Oracle EBS installation

Hi all ,
its taking long time for me to write new blog , any way in this article i am gonna talk about how to install oracle EBS on Linux – 64 V5 update 4, take in your consideration there’s no difference oracle ebs installation step,the difference is changing is the prerequisites for platforms .

you can check the prerequisites on meta-link DOC [ID 761566.1]
i will post link in the bottom of this article .

Before we begin the wild ride, there a few modifications that needs to be done to the system, a few packages need to be installed. I’ll assume that you have searched for quite a while and maybe you even tried to install the damn thing and ran into errors, so I’ll get right into the process. Here what we’re going to do:

  1. Install Development Tools
  2. Install required packages
  3. Modify the System Configuration and Kernel (don’t panic)
  4. Create Required Users
  5. Install Oracle Apps

1-install Development Tools

there’s easy way and hard way i prefer hard way since easy way take space on system and some package not needed for oracle

Easy way :

yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
Hard Way :
you need to check every package on OS if its installed or not

  • compat-libstdc++-296-2.96-138.i386
  • compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-61.i386

Additionally, the following RPMs are required for an 11gR1 Database (which is bundled with the 12.1.1 release) on the database tier:

  • compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-61.x86_64
  • elfutils-libelf-devel-0.125-3.el5.x86_64

  • kernel-headers-2.6.18-8.el5.x86_64
  • openmotif21-2.1.30-11.EL5.i3861
  • xorg-x11-libs-compat-6.8.2-1.EL.33.0.1.i386

Check Package by command : rpm -qa | grep “package name”
Ex:
rpm -qa | grep kernel-headers

if its installed the name of package will appear as result but if its not you need to install like the following :

rpm -ivh “package name that you need to install”.

* after install package called ” openmotif” you need to make the following command :

unlink /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6
ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/libXtst.so.6.1 /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6

Modify the System Configuration and Kernel

Open /etc/sysctl.conf as root
then add the following lines at the end of the file :

#Oracle EBS R12.1.1 Kernel Settings
kernel.shmall = 2097152
kernel.shmmax = 4294967295
kernel.shmmni = 4096
kernel.sem = 256 32000 100 142
fs.file-max = 327679
net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 10000 65000
net.core.rmem_default=262144
net.core.rmem_max=262144
net.core.wmem_default=262144
net.core.wmem_max=4194304

Now lets apply the new settings
/sbin/sysctl –p

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

* hard nofile 65535
* soft nofile 4096
* hard nproc 16384
* soft nproc 2047

Add the following lines to the /etc/resolv.conf file:

options attempts:5
options timeout:15

Create Required Users

we need two Groups : groupadd oinstall groupadd dba
useradd -g oinstall -G dba oracle
passwd oracle
useradd -g oinstall -G dba apps
passwd apps

Create Oracle Base Folder

mkdir -p /u01/oracle/PROD
chown -R oravis:oinstall /u01
chmod -R 775 /u01/

Before installation make sure all media (STAGE) owned by Oracle:oinstall and permission is 775 .
before installation you need to change permission for ./rapidwiz like Following
chmod u+x STAGE_PATH/startCD/DISK1/rapidwiz/

Apply patch number 6078836 before installation becuase if you don’t the Post installation check will fail on HTTP error : RW-50015 , you find this patch in the bottom .

Start the installation and Good luck : ./rapidwiz


If you need patch or any thing please contact me here .
