    Install PeopleSoft FSCM9.1 on Oracle VM

    Jurgen2015
      Hi,

      I want to install FSCM9.1 on my laptop 64bit.
      I have downloaded;
      1. Oracle VM Box
      2. Oracle VM Server
      3. Oracle VM manager
      3. FSCM Templates

      Can you guide me thru on how I'm going to start my installation and whats the proper sequence? Do I need to download additional files?

      Thanks JR


      Update;
      1. I mange to install Oracle Virtual Box
      2. Install Oracle Serevr 2.2.0 inside Oracle Virtual Box
      3. Tried to Install Oracle VM Manager then I choose Create Oracle XE Database
      4. Get this error that disk / have 2600mb space installation failed...

      Question where do I increase this within the Virtual Box? Is my steps correct? Appreciate assistance

      Thanks

          Hi,

          You can find all documentation needed to install FSCM 9.1 VM here
          http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/vm/peoplesoft-fscm-173464.html

          The sequence you describe is correct.
          I do think you are missing a step.

          Oracle VM manager should be installed on a separate Linux machine than the Oracle VM Server.
          You will have to create another vm with Linux to run Oracle VM Manager.
          So you will have one vm with Oracle VM Server and another vm with Oracle VM Manager with the XE Database.

          See this doc (Oracle VM: Quick Start Guide) which describes the installation steps of Oracle VM Server and Oracle VM Manager
          http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/vm/ovm3-quick-start-guide-wp-516656.pdf

            Has anyone tried to install all of this on a laptop? Or does the manager and server really have to be on separate hardware? I would like to install everything on my laptop but I have a feeling several VM's running is going to kill performance.
            Thanks

              Yes, you are absolutely right.
              PeopleSoft it self should be installed on several servers with enough memory, do not forget this is an ERP system that is not made to be run a laptop. Now you are asking if PeopleSoft can be hosted an a VM Server on a laptop?
              Theoretically this is all possible with VirtualBox or VMWare or whatever virtualization software, but you would need one hell of a laptop.
              De FSCM91 VM comes as two serparete vm, DB and PIA/appserver.
              So you will need to have the VM server installed, VM manager on another server (virtual or physical).
              After this you can use the the VM manager to import and create the two PeopleSoft vm's on the vm server (possible on a NAS)

                It can be run on a laptop, but it requires a lot of time to get Oracle VM server running properly. It expects VM's to be present on a SAN disk or something similar.

                I'm running a CS9.0 environment with PT8.51 on my laptop in two VM's with Windows Server 2008. It runs fine and uses about 6GB of memory. I'm planning on using the VM templates by modifying them a bit to run in VirtualBox:

                OVM templates cannot currently run unmodified in Oracle VM VirtualBox. The raw disk image
                format in which the VM templates are delivered cannot be read directly by VirtualBox. It is however
                possible to use VirtualBox utilities in order to convert the raw disk images to a format that can be used
                directly by VirtualBox. This section assumes that VirtualBox 4 or later has been installed on the
                system on which the virtual appliance will be running.

                http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E27263_01/psft/acrobat/PeopleSoftOVMTemplatesDevelopmentCustomizationGuide.pdf

                I'd suggest you start reading that document if you want to do something similar.

                        127.0.0.1 or localhost refer to the server localhost/IP address. It cannot be used by remote client. You should use the fixed IP address of the VM server itself.

                        Nicolas.

                          Sorry I'm new to VM/Linux and trying to learn PS FIN. How do I get the VM server fixed IP.

                          Appreciate your assistance.

                            Well, it's rather a long journey you are going to, and you probably did not choose the easiest one. I would advise you to run all on a Windows machine, at least to start for the 1st time it's good enough.
                            Here you have an other layer within OVM to know and manage.
                            Anyway, the server hosting Oracle VM Manager should have a fixed IP address that you could have defined during the Linux installation, didn't you ?
