5. Oracle Applications 11i Installation (Linux)
5.1. Login as oracle user we created in the above steps.
5.2. Start Oracle Applications installation and follow as the following screens. I will
demonstrate vision installation on a single node.
5.3. Change directory to /u01/Stage11i/ startCD/Disk1/ rapidwiz/ with the cd command.
5.4. Execute $./ rapidwiz < ENTER>

5.5. In the displayed Select Wizard Operation screen we have selected Install Oracle

Applications E-Business 11i. After selecting the desired option press Next.


5.6. I f you already have a configuration created with rapidwiz then you can provide it on the Load Configuration screen by select Yes, load configuration file and click open to find the configuration file. By providing the file the next steps will be skipped and the system status check step will be performed on the basis of parameters provided in the configuration file. To know how this file is created and saved just see next screen Save Instance – specific Configuration, which displayed after we provide all the information. The default name is config.txt.
I have selected No as I don’t have configuration.


5.7. Press the next button on the above screen.
5.8. As I already mentioned above that I will demonstrate single node installation so here on
the Install Type screen I will select, Single – node (All services on a single node).


5.9. Press Next and the next screen will be to define database type.

5.10. I will install Vision Demo Database instead of Fresh Database as the Fresh would be blank while Vision is preconfigured Database. So on the Define Database Type screen I have selected Vision Demo Database and also entered my database name VIS.


5.11. After providing these two information press Next on the above screen.
5.12. By default the Oracle OS User is the user with which I logged in and started the
installation so I can’t change it here. The second is to enter the group so provide the
name of group which was created in few steps above. The third entry on the Database Install Information – Vision screen is to provide the Base Install Directory where the application will be installed.


5.13. I f you need to change any other path on the above screen the click on Advanced Edit else proceed by clicking Next.
5.14. In the previous step we provided information for Database while on this Configuration
Information for Node – Vision screen we will provide information for Application side. The information is just like same as on the database screen. You can set different paths of database and applications installation if any space limitation on one disk.


5.15. Enter your domain name in the Domain Name field on Global System Settings screen. Like for demonstration I have entered erpstuff.com.


5.16. Save the configuration file on the following Save Instance – specific Configuration screen for future use. Name the file which is convenient for you as kept the default one that is config.txt.


5.17. Press Next to proceed.
5.18. All the input tasks of DBA are completed now the checks will be performed on the basis of information provided in the previous steps.
5.19. The next screen which will appear is the System Check Status screen.
5.20. The next immediate screen will show the results of checks performed in the last step.
5.21. View if any cross found and resolve the error mentioned. I am sure if all steps above were performed carefully there should be no issue at this place. I f any error
displayed on the Validate System Configuration screen then press Back else press



5.22. The next screen is Component Installation Review which displays the components to be installed.


5.23. Pressing Next will bring the Load Balancing screen.


5.24. I have used default values for Concurrent Manager, Forms Server on the Load Balancing Node Specification screen.


5.25. As we are installing single node so Node name is same for all Services while Linux is selected as Operating System on Node Information screen.


5.26. After pressing the Next on the above screen will bring the following Installing Oracle Applications screen which shows two progress bars.


5.27. During this the DBA can perform the following tasks,
o In case of multi node installation start OS installation on the other node.
o I f it is lunch time then have a nice lunch as the installation will take time to complete depending on the hardware.
o I f you have music system then listening good music would also be a good time passing.
o Mean while keep watching the progress bars as any error may be prompted due to
certain reason like if any step(s) was/were missed.
