BPM 11gR1 now available on Amazon EC2

This post is deleted as we had to remove the AMI due to various reasons. We are working on it and will post a new entry as we have an update.

Hi there, re: Change the Viewing filters to 64-bit and enter soa-bpm in the search box. You should see the following AMI: 083342568607/oracle-soa-bpm-11gr1-ps2-4.1-pub having done so I cannot see the image... (;-( not yet... brgds Bernhard

Bernhard, You need to make sure that you have selected us-east-1 as the region. This AMI is currently available only in this region. We will be making it available in the EU and APAC region shorly.

Posted by Prasen Palvankar on June 15, 2010 at 11:27 PM PDT #

I feel a video demo of how to setup all this would be very helpful. It will encourage Technology agnostic Business Architects to get hands on quickly. BTW i am from UK and please could you email me when the image is available for UK region.

What is the password for the oracle admin user?

Posted by Kamyar Sadeghi on June 19, 2010 at 10:11 AM PDT #

Interesting read, thanks! I finally see the larger picture :)

Posted by Breanna Donnick on June 23, 2010 at 05:06 PM PDT #

All passwords are welcome1

Posted by Prasen Palvankar on June 23, 2010 at 06:28 PM PDT #

can't seem to find any login/password combo that works with PuTTy. Tried root/welcome1, oracle/welcome1 along with several other usual suspects.

Posted by guest on July 13, 2010 at 01:27 AM PDT #

Root login requires the use of private key for logging in. This is the key that you select when you start a new instance

Posted by Prasen Palvankar on July 13, 2010 at 09:30 AM PDT #

I've noticed that the service start up on their own, but take unusually long to do so (Admin server took 15 mins to get fully started, the SOA server took another 5 mins, others servers took even longer). A little patience and all is fine, but is there something special reason that the startup on this particular server is taking so long?

Posted by guest on July 20, 2010 at 12:17 AM PDT #

This happens only on a fresh start. If you stop (not terminate) and restart the same instance, the startup times for the different servers is normal. I believe this is because, the first time the instance is created, it needs to create a disk volume from the snapshot. This is a 40GB snapshot and thus takes time. You can see this if you log in an run top -- you will see that there is a lot of IO-wait.

Posted by Prasen Palvankar on July 20, 2010 at 09:34 AM PDT #

Hi, I was able to launch the AMI and connected to the running instance using Putty. However I wasn't presented with the term of use, instead I was asked user name and password to sign in. What did I miss? Thanks, Nathan

Posted by Nathan Tsang on August 17, 2010 at 01:25 PM PDT #

You need to login as root. You won't need a password as you will be using the private key that you would have created on Amazon and registered with PuTTY

Posted by Prasen Palvankar on August 18, 2010 at 03:09 AM PDT #

Thanks for the passwords. Can you give us the username for the following parts? I assume the password for each username will be welcome1. http://hostname:port/console http://hostname:port/em http://hostname:port/bpm/workspace http://hostname:port/bpm/composer http://hostname:port/OracleBAM http://hostname:port/b2b Thanks

Is the following product on this image? http://host:port/odsm

Posted by Kevin Bongiovanni on August 31, 2010 at 06:35 AM PDT #

No its not installed

Posted by Prasen Palvankar on August 31, 2010 at 06:42 AM PDT #

You can use weblogic for all. There's also a set of demo users that have been loaded for the SalesQuote demo that is pre-installed. The demo user community is documented here: http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E14571_01/integration.1111/e10226/appx_users.htm#CIHBEFJA

I posted a question about using this image in the SOA Suite forum, see http://forums.oracle.com/forums/message.jspa?messageID=4554957#4554957 Is anyone knowledgeable monitoring this forum, or is this a better place for questions? Groeten, HJH

Is B2B and/or BAM included in this image, or is there any plans for images including these components?

Posted by Jon A. Fagerholm on September 14, 2010 at 07:39 AM PDT #

Both, B2B and BAM are installed. Once you start the instance, you can find the list of all the different servers and ports for the components in a readme in /home/oracle/Desktop directory.

