Prepare for Oracle Apps R12 Installation

In today’s post I will discuss on steps you should do/need for Oracle Apps R12 installation. Most of these steps are written w.r.t. to Installation on Linux but I’ll try to mention any additional software required for Windows or any other platform.

Where to download Apps R12 Software ?
First thing you need is Oracle Apps R12 which is available at eDelivery (Click here to go to eDelivery) or you can order software DVD’s via Metalink. You don’t need to download all CD’s .

You might have to register initially with Name, Company & email address & try again after 1-2 days (You might not get confirmation, just try after a day)
Select product as E-Business Suite & your platform , For Linux you have to select Part Number B35903-01 (There are total 72 CD’s {you don’t need all 72 CD’s} with total size as 35GB {this is just software size & not actual installation})

In actual you have to download following 64 CD’s rest others are for NLS, 10g AS & BI CD’s

Oracle Applications Release 12.0 Rapid Install Start Here – Disk 1 (5 CD’s)
Oracle Applications Release 12.0 for Linux x86 Rapid Install RDBMS – Disk 1 (3 CD’s)
Oracle Applications Release 12.0 for Linux x86 Rapid Install Databases – Disk 1 (6 CD’s)
Oracle Applications Release 12.0 for Linux x86 Rapid Install Databases – Disk 2 (7 CD’s)
Oracle Applications Release 12.0 for Linux x86 Rapid Install Databases – Disk 3 (7 CD’s)
Oracle Applications Release 12.0 for Linux x86 Rapid Install Databases – Disk 4 (8 CD’s)
Oracle Applications Release 12.0 for Linux x86 Rapid Install Databases – Disk 5 (7 CD’s)
Oracle Applications Release 12.0 for Linux x86 Rapid Install Databases – Disk 6 (2 CD’s)
Oracle Applications Release 12.0 for Linux x86 Rapid Install Databases – Disk 7 (7 CD’s)
Oracle Applications Release 12.0 for Linux x86 Rapid Install Databases – Disk 8 (2 CD’s)
Oracle Applications Release 12.0 for Linux x86 Rapid Install Tools – Disk 1 (3 CD’s)
Oracle Applications Release 12.0 for Linux x86 Rapid Install APPL_TOP – Disk 1 (6 CD’s) Oracle Applications Release 12.0 for Linux x86 Rapid Install APPL_TOP – Disk 2 (1 CD)

Oracle Apps R12 Installation Document
Next thing you need is Oracle Apps R12 Installation Guide which is available at http://download-uk.oracle.com/docs/cd/B34956_01/current/acrobat/120oaig.pdf

What should I do if I don’t have Linux Operating system as well ?
If you don’t have Linux O.S. you can install it on any other operating system (CD’s mentioned above are for linux download according to your O.S. ). If you are curious to install it on Linux you can download linux from http://edelivery.oracle.com/linux

Do I need to Install any other software before Oracle Apps R12 Installation ?
On Unix/Linux you don’t need to install any other software (You should have all required o.s. packages as mentioned in above installation guide) but as you don’t need to install JDK prior to Apps R12 install (with 11i you have to install JDK prior to installing Apps)
For windows you still need other software like mks toolkit (cygwin my recommendation for test server), VC++

User & Mount point/File system
I will recommend two user install (one for database tier & another for middle tier also called as application tier) Though you can install both database tier & application tier under same operating system user. For Vision Instance you need around 161 GB (133GB for database & 28 GB for application tier) space . For instance without dummy data you need 73 GB space (45GB DB & 28GB application tier)

CPU & RAM
For testing Installation you can try as low as single CPU (1.6 GHz) and 1GB RAM (This was spec of my laptop where I installed for testing purpose, You can try with low configuration as well)

Staging Area

Its good idea to create staging area using script adautostg.pl available in Start Here CD. Refer to Page 30 of above Installation Guide. Advantage with staging area is that after start CD you don’t have to manually insert CD’s and Installer will automatically pick next CD from staging Area. You can pass on configuration setting on first 3-4 screens & once installer starts you can sleep & next day morning you can see complete installation. In case of any failure or subsequent installations (If you have to install more than one Instance its always better to install using Staging Area)

