11. www.oraerp.com - The Knowledge Center for Oracle ERP Professionals - Looking Beyond the Possibilities Redhat Linux Installation for Oracle E-business Suite R-12 Page 11 of 57 9-Choose Yes option to proceed for partitioning

12. www.oraerp.com - The Knowledge Center for Oracle ERP Professionals - Looking Beyond the Possibilities Redhat Linux Installation for Oracle E-business Suite R-12 Page 12 of 57 Partitioning allows you to divide your hard drive into isolated sections, where each section behaves as its own hard drive. 10-We will choose "Create custom layout" and create the partitions as we need on the disk based on the space requirement for installation of Oracle eBusiness Suite R12.1.1

13. www.oraerp.com - The Knowledge Center for Oracle ERP Professionals - Looking Beyond the Possibilities Redhat Linux Installation for Oracle E-business Suite R-12 Page 13 of 57 11-Here this will show all free space of the disk allocated for VMware. Click "New" to create a partition

14. www.oraerp.com - The Knowledge Center for Oracle ERP Professionals - Looking Beyond the Possibilities Redhat Linux Installation for Oracle E-business Suite R-12 Page 14 of 57 Mount Point: Enter the partition's mount point. For example, if this partition should be the root partition, enter /; enter /boot for the /boot partition, and so on. You can also use the pull-down menu to choose the correct mount point for your partition. For a swap partition the mount point should not be set - setting the filesystem type to swap is sufficient. File System Type: Using the pull-down menu, select the appropriate file system type for this partition. Usually we will choose default file system. Allowable Drives: This field contains a list of the hard disks installed on your system. If a hard disk's box is highlighted, then a desired partition can be created on that hard disk. Size (MB): Enter the size (in megabytes) of the partition. Note, this field starts with 100 MB; unless changed, only a 100 MB partition will be created. Additional Size Options: Choose whether to keep this partition at a fixed size, to allow it to "grow" (fill up the available hard drive space) to a certain point, or to allow it to grow to fill any remaining hard drive space available. If you choose Fill all space up to (MB), you must give size constraints in the field to the right of this option. This allows you to keep a certain amount of space free on your hard drive for future use. Force to be a primary partition: Select whether the partition you are creating should be one of the first four partitions on the hard drive. If unselected, the partition is created as a logical partition Encrypt: Choose whether to encrypt the partition so that the data stored on it cannot be accessed without a passphrase, even if the storage device is connected to another system OK: Select OK once you are satisfied with the settings and wish to create the partition

15. www.oraerp.com - The Knowledge Center for Oracle ERP Professionals - Looking Beyond the Possibilities Redhat Linux Installation for Oracle E-business Suite R-12 Page 15 of 57 12-A root partition (3.0 GB - 5.0 GB) — this is where "/" (the root directory) is located. In this setup, all files (except those stored in /boot) are on the root partition. A 3.0 GB partition allows you to install a minimal installation, while a 5.0 GB root partition lets you perform a full installation, choosing all package groups. In this installation we have chooses 8GB space of the disk.

16. www.oraerp.com - The Knowledge Center for Oracle ERP Professionals - Looking Beyond the Possibilities Redhat Linux Installation for Oracle E-business Suite R-12 Page 16 of 57 13-A /boot/ partition (250 MB) — the partition mounted on /boot/ contains the operating system kernel (which allows your system to boot Red Hat Enterprise Linux), along with files used during the bootstrap process. Due to limitations, creating a native ext3 partition to hold these files is required. For most users, a 250 MB boot partition is sufficient For this installation we have chooses partition size 600m.

17. www.oraerp.com - The Knowledge Center for Oracle ERP Professionals - Looking Beyond the Possibilities Redhat Linux Installation for Oracle E-business Suite R-12 Page 17 of 57 14- A swap partition (at least 256 MB) — swap partitions are used to support virtual memory. In other words, data is written to a swap partition when there is not enough RAM to store the data your system is processing. In years past, the recommended amount of swap space increased linearly with the amount of RAM in the system. But because the amount of memory in modern systems has increased into the hundreds of gigabytes, it is now recognized that the amount of swap space that a system needs is a function of the memory workload running on that system. However, given that swap space is usually designated at install time, and that it can be difficult to determine beforehand the memory workload of a system, Red Hat recommend determining system swap using the following table. For further details check on redhat.com Recommended System Swap Space Amount of RAM in the System Recommended Amount of Swap Space 4GB of RAM or less a minimum of 2GB of swap space 4GB to 16GB of RAM a minimum of 4GB of swap space 16GB to 64GB of RAM a minimum of 8GB of swap space 64GB to 256GB of RAM a minimum of 16GB of swap space 256GB to 512GB of RAM a minimum of 32GB of swap space

I am setting the size ‘Fill to maximum allowable size’

19. www.oraerp.com - The Knowledge Center for Oracle ERP Professionals - Looking Beyond the Possibilities Redhat Linux Installation for Oracle E-business Suite R-12 Page 19 of 57 16- This screen will ask you if you want to keep the boot record on the disk or not. Keep the defaults and press next To boot the system without boot media, you usually need to install a boot loader. A boot loader is the first software program that runs when a computer starts. It is responsible for loading and transferring control to the operating system kernel software. The kernel, in turn, initializes the rest of the operating system. GRUB (GRand Unified Bootloader), which is installed by default, is a very powerful boot loader. GRUB can load a variety of free operating systems, as well as proprietary operating systems with chain-loading (the mechanism for loading unsupported operating systems, such as DOS or Windows, by loading another boot loader).

