Install Oracle 11i (11.5.10.2) on Linux

In today’s post I will cover things you need to install Oracle Apps 11i (11.5.10.2) on Linux.

Software
1. Software for Oracle 11i can be downloaded from edelivery.oracle.com(46 zip files) or you can order disks via metalink account.
2. Unzip these files and this should create five directory startCD, oraAppDB, oraApps, oraDB, oraiAS

O. S. Requirement
1.  Linux Package : make sure you have ar, gcc, g++, ld, ksh, make, X Display Server
2. Disk Space : 26 GB for Application Tier & 65 GB for Vision Database (31 GB for fresh database). Hence total 57 GB for fresh DB & 91 GB for Vision Instance.
3. If you are installing apps 11.5.10.2 from Staging area you need another 24GB (No need if you are doing install from inserting CD’s on prompt)
4. O.S. User : Create two operating system user, avis11i (Application Tier) & ovis11i (Database Tier) both belonging to group DBA. You can use single user as well for both Application Tier & Database Tier
5. JDK : No need to install JDK 1.4.2 on solaris, Linux or windows as 11i Installer will install it. For other operating system you need to install JDK 1.4.2 
6. For full list of RPM’s required on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Visit Metalink Note # 303859.1

Things you must do/know before installation
A) set environment variable LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.19 for root user
B) gcc -v  (Should be of version 3.2.x) For any other version
mv /usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/gcc.orig
mv /usr/bin/g++ /usr/bin/g++.orig
ln -s /usr/bin/i386-redhat-linux-gcc32 /usr/bin/gcc
ln -s /usr/bin/i386-redhat-linux-g++32 /usr/bin/g++

C) If your installation fail some time restart installation by option restart like 
rapidwiz -restart
D) If you try to access apps from linux machine from browser other than Mozilla (like KDE)you will get error message that “You have insufficient privileges for current operation
E) Installer should be started from root user

Starting Installation 
1. Go to Staging directory /stage_location/startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz/
2. ./rapidwiz
3. Create base directory under which you wish to install database & apps tier with proper permission (owner) (Five main directory – [SID]appl,[SID]comn,[SID]ora owned by application user (avis11i) & [SID]db, [SID]data owned by database o.s. user (ovis11i) )
 
Post Install
1. Set environment variable in O.S. user profile
/install_base/[sid]appl/APPSORA.env   (For Application Tier User, avis11i)
/install_base/[sid]db/SID_hostname.env   (For Application Tier User, ovis11i)

2. For start/stop services of Oracle Apps 11i visit
11i Startup/Shutdown Scripts

Error/Issues during 11i Install 
Issue :
RW-50004: Error code received when running external process. Check log file for details. Running Database Install Drivers for VIS Database

Check Logsat : $install_base/[sid]db/9.2.0/appsutil/log/[SID]_[hostname]/MMDDHHMM.log

1. Please manually change the permissions on both files:
‘chmod -R 755 adrunias.sh’
‘chmod -R 755 adrunat.sh’

2. Restart the rapidwiz

How do we mention the location of the .env files if the .bash_profile for both Apps and Oracle Users after installing the 12R.Please let me have clear picture of the same with an example

Thanks

Hi Atul

I was successful with the Installation of 12R on linux 4.0 Ent OS.But I have been struggling on the post installation steps .No proper guidence is given in any of the manuals on these aspects .I wish you could help me on these steps

Thanks

Surya

Atul Kumar says December 21, 2007

Surya,
For R12 post install steps do these
– set env variable; call env file in application and database (at o.s.) level
– Create custom startup/shutdown scripts
– Take backup

For calling env file , env file for Application Tier is under APPL_TOP and for Database Tier its under $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil so call it in .bash_profile or .profile (depending your shell) like

. /location_of_env_file_name.env

Check if you can create files in these directories with appropriate users.

