    hello Kaberi -

    Please file an SR with Oracle Support with details of the installation issue, logs, etc. after confirming you've met all requirements for installing EBS 12.2 on OL/RHEL 7 following the Note 1330701.1.

    Hi John, The specific issue shows up in log file oracle.apps.fnd.txk.install0.log and the issue mentions Stderr: Can't locate File/CheckTree.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib64/perl5 /usr/local/share/perl5 /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 .) at /apps/fin/ofm/fs2/EBSapps/10.1.2/nls/data/old/cr9idata.pl line 32.

    We also have Oracle Support SR for this issue too.

    Please advice.

    Hello Kaberi -

    Issues like these are best worked through Oracle Support who can review, triage and advise on the best course of action. I have not heard of nor seen this particular problem, and would not be able to provide further guidance via the blog.

    I'd be happy to review the SR and monitor the issue if you'd like to - if so, please send the SR number privately to me. See https://blogs.oracle.com/stevenChan/resource/about.html for email contacts.
