Installing Oracle Applications , Become Apps DBA II

So lets start learning from How to Become Oracle Apps DBA . This Oracle Apps DBA Training is completely FREE only thing I am looking is your feedback & what you want to hear more , If you are reading this post first time I will recommend you that you start from first post i.e. from Saturday, 29 July 2006.I hope you as Oracle Apps DBA Understand basic Architecture of Oracle E-Business Suite (If no read my first post ) .
Lets Start with Installation, You can start Installing Apps on Unix, Linux or Windows. I recommend Linux if not then Unix & finally Windows (I find it difficult working on windows as you need additional component to install E-Business Suite ) .

For Installation Guide visit Oracle Documentation, For R12 http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E18727_01/doc.121/e12842/T422699i4773.htm#3708182 and for 11i click http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B25284_01/current/html/docset.html (Installing Oracle Applications: A Guide to Using Rapid Install)

This E-Business Suite Installation Guide consist of 166 pages & you need to Install all. Read Chapter 1-8 Single User Installation or Two User Installation.

As by now you are aware that E-Business Applications Two Tier Database & Application , so first User Oxxxxx is for Database Tier & Second User Axxxxxx for Application Tier. If you are new & Installing it first time better Install everything on Single Machine, Database Under User Oxxxxx and Middle Tier under Axxxxxx.
Then you can Install Oracle Applications by Inserting CD’s one after other or by dumping all disks to one location ( Universal Installer will not prompt to insert CD if you staged/dump your CD on Machine it in proper way, Pg 1-12 , page 24 of Guide), If you are Installing Oracle Apps first time, Select Single Node(Also called Single Machine) Installation. Go to Chapter 2, on page 29 of Guide , you will see screen by Screen navigation path for Installation ( Believe me its very simple and just 30 pages all screens so nothing much to read ). After installation forget Chapter 3,4,5 (these are for Advanced Installation Option – Look them once you are comfortable with Simple Instalation) go directly to chapter 6 , Page 141 (This describes how to Check/Access Oracle E-Business Suite 11i Installation) Just 10 pages. So here complete your Oracle 11i Application & that biggest challenge in becoming Oracle Apps DBA . If you face any Issues during Installation post your problem in some Forum or Metalink , else drop a comment on this Post.

 

How to do Multi Node Installation on Apps 11i ?
If you are comfortable & now want to know how to do multinode Installation for Oracle Applications 11i then follow Chapter 3 (p65- p106) of guide Installing Oracle Applications: A Guide to Using Rapid Install at http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B25284_01/current/html/docset.html

 

Tomorrow I’ll discuss file system & directories which you/dba’s/apps dba have Installed today , What oracle application component sits where ? That will be helpful to understand you Oracle Application .  Leave comments on this post, depending on that I’ll get feedback if its useful or am I wasting your & my time .

Appreciate your effort to help newbies.

I have downloaded 11i for linux from oracle website. I have a question can I install 11i from the hard disk without burning it into DVD’s.
If I had to burn them then what content would go on which DVD, for example the download contains disks labelled Disk1…Disk11, how many disks should come on one DVD.

Hi Anonymous ,
Thanks for your compliment, I appreciate your comments but I’ll be more happy if you update your name, it creates more intimacy with my readers.

Yes you can install directly from dump on your hard disk . Infact thats better way if you install it from disk ( called as staging area as you don’t have to insert CD/DVD again & again).

Usually one DVD can store 3-4 GB data & I suppose if your total installation dump space is 12 GB , 3-4 DVD’s should be enough .

I suppose 120GB would do for 11.5.10 . around 67 GB is enough for 11.5.9 vision.

Hi Atul,

I want to asked some questions about Oracle Apss :

1. When I setup fresh install there’s one setting that make me doubt, it’s about country specific functionalities. What would might be the problem and how to solve it assume that my country is not included in the list and I choose another nearest country?

2. How to configure PL/SQL Log & Out Directory. Just erase all directory links under utl_file_dir or just the tmp directory and then change to another directory we choose? I’d read oracle docs but still not clear on how to setup it.

3. About database initialization parameter, the installation doc from oracle wrote that : “The current init.ora settings allow for a total 100 connections. However , after the standard setup is complete, only a few users can be connected … .” I compared the init.ora and init(SID).ora files from my vision machine and fresh install machine, other than directory links all are the same. So what caused only a few users can be connected and how do we change it because I don’t know which one to change.

Thank you.

Hi Atul, I am trying to install Oracle11 EBS on Windows vista. Ofcourse I am beginer. During rapid install, after the system check it gave me one “x” result i.e. system could not find the hard drive(cmd.exe command) where I have Drive F: as an external drive and path during the load is F:\Oracle.

And few with “!” result: it could not find the VC++ as I loaded Visual c++ 2005 on to my c: drive. VC++ is loaded automatically with out giving me any options to select directory. So the system loaded into default directory to “C:\program files\microsoft visual studio\…..” (which contains spaces in path??). One more is “System Compatibility”, I think it is because of Vista operating system. Can I ignore this item if not What I need to do?

sys/manager@VIS means you are trying to connect remotely and hence you need to create password file .

You can login to sys from database tier like below

Set ORACLE_HOME to database oracle_home and set SID

export ORACLE_HOME=/d01/oracle/visdb/9.2.0

export ORACLE_SID=VIS

and connect locally like

sqlplus “/as sysdba”

I need to know what are the changes required in oracle database as well as oracle application side if we change the domain name for a server(DNS change).

Hi Atul,

I want to install 11.5.10.2 on linux and trying to search download on http://edelivery.oracle.com as per your suggestion.
But it seems to be only R12 setup has been available there, Have Oracle removed 11i from site?
Or anyother place where I can get setup for 11.5.10.2 ?
Please reply.
Thanks in advance.
Akash

hi atul i have problem after instal 11i on my pc
i.e i have created 2 servers database server and applmgr server but prodappl,prodcomn,prodora are also database server how can realocate them to applmgr please tell me.

khaja says January 3, 2011

i did’t get any reply i will explain my porblem again
ie after instaled 11i in my database tier only all [SID]appl,[SID]comn,[SID]ora and SID]db, [SID]data have created how can realocate this [SID]appl,[SID]comn,[SID]ora to apps tier please tell me.

Reply
Atul Kumar says January 4, 2011

@ khaja,
This is because when you installed apps you selected same server name for both apps & database tier.

Now to move apps tier you have two options

1. Reinstall but with correct servername for apps tier (easy)

2. Migrate apps tier to second node .
2.1 Run pre clone on apps tier
2.2 Copy [SID]appl,[SID]comn,[SID]ora to apps server
2.4 Shutdown applicaton services on current system (keep db & db listener running)
2.3 Run adaddnode
cd [COMMON_TOP]/clone/bin
perl adaddNode.pl
2.4 Retire old apps node

Hi Atul,

My apps 11i installation is stuck in 2nd step at 20% while command in Progress: ” command: d01/oracle/proddb/9.2.0/temp/PROD_localhost/adrundb.sh ”

i wait more then 5hr many time but still no progress, but i can see “oracle” process is running in back ground approximate 85 process.

plz tell me what could i do in this case….

Reply
Atul Kumar says May 7, 2011

@ danish29,
Check how much is free memory and what is CPU usages on machine on which you are installing 11i .

Check installation log file for database tier to see what is installer doing and where it is stuck.

Chances (based on my personal exp) are that there is not enough memory on server.
