Yesterday I discussed about Overview of 10g Application Server (Fusion middleware), If you missed that post you can now check it at
If you don’t understand what is OID, OIDDAS, DIP, SSO, MR or any other component at this minute don’t worry . I’ll discuss about them in future in detail.
Overview of 10g Application Server Installation
— infrastructure & Middle Tier Should (MUST) be isntalled under separate Oracle Homes. Though they can be on Same Physical Machine or on different Machines
— First you have to install Infrastructure Tier then only you can install Middle Tier
— You can install Portal/Wireless or IM Repository in an existing database (Choose RepCA, Repository Creation Assistance tool for this option. If you are new to 10g AS skip this for time being as this is optional feature)
— Before Installation, Make sure all prereq. are complete (Check installation Document mentioned at bottom of this page)
— You can use eDelivery.oracle.com for software or use link http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/htdocs/devlic.html?=/technology/software/products/ias/htdocs/101202.html (Choose right version, suggestion 10.1.2.0.2 if this is Test as E-Business Suite is certified with Portal Version 10.1.4 )
— For Portal 10.1.4 , you need 10.1.2.0.2 & then Upgrade portal to 10.1.4 (P.S. Portal version is different than Application Server Version)
Options in Installation
While Installing Infrastructure Tier, you will get three options
– Identity Management & Metadata Repository
– Identity Management only
– Metadata Repository only
If you are new select option 1 i.e. IM+MR as option 2 & 3 are for advanced configuration like Infrastructure on Multiple Machines
While Installing Middle Tier, you will again get three options
– J2ee & Webcache
– Portal & Wireless
– Business Intelligence & Forms
BI & Form type Installation include first two options so this selection will include all J2ee, Webcache, Portal, Wireless, BI & Forms
Portal & Wireless include first option so this selection will include J2ee, Webcache, Portal, Wireless
J2ee & Webcache will install only j2ee & webcache. So if you are not aware of at this minute what you want better select option three i.e. Business Intelligence & Forms
Installation Document mentioned below should be enough, if not leave comments & I’ll post step by step installation of 10g Application Server.
It takes 5-6 hours installing 10g AS depending on your Server Capacity.
Installation Document from oracle for Application Server version 10.1.2.0.2 is available at
http://download-uk.oracle.com/docs/cd/B14099_19/getstart.htm . Select as per your Operating System
