./buildStage.sh

2.3 select option 1 i.e. Create New Stage

2.3 Select Option 2 Linux x86-64

2.4 Please enter the directory containing the zipped installation media: [Enter directory location where all the zip files are downloaded]

/stage/oracle/r12/12.2/

__________
Unzipping V35810-01.zip
Unzipping V35803-01_3of3.zip
Unzipping V35231-01_5of5.zip

.
.
.

Verifying stage area…

Directory /stage/oracle/r12/12.2/TechInstallMedia is valid
Directory /stage/oracle/r12/12.2/TechPatches/DB is valid
Directory /stage/oracle/r12/12.2/TechPatches/MiddleTier is valid
Directory /stage/oracle/r12/12.2/EBSInstallMedia/AppDB is valid

Directory /stage/oracle/r12/12.2/TechInstallMedia/ohs11116 is valid
Directory /stage/oracle/r12/12.2/TechInstallMedia/wls1036_generic is valid

__________

 

2.5 Staging Area should look like below

 

3. Create Operating System User depending on Single User or Multi User Installation :

You can do

a) Single -User  Installation : oracle where both Application Tier and Database Tier are owned by single user

b) Multi-User Installation : oracle & applmgr where Application Tier is owned by one user (applmgr) and Database Tier by another (oracle)

Note: I am doing multi-user installation and using applmgr & oracle both member of group dba

groupadd dba
useradd -g dba applmgr
useradd -g dba oracle

 

4. Start Installer from root user
cd $R12.2_SOFTWARE/startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz/
./rapidwiz

5. In Wizard Operation screen select : Install Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.0

    @ Charl Naude,
    Did you check what is in application tier install log file ?

    I installed on Linux 5.6 (base install) and it worked so it could be either Linux 6.4 or one of the corrupt zip file

    @ Venvik,
    Try installing WebLogic 10.3.6 and OHS 11.1.1.6 on this server and see if that works, I’ll review BUG and see as it looks like workaround may be possible.

Hi Guys,

I’ve successfully installed 12.2 on RHEL 5.6(64 bit).

There is some issue with staging area.

Here is solution.

Only copy below mentioned zip files to other location and stage it and restart RI.

We do have an issue with edelivery at the moment. There are some files marked at option which are mandatory.
There are also some files which are optional which if you place them in the stage, your install will fail.

Please make sure you have downloaded these and ONLY these and placed them in your stage directory. Do not download any others.

Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 Supplemental Media
Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.0 Rapid Install Start Here
Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.0 Rapid Install (All Disks and Parts)
Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.0 for Linux x86-64 Rapid Install Technology one-off Patches
Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2.2 Update Pack for Linux x86
Oracle E-Business Suite NLS Release 12.2.0 (36 languages)
Oracle E-Business Suite NLS Release 12.2.2 (36 languages)
Oracle WebLogic Server 11gR1 (10.3.6) Generic and Coherence
Oracle Fusion Middleware Web Tier Utilities 11g Patch Set 5 (11.1.1.6.0) for Linux x86-64

After ensuring the above. you MUST run buildStage.sh from the startCD
1st run option 1 to build the stage
2nd run option 2 to copy one off patches.

Now re-try Rapid Install. It is very important that you clean the last install out.

I’ve downloaded only below zip files and staged.I’ve successfully installed 12.2

Hi,

This is a Bug 17500565. And solutions is as follows:

Please note that you should NOT download the following files while creating the R12.2 Rapid install Stage:

1. Oracle Database Lite 10g Release 3 (10.3.0.3.0) for Linux x86 V20223-01.zip

2. Oracle SOA Suite 11g Patch Set 5 (11.1.1.6.0) for Price Protection
V29672-01_1of2.zip
V29672-01_2of2.zip

3. Oracle Data Integrator 11g (11.1.1.6.0) for Generic
V29762-01_1of2.zip
V29762-01_2of2.zip

4. Oracle Portal, Forms, Reports and Discoverer 11g (11.1.1.2.0) for Linux x86-64
V18772-01_1of4.zip
V18772-01_2of4.zip
V18772-01_3of4.zip
V18772-01_4of4.zip

5. Oracle Portal, Forms, Reports and Discoverer 11g Patch Set 5 (11.1.1.6.0) for Linux x86-64
V29883-01.zip

These files DON’T belong to the R12.2 startCD shiphome.

They should be downloaded to a different location than R12.2 Rapid install stage.

Also IMPORTANTLY, note that these two components given as optional are ‘ Mandatory ‘ and should be downloaded onto Rapid Install stage .

1. Oracle Fusion Middleware Web Tier Utilities 11g Patch Set 5 (11.1.1.6.0) for Linux x86-64 , V29764-01.zip
2. Oracle WebLogic Server 11gR1 (10.3.6) Generic and Coherence , V29856-01.zip

Once you have downloaded all the right zip files, rebuild the stage directory by running ‘ buildStage.sh’..

Cleanup the current install (oraInventory, temp also) and re-install again.

Thanks
Natarajan

Response to sachinwk:

My install failed at the same patch (10152652). Solution in my case was that the stage area wasn’t on a permanently mounted volume.

See https://forums.oracle.com/message/11213127#11213127 for details (look at message #23)

Good luck,

Hi Atul,
Thank you for the great post. This along with the install guide has been a very useful resource for my R12.2 Vision Install.

I am working on installing the R12.2 as a multi-node setup with the DB and Apps server residing on two different VMs. The DB server is up and running but while trying to run rapidwiz I am running into issues. The conf_.txt file from the DB server has been imported and when trying to use it for loading the configuration returns the following error.

“RW-00014: – Invalid configuration file. Incorrect value for ‘NUMBER_OF_HOSTS’ in ini file”

Any ideas or suggestions what could be causing this error and steps that can be taken to over come this issue

Thanks a lot for your help.

Was there a solution to the issue of missing “instances” under FMW_HOME/webtier after fresh file system intallation.

Need to know when is this file created? during filesystem installation or upgrade driver or file system configuration post upgrade driver or during onnline patch enablement?

I am installing Oracle EBS 12.2.0.The Pre installation checks went fine. When I click “Yes” on the Message Do you want to begin the Installation now, the Progress bar window opens. Later the Oracle Universal Installer prompt is open which closes after showing the message that the database installation was successfull. But the Installation Progress Bar remains as it is. Still in 0%.
It stays like that for 8 – 9 hrs and nothing happens. Finally I had to close

Can Some one Help !!!!

    @Srinivisan, Did you look at logs to find root cause . Erorr RW-50011,RW-00022,RW-00048 is generic and could be because of multiple reasons . Ensure that staging file are all correct and unzipped properly .