Hi,

I’m installing now R12 on linux redhat 4 machine. i have enough space (175GB FREE). I ran the RapidWiz and it was interrupted. When i checked the log it looks like this
< <
Enter the location of the CD labeled Oracle Applications Rapid Install – Databases Disk 1 :

Checking Disk contents in – /mnt/temp/StageR12/startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz
Checking Disk contents in – /mnt/temp/StageR12/oraAppDB/Disk1
Checking Disk contents in – /mnt/temp/StageR12/oraAppDB/Disk1

Unzip Count:195

Processing Disk1….
….2..3.4….10

Processing Disk11….

Unzip Failed:

Unable to complete install of database
>>

When i checked Disk11 in the stage area, it has many zip files. I did UNZIP -T to test the zip files and i found this corrupted one:

–> unzip -t data_dat1172.zip
Archive: data_dat1172.zip
testing:
tx_data51.dbf bad CRC
50fdc778 (should be defcddda)
At least one error was
detected in data_dat1172.zip.
!!!!

Zip tool version is: UnZip 5.51

I’m trying to replace it by the same file from the original DVDs but couldn’t dind it. Should I manage to unzip it manually? If yes, will it work ?

Appreciate your help

Firas,
From where you staged CD ? (downloaded or from Oracle’s DVD pack) source or while staging zip might be corrupted . Unzip manually or download this CD again from edelivery

Firas says March 2, 2007

Hi Atul,
I created the Stage area from DVDs pack from Oracle.

i tried to unzip the file manually, it created the file but is it a valid one as when i tested the zip file (post above) I gor a BAD CRC problem ??
Could i keep the current stage area and change only the oraAppDB/Disk11 ?? How ??

Please advise
Thanks

Hi again,

Actually i have unzipped the file manually and the rapidwiz continued. Now when it reached the post-install checks screen, there was a problem in the database availability. When i tried to open the database, i got this error im alert.log:

ORA-00202: control file: ‘/u01/oracler12/db/apps_st/data/cntrl01.dbf’
ORA-27037: unable to obtain file status

Additional information: 3
Fri Mar 2 23:20:02 2007
ORA-205 signalled during: ALTER DATABASE MOUNT…

I really can’t find the control files in the data directory or anywhere!!!

Now i’m doing egrep to fetch the stage area zip files and get them from there. Is that OK?

Any ideas?
Please advise.

Thanks a lot in advance
Firas
Any ideas

Atul Kumar says March 3, 2007

Firas,
This should not be the case , I did installation after downloading CD’s from edelivery & it went smooth . You can try copying cntrol file from staging area.

Make sure your prereq. steps are done & you have required zip & other operating system RPM’s

Firas says March 3, 2007

Hi Atul,

Thanks for taking time to reply.

I have done all the pre-steps required. Anyway i’ll double check and see. Then i will update this post

Thanks a lot

Firas says March 3, 2007

Hi Atul,

Actually i downloaded all required rpms but when i tried to install them. It failed ( Install and upgrade as well) because of conflict with old ones.

Please notice that i have Vision 11.5.10.2 Vision on this server too. Now all old vision processes including DB are down to install R12.

Anyway, it seems that one of the files in the DVDs is corrupted. That’s why i started staging again using new DVDs pack. Of course i have to clean and restart as you said. Hopefully it will work.

Appreciate your help Atul.

Hi Atul,

My Qn:
Regarding R12 installation:
In the PC first you installed Windows-Vista, then installed VMware so it become virtual-machine, then you installed LINUX under the Virtual-machine, then R12 installed under LINUX.

Could you tell me this system is become dual-booting?

When we start the system, is it wait for to select Win or Linux, or Virtual Machine?

Also,
Why you installed R12 under VMware? Is it for RAC environment?

Thanks and Regards,

Jo.

