In Last post I discussed about Installing VMware on your windows machine which we will use to install virtual Linux machine on your Windows PC or Laptop. On this Virtual Linux machine, We will finally Install Oracle Applications R12 (Note that Oracle Applications R12 is not supported/certified on VMWare but you can install for testing purporse) .
In today’s post I will install Oracle Enterprise Linux downloaded from eDelivery . Download first four CD’s (32 bit) & unzip them on your windows harddisk. I unzipped them under “c:\Atul\Downloads\Linux” directiry & extracted iso files. Start VMWAre from Start/Programs Menu & select Machine which we installed yesterday. On Menu bar click on
VM -> Settings (Ctrl + D) Select CD-ROM & under Connection select Use ISO Image as mentioned in Picture.
Once you select first iso image & click on “Start This Virtual Machine” , it will start Oracle Enterprise Linux Install on your Virtual Machine.
Select Installation type as Server
You can select Automatic Disk Partitioning but if you want to partition as per your needs you can choose Manual Partition.
Enter Hostname for your machine, I selected my site name i.e. teachMeOracle.com
When it prompts for second CD , From VM -> Settings , click on CD-ROM and change location to second iso file and then for third CD. Make sure installation completes successfully. In next post I am going to cover step by step Oracle Applications R12 Installation on Linux Virtual machine which you installed just now on your windows PC/Laptop. Make sure you have downloaded R12 Disks .