Ensure you have done all prereq steps like /etc/hosts entry and hostname output

If you still hit this issue kindly raise SR with oracle support

Hi Atul,
I am appsdba and need your thought.
Node A:Oracle E-bus Middle Tier (Application_Tier).
Node B:Database sits here (Oracle 9.2.0.8)

I need to configure Oracle E-bus 11.5.10.2 instance without database,and it sholuld point to my existing datbase (Core Oracle 9.2.0.8 database).and it should act as Oracle E-bus Instance,as we are not having access to Oracle database.

Please help me out.

Thanks

Atul says May 7, 2008

JP,
Your doubt is not clear. Did you mean you want to use exiting 9.2.0.8 database (Non E-Business Suite DB) with exisitng/non existing middle tier ?

This is not possible, you have to either clone from existing e-business suite database or install fresh/vision e-business database

Bicky,
If you are trying to access apps 11i from linux machine then you need to first configure forms to use java plugin (This is by default set to jinitiator in 11i & java plugin in R12) then configure jre in mozilla browser

http://onlineappsdba.com/index.php/2007/10/12/access-oracle-apps-r12-11i-from-linux-client-mozilla-firefox/

Note for 11i you might have to do some additional steps

Else access 11i from windows machine connected to network

This could be related to your compat-libcwait package being the wrong version or missing.

Sure sorry got carried away.

I had libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2 missing so downloaded a later version from http://www.sqldesktop.com/download/libstdc++-2-libc6.1-1-2.9.0.so. I copied the file into /usr/lib directory and created a link.

$ sudo ln -s libstdc++-2-libc6.1-1-2.9.0.so libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2

seems to have sorted it out.

Update.

I have am having the following error which is probably causing my installer to stop:

error while loading shared libraries: libdb.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or
directory

Does anyone know where I can get libdb.so.3? for Ubuntu?

Thanks

woah Atul. You are an APPS ninja! Very impressive.

Here’s our problem. We’re can’t seem to get the apps (11.5.10.2) to run on RHEL5.2. (Linux hyper.stall3.com 2.6.18-92.el5PAE #1 SMP Tue Apr 29 13:31:02 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux)

adconfig.sh fails with the following error message:

“/u01/app/oracle/boomercomn/util/jr e/1.1.8/bin/../lib/i686/gre en_threads/libzip.so: sy mbol errno, version GLIBC_2.0
not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference (libzip.so)
Unable to initialize threads: cannot find class java/lang/Thread
Could not create Java VM”

Oracle has been working an ESC SEV 2 SR for this for over a month with no solution in sight.

We confirmed it’s not a LD_ASSUME_KERNEL error.

This chap ran into the same error with DISCO 4i on Linux5 and resolved it by changing his environment. Unfortunately, we have no idea what needs to be modified for our environment.

Yikes,
I am not sure if 11.5.10.2 is certified with linux 5.

Is this problem during installation or after installation (which running autoconfig)

If after installation @

Problem seems (not sure) adconfig.sh using JRE instead of JDK

Check following environment variables

AF_JRE_TOP
AFJVAPRG
AF_CLASSPATH

set environment variable for application tier user and run

env | grep

They should point to JDK and not JRE

woah. That was quick Atul. Thank-you. To answer your questions:
1) yes 11.5.10.2 is cert for RHEL5.2. Verified on metalink and part of SR
2) we are migrating from Solaris to Linux. 2-Tier. The 10g db tier is working great.
3) The environment variables for applmgr show the following:
AF_JRE_TOP=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_18
AFJVAPRG=/u01/app/oracle/boomercomn/util/jre/1.1.8/bin/jre

erora/8.0.6/forms60/java:/u01/app/oracle/boomercomn/java

4)Solaris to Linux migrate requires the following on Linux;

./adconfig.sh run=INSTE8_SETUP contextfile=
Note: This command does not require the environment to be sourced.

This fails with:

Everything looks OK except AFJVAPRG

Try setting it to JAVA (jdk) instead of JRE and try again

like

Thank you! We pointed all Oracle installed jre programs/environments to the Sun jdk/jre/bin/java and the migration is moving forward. Thanks again!! We’ll update the SR and let oracle know they need to update their apps migration documentation.

