    Installing 10g Application Server / Fusion Middleware
    Monday, October 30, 2006
    Register for R12 upgrade
    Imp. Note:
    Few of you subscribed to email Notification but didn't confirm for this service from Inbox, Click on Verify Link in Inbox/Junk folder else you will not receive mail about new port in your Inbox. For those who are not aware of this , check bottom of this post.

    Yesterday we discussed about Overview of 10g Application Server (Fusion middleware), If you missed that post you can now check it at

    If you don't understand what is OID, OIDDAS, DIP, SSO, MR or any other component at this minute don't worry . I'll discuss about them in future in detail.

    Overview of 10g Application Server Installation

    -- infrastructure & Middle Tier Should (MUST) be isntalled under separate Oracle Homes. Though they can be on Same Physical Machine or on different Machines
    -- First you have to install Infrastructure Tier then only you can install Middle Tier
    -- You can install Portal/Wireless or IM Repository in an existing database (Choose RepCA, Repository Creation Assistance tool for this option. If you are new to 10g AS skip this for time being as this is optional feature)
    -- Before Installation, Make sure all prereq. are complete (Check installation Document mentioned at bottom of this page)
    -- You can use for software or use link (Choose right version, suggestion if this is Test as E-Business Suite is certified with Portal Version 10.1.4 )
    -- For Portal 10.1.4 , you need & then Upgrade portal to 10.1.4 (P.S. Portal version is different than Application Server Version)

    Options in Installation

    While Installing Infrastructure Tier, you will get three options
    - Identity Management & Metadata Repository
    - Identity Management only
    - Metadata Repository only
    If you are new select option 1 i.e. IM+MR as option 2 & 3 are for advanced configuration like Infrastructure on Multiple Machines

    While Installing Middle Tier, you will again get three options
    - J2ee & Webcache
    - Portal & Wireless
    - Business Intelligence & Forms

    BI & Form type Installation include first two options so this selection will include all J2ee, Webcache, Portal, Wireless, BI & Forms

    Portal & Wireless include first option so this selection will include J2ee, Webcache, Portal, Wireless

    J2ee & Webcache will install only j2ee & webcache. So if you are not aware of at this minute what you want better select option three i.e. Business Intelligence & Forms

    Installation Document mentioned below should be enough, if not leave comments & I'll post step by step installation of 10g Application Server.

    It takes 5-6 hours installing 10g AS depending on your Server Capacity.

    Installation Document
    Installation Document from oracle for Application Server version is available at . Select as per your Operating System

      I'm actually a mainline Oracle DBA as opposed to an Apps DBA, but I'm trying to adapt ... Now I've got a task that's outside my core competency and could use a pointer to a recipe for getting a regular oracle database and enough of an Apps server to run OID on the same Sun 490 host.

      Can you make a suggestion? Previous experience trying to make the two products play nice in the same sandbox have been "less than satisfactory".

      Fond regards,

      Gus ,
      They can coexist but in different oracle_home on same server pretty well (You need to check on performance if site is going to be used very heavily) . Implementation wise I never faced any issues

      Hi Atul,

      I have a question, I just upgraded our test 11i database (9i) to 10g (10.2), as a part of that upgraded forms, reports, graphics to patchset 18. Now planning to install 10giAS on appsTier on which forms, Apache and discoverer running. If I install 10giAS in differnet home, how can I get that in to appsTier?, does it mean adapcctl script no longer be used to start webservices?. I haven't done this before, if my question is stupid, please ignore :).


    • At 8:28 AM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      You have to use opmnctl script to start stop services once you configure 10g AS with Apps. After installing 10g AS in seprate home , you have to do additional configuration steps with Apps 11i. Check configuring 10g AS with Apps 11i doc in metalink.

      10g AS is default as in R12 and scripts to start / stop there are adopmnctl which is ad wrapper over opmnctl

      Hi Atul,

      I have a RAC enviroment having 2 instance with 10g database.

      i have to install 10g application server on two window-2003 servers i.e on on server J2EE & Web cache and on another server all other components.

      how to proceed,do i have to install infra on both server? after that what steps to be followed?

      Thanks in Advance

    • At 7:00 PM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      No required if you don't want HA for infra tier you can just install infra tier on one of node and use RAC dataabse as Repository for Infra Tier and as well content database.