Posted by Prasen Palvankar on September 14, 2010 at 08:07 AM PDT #

Was it really necessary to remove the previous version? I can't see anymore the AMI ami-acb557c5

Posted by Alessandro Ilardo on October 03, 2010 at 06:22 PM PDT #

That AMI was removed as the SOA 11g on it was the first release and there have been two patch sets for SOA released after that. The latest updated AMI ami-e041b489 has the most up-to-date SOA 11g.

Hi Prasen, what about the OSB? Has anyone managed to connect using the server X? I am getting this error while I try to start it up: Fatal server error: no screens found XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining. Couldnt get a file descriptor referring to the console

Posted by Alessandro Ilardo on October 05, 2010 at 06:50 PM PDT #

We are working on an OSB AMI and should be available shortly. As for using X, if you are running a Windows desktop, you will need a X display server on your desktop. You can use something like Cygwin/X or Xming for it.

Posted by Prasen Palvankar on October 06, 2010 at 08:52 AM PDT #

hi, how to know which port is currently available?

Posted by sebi on October 07, 2010 at 03:08 AM PDT #

All ports/URLS etc are documented in a readme file in /home/oracle/Desktop

Posted by Prasen Palvankar on October 07, 2010 at 03:50 AM PDT #

Hi Prasen, This was something we were looking forward to. Thanks for explaining how this works. Do we have a VMware image of the entire package that the client can host at their site? If now how do we achieve this? Thanks, Husain

Posted by Husain D on November 02, 2010 at 09:52 AM PDT #

Scratch that... The VM image is available as mentioned in http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/soasuite/learnmore/vmsoa-172279.html

How can I connect via VNC? Service seem UP.and Listen (I confirm w/ telnet hostname 5901) But Real VNC Viewer Time out..

Posted by Takahiro Yamada on December 12, 2010 at 02:26 PM PST #

I am using the second patch of the software I can get in on VNC but there is nothing I can then do i.e. I cannot get jdeveloper started. NX looks like it is dissabled, I did as I was directed on the post i.e. use the public IP, port 22, use GNOME but get access denied. It looks really good, but just need Jdeveloper. Thanks in advance Nigel

Posted by Nigel Bond on December 14, 2010 at 06:06 AM PST #

You need to install NX server yourself, it is not installed by default. With VNC you should be able to start JDeveloper without any problem.

Posted by Prasen Palvankar on December 14, 2010 at 06:27 AM PST #

Thanks for the reply. My RealVNC connection gets to the site and logs in but how do I start or do anything as the desktop is empty?

Posted by Nigel Bond on December 14, 2010 at 07:50 AM PST #

It should give the full desktop. Try the following: 1. Login as root 2. Run -- /sbin/service vncserver restart This should display something like: Starting VNC server: 1:oracle New 'orabpm-server:1 (oracle)' desktop is orabpm-server:1 3. Using your RealVnc connect to ec2-hostname:1

Posted by Prasen Palvankar on December 14, 2010 at 09:20 AM PST #

Hi Prasen, I am trying to access this AMI image but could not VNC into it. As per your instructions in previous post, I am getting the similar output while starting vncserver. I am using ec2-:1 to connect to vnc, but no luck. Is there any otherway how I can install some more softwares on that and start Jdeveloper ? Regards, Saurabh

Posted by Saurabh on January 04, 2011 at 07:42 PM PST #

I created the image and have everything running. The putty connection works but I cant access any of the URLs given from the show_urls.sh script. I cant even ping the hostname from my machine hence the reason I cant use a browser to connect. Any idea why this might be ?

Posted by Martin on January 05, 2011 at 10:30 PM PST #

You will not be able to ping the server as ICMP is disabled. Have you set up your security group to allow ports in the range 7000 - 9999 to be accessible to any IP address?

Posted by Prasen Palvankar on January 06, 2011 at 02:45 AM PST #

Hi, Does anyone know about pricing? I'd like to use the WebCenter in production running on EC2. Is Oracle already licensing the middleware products using cloud as a host solution? As we don't know the exact number os processors running, the licensing model must be adapted, isn't it? Thank you, Manoel

Hi. I now have everything up and running. I am running JDeveloper locally but I am unable to deploy a composite application to the server. I have set up the server connection in JDeveloper and the test gives me:- Testing JSR-88 ... success. Testing JSR-88-LOCAL ... success. Testing JNDI ... success. Testing JSR-160 DomainRuntime ... success. Testing JSR-160 Runtime ... success. Testing JSR-160 Edit ... success. Testing HTTP ... success.

