Missing Java library

Oracle EBS R12.2.5 Screenshot 12

The above failure is due to a missing java library file, this can be fixed with the below. $ORACLE_HOME/javavm/jdk/jdk7/lib/libjavavm12.a lib to $ORACLE_HOME/lib/ If your quick you can copy it whilst rapidwiz is installing the Oracle Home, otherwise you will have to clean-up the oraInventory and star rapidwiz again.

RMAN failure

The installer will try to restore the data files using RMAN, previous releases just unzipped the files, the installer will continue for a while until. RMAN-04014: startup failed: ORA-01127: database name 'OLDDBNAME' exceeds size limit of 8 characters This can be fixed by updating the RMANinit.ora file and restarting rapidwiz e.g. /u01/oracle/VIS/12.1.0/dbs/RMANinit.ora db_name=OLDDBNAME to db_name=VIS

Perl Segmentation fault

Another, problem you may encounter with your Oracle EBS R12.2.5 install is a perl 'Segmentation fault' $ pwd /u01/oracle/VIS/12.1.0/perl/bin $ ./perl -v Segmentation fault $ cd $ORACLE_HOME $ mv perl/ perl.old/ $ mkdir perl Change directory back to your downloaded version and re-compile. $ cd $ cd perl/perl-5.14.1 $./Configure -des -Dprefix=$ORACLE_HOME/perl -Doptimize=-O3 -Dusethreads -Duseithreads -Duserelocatableinc ; make clean ; make ; make install $ cd $ORACLE_HOME/perl $ rm -rf lib/ man/ $ cp -r ../perl.old/lib/ . $ cp -r ../perl.old/man/ . $ cp ../perl.old/bin/dbilogstrip bin/ $ cp ../perl.old/bin/dbiprof bin/ $ cp ../perl.old/bin/dbiproxy bin/ $ cp ../perl.old/bin/ora_explain bin/

Rapidwiz Completion

Once the installed is complete you can now confirm your EBS and database versions using the following: SQL> select release_name from apps.fnd_product_groups; SQL> select * from v$version; In part III of this BLOG series I will share the steps to upgrade from R12.2.0 to R12.2.5 Follow @RonEkins
