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)

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

Fusion Lover says June 20, 2011

Thanks Atual, Did you have to create any Specific user(s) prior to the installation?

Atul Kumar says June 20, 2011

@ Fusion Lover,
Yes, I created user fusionapps and installed using this user (post updated)

Fusion Lover says June 21, 2011

Thanks Atul! I will be running the setup tonight using your steps.
Would you also be posting the next steps for installing the Apps?

Charl says June 24, 2011

Hi Atul

I am at Starting the Applications RCU (3-12 in the Install Guide), but I cannot find in the stuff that was unzipped. Any idea where I can get it?


Neha Mittal says June 24, 2011

Charl, go to bin under the directory where you unzipped apps_rcu zip file, you will see rcu executable ,run it as:


For eg:- /installers/apps_rcu/linux/bin


Atul Kumar says June 24, 2011

@ Charl/Neha Mittal,

Thanks Neha. Charl, just to add to neha’s point, rcu for Fusion Apps is under $unzip_location/installer/apps_rcu/linux[or windows]/bin/rcu

Please note that for linux there is no (as documented) it is rcu which is shell script, run this script to create schema.

Stay tuned to this blog for steps on how to create fusion apps schema.
