Objective

Step by Step instructions to install Oracle Applications R12(12.1.1) on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 are described in this article. This is a single node installation, meaning that the database, all product directories and AD core directories, and all servers (concurrent processing, forms, and Web) are installed on a single node under one common APPL_TOP.

The database node and the Applications node can be installed on the same machine. This type of installation is generally used for small systems or for demonstration purposes. More commonly, the database node is installed on one machine, and the Applications node on another machine. This provides improved manageability, scalability, and performance.

This document will take Linux 64 bit platform as example. And my hardware configuration is

Download & Unzip

Download

Official Download Link https://edelivery.oracle.com/

For Oracle Internal User, you can also download from link: https://sac.us.oracle.com/download/index.html

(NOTE: Choose proper platform and 32 bit/64 bit download files)

Download Tips:

Use the following command for Batch download, firstly collect all URLs required and put it in a text file, say download.txt, one URL on a line

wget -i download.txt

(-i means Read URLs from file.)

Unzip

Create stage area - for downloaded installation pack, just unzip all zip files under stage area directory StageR12, eg.

unzip B53824-01_1of4.zip -d /u02/ StageR12

unzip B53824-01_2of4.zip -d /u02/ StageR12

… …

After unzip, File Path in StageR12 like following,


MD5 Checksums

Strongly suggest you perform MD5 check against the stage area.

The md5 checksums for the staged directory structure can be used to validate the software integrity. Do this by running the md5sum program against the stage area using the oracle created checksum file. Note for can observe you have any problem with your stage or not(Corrupted zip etc)

MD5 Checksums for R12.1.1 Rapid Install Media (Doc ID 802195.1)

Pre-Install Task

Note:


    1: The openmotif package version must be 2.1.30 (for example, openmotif-2.3.3-1 is not supported).

2: This unzip package (available from EL 5 distribution) is only required for purposes of running Rapid Install to unzip the required EBS files as part of the installation.


Be sure you have above rmp on your system, you can use below command to check whether RPM packages are installed or not

rpm -qa --queryformat "%{NAME}-%{VERSION}.%{RELEASE} (%{ARCH})\n" | grep gcc

q = query

a = all


What’s the RPM:The Red Hat Package Manager (RPM) is a toolset used to build and manage software packages on UNIX systems. Distributed with the Red Hat Linux distribution and its derivatives (CentOS is 100% compatible rebuild of the Rehat Enterprise Linux).
The RPM files represent application or package that you can install on Linux system.

JDK

JDK 6 is bundled with Oracle E-Business Suite version 12.1.1. You do NOT need to install the JDK separately.

/etc/hosts

For Oracle Linux 4, 5 and 6, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5:

Verify that the /etc/hosts file is formatted as follows:

127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost

[ip_address] [node_name].[domain_name] [node_name]


/etc/sysconfig/network

Verify that the /etc/sysconfig/network file is formatted as follows:

HOSTNAME=[node_name].[domain_name]


/etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/network

If the /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/network file exists, remove it.

If you changed any files in the previous steps, restart the system.

/etc/sysctl.conf

Edit the /etc/sysctl.conf file to configure your kernel settings. After editing the file, use the "sysctl -p" command or restart the system to invoke the new settings.

Note: If the current value for any parameter is higher than the value listed in the following table, then do not change the value of that parameter.

The following table lists the kernel settings for Oracle Linux 4, 5 and 6, Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS/ES 4 and 5, and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 and 10:


1: set using the following entry in the /etc/sysctl.conf file: kernel.sem = 256 32000 100 142

2: On the server running the EBS Database, this kernel parameter must be the lesser of half the size of the physical memory (in bytes) and 4294967295

3: values recommended for the local port range may need to be adjusted according to the specific needs of the user's environment in order to avoid port conflicts.

/etc/security/limits.conf

Open the /etc/security/limits.conf file and change the existing values for "hard" and "soft" parameters as follows. Restart the system after making changes.

Note: If the current value for any parameter is higher than the value listed in this document, then do not change the value of that parameter.


  * hard nofile 65535

  * soft nofile 4096

  * hard nproc 16384

  * soft nproc 2047

/etc/resolv.conf

Add or update the following entries to these minimum settings in the /etc/resolv.conf file on each server node:

options attempts:5

options timeout:15

OS Library Patch for Oracle HTTP Server(on Oracle Linux 5, RHEL 5 and Oracle Linux 6 only)

Download and apply the patch 6078836 from My Oracle Support to fix an issue with the Oracle HTTP Server (missing libdb.so.2) bundled with the E-Business Suite technology stack.

Note that this patch (which includes a required operating system library) must be applied before installing Oracle E-Business Suite.

Without this patch, after installation, HTTP Server can not start.

Link to Motif library in Oracle Application Server 10.1.2 (on Oracle Linux 5 and RHEL 5 only)

Perform the following command (as root on your system) to update a required link to a Motif library prior to relinking or patching the 10.1.2 Application Server Oracle Home:

# unlink /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6

# ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/libXtst.so.6.1 /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6

OS User & Group

Generally for PROD instance, we need create two OS user for installation, one user is used to manage DB, the other is used to manage Apps.

Since our instance is a TEST instance, so for simple, we just create one user to manage DB and Apps, Here we use ‘oracle’ as user, use ‘oinstall’  as group.

# groupadd oinstall -g 2000

# useradd -g oinstall -u 2000 oracle

# chown -R oracle:oinstall /u01/oracle



chown changes the user and/or group ownership of each given file.
-R, operate on files and directories recursively

Installation process

Export Display

To ensure we have a graphical installation process, we can export server to our local linux which have X window system. If your server have installed X window, then you can ignore this step.


(ptian) ptian- env | grep ALTDISPLAY

ALTDISPLAY=rws60004sgd.us.oracle.com:50

(First, in our local linux, Check our local linux’s host and port)

(ptian) ptian- ssh admin@bej301441.cn.oracle.com

admin@bej301441.cn.oracle.com's password:

Last login: Thu May 31 21:32:49 2012 from 10.182.114.9

(SSH to server which we intend to install EBS)

[admin@bej301441 ~]$ export DISPLAY=rws60004sgd.us.oracle.com:50

./rapidwiz

If you intend to use standard installation mode, you need login as root user.

 [root@bej301441 rapidwiz]#cd /u02/StageR12/startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz

[root@bej301441 rapidwiz]# ./rapidwiz

Default Oracle EBS Ports


Port numbers can be modified during installation or may be automatically incremented by x during installation where x is a number 1 to 100 (typical less than 10). Port number ranges are often a grouping of 3, 4, 5, or 6 contiguous ports in the specified range.



LoginTest: http://<host_name>.<domain_name>:port/OA_HTML/AppsLogin



Add Env parameter to .bash_profile file

.bash_profile is a bash shell that is started when login.

For DB user, Modify /.bash_profile, add your DB env file path into it, eg.

. /u01/oracle/mc3yd213/db/tech_st/11.1.0/mc3yd213_bej301441.env


For Apps user, Modify /.bash_profile, add your Apps env file path into it, eg.

. /u01/oracle/mc3yd213/apps/apps_st/appl/APPSmc3yd213_bej301441.env