1. Edit the 9i_redbms_oracle_home/appsutil/bin/adgetlnxver.sh file as below
2. Alter by replacing all occurances of LD_ASSUME_KERNEL with XD_ASSUME_KERNEL
3. Press the retry button in rapidwiz screen

For more information Check Metalink Note # 747424.1

Atul,

I am trieing to install 11.5.10.2 on OEL R5 and also had the issue with LD_ASSUME_KERNEL – however doing the advice in note 747424.1 seemed to fix it (I had already found the note before I checked this blog).

However – I am now getting a problem later on when starting CVM server -it has just fung.

Checking logs it would seem to be issue in note 294043.1. – it can’t find libdb.so.3 in the logs.

However – I don’t understand their solution. According to the package manager I already have compat-db – 4.2.52-5.1.i386.rpm installed (which is presumably one that came with OEL 5 media – I can’t remember now).

I am a bit of a Linux newbie – where should this libdb.so.3 be? Has the rpm not been installed correctly?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Rob

Reply
Atul Kumar says November 15, 2008

Which script you are using to start CVM server ?

Run this command to check compat-db version

rpm -qa | grep compat-db

Also check
ldd

to find missing .so file

Hi Atul,
I installed an Oracle 11.5.10.2 on OEL5 R2, but during the post-installation check, gave me 3 errors (HTTP, PHP and JSP)

Search Metalink potential errors, and there I read that the problem is that Discoverer 4i to 11i has no support since 2006, so you should upgrade to version 10g.

But then it occurred to me if I could try to access the server through the following URL http://ebs.e45:8000, and I could.

You may skip the step of the upgrade? It is an environment for testing.

Please ask your help with this, and I apologize for my English.

Greetings.

Reply
Atul Kumar says May 7, 2009

Juan,
No issue is not at all related to Discoverer. You received error for HTTP, PHP and JSP which suggests either apache (webserver) is not up or failed to start or installation failed at some point .

Do following checks –
1. check if you can connect to database from middle tier

sqlplus apps/@

If this works

2. Check if Apache is up and there are no issues as Jserv

netstat -an | grep 8000

check logs at $IAS_ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Apache/logs/error_log

$IAS_ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Jserv/logs/*

$IAS_ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Jserv/logs/jvm/*

I am not sure if you need to be on specific gcc version on OEL 5 but for OEL 4 you need to ensure

A) set environment variable LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.19 for root user
B) gcc -v (Should be of version 3.2.x) For any other version
mv /usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/gcc.orig
mv /usr/bin/g++ /usr/bin/g++.orig
ln -s /usr/bin/i386-redhat-linux-gcc32 /usr/bin/gcc

check directory permission for

These should be owned bu oracle user (or user you entered for database during installation) and NOT root

also check if there is any system logs in /var/log/messages

Can we install the database at a later stage after installing the apps ?

No during installation of application tier , it expect database to be up and running, However instead of install if you select upgrade option (from installer) this will lay down only middle tier (including technology stack and appl_top ).

Is it possible to install the VIS database to an existing 11i system ?

Yes you can install VIS database (apps) to a machine already hosting 11i system (port and SID should be different)

Reply
JN says May 30, 2009

Another question Atul, which version of Oracle Linux are you using for the apps installation?
When I downloaded apps from e-delivery only version R12.1.1 was available so I thought I might as well go with the latest version of oracle linux (release 5 update 3). The problem is like I couldn’t get the OS to read an external hard disk (but the ext-HDD was recognized by Oracle Linux 4.5 & Windows). But somehow the drive showed up on fdisk -l command in the terminal, so I mounted it to a folder on the root directory & got it to work but the speed is no where near to the same disk operating on Windows or Linux 4.5, (R12.1.1 has been staged in this ext HDD from which the install now seems to take forever, its been installing for like 17 hours now & its not over yet). It also recognizes all cd’s or dvd’s as a blank cd with unknown file system type, unknown size & doesn’t open them. Are these, the USB ext-HDD and blank cd problems known issues for which solutions are available?