I installed VMWare on top of windows operating system & in windows operation system using VMware I created a linux virtual machine (So this is not dual boot) Boot is single only i.e. Windows. each time I start my machine on windows then start VMware software from programs on windws & then start linux machine on this VM software . Advantage of installing this way is that I got windows & linux at same time & I prefer apps on linux

Hi Kumar.

I have installed apps 12 on my laptop using external hard disk as u explained.

I have laptop 1 => windows vista (internal HDD) => VM Ware (internal HDD) = > linux 32 (external HDD) => apps R12 (external HDD).

I have laptop 2 => windows vista (internal HDD) => VM Ware (internal HDD).

1.Can I use my External HDD to run apps 12 using my Laptop 2?

OR

2.If I plug my External HDD onto another Laptop with VM Ware will it work? If YES what configurations are required?

Reply
Atul Kumar says March 30, 2007

Yes you can provided you copy virtual linux server configuration file & virtual disk (If any of this is on laptop1)

If virtual server configuration file and harddisk file are on external hard disk then connect HDD to laptop 2 and then create linux virtual machine on laptop 2 using configuration file created on laptop 1 .

For more info check VMware site on how to move virtual machine across server

Hi all!

Stupid Question: if I install the whole “stuff” with the base directory in an external USB disk of my Linux box am I able to use it in another Linux box without further install?

In other words, does the installation remains confined ONLY in the BASE directory?

Many Thanks!

It will work as long as this is on virtual and virtaul linux machine is installed on external hard disk.

If this is actual machine with apps install on external hard disk it may not work when attaching it to other machine because of hostname and various other reason

I have seen this on my instance as well few times and in most of cases this happens if memory on your system is less as darabase SGA itself is 1 GB then memory is required for various other processes so no need to worry either increase memory on system or reduce sga and memory of various other components and try accessing apps http://host.domain:port (8000 for 0 port pool)

You have to first install VMware server & on that virtual linux on that linux install R12 .

I’m planning to install R12 on my vista laptop; I have 2 questions and would appreciate your expert opinion:

In a post on why you were installing R12 on vmware you said you preferred your instance on linux; Is it also because R12 is not compatible with Vista? It it is i’d like to install directly on Vista…..

Second, while trying to research the hard drive you mentioned, the “Western Digital WDG1C5000N My Book Premium Edition 500 GB USB 2.0/Firewire External Hard Drive” product details on Amazon say it is compatible with Windows 2000/XP – no mention of vista; And I’ve been seeing a lot of negative reviews of the WD 500G firewire product – Cnet is saying the write speeds are pretty low. Finally on Vista groups i have also been seeing some bugs with vista and firewire. How was your hard drive performance… At this point would you still recommend the product or suggest a newer product. WOuld you still recommend a firewire drive?

Many Thanks
Tom

Atul says February 10, 2008

Tom,
I prefer linux because for windows you need gnu make, VC++ plus other software moreover it is not certified on vista.

Installation on vmware is slow so I’ll not recommend to install on VM image. Try on direct linux or windows instead of VMware.

Nice Question Saurabh,
Right now I burn downloaded zip files in to DVD/CD and read that CD/DVD from VMware machine.

I am looking for solution to read file system installed on main operating system from guest (vmware) operating system. If I can find solution I’ll post on site, in mean time check vmware documentation at

Sauarbh says June 25, 2008

Hi Atul,

Burning DVDs is a cumbersome task. I tried using NERO to burn the image of the DVD in the downloaded sequence n used the same from VMware. It worked fine in case of autostage.pl but instead of that I was just thinking of FTPing the downloads in the structured manner.

My WSFTP worked after I installed the packages from Oracle Enterprise Linux CDs (i’m using OEL5, it’s same as RHEL4)

I hope this will also work.

Now you know error message

so check hits for similar error message like “opmnctl unlimited 0403-009” in metalink.

I think this can be related to ulimit.

Check if you did all prereq for R12 installation.

If you still can’t resolve issue raise it in forum http://teachMeOracle.com/forum dedicated to Apps DBA’s

Amr Rizk,
Did you look at metalink note I suggested above ?

