    Oracle SOA Suite Installation Part I : Database Installation
    Wednesday, June 13, 2007
    Register for R12 upgrade
    In next few posts I’ll cover installation of SOA Suite (Service Oriented Architecture Suite) which is one of the components in Oracle Fusion Middleware. For more information on Oracle Fusion Middleware and its various components and overview visit

    Fusion Middleware Part I
    Fusion Middleware Part I

    --In order to install SOA suite version 10.1.3.X you need Database version 10.2.X or higher to hold schema for BPEL, ESB, WSM ....
    --This database can exist on same machine (but under different ORACLE_HOME) or can be on different machine where you are planning to install SOA.
    --For this installation demo, I installing Database release on same machine under ORACLE_HOME.
    --This demo installation is on Redhat Linux ES 3 which is on VMWare.

    Install Oracle Database

    Software for Oracle Database can be downloaded from this link

    Operating System Prereq.
    For linux following version are supported for database version at time of writing this doc

    I picked up Red hat ES -3 (Enterprise Server) as operating system.

    Packages and Kernel Parameters mentioned below are for database on Red Hat linux Version 3 (Check Installation Documentation if your operating system version differs)

    Following packages with atleast following version should be installed

    To check if package/rpm is installed
    rpm –qa grep {rpm_name} (From root)

    To install package/rpm
    rpm –ivh {rpm_name} (From root)

    Kernel Parameter
    Make sure you add following entry in /etc/sysctl.conf

    After adding these entries execute below command to take these parameters in to effect

    sysctl –p /etc/sysctl.conf

    Unzip software you downloaded above as


    Starting Database Installation
    Start Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) by running

    ./runInstaller (from location where you unzipped database) *Use operating system user like oracle or orainstall (don’t execute runInstaller from root user)

    With this screen you get option to do basic database installation where as I opted for Advanced Installation (With Advanced Installation Option you get flexibility on where to keep database and various other options). You can also choose Basic Installation and OUI will ask only basic question and for rest values it will take default (pre configured) values.

    Again you have three options for type of installation for your database (Choose one as per your requirement, if you are not sure which one to pick, leave default i.e. Enterprise Edition)

    This is important detail which is prompting for Database ORACLE_HOME Name and Destination Path.

    ORACLE_HOME is always unique per system which identifies oracle software installed (Oracle Software can be database, application server or various other oracle software)
    PATH is directory where your oracle database software will be installed (Please note Oracle Software is not same as Oracle Data files)

    In my case Oracle Database 10.2.X requires minimum 900 MB memory but just had 750 MB allocated to Virtual Machine on which I am installing this database so I got warning related to memory. If you get warning related to memory you can ignore it (Not for Production or UAT deployment)

    In above screen you have option to Create Database, Configure ASM (more coming on ASM with RAC soon ...) or Install database software only.

    If you select database software only you can create database later as well (this option will only install oracle database software and will not create any database)

    Leave default General Purpose in above screen

    If you have selected “Create a Database” above on this screen you have option to define SID and Global Database name for database which we are going to create with install. (You can leave default “orcl” SID or change like “SOADEV” to uniquely identify this database that it is going to be used with SOA Suite)

    Leave default “Database Control Management” or choose option 1 if you have Grid Control Agents installed on machine on which you are trying to install this database.

    Here you can specify type of storage management for database (SOADEV) which you are going to install. This storage management as seen in image can be File System, ASM or Raw device.

    Specify Database file location if you choose File System as storage management. (Database file location can exist under ORACLE_HOME or any other location. * better keep this different from ORACLE_HOME for better management)

    Choose password for your various schema (For security reasons, don’t choose same password for all accounts on production instance)

    Click on “Install” button to start your installation (Installation may take 30 minutes to 3 hours depending on your machine)

    If you wish to unlock non system accounts click on “Password Management” or click “OK” for unlocking them later. (For SOA Suite Installation, you can leave them locked)

    execute command from root user as shown blow

    This will complete your database installation for SOA Suite Installation.

    If you wish to start/stop oracle database installed above

    export ORACLE_HOME = /home/oracle/product/10.2.0/db
    export ORACLE_SID = SOADEV
    export PATH = $PATH:$ORACLE_HOME/bin

    (Where ORACLE_HOME and ORACLE_SID we entered above while installing database)

    Stopping database services
    sqlplus “/as sysdba”
    SQL> shutdown immediate
    lsnrctl stop

    Starting database services
    lsnrctl start
    sqlplus “/as sysdba”
    SQL> start

    For SOA Suite installation stay tuned (coming soon...)