I used Oracle Enterprise Linux 4 update 4

Are you using vmware or installing linux directly on external hard disk .

If installing linux directly on external hard disk are there drivers available from hard disk vendor for linux.

Hi Atul, thanks for help me.
After to review the installation updates for OEL5, i could see that was necesary apply the patch 6365595 to unset the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL variable, and something very important it’s coment the lines 122-125 of the file $STAGE_TOP/startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz/bin/runWizard.sh; then, i have succes on the installation.
Right now i have a problem. I would like connect from a remote pc (xp) to the database inside of a LAN, using TOAD, but i get the next message: “ORA-12537: TNS: conection close”. What could be?
I complete all the post installation steps, and i search on the OTN and web something related with that, but, i dont find nothing.
Can help me again?

Check sqlnet.ora in $ORACLE_HOME/ network/ admin/ $CONTEXT_NAME (on database tier) comment these three lines and restart listener

TCP.VALIDNODE_CHECKING
TCP.EXCLUDED_NODES
TCP.INVITED_NODES

If this is still an issue check network logs at $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin/[SID].log

Hi Atul, tnks for the helpful.
Yesterday i change the sqlnet.ora file on /d01/oracle/visdb/9.2.0/network/admin/, i change the value of the line tcp.validnode_checking = yes by tcp.validnode_checking = no after to add the client on Host from OAM.
That works.

Hi Atul,

The rapidwiz errors with the following log message:-
____

There was an error while running the command – su oracle -c /u01/apps/oracle/visdb/9.2.0/tem/VIS_visonapps/adrun9i.sh APPS APPS
….bin/sqlplus: No such file or directory

The gcc version is 3.4.6.

Should the version be 3.2.3. Is this the correct method to resolve this issue?

Also, if I have to remove the current version of gcc and install 3.2.3, how is this done?

Thanks, I was able to complete the installation.

However, after entering the link is not opening the login page. The log file generated after installation says “Login page responding…”

Hi Atul,

After following the comments for gcc version on “June 20th, 2009 at 7:17 am”, I did a ./rapidwiz -restart. The installation completed successfully and for a brief time was able to open the login page and login. But my system had to abruptly re-started and after that the login page can not be opened. I’m able to ping to the host name but not able to connect to database or login page.

Hi

I tried stopping and starting the services using adstpall.sh and adstrtal.sh, but it did not work.

Then I tried running adautocfg.sh script. Now when I try to start the services using adstrtal.sh it gives the error:-

AC-10006: Exception – oracle.xml.parser.v2.XMLParseException: Unexpected EOF…Line 755 column 1

Checked the xml file, One of the tags “<oa_process type=apache_restrict …” was not completed.

Even after placing a closing tag for this it gives the same error “Unexpected EOF..”

@ Jack,
There is no need to run Autoconfig

1. Start Database and DB listener
2. Ensure that you can connect to apps/ from middle tier
3. Start Middle tier Services

If this fails check startup logs and apache logs as mentioned above.

It seems your XML file is corrupt, recreate it using adbldxml.sh

Hi Atul,

I followed the above steps. Now I’m able to connect to database from applmgr account. However, when I start the middle tier services using adstrtal.sh, the Apache service script adapcctl.sh exits with status 3. The log file states “httpd: bad user name autobld1 … httpd could not be started”. All the other services are starting except for the Apache server.

Also, should the middle tier services be started only from applmgr account? Can it be done from root user as well? The above error is occuring for both user accounts.

Thanks,
Jack

Atul Kumar says June 25, 2009

@ Jack ,
Who owns middle tier file system (is this applmgr or autobld1 or someone else) ?

If you can’t fix this then this is now good time to run autoconfig (before running autoconfig ensure that you have good context/xml file on middle tier and you can connect to database from middle tier)

Hi Atul,

I modified the file httpd_pls.conf file which was referring to autobld1 user. Now I’m able to start the middle tier services as well and also able to connect to database from applmgr account.

