This post is about installing Oracle Apps 11i using rapid install. This is a very brief discription of the install document provided by Oracle. For details, you can always refer to the official docs of Oracle. I am providing the installation sequence for one of my test instance. I hope this will serve as a fast and simple docs for you to quickly understand the installation and the steps.
Basic installation of Oracle Applications 11i is divided into 3 parts.
i) Checking system requirement
In pre-installation we check about
1) Software Requirement
2) CPU Requirement
3) Memory Requirement
4) Disk Space Requirement
required for installing Oracle Applications.
ii) Creating staging area
We then create a staging area where we download and extract all the required files. The staging area after extracting the software will look as shown below.
[root@ocvmrh2122 11i10_CU2_115102]# ls -rlt
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 Oct 13 2005 oraDB
drwxr-xr-x 26 root root 4096 Oct 13 2005 oraAppDB
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Oct 13 2005 oraiAS
drwxr-xr-x 10 root root 4096 Oct 13 2005 oraApps
drwxr-xr-x 9 root root 4096 May 7 2007 startCD
You need around 24G for staging area after extraction.
iii) Creating User Accounts
Before we start installation we need to create 2 users. One user (APPLMGR) will be the owner of middle tier and other user (ORACLE) will be the owner of database. Assign the primary owner as “oinstall” and secondary owner as “dba” for both the users.
Check the display setting before starting the installation. You can set the DISPLAY to hostname:0.0
We begin installation by running rapidwiz present in startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz/ directory. Below are the screen shots that you will see. I have given the screen shots with my input for your easy referrence so that you can go through the same fast.
You can either make a new installation of upgrade an existing installation. In our case we are going to do a new installation. In case of Express Configuration you supply a few basic parameters, such as database type and name, top-level install directory, and increments for port settings. The remaining directories and mount points are supplied by Rapid Install using default values.
