Step by step Oracle EBS R12.1 Installation

ORACLE EBS R12.1 INSTALLATION

In this article we are going to perform Oracle EBS R12.1.1 Installation in OEL 6.4

Description:

1) Perform operating system pre-requisites for R12.1.1
2) Files required to Install EBS R12.1.1
3) Creating Staging Area
4) Installation of EBS R12.1.1

Perform operating system pre-requisites for R12.1.1:

STEP 1:

Install the required RPM’s:

RPM for Oracle EBS can be installed using yum.

cd /etc/yum.repos.d
wget http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-ol6.repo

Using a text editor or vi command in terminal, edit the following entries in the file /etc/yum.repos.d/public-yum-ol6.repo

cat public-yum-ol6.repo

[ol6_latest]
name=Oracle Linux $releasever Latest ($basearch)
baseurl=http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL6/latest/$basearch/
gpgkey=http://public-yum.oracle.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle-ol6
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1

[ol6_addons]
name=Oracle Linux $releasever Add ons ($basearch)
baseurl=http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL6/addons/$basearch/
gpgkey=http://public-yum.oracle.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle-ol6
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1

[ol6_UEK_latest]
name=Latest Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel for Oracle Linux $releasever ($basearch)
baseurl=http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL6/UEK/latest/$basearch/
gpgkey=http://public-yum.oracle.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle-ol6
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1

Update all packages and then install the pre-install rpm by running the following yum commands:

yum clean all
yum update
yum install oracle-ebs-server-R12-preinstall

Note: Install the following RPM’s with minimum version of 2.17 or higher version, otherwise you will receive Error at Post validation installation. We can get the below RPM’s here.

glibc-devel-2.17-55.el6.i686

Note :

1: The openmotif package version must be 2.1.30 (for example, openmotif-2.2.3-10.RHEL4.5 is not supported).

2: This unzip package (available from EL 6 distribution) is only required for purposes of running Rapid Install to unzip the required EBS files as part of the installation and should be reverted after the install of EBS. Alternatively, users can backup the existing unzip 6.0 in /usr/bin, copy the unzip 5.5 from the EBS staging directory to /usr/bin for purposes of installing EBS, and then restore the unzip 6.0 when done.

mv /usr/bin/unzip /usr/bin/unzip-ver6

After installing the RPM’s, restart machine then run following command to link all libraries “ldconfig -v” to create necessary links and cache to the most recent shared libraries

ldconfig -v

STEP 2:

Change SELINUX as follows and Restart Machine to take changes to effect:

cat /etc/selinux/config
SELINUX=permissive

STEP 3:

Stop the iptables service:
service iptables stop

Stop the iptables service from starting when you restart the server:
chkconfig iptables off

STEP 4:

Configure Kernel parameters:

cat /etc/sysctl.conf

net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0
net.ipv4.conf.default.rp_filter = 1
net.ipv4.conf.default.accept_source_route = 0
kernel.sysrq = 0
kernel.core_uses_pid = 1
net.ipv4.tcp_syncookies = 1
fs.aio-max-nr = 1048576
net.ipv4.tcp_tw_recycle = 0
kernel.shmall = 2097152
kernel.shmmax = 4294967295
kernel.shmmni = 4096
kernel.sem = 256 32000 100 142
fs.file-max = 131072
net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 10000 65000
kernel.msgmni = 2878
kernel.msgmax = 8192
kernel.msgmnb = 65535
net.core.rmem_default = 262144
net.core.wmem_default = 262144
net.core.rmem_max = 4194304
net.core.wmem_max = 262144

Run the following command to change the current kernel parameters:

sysctl -p

STEP 5:

Verify /etc/sysconfig/network file is formatted as follows:

cat /etc/sysconfig/network
HOSTNAME=ebsdb.doyensys.com

Add IP Address and hostname of the server in the /etc/hosts file as below:

cat /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1             localhost.localdomain   localhost
192.168.1.201    ebsdb.doyensys.com      ebsdb

STEP 6:

If the /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/network file exists, remove it:
ls: cannot access /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default/networ*: No such file or directory

STEP 7:

Add the following lines to the “/etc/security/limits.conf” file:

cat /etc/security/limits.conf
* hard nofile 65535
* soft nofile 4096
* hard nproc 16386
* soft nproc 2047

STEP 8:

Create Oracle Inventory Directory:

mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/oraInventory
cat /etc/oraInst.loc
inventory_loc=/u01/app/oracle/oraInventory
inst_group=oinstall

STEP 9:

Create Appropriate Users and Groups:

groupadd oinstall
groupadd dba
usermod -g oinstall -G dba oracle
passwd oracle
usermod -g oinstall -G dba applmgr
passwd applmgr

STEP 10:

Create Directory Structure and Change Ownership & Permissions:

cd /u01
ls -ltrh
mkdir dbebs
mkdir applebs
chmod -R 777 /u01/*ebs
chown -R oracle:dba /u01/dbebs
chown -R applmgr:dba /u01/applebs
chown -R oracle:oinstall /u01/app/
chmod -R 777 /u01/app/
ls -ltrh

Files required to Install EBS R12.1.1:

Creating Staging Area:

Copy the above files into the server:

Unzip the startCD file and run the perl script to create the stage

cd /u01/Stage/startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz
perl adautostg.pl
Stage directory(here give your directory location example : /u01/Stage)
Enter the default option (option 1 )to stage all the required s/w

As root user execute the following command:
xhost +

Installation of EBS R12.1.1:

From the startCD execute rapidwiz:

cd /u01/Stage/startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz
./rapidwiz

Select Option 1, since we are doing the installation.

Provide oracle support e-mail & password if you wish to receive security updates. Here, I don’t need of the updates, so unchecked the tick mark.

Edit the ports, if you wish to change the default ports. Here I am going with the default ports.

Provide the appropriate details like Database SID, hostname with owner, groups of the installation directory for the database.

Provide the appropriate details like hostname with owner, groups of the installation directory for the application.

When all the pre-checks are successful, go ahead for the installation.

Once, the installation is complete, post-install validation run’s automatically. If it is successful, then installation is completed, else if any of the check is errored, check the log, fix-up the issue and retry.

Finally, place the cursor above the “Connect to Oracle Application Release 12.1.1” to get the Application front-end URL
