In today’s post I am going to cover Installation of Oracle Fusion Applications Provisioning Framework which is first step for Fusion Applications Installation. Refer to my previous posts in series “Learn Oracle Fusion Applications with”  Oracle Fusion Applications Concepts ,  Install Oracle Fusion Applications in 10 Steps and Oracle Fusion Applications Framework Overview


0. Create User
Create operating system user fusionapps (This user will be used to install Fusion Applications)


1. Configure JDK

cd $software_unzip_loc/installers/jdk

unzip (This will create directory jdk6 which will be used as jreHome during installation )

2. Install Fusion Application Software

Login as user fusionapps and use below steps to install Fusion Applications Framework

a) cd $software_unzip_loc/installers/faprov/Disk1
b)./runInstaller -jreLoc $software_unzip_loc/installers/jdk/jdk6

3. Configure YUM to install missing RPMs on OEL 5 update 5

a) cd /etc/yum.repos.d

b) wget

c) open /etc/yum.repos.d/public-yum-el5.repo  and change  enabled=0 to enabled=1  for section

name=Enterprise Linux $releasever U5 – $basearch – base

name=Oracle Linux $releasever – U5 – x86_64 – base

I am installing Oracle Fusion Applications on Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 update 5

d) Install RPMs

yum install  sysstat
yum install  elfutils-libelf-devel
yum install  gcc
yum install  gcc-c++
yum install  glibc-devel
yum install  libaio-devel
yum install  libstdc++-devel

Checking for softnofiles=4096; softnofiles=1024.        Failed <<<<
Check complete. The overall result of this check is: Failed <<<<

a) Update /etc/security/limits.conf with entry like

fusionapps  hard nofile 4096
fusionapps  soft  nofile  4096

I am using user fusionapps to install Oracle Fusion Applications

(I had to re-start machine for kernel parameter setting)



This is the directory under which Fusion Applications Framework will be installed.

After successful installation of Provision Framework, you will get directory structure like below.
