|As promised here comes Oracle Applications R12 Installation on Linux Virtual Machine installed on my Windows Vista (You can try on XP or 2000 as well).
I purchased 500 GB USB hard disk from Amazon Western Digital 500GB "My Book" Premium 1C External Hard Drive USB2.0/Firewire - Retail kit and attached with my laptop for staging and installing Oracle Apps R12 .
Create an Staging Area
This step is not required but if you wish to install
Oracle Apps R12 for more than once its better to stage R12 software disk. This will also be helpful as you won't have to insert CD's manually during installation. Follow Page 29 or 1-13 of Oracle R12 Installation Guide to Create Staging Area.
Here is steps for creating staging on Linux
1. Verify you have perl version 5.0053 and higher (perl -v)
2. Run adautostg.pl from $StartHereCD/Disk1/rapidwiz/ (perl /../../.../adautostg.pl)
If you have downloaded Disks from edelivery this script is under zip file B42091-01_3of5.zip on Start Here Disk
For New Oracle Apps R12 Installation there are two options - Express Install & Standard Install (Express - Not much options available & it will do single user single node Install). Choose Standard Install for your customized configuration.
If you have selected Express Install you can't install it from root account , you have to use any other operating system account like oracle
Start Oracle Apps R12 Installation
To start Installation execute rapidwiz from startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz/ either from disk or from staging area if you have created one.
On Next two screen you have to accept license agreement & enter CSI number(type anything) and accept agreement.
In this screen you have option to select new configuration or an existing configuration (If this is a reinstall or from another instance or second node)
You have to select port pool , if this is first install on this machine then select any port pool else make sure ports are not conflicting with any other software. For me 3 is lucky number so I just picked it ;-) and Installation was successful for me)
In this screen enter database related configuration. I had to create base directory manually as it was erroring out for me.
Make sure users & groups you mention in this screen are already created on linux machine which you install (on VMWare).
Enter Application Tier Configuration on this screen . Notice Instance Directory which is new in Oracle Applications R12 which I am going to cover in future.
This screen will show you node information (Database Tier & Application Tier)
On clicking next , all prereq checks are made related to port availability, Host & domain name checks, file space .....
Fix related issues if any check fails .
This completes your setup task for installation & installer will prompt you to confirm Oracle Applications R12 Installation.
If you hit any issues during installation please raise them in forum at http://teachMeOracle.com/forum and Apps DBA Guru's will be there to assist you.

Pre and Post Requisites for Installation
Request Flow Charts
- Load Balance
- Shared and Stage Appl_Top
- Application Server iAS
- Form and Report Generatation
System Administration Jobs
Does this suffice and my approach.?
Would you like to add something here, if yes, then please do.
Very good , this covers almost all components :)
By the way, my name is Kamal Kant and am Practice Head for a Finance Company in India.
I was feeling like to upgrade my skill as I am in Core Oracle DBA job for the last almost 10 years.
So I am very keen to learn Oracle Apps.
I am taking your site as a master site from where I am following every step.
I will keep you bothering with my findings and questions. :-)

Your information is really usefull for me many times.
Could you please help for the following things:
1. I installed vmware server
2. Create virutal Machine
3. Installed Red hat linux
Now I want to install oracle 11i apps from CD.
I logged in as root and run the
but an error occur:
[root@localhost Disk1]# ./rapidwiz/rapidwiz
Rapid Install Wizard is validating your file system......
Rapid Install found an already existing /tmp/RapidInstall directory.Please make sure that no other instance of Rapid Install is running
or that the previous Rapid Install session completed. If the area
in /tmp/RapidInstall is no longer being used, it must be completely
removed before starting up a new Rapid Install session.
SO, ACCORDING TO THE ABOVE ERROR I TRIED TO DELETE THE RapidInstall folder under /tmp/ But its not deleted.
[root@localhost tmp]# ls
gconfd-root mapping-root orbit-senthil xses-root.yzWetO
gconfd-senthil mapping-senthil RapidInstall
keyring-9zIFeQ orbit-root ssh-BcIMz23870
[root@localhost tmp]# rm -r RapidInstall
rm: descend into directory `RapidInstall'? y
rm: descend into directory `RapidInstall/jlib'? y
rm: descend into directory `RapidInstall/jlib/java'? y
rm: descend into directory `RapidInstall/jlib/java/oracle'?
Please let help me is there any prerequiste like JDK and any other linux related tools?
To delete recursive with force option use
rm -rf RapidInstall
On Linux If this is R12 you need not to install anything but if this is 11i as per install doc you need to first install JDK .
Install JDK 1.3.1 or 1.4.2 on linux any then run installer once again .
nice to see your efforts!!!
i have installed a r12 on linux on my sandbox environment. it was working fine. i was able to run concurrent programs etc. now suddenly when i put the URL on my browser i.e.
i don't receive a login screen.
the browser shows the status of done at the left bottom corner, but the login screen is not coming up.
i saw the Apache logs but there were none created there.
could you please suggest where could exactly be the problem
Kapil is web server Up ?
Restart services & check for
netstat -an | grep [web_port]
to see if web server is listning on that port

the webserver is up..
[oracle@uranus oracle]$ netstat -an|grep 8043
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:8043 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN

Hi, I am not a DBA and even dont intend to be, however, i want to install apps r12.1 on my laptop. I have 4 GB ram and 500 gb ext. hdd and windows 7 OS. I have installed vmware and Linux OEL ver 4 with kernel version 2.6.9-184.108.40.206.1.ELsmp with 3GB Ram allocation. I run apps setup every thing goes fine, but post install checks return only DB, env file, dbc file successful and all other HTTP, JSP, Login page etc failed. I read few blogs and reduced SGA_Target from 1G to 500M, database can be started manually but still post install checks fail. What else do i need to do
I have installed R12.1.1 on VMware server successfully, NAT connect in VMware is working fine. I can connect to the server through IP using putty, but not with hostname.
and hence I cannot be able to connect to server from Browser in windows using hostname.domainname:port/
can you help me setting local DNS setup in VMware. so that I can access Application installed in VMware from Browser in windows?
Thanks in Advance,