Dear Atul
yes i look at it and i followed it. now we got new error message while trying to start opmn processes .
“Communication error with the OPMN server local port.
Check the OPMN log files”.
opmnctl: opmn start failed.

this error is not related to note you mentioned.its new error in opmn log files .

so please help me regarding this issue

Reply
Atul says August 14, 2008

Good, so you are a step further.

This message is not enough to debug. Check error message in opmn.log (there should be two opmn, one for 1012 & other for 1013) look for opmn.log in 1013

Also check if DB & DB listener is Up

Reply
Amr Rizk says August 15, 2008

Dear Atul
thank you for you help.
i checked opmn.log in 1013 as per your request.i found this error
“08/08/13 22:53:45 [ons-connect] Local connection 127.0.0.1,17006 invalid form factor”. then i tried to compare ports located in two conf files 1-opmn.xml and 2-ons.conf
i did not find any ons.conf located in 1013 only located in 1012 home “./apps/tech_st/10.1.2/opmn/conf/ons.conf”
when i opened this file ons.conf here’s output

$ more ./apps/tech_st/10.1.2/opmn/conf/ons.conf
nodes=appaix02.us.oracle.com:15007
our server name is nmcebs01 and port used in opmn.xml “17006”

its fresh installation on AIX server and we never name it as appaix02
so please help me

Amr Rizk says August 15, 2008

Dear Atul
i searched for same cases in metalink with no use . noone face this error during installation for R12 . so if you can help me you will much appearciated

Reply
Atul says August 15, 2008

Well ons.conf is no more in use from 10.1.3 . I have seen this error “invalid form factor” in past but that was for stand alone 10g Application Server.

To move furter

1. Confirm that Database & Database listener for r12 is up

2. Then shutdown all services on middle tier R12 (adstpall.sh)

3. Clear log files from log directory

4. Start middle tier services R12 (adstrtal.sh)

5. Check logs again

Now raise it in forum http://teachMeOracle.com/forum with error message in log file.

Hello

I am trying to install R12 on a linux machine(ubuntu). I staged everything in a stage folder and tried to start the installation. But rapidwiz is not coming up with GUI windows ?? What could be the issue. I can start my xterm directly from my my linux terminal without any issue.

Thanks.

Check under /tmp

gowri says October 20, 2008

Thanks for the response Atul.
I did check that but I don’t see any error message. I will try to look once again. No error message displayed on the screen. I did put some debug messages in the script. And all checks are passed and it is going upto invoking JAVACMD line in the runWizard.sh script. I am running without WAIT so I am getting the control back immediately. Even I tried with -waitforreturn argument also but it is waiting for ever and no GUI cameup.

Thanks.

Where is DISPLAY pointing to ?

Can you run xclock and see clock ?

You should see directory like /tmp/MMDDHHSS like for 22 oct 19:11

/tmp/10221911

Is that directory available on Unix/Linux ?

Hi,
I installed R12 on Linux Oracle Enterprise 5 on VMware. I did it successfully except that post installation checks failed. HTTP and few other checks failed. After reading some articles it suggested to install some rpms on the Linux. I did that. But now when type
rapidwiz -restart it asks for a configuration file. If i provide servername.domain.VIS:port then it says cannot read from database. And i dont know where the configuration file is. Can you pls help me understand how can i restart rapidwiz and check if post installation checks are successfull or not.

Thanks

Reply
Atul says November 4, 2008

Configuration file should be there in format SID_hostname.txt in /tmp and database ORACLE_HOME directory.

so select full path of that directory. If you can’t find that file update here with hostname & SID (used in first attempt) and I’ll give you exact location.

mkumar183 says November 4, 2008

Hi Atul,

Thanks much for your help. I actually found it in /tmp/10260341/conf_VIS.txt .. there is no file by name VIS_localhost.txt in the entire machine i did a find. All files are VIS_localhost.xml. which rapidwiz does not read. But i have provided this file as conf file and rapidwiz has restarted the installation. Will get back to you if need help. Thanks for your help onthis.

