[root@oraerp1 ~]# chown -R applerp:dbaerp /u01/applR12/

[root@oraerp1 ~]# chown -R oraerp:dbaerp /u01/oraR12/

 Configure kernel parameters:

[root@oraerp1 ~]# vim /etc/sysctl.conf

#All below kernel parameters are related to oracle E-biz#

kernel.shmall = 268435456

kernel.shmmax = 429496729

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.wmem_default = 262144

net.core.rmem_max = 262144

net.core.wmem_max = 4194304

:wq

[root@oraerp1]# vi /etc/security/limits.conf

:wq

[root@oraerp1 ~]# sysctl -p

net.ipv4.ip_forward = 0

net.ipv4.conf.default.rp_filter = 2

net.ipv4.conf.default.accept_source_route = 0

kernel.sysrq = 0

kernel.core_uses_pid = 1

net.ipv4.tcp_syncookies = 1

kernel.msgmnb = 65536

kernel.msgmax = 65536

kernel.shmmax = 4294967295

kernel.shmall = 268435456

kernel.shmmax = 429496729

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.wmem_default = 262144

net.core.rmem_max = 262144

net.core.wmem_max = 4194304

 Install OS required OS packages (rpm’s)

If selected all packages same as the above shown linux Installation package selection, then just need to Install the below rpm’s:

 Download and Install patch “6078836” from MOS:

[root@oraerp1 6078836]# pwd

/u01/sw_home/6078836

[root@oraerp1 6078836]# ls

libdb.so.2  README.txt

[root@oraerp1 6078836]# ls -l /usr/lib/libdb.so.2

ls: /usr/lib/libdb.so.2: No such file or directory

[root@oraerp1 6078836]# cp libdb.so.2 /usr/lib/

[root@oraerp1 6078836]# ls -l /usr/lib/libdb.so.2

-rw-r–r– 1 root root 5825 Nov 27 11:38 /usr/lib/libdb.so.2

– This is because there is missing library file which is required for R12 Install

 Run xhost + command to enable GUI windows:

[root@oraerp1 ~]# xhost +

access control disabled, clients can connect from any host

 Create stage Area:

There are two ways we can create stage for R12

1. Stage using script adautostage.pl from start here CD

2. Manual stage – create directories and copy media as listed below

[root@oraerp1 Dumps]# cd R12.1.1_X86/

[root@oraerp1 R12.1.1_X86]# ls

oraAppDB  oraApps  oraAS  oraDB  startCD

startCD  – copy Start Here Disk

oraApps  – copy APPL_TOP Disk1, Disk2

oraAS    – copy TOOLS Disk

oraDB    – copy RDBMS Disk

oraAppDB – copy Databases Disk1 to Disk9

I have created the stage area in an external drive

Install oracle E-business suite R12.1.1:

Run rapidwiz from the satge area

[root@oraerp1 Disk1]# cd rapidwiz/

[root@oraerp1 rapidwiz]# ls

adautostg.pl   driver  images  oui           RapidWiz.ini         template

bin            etc     jlib    rapidwiz      RapidWizVersion      unzip

ClientWiz.cmd  File    jre     RapidWiz.cmd  RapidWizVersion.cmd

[root@oraerp1 rapidwiz]# pwd

/media/DATA_STORE/Dumps/R12.1.1_X86/startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz

[root@oraerp1 rapidwiz]# ./rapidwiz