22. www.oraerp.com - The Knowledge Center for Oracle ERP Professionals - Looking Beyond the Possibilities Redhat Linux Installation for Oracle E-business Suite R-12 Page 22 of 57 20- Setting up a root account and password is one of the most important steps during your installation. Your root account is similar to the administrator account used on Windows NT machines. The root account is used to install packages, upgrade RPMs, and perform most system maintenance. Logging in as root gives you complete control over your system. Provide the password for the root (Administrator User in Linux) user

23. www.oraerp.com - The Knowledge Center for Oracle ERP Professionals - Looking Beyond the Possibilities Redhat Linux Installation for Oracle E-business Suite R-12 Page 23 of 57 21- Once a package group has been selected, if optional components are available you can click on Optional packages to view which packages are installed by default, and to add or remove optional packages from that group. If there are no optional components this button will be disabled

24. www.oraerp.com - The Knowledge Center for Oracle ERP Professionals - Looking Beyond the Possibilities Redhat Linux Installation for Oracle E-business Suite R-12 Page 24 of 57 I strongly suggest, try to “install everything” while you are making your first RHEL installation and you are doing first time, It’s little hard to try install-add some rpms and other tools on RHEL.

[root@oraerp 6078836] $ cp libdb.so.2 /usr/lib [root@ oraerp lib]# cd /usr/lib [root@ oraerp lib]# pwd /usr/lib [root@ oraerp lib]# ls libdb.so* libdb.so libdb.so.2 Link to Motif library in Oracle Application Server 10.1.2 (on Oracle Linux 5, RHEL 5, Oracle Linux 6 and RHEL 6 only) Perform the following command (as root on your system) to update a required link to a Motif library prior to relinking or patching the 10.1.2 Application Server Oracle Home: # unlink /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6 # ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/libXtst.so.6.1 /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6 Without this updated link, you may see the following errors during a relink of the 10.1.2 Oracle Home: /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6: undefined reference to `__stack_chk_fail@GLIBC_2.4' /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6: undefined reference to `__fprintf_chk@GLIBC_2.3.4' /usr/lib/libXtst.so.6: undefined reference to `__sprintf_chk@GLIBC_2.3.4' Since the ldconfig command overrides this link, the above link command (ln) will have to be re-issued after running the ldconfig command. Create Operating System Accounts: Before running Rapid Install, we must create the operating system users/accounts that will be used:  in the installation of the database node: the oracle account The operating system user that owns the database node file system and starts the database node services is called the ‘oracle user’.

44. www.oraerp.com - The Knowledge Center for Oracle ERP Professionals - Looking Beyond the Possibilities Redhat Linux Installation for Oracle E-business Suite R-12 Page 44 of 57  and Applications node file systems: the applmgr account The operating system user that owns the Applications node file system and starts the Applications node services is called the applmgr user. The applmgr user is the account that owns the Applications node technology stack (APPL_TOP, COMMON_TOP, OracleAS 10.1.2 Oracle Home, and OracleAS 10.1.3 1-14 Oracle E-Business Suite Installation Guide: Using Rapid InstallOracle Home). The names of these accounts must be the same on all nodes in an Oracle E-Business Suite system. You can perform (Reference - Page 27 - For linux user):  a single-user installation: one user for the two account  a Multi-user installations: one user by account. The default name for the oracle user is ora<SID>. For example, for a production (ORAERPPROD) environment, the default Oracle OS username might be oraerpprod. For the applmgr user, the default name is appl<SID>. For example, for a Vision Demo (VIS) environment, the default Apps OS username might be applvis. Two common groups that are defined in installations are:  the oinstall group (which owns the Oracle Inventory information)  and the dba group whose members have SYSDBA privileges of the database. groupadd dba useradd -m -g dba oravis passwd oraerpvision useradd -m -g dba applvis passwd oraerpappl Inventory Directory - oraInst.loc Refer MOS note 405293.1, on all platforms except Windows, oraInst.loc must exist and point to a valid inventory directory. Specifically:  oraInst.loc must be located in /etc (for Linux and IBM AIX) or /var/opt/oracle (for Solaris, HP-UX PA RISC, and HP-UX Itanium)  oraInst.loc must point to a valid central inventory location  the central inventory location must be writable by the owner of the oracle files and the application files If oraInst.loc does not exist, create it in the proper directory. The contents should look like this:

Installation of EBS R 12.1.1: With Rapid Install, you can perform the following tasks:  Install a new, fully configured Oracle E-Business Suite system, including the latest certified Oracle E-Business Suite technology stack and all patches, product family release update packs, release update packs, and other updates available at the time of this Oracle E-Business Suite release.  Lay down the file system and configure server processes for an upgraded system.  Install a new database node or Applications node technology stack. Rapid Install employs a wizard that guides you through the screens used to carry out the selected task. On the wizard screens, you enter configuration values for your system; these will typically be saved in the Oracle E-Business Suite database for later use. Type of installation Standard In a new Standard installation, you define many aspects of the configuration. You will need to choose where to install the required nodes (database node and primary Applications node). Express In an Express installation, you set up a fully configured, single-user/single-machine system using a few basic configuration parameters, such as database type and name, top-level installation directory, and port pool choice. The remaining directory specifications and mount points are supplied by Rapid Install using default values. An Express installation includes a set of core products and uses the US7ASCII character set. http://gerardnico.com/wiki/ebs/installation
