the Media
Copy the R12.2.3 media you downloaded edelivery and latest StartCD patch p18086193_R12_GENERIC.zip to /mnt/Stage1223 [root@ebssource ~]# cd /mnt/stage [root@ebssource stage]# unzip p18086193_R12_GENERIC.zip.
Unlike previous version of Oracle R12, R12.2.0 no longer requires you to manually unzip the media into the R12 directory structure, this in now automated by the buildStage.sh script, just need the startCD unzipped.
Change directory to the new patched startCD [root@ebssource stage]# cd startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz/bin/ [root@ebssource bin]# ./buildStage.sh.
Once completed above step successfully, you must run the buildStage.sh script and select option 2. Copy new patches to current stage area from the Build Stage Menu:
Install EBS R12.2.3
Allow you Mac to accept remote X sessions $ sudo xhost +
Determine your IP address $ ifconfig -a
Set your DISPLAY back to your MAC within your Virtual Linux Server [root@ebssource ~]#export DISPLAY=<IP addess>:0
Your now ready to start the Rapidwiz installer.
[root@ebssource stage]# cd startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz/ [root@ebssource bin]# ./rapidwiz

Click on 'Finish' to leave the installer.
You can now use Safari to test out your install. http://<server name.domain>:8000/OA_HTML/AppsLogin Remember to add your Virtual Machines IP address and name to you localhost file sudo vi /etc/hosts