But when I connect to applications login page it gives “Failed to connect …”error.

Hi Atul,
I have an multi node EBS 11.5.10.2 instace with DB 10.2.0.4.
I need to point the apps to another cloned db (from PDB to TDB), whitout kill the first one (PDB).
Could you recommend me sone note or doc to follow?
Just changuing the OAM parameter related with DB will work?

Reply
Atul Kumar says September 14, 2009

@ apps_dba

To understand your requirement , You have

1. Middle Tier & Database Tier for instance PDB
2. You have clone of PDB to TDB

Now you wish to point PDB Middle Tier to TDB Database .

If it is only this then simply run adcfgclone and reconfigure PDB Middle Tier to TDB Database.

Now your point without kill the first one is not clear to me .

Do you want to use 1 Middle Tier for both PDB and TDB database ?

If this is the case then I am not sure if this is possible in 11i , I know this is possible in R12 (using two different INST_TOP)

Reply
apps_dba says September 14, 2009

I have made a new DB (T).
Now I want test if the application run well in this one. But I dont want to change nothing in the original P
I want to stop P. Point the app (editing OAM and running autoconfig, or something like that) to T, and start T. Then test if T works fine and, change T by P and delete original P, or rollback autoconfig session.

Reply
Atul Kumar says September 15, 2009

Yes this is possible if T is clone of P

1. Take backup of context file (XML file) on middle tier
2. Clone context file to another XML file pointing to T database
3. Run Autoconfig using new context file (pointing to T database)
4. Restart Services
5. Access apps which is now pointing to T database

after testing – to repoint back to P database
6. Run autocnfig with original XML file
7. Restart application tier services

Sorry I am not a DBA and trying to install EBusiness11i on a vmware workstation so my question might sound very basic to you…

1. Which Linux should I download? Red Hat seems to be a 30 day trial license. I am looking for freeware.

2. Can you give me the list of software I should install on Linux Kernel…(e.g. any UI or other utilities that might come handy?). My knowledge of unix/linux is very limited.

3. Can the 64 bit linux run on a vmware workstation installed on a 32 bit machine?

4. If the answer to #3 above is yes, can I also install 64 bit version of EBusiness on top of it?

thanks a ton

@ Sam,

1. Which Linux should I download? Red Hat seems to be a 30 day trial license. I am looking for freeware.

Use Oracle Enterprise Linux 4 update 4 or higher (This is same as RedHat Linux 4 update 4 but with Oracle Logo)

Download freely (registration required) from http://edelivery.oracle.com/linux

2. Can you give me the list of software I should install on Linux Kernel…(e.g. any UI or other utilities that might come handy?). My knowledge of unix/linux is very limited.

Install Red Hat Linux 4 update 4 and higher (select all RPM’s while selecting packages ) I tried and it works

3. Can the 64 bit linux run on a vmware workstation installed on a 32 bit machine?

Yes , when you create virtual machine create it of type linux 64 bit

4. If the answer to #3 above is yes, can I also install 64 bit version of EBusiness on top of it?

Yes (I have not seen 32bit or 64bit of EBS . Database is 32bit or 64 bit but application tier is all still 32 bit . Yes you can install EBS in 64 bit of Linux

5. When the VMWare Workstation trial license expire after 30 days, does it stop working or are we not suppose to use it anymore?

It will stop working after 30 days so better use Vmware server which is free (no license required, I am using vmware server 2 and it works).

Hi Atul,
I have been struggling for almost 3 months to install Oracle Apps for learning purpose. The laptop that I purchased for this work is a 64bit processor with 4G RAM and 300G HD.

I am finally able to install R12(12.1.1)x86_64 on a Centos OS 64bit. I am just getting to have an idea of the filesystem, and the configuration files etc.

I am planning to uninstall R12, and install 11i (11.5.10 ?) first, and then do an upgrade to R12. This way, I am hoping to get a good understanding of all the DBA activities one will be involved.