Hi Atul,

I am trying to install Linux on VMWare on my Dell Laptop. While installing I am getting following error “An error occured – no vallid devices were found on which to create new file systems. Please check hardware for this cause of thie problem. ”

I did not get correct pointers to resolve except for it might be related to the type of hard drive which SCSI in my case.

I am using 64-bit installation.

Please let me know if you have an idea on this as I am unable to proceed with R12 installation.

RW-50010 Error while installing

Steps followed for creating the staging

1) Downloaded the necessary zip files from oracle edelivery
2) Did an scp from windows box to linux box using winscp
3) Copied the files to a location like say /root/binaries
4) Unzipped the files under this location and created the staging area – things are fine so far
5) started the rapidwiz to install – got the following error

RW-50010: Error: – script has returned an error: 126
RW-50004: Error code received when running external process. Check log file for
details.
Running Database Install Driver for PROD instance
with some permission denied error

6) checked all permissions as the error says permission error

– checked to see if we are running RapidWiz as root user
– checked to see if write/read permission on the Stage area (chmod -R 777 Stage r12)
– checked to see applmgr and oracle users are members of group “dba”
– checked to see if Group “dba” is the “default” group for the applmgr and oracle users
– checked to see if The target directory (where you install the application/database) permission is set properly
– checked to see if the “group owner” of the target directory is changed from “root” to “dba”

everything is fine – still getting the same error

now the solution (guess that is how adautostg.pl script builds up the staging structure)

solved problem…Let me explain what i did:

My stage folder was under “/root” directory…
i just used mv command and copied it under “/” and problem is solved!

Muthu,
You first need to remove (uninstall) conflicting RPM’s and then install required RPM’s and finally install RPM’s which you uninstalled

option 2: Select all RPM’s at time of OEL5

Option 3: use OEL 4.4 and higher (not 5) and select all RPM’s at time of OEM installation. It worked for me

Reply
Muthu says April 7, 2009

Thanks Atul, I will try the same on

“Enterprise Linux Release 4 Update 7 Media Pack v1 for x86 (32 bit) ”

But during the installation will all RPM be in installation cds itself. I am under the impression that the prescribed RPMs(of Metalink Note: 402310.1) should be downloaded from
RPMsearch.com or google separately and installed.

Is this at time of checks (before start of installation) or after start of installation (1% or more)

If this is before start of installation and at time of install checks then create “inst” directory including subdirectory and change ownership to applmgr (or user for application tier) user

My RW200019 error was a network problem. The etc/host file was cause of this issue.

Change the ip address from the default one 127.0.1.1 to someother # and follow the same format of ip localhost.locadomain localhost.

ping the address and hostname if both are successfull this problem does not occur

Sometimes the file downloaded from edelivery shows all the folders in windows but not in Linux or when I unzip. why does this occur and how can this be avoided.

Hello people,

I’m not sure if this is a lame question to ask, are the R12 & 11i installation files free to download from e-delivery? If so is there a fixed time trial period ? I saw that there was some license agreement on the e-delivery site regarding a 30 day trial period or something.
I just need this for learning purposes (Is the VIS instance database also available along with the download ?)

Reply
Atul Kumar says May 7, 2009

@Natarajan,
Yes R12 & 11i downloads are free you need to register once .

Is the VIS instance database also available along with the download ?

Yes, You have option to select fresh database or vision database (default) during install

Hi Atul,

I have installed Oracle R12 on my desktop with configuration (2GB, 220GB harddrive). The os is rhel 5. Application is up, however, when I open any form, I get the message, ‘additional plugins are required to display all media’.

For oracle 11i on rhel 4 we used the foll:
#cd /
#rpm -ivh j2sdk1_4_2………rpm
#cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugin
#ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.4…../jre/plugins/i386/ns610_gcc/lib
#cd /apps/viscomn/html/bin
#vi appsweb_VIS.cfg
#
#update to 1.4.2 from 1.4.2_04 at two places
#cd /apps/visappl/fnd/11.5.0/resource
#vi appsweb_VIS_.cfg
#
#update to 1.4.2 from 1.4.2_04 at two places
#restart application services and database.

What change should be made in the above? Please assist.

