Pre Instalaltion Steps
Check System requirement:
Software Requirenet : like ar, ld, make, gcc, make, Xdisplay – (Unix), MS C++, MKS

65 GB for Vision DB )
Once prechecks are done create User ( Single User or Two user ), with Single user will install both application tier and database tier and for Two user user1(oramgr) will install & own Database tier & user2(appmgr) will install & own Application Tier.
