Few Pointers:-

1) For 11 .2.0.1 database installation, ensure you follow the guide here for correct kernel parameter settings & open file descriptors.

For missing RPMs , the easiest way to manage them is to use yum and Oracle’s free yum server. Yum will automatically resolve any cascading dependencies. Check for details

2) On 64 bit OS, you need to install Java separately before you install weblogic using jar file. Java versions certified with Weblogic 10.3.5 ,  64 bit is:

JRockit  Update 24 R28.1.3+
Sun JDK 1.6.0_24+

3) Each ECM products need to be deployed on separate Managed servers. You cannot deploy Oracle UCM, Oracle IBR, Oracle I/PM, Oracle IRM, or Oracle URM to a Managed Server or cluster that already has another application deployed.

4) If you want a remote deployment of Site Studio for External applications web site, you can select Oracle UCM – SSXA Server(introduced in ECM to create an Oracle WebLogic domain with a Managed Server that has the files required to run the web site.

5) On 64 bit systems, When you configure weblogic domain , on ” Configure Server Start Mode and JDK” screen ,select the  JDK  you installed separately.

6) By default, ECM uses weblogic server embedded  LDAP as identity store. For production, it is recommended to use external LDAP like OID,Microsoft AD,IPlanet, Novel etc.


High Level steps for ECM 11g Ps4 installation:-

1. Install Database.

2. Create schema for ECM using RCU, download RCU from here

3. Install 64 bith Java version certified with 10.3.5.

4. Install jar file WebLogic Server 10.3.5 (Download from here) .To Install issue below command:-

Set your JAVA_HOME environment variable to JDK 1.6 (installed in step 3)

JAVA_HOME/bin/java -jar wls1035_generic.jar  (For hybrid JDK like HP-PA, HPIA, and Solaris64 use flag -d64)

This will create Middleware Home & Weblogic Home.

5. Install Enterprise Content Management (ECM) 11g – Installer will create binaries for UCM, IBR, IPM, IRM and URM

When you run installer,it will prompt for JRE location,give the location where you installed the java in step 3.

./runInstaller -jreLoc [JAVA_HOME]

6. Configure Weblogic domain for Enterprise Content Management (ECM) by running under $ECM_ORACLE_HOME/common/bin.

This step will create the admin server & required managed servers.

7. Perform Post Installation Steps for UCM, IBR, IPM, IRM and URM as mentioned here


Issues Encountered:-

Issue 1:- While installation of ECM, when Oracle Installer checks for kernel parameters, it fails because of hardnofiles and softnofiles default values:

<<<<<Checking for hardnofiles=4096; hardnofiles=1024. Failed<<<<

<<<< Checking for softnofiles=4096; softnofiles=1024. Failed <<<<

a.Add the line below to /etc/pam.d/login and /etc/pam.d/sshd :
session    required
b.Edit /etc/security/limits.conf
<owner> soft nofile 4096
<owner> hard nofile 4096
c. Restart machine
