EBS R12.2 installation steps

Pre-Installation steps:

Kernel parameter:


vi /etc/sysctl.conf
kernel.shmall = 4294967296
kernel.shmmax=2147483648
kernel.sem=250 32000 100 128
fs.file-max=65536
net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 2024 65000

vi /etc/security/limit.conf
oracle hard nofile 4096
oracle soft nofile 4096

vi /etc/pam.d/login
session    required     pam_limits.so

User and Group Creation:


useradd oracle
groupadd dba
usermod -G dba -a oracle

Create password for oracle (in my case both apps and database are oracle user) user,


#passwd oracle

Create ORACLE_BASE directory:


mkdir -p /oracle/product
Create oraInventory directory in /oracle location
Create oraInst.loc file in oraInventory directory and /etc
Enter the below text in oraInst.loc file
inventory_loc=/oracle/oraInventory


Create softlink if libdb.so.2 is not there, (for avoid login page issue in post installation steps)


ln -s /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.2.0.0 /usr/lib/libdb.so.2
libdb.so.2 -> /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.2.0.0

Set up the Stage Area:-


Ø  Kindly Read the below instruction before running buildstage.sh script,

================================================================
The staging area should consist of a top-level directory with subdirectories startCD, EBSInstallMedia, TechInstallMedia, and TechPatches.

The startCD directory contains Rapid Install itself (in a subdirectory called Disk1), plus supporting files and documentation.

The EBSInstallMedia directory should contain the following subdirectories:

    AppDB (Oracle E-Business Suite Database)
    Apps (Oracle E-Business Suite products)
    AS10.1.2 (Oracle Application Server 10.1.2)

The TechInstallMedia directory should contain the following subdirectories:

    database (Oracle11gR2 ORACLE_HOME)
    ohs11116 (Oracle HTTP Server)
    wls1036_generic (Oracle WebLogic Server, part of Oracle Fusion Middleware)

The TechPatches directory should contain the following subdirectories:

    MiddleTier (Application tier patches)
    DB (Database Tier patches)

Please note that you should NOT download the following files while creating the R12.2 Rapid install Stage: (for avoid "Fatal Error: TXK Install Service" issue during the installation)

1.    Oracle Database Lite 10g Release 3 (10.3.0.3.0) for Linux x86 V20223-01.zip

2. Oracle SOA Suite 11g Patch Set 5 (11.1.1.6.0) for Price Protection
V29672-01_1of2.zip
V29672-01_2of2.zip

3. Oracle Data Integrator 11g (11.1.1.6.0) for Generic
V29762-01_1of2.zip
V29762-01_2of2.zip

4. Oracle Portal, Forms, Reports and Discoverer 11g (11.1.1.2.0) for Linux x86-64
V18772-01_1of4.zip
V18772-01_2of4.zip
V18772-01_3of4.zip
V18772-01_4of4.zip

5. Oracle Portal, Forms, Reports and Discoverer 11g Patch Set 5 (11.1.1.6.0) for Linux x86-64
V29883-01.zip

These files DO NOT belong to the R12.2 shiphome.

They should be downloaded to a different location than the R12.2 Rapid install stage.
============================================================

unzip V35215-01_1of3 to V35215-01_1of3 (Rapid_install_starts_here_part (1 to 3))
It will create startCD folder....