Hi Atul,

I have installed oracle enterprise linux on vmware. While executing the adautostg.pl script for staging, I get the error insufficient space – requires 21gb but has only 11gb space.

The laptop has 300gb hard disk space. But how to increase the space for linux in vmware?

Regards,

Jack

Reply
Atul Kumar says June 13, 2009

@Jack,
Use below steps to add another 250GB disk to virtual machine

1. Shutdown Virtual machine (Linux)
2. Using vmware add another virtual disk of 250GB to virtual machine (Linux)
3. start virtual machine (Linux)
4. fdisk -l to see new disk (it should look like /dev/sdb or /dev/sdc)
5. Format new disk like fdisk /dev/sdb or fdisk /dev/sdc

6. Now use new disk as staging area or installation space for r12

We want to install Oracle EBS 12.1.1 on dual node.
The application server is on RHEL Advanced Server 4 Update (32-bit).
The database Server is on RHEL Advanced Server 4 Update (64-bit).

Please let me know what media should be downloaded from edelivery site. We have two options:

1. Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 Media Pack for Linux x86
2. Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 Media Pack for Linux x86-64-bit

My doubt is:
1. Whether it is possible to install Linux x86 software on 64 bit machine? If yes, do we need to upgrade the database to 64 bit? How to achieve the same.
2. Is it required that both the nodes are on same level?

1. Whether it is possible to install Linux x86 software on 64 bit machine? If yes, do we need to upgrade the database to 64 bit? How to achieve the same.

Yes, its possible to install Linux x86 on 64 bit machine. In my opinion install Linux x86-64 kernel (O.S.) on Database Server and Linux x86 on Middle tier .

Then use 12.1.1 Media Pack for Linux x86-64-bit on Database tier and 12.1.1 Media Pack for Linux x86 on Middle tier .

2. Is it required that both the nodes are on same level?

No, you can run database and middle tier on different instruction set machine . You can also run them in to completely different O.S. like one on Linux and other on Solaris (This is called as split configuration)

I am trying to install Oracle Applications R12 on my external hard drive with a direct installation of Linux on my laptop.

I am not sure of the configuration of the Host file. The last time I was trying to install R12 the host file contained “one line” of entry with the hostname and domain name. I ran into the services not starting problem post installation.
I deleted everything and starting it again with a new installation of Linux on my laptop ( stupid move, but did due to frustration)
Since I have a bad history in installation, I want to ask this question – should there be 2 lines or 1 line.
e.g.
2 lines
127.0.0.1 hostname.domain hostname and 127.0.0.1 erp.oracle.com erp

or
1 line
127.0.0.1 erp.oracle.com erp

Anandha says July 4, 2009

muthu,
there are two main reasons why you get this error
1) Insufficient RAM on you laptop ( you should have atleast 2gb ram and should have allocated atleast 1.5gb to your vm)

2) second reason is

libdb.so.2 file is required in the process of starting HTTP server.
It comes with compat-db …..rpm from linux.
In RHEL5 or OEL5 the version of compat-db is 4.2.52-5.1 and it doesnt install the libdb.so.2.
And this is may be the cause of this error. so uninstall the compat-db-4.2.52-5.1.i386.rpm and install compat-db-4.1.25-9.i386.rpm.

Hope this helps
Thanks

@Muthu,
If there was no errors during installation (and problem is only during post install checks)then you can simply restart R12 services and try again.

Try increasing memory to 3 or 3.5 GB on VM for R12 (database SGA size if quite big)

If there were issues during installation then fix issues (check logs to find cause of issue)

This could be because of missing kernel settings

Ensure that you have followed kernel setting mentioned in metalink note

other reasons could be

1. File system type is not one supported by Apache/OHS

Software for Linux X-86 is different from 64 bit so please download 64 bit one if you are planning to install it on Linux 64 bit machine.

Atul Kumar says February 25, 2010

@ Sasidhar, Forms for R12 should work from OEL . All you need is JRE 1.6 on browser on OEL (like Mozilla) which should come from apps r12 during first time forms access.