Earlier when I tried to install 32bit R12 using 32bit Redhat or 32bit Centos, it did not work. May be because my laptop has a 64bit processor.

Can you please give me an idea of the OS and APPS versions that you recommend for me to install 11i and upgrade to R12, keeping in mind that I have a 64bit Laptop.

I have read in metalink that only 32bit version of Apps 11i works even on a 64bit processor. May this is a old note.

Please let me know if I have to go for a 32bit processor laptop. I can use vmware workstation to try multinode installation.

Thanks for all your help!!

It says please make sure JDK 1.4.2_04 is installed on your client and the same was done at the time of installation of EBS software. Well I had tried do the linking of j2sdk folder with /usr/lib/jvm and /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
and tried to open up. The browser(firefox) itself is getting closed and didn’t open up any form. I had checked the formsweb.cfg file
and got to the know entry is 1.4.2_14 only. So I had installed the correct JDK version only but, inspite of that, it is not opening up any form. Can you please throw any light.
Appreciate if you could explain step by step
for installation of JINIITIATOR or ADJBUILD etc. Btw, Oracle Applications Manager all of
the components are working as it is html based.
Appreciate your expeditious help. Last but not the least, am working with total 1GB memory and out of which only 792 mb is earmarked for VMWare. Is the memory causing the problem. I can’t upgrade the memory as the max memory capacity is just 1GB as it is a old
laptop. Hope I had provided all requisite information.

Regards,
Jay

Forgot to mention. After changes (viz. linking
ln -s to jvm and plugins) shutdown the apache,
forms and browser and restarted once again. End result is the same, the forms are not working.

Hi
We have a Oracle Apps. on solaris and we are using Jre for it
problem -> we are not able to run oracle apps on linux client.

@ winit,

You should be able to run self service pages but not forms (core applications) as Jinitiator is only for Windows.

For workaround on accessing apps from linux client

Hey there, Can someone please tell me how to install oracle 11g on linux in virtual machine, I tried to mount the oracle 11g with iso creator but no cd found in linux.Please help. :(

Reply
Atul Kumar says November 22, 2010

@ ArjunSingh,
You must copy 11g database software from host (winodows) machine to guest (linux) machine using winscp or ftp and then install database on linux.

Do let us know if you are looking for something else

there is a LD_ASSUME_KERNEL in adgetlnxver.sh. we need to comment the both LD_ASSUME_KERNEL PARAMETERS in that file. it resolved my RW-50004 issue.
whoever is installing 11.5.10.2 on OEL5.3, you might face issue RW-50004 during adrundb9i.sh.
GO TO THAT FILE AND edit all the LD-AS-KERN parameter and run
rapidwiz -restart.

Hi Atul,

We are planning to move Oracle Apps 11.5.10.2 to RHEL 4.7 (64 Bit version). As per Oracle application is not supported on RHEL 4.7 (64 Bit version).

I have seen one for the reply from you :

Atul Kumar said,in June 1st, 2010 at 8:14 am @ Sumit,
I couldn’t find this in certification list, But I know that it works. I am running similar configuration i.e. 11i (32 bit) on Red Hat 5 (64 bit). Try this and update in case of any issues (Just beware of GCC version) or check this post

This I got in Link:
http://onlineappsdba.com/index.php/2007/10/31/install-oracle-11i-115102-on-linux/

Just wanted to know if application really works on RHEL 64 Bit version? If yes how about Oracle support in case of any issues.

Thanks a ton in advance!

1) 1st installing Ebs 11i (11.5.10.0 64 bit for Linux : Base version 11.5.10.2 patch 3460000 : CU2)
2) Then we want to upgrade 11i (including DB migration if any) to R12.1.3

So I need the list of patches(Pre,installtion,post) that we need to apply during the course of EBS and post upgrade.

The problem is every one giving reference to documents. I need a specific list of patches. Please help.

Thanks,

Surya P
