Oracle Applications R12.2 Installation on Linux using virtual box

Oracle E-Business suite R12.2 is released a month ago. I received too many requests from my followers to demonstrate this Installation.

This is a step by step detailed article for Installing Oracle E-business suite R12,2 on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.7 (64-bit). I’ve used oracle virtual box for Installing Linux.
Note: 
This Installation is demonstrated on virtual machine with 8GB RAM and Installation completed in 7 hours. I am not sure whether this Installation will work with less than this . 
 
My Virtual Machine configuration:
 
CPU    = 1 core
RAM   = 8 GB
HDD   =  380 GB
 
Software’s Required:
1) Oracle Virtual Box
2) Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.7 (64-bit)
3) Oracle E-Business suite R12.2 for LinuxX86-64-bit
Installation Steps:
  1. Hardware requirements
  2. Create virtual machine and Install operating system
  3. Operating System pre-requisites
  4. Prepare Stage Area
  5. Install Oracle EBS R12.2 software
  6. Verify Installation
1. Hardware Requirements:
As per the documentation its recommended to use 4GB Memory for database Tier and 6GB for Application Tier (0 -10 users). So if you are performing a single node Installation in PRODUCTION then min. of 10g RAM is recommended.
Table Displays Recommended hardware requirements based on number of users:
2.  Create virtual machine and Install operating system:
–  Follow screens for creation of virtual machine and OS Installation
– Initially configured 6GB later increased to 8 GB
– Change NW adapter to bridged
– use OEL 5.7  64-Bit Iso Image as media
– Power ON virtual machine and proceed with OS Installation

 

 

 

3. Operating System pre-requisites:
– create OS group, user and directories:
[root@erpnode2 Server]# groupadd dbaerp
[root@erpnode2 Server]# useradd -g dbaerp oraR12
[root@erpnode2 Server]# useradd -g dbaerp applR12
[root@erpnode2 Server]# passwd oraR12
Changing password for user oraR12.
New UNIX password: 
BAD PASSWORD: it is based on a dictionary word
Retype new UNIX password: 
passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully.
[root@erpnode2 Server]# passwd applR12
Changing password for user applR12.
New UNIX password: 
BAD PASSWORD: it is based on a dictionary word
Retype new UNIX password: 
passwd: all authentication tokens updated successfully.
[root@erpnode2 Server]#
– Create directories and change permissions:
[root@erpnode2 ~]# mkdir -p /d01/ora_prod
[root@erpnode2 ~]# mkdir -p /d01/appl_prod
[root@erpnode2 ~]# chmod -R 775 /d01/*_prod
[root@erpnode2 ~]# chown -R oraR12:dbaerp /d01/ora_prod
[root@erpnode2 ~]# chown -R applR12:dbaerp /d01/appl_prod
[root@erpnode2 ~]#
– configure kernel parameters (Edit /etc/sysctl.conf file):

– Make sure proper privileges are give to stage directory (755 or 775)

5. Install Oracle E-Business suite R12.2:

– Make sure proper display is configured

– Run rapidwiz from the staging directory

– This is the new option introduced in R12.2, you can select different ports on 2 File systems.
– Select two different locations for dual file system (New option R12.2)

– Here you can provide required password for all listed users. I’ve selected to use default password. (New Option R12.2)

– All Pre-requisite checks are successful.

– Its restoring datafiles using rman scripts

– Installation completed successfully

6. Verify Installation:

– Login to Oracle EBS and  verify application access





– Login to OAM > Dashboard

– Here its just listing Admin, database and concurrent manger server. Middle Tier services are managed with weblogic server (New Option R12.2)

– Login to weblogic console to verify middle layer services

– EBS_domain_PROD is Oracle EBS R12.2 domain

– All middle Tier services are now managed in weblogic domain “EBS_domain_PROD” (New option – R12.2)

– If we check status of opmn process its just listing the domain of weblogic server (New Option – R12.2)

I hope this post will be helpful for beginners and experienced DBA’s as well who are willing to Install this release in their environments.

Note:

In Linux 6 there are some post Installation steps for applying patches where as in Linux 5 there are no post Installation instructions.