For accessing Linux VM from windows machine configure these two machines (guest Linux and Host windows on same subnet )

Lets assume IP of Windows is 192.168.1.X then configure IP of Linux as 192.168.1.Y and then try to ping Linux machien from windows

Hi Atul,
Thanks for the reply- I cant see my posting above, so I have included your reply..

Sorry for the confusion- let me explain what I am trying to do. I already have 64-bit apps media, that I intend to install on 64 bit linux. My question was – is it possible to
create the stage on a 32 bit linux server and then use that stage to install on 64 bit?

Atul Kumar says February 25, 2010

@userjp,
I don’t think staging 64 bit software on 32 bit linux machine should create any issues .

You should be able to stage 64 bit apps on 32 bit linux machine and then mount this stage area to 64 bit linux and install on 64 bit Linux

Hi Atul,

I installed linux on the vmware. During installation two users were created, but when i login by either of these users they have only 444 permissions and I am unable to update these permissions.

I wanted to create staging area and proceed further for R12 installation, but I am not sure how to proceed.

Also do we have to ftp all the zip files to linux server before we proceed to run the adautostg.pl script

Thanks, Manrpeet

Hi,
I installed r12.1.1 on Linux OEL 4.5 using vmware, i have allocated 3 GB ram to guest OS. I was getting post installation errors. To rectify those, I reduced SGA & PGA to 700M, started DB and Listener manually, clear log files, run adstrtal.sh and then pressed retry button on post install wizard dialog, all services (DB, Config upload, DBC, Env file, HTTP, Help page, and Virtual Directory) started. the only error I am getting now is of JSP and Login page and is below:
JSP is not responding, waiting 15 seconds and retesting
this error coming 5 times and instead of taking 15 seconds it almost takes 15 minutes to respond for next message.
Any Help will be highly appreciated.

Many Thanks

@ Furqan,
How much memory you have on system ?

Click on retry ?

Check if all services are up and running ? If not start them manually.

Things to check
1. If database is up and accessible
2. DB Listener is up and listening
3. Check middle tier services specially web server and OC4J’s

adopmnctl.sh[cmd] status

Hi Atul,

I installed R12.1.1 on OEL 5.5 on vmware as per the installation instructions and the installation also finished successfully. I can see the EBS login page BUT when I enter the login credentials, it doesn’t allow me to get inside. It doesn’t give any error. I used SYSADMIN/SYSADMIN and couple of other logins but all failed.
I did some debugging and checked many log files incliuding Apache but couldn’t find anything suspicious.

I performed the following debugging –

1)Applied latest Autoconfig patch – 7651166 –> Ran Autoconfig successfully at both DB and Apps tier —> started all the services -adstrtal.sh —-> same result.
2)Recompiled JSP –> changed Justrun to Recompile in context file —> Ran Autoconfig successfully at both DB and Apps tier —> started all the services -adstrtal.sh —-> same result.
3)Enabled Debug—> couldn’t notice anything suspicious in any of the log files—no errors etc.
4) No error log in Apache; access log gets updated as intended..etc

What should I check now?

Thanks for your reply Atul.

I have already tried that but no success.

I guess the issue is somewhere in the vmware image as vmware is not certified by oracle.
I would probably need to turn on or off “something” in vmware.
I did try to install it on Windows 2003 server vmware image but faced same issue.
And as per your post, you successfully installed this on vmware so probably I am missing something somewhere.
Can you pls highlight anything that I should be taking care of?

4. Start installation using root user from R12_software/startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz/rapidwiz

Hi,

I was curious if you have had experience with Oracle E-Business Suite on and Amazon Ec2 instance. They have prepackaged AIMs for E-biz. I was able to successfully configure and get both apps tier and db tier running, but when accessing the login page, nothing was rendering to the browser. I used the public dns address to access the login page.

http://ec2-xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx.compute 1.amazonaws.com/OA_HTML/AppsLogin

I used Metalink 1205963.1 to set things up, but I’m not able get the front end to show. Any clues? There are number of things the the document advise that I do such as such change the private ip to the public ip address for the login page and use port 80 for the http listening port.
