    Installing Oracle Applications , Become Apps DBA II
    Sunday, July 30, 2006
    Register for R12 upgrade
    So lets start learning from how to become Oracle Apps DBA . This apps dba training is completely free only thing I am looking is your feedback & what you want to hear more, If you are reading this post first time I will recommend you that you start from first post i.e. from Saturday, 29 July 2006.I hope you as Oracle Apps DBA Understand basic Architecture of Oracle E-Business Suite (If no read my first post ) .
    Lets Start with Installation, You can start Installing Apps on Unix, Linux or Windows. I recommend Linux if not then Unix & finally Windows (I find it difficult working on windows as you need additional component to install E-Business Suite ) . For Installation Guide visit Oracle PDF at This E-Business Suite Installation Guide consist of 166 pages & you need to Install all. Read Chapter 1-8 Single User Installation or Two User Installation. As by now you are aware that E-Business Applications Two Tier Database & Application , so first User Oxxxxx is for Database Tier & Second User Axxxxxx for Application Tier. If you are new & Installing it first time better Install everything on Single Machine, Database Under User Oxxxxx and Middle Tier under Axxxxxx.
    Then you can Install Oracle Applications by Inserting CD's one after other or by dumping all disks to one location ( Universal Installer will not prompt to insert CD if you staged/dump your CD on Machine it in proper way, Pg 1-12 , page 24 of Guide), If you are Installing Oracle Apps first time, Select Single Node(Also called Single Machine) Installation. Go to Chapter 2, on page 29 of Guide , you will see screen by Screen navigation path for Installation ( Believe me its very simple and just 30 pages all screens so nothing much to read ). After installation forget Chapter 3,4,5 (these are for Advanced Installation Option - Look them once you are comfortable with Simple Instalation) go directly to chapter 6 , Page 141 (This describes how to Check/Access Oracle E-Business Suite 11i Installation) Just 10 pages. So here complete your Oracle 11i Application & that biggest challenge in becoming Oracle Apps DBA . If you face any Issues during Installation post your problem in some Forum or Metalink , else drop a comment on this Post.

    How to do Multi Node Installation on Apps 11i ?
    If you are comfortable & now want to know how to do multinode Installation for Oracle Applications 11i then follow Chapter 3 (p65- p106) of guide Oracle applications Installation Guide Using Rapid Install Release 11i at

    Tomorrow I'll discuss file system & directories which you/dba's/apps dba have Installed today , What oracle application component sits where ? That will be helpful to understand you Oracle Application . Plsssssss leave comments on this post, depending on that I'll get feedback if its useful or am I wasting your & my time .

    Happy Learning Oracle Apps DBA.

    How 2 become Oracle Apps DBA
    Register for R12 upgrade

    Are you looking for Apps DBA training ? ( Free Ofcourse )
    Are you a DBA and looking for Career or Job in Apps DBA ?
    Are a Oracle DBA and interested in Learning Oracle Apps or want to become Oracle Apps DBA ?

    then you are at right place

    Image taken from Application Architecture Document

    There is lot of Oracle Apps Training material available on net/Oracle Site at the same time lot of training Institutes are providing Oracle Apps DBA, Now its up to you if you want to learn E-Business Suite at your own or want a formal training as Apps DBA. Lets start with what all you should learn as an Oracle Apps DBA.

    First thing is you should be Good in Oracle Database Skills and I assume you are already very good as DBA or don't need any formal training as DBA. To become Oracle Apps DBA first and important thing is that you should be very well familiar with Oracle Applications/E-Business Suite Architecture . Give as much time as possible Architecture & understand all basic component . Its few , Webserver (Oracle-Apache), Forms, Reports, Concurrent Manager, Discoverer and Database. (Discoverer you can skip & can read later but remaining are building blocks of Oracle Applications. Now where to find basic Architecture and related Architecture ? this link contain E-Business Suite but its hell lot of guide & you will not be able to finish it until you die. So from here Open Guide "Oracle Applications Concept" & read chapter 1 only that too just page 1 to 19 ( Only 19 pages & your Basics is done ) I think its not much . If you understand any thing in that put a comment on this Blog & I 'll definately Explain or Can even mail you .
    So moving on to next part of your Oracle apps DBA training , you should know Installation. You can try installing oracle E-Business Suite on your test systems for that you can pick guide
    Oracle Applications Installation Guide: Using Rapid Install In documentation location mentioned above . This might sound tough for first time but believe me it pretty simple , Everything GUI ( You can ignore creating Staging for Dump but if you are a oracle DBA you can do it pretty well ) Now if you encounter any Issues in Installation you can create Metalink Tar or if you don't have metalink Account you can post questions in Oracle E-Business Suite Forum .
    So this conclude Two important aspects of your Oracle Apps DBA Training , I am again focusing on Architecture of Oracle Apps is very critical in APPS DBA Training. If you like above material & still want to read remaining parts of Oracle Apps Training like, AD Utilities for Patching (Very Important for DBA), Cloning, Upgrade wait for my Next Blog I will Update this blog as soon as I create tomorrow or day after , till that time clear your Oracle Apps Concept . Believe me learning Oracle Apps is very simple if you Study carefully & with Interest.
    Plsssssss leave comment.