Or do you have to use the JDeveloper instance youhave configured using VNC. For some reason VNC is also not working. Martin

Posted by Martin on January 09, 2011 at 10:57 PM PST #

To the post above, I have successfully deployed a number of times. You might like to go over each step. I got success and then a failed deploy when my firewall was getting in the way, check you have SSH 22, 7001, 8001, 8888 and 9001 opened. You may not need all these as the OSB is not there. Which brings me to my question, a number of months ago a release with OSB was going to be made, did this happen? I have not found one. If not when might that be added? Thanks Nigel

Posted by Nigel Bond on January 11, 2011 at 07:57 AM PST #

Yes I have all the ports open. And can connect with browser to all the webapps. Just cant deploy !.

Posted by Martin Porter on January 11, 2011 at 10:11 PM PST #

Ok it seems to be working now today. The only difference is that I am not using an elastic IP address. So somehow using elastic IP caused the issue. It could be that I forgot to restart the domain after the elastic IP was associated and hence the config.xml external-dns-name element was then the wrong (old) one rather than the one associated to the elastic IP !. Regards Martin

Posted by Martin Porter on January 11, 2011 at 10:45 PM PST #

All has been easy to create the AMI, convert the cert file and use PuTTY to ssh in and log in as root. Now I'm trying to view the oracle user's desktop with vncserver / xnclient. It looks like vncserver is running (you have to enter the oracle user's vncserver pw when starting the AMI) but no luck authenticating with NX Client. I opened up ports 22, 5900/5901 at my firewall and the AMI security setting but no luck. Can anyone walk be through what is needed to view the desktop so I can launch JDeveloper on the AMI desktop? (assuming this is the right thing to do...) Thanks in advance!

Posted by Don Bedford on February 22, 2011 at 06:41 AM PST #

NX server is not installed in this AMI. You can use a vnc viewer like RealVNC or Tightvnc

Posted by Prasen Palvankar on February 22, 2011 at 06:58 AM PST #

Hmm, sorry about my ignorance with VNC but when I ssh as root and ps aux, I get "... Xvnc :1 -desktop domU-...:1 (oracle) -httpd /usr/share/vnc/classes -auth /home/oracle/.Xauthority..." Does this mean that VNC is listening to port 5901 for the oracle user from running the vncserver command? Do I need to run an NX server from No Machine as well? Again, sorry for being such a vnc newbie...

Posted by Don Bedford on February 23, 2011 at 06:21 AM PST #

Yes, it means the VNC server is running on 5901. You can connect to it using a VNC client \. You can get one from here -- http://www.realvnc.com/products/free/4.1/winvncviewer.html Connect to the server using the public hostname and display 1. for e.g ec2-46-137-7-73.compute.amazonaws.com:1. Note the :1 is required otherwise it will try to connect to 5900 instead of 5901 Installing NX server is not required for using VNC.

Posted by Prasen Palvankar on February 23, 2011 at 06:40 AM PST #

Thank you Prasen! Yes, I've tried using that and other viewers. It looks like they do not allow for the "oracle" username to be used but something like "nx" for nx-client or maybe anonymous - http://www.realvnc.com/products/free/4.1/winvncviewer.html#UserAuthentication When authenticating, do the VNC viewers need to use the oracle username (if that is the host user that started vncserver) and the pw set by vncpasswd? If so, that is where I can't seem to configure them properly. Thank you again!

Posted by Don Bedford on February 23, 2011 at 07:23 AM PST #

The VNC sever is started under the user oracle. So you only need to enter the password you set after you accepted the terms of use.

Posted by Prasen Palvankar on February 23, 2011 at 07:42 AM PST #

Just deployed the SOA BPM AMI. It's in running state, but I cannot reach it. The final output of the system log (obtained through AWS console) is: /dev/sda1 has gone 239 days without being checked, check forced. Looks like it's stuck there forever... Any ideas?

Posted by Joost on March 31, 2011 at 08:20 PM PDT #

A new AMI ami-7c0df015 has been published that addresses this problem

I cannot find ami-7c0df015, is there a new AMI? How can I find this? Also, you mention it includes Oracle Webcenter with BPM Process Spaces, does that mean it includes Webcenter Spaces? Thanks!
