Creating an EBS R12 Instance Using the Express Install Option

The Oracle E-Business Suite Rapid Install provides an easy-to-use Express Install option. This option sets default values for several of the customizable inputs that the Apps DBA must enter in subsequent screens. Express Install is convenient for test instance setup as well as for training purposes. Note that this option is valid only for new installations and cannot be used for upgrades.

How to Use Express Install?

Assuming that you have met all the prerequisites to perform a Rapid Install on your machine based on the platform specific installation guides, Express Install can be performed using rapidwiz. The inputs required to use Express install are:

1. Oracle Configuration Manager

    • Email ID and the My Oracle Support password
    • Check box indicating if you would like to receive Security Updates via My Oracle Support.

2. Configuration choice

Here you specify whether you would like to create a new configuration or use an existing configuration file that has been saved from a previous run of rapidwiz.

3. Node information (if you have chosen to create new configuration above)

Specify the following parameters:

  • Database Type (Fresh database or Vision)
  • Database SID
  • Domain name
  • Base directory for the installation (by default, entire install including APPL_TOP and DB is placed in this directory)
  • Instance directory (default value is <base directory>/inst )
  • Port pool

That's it!  After making sure that the System Checks all pass in the Preinstall Checks window that follows, you are ready to perform an Express Install.  After this, the installation proceeds requiring no human intervention.  Upon completion of the install, you are ready to use the EBS instance.

Can it get any easier?

Hi Steven,

I am upgrading from 12.0.6 to 12.1.1 and as part of the upgrade, need to install OCM (Oracle Configuration Manager) Software. Do you know where I can download this for R12 and what the name of the software package is?

Thanks
Ben
