    Error in R12 installation on external hard drive

    Vijay Dhapola
      Hi,

      I'm trying to install R12 on oracle Linux 6.0 (installed in VMware) on external drive.

      I'm getting two issues

      1. Installation fails in Post installation check for JSP & Login Page .
      2. Laptop hangs due to VMware session.

      Below are my specification.

      1. 3 GB is allocated to VMware memory (out of 4 GB of Laptop)
      2. External hard disk size - 1 TB
      3. VMware disk size - 300 GB

      Please find the Log uploaded in below URL (Please click Download slow, it will wait for 25 sec and then again clilck download slow to get the files).

      db_07032203.log (0.09MB)
      http://www.filefactory.com/file/icol7fq7flf/n/db_07032203_log

      Since my laptop is not linked to any network hence I'm not sure how my /etc/hosts file should look like
      My host entries are

      127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain


      Please help me to install the R12

      Thanks and Regards
      Vijay

          I'm trying to install R12 on oracle Linux 6.0 (installed in VMware) on external drive.

          I'm getting two issues

          1. Installation fails in Post installation check for JSP & Login Page .
          Please make sure you completed all the steps in the installation docs.

          Oracle E-Business Suite Installation and Upgrade Notes Release 12 (12.1.1) for Linux x86-64 [ID 761566.1]
          2. Laptop hangs due to VMware session.

          Below are my specification.

          1. 3 GB is allocated to VMware memory (out of 4 GB of Laptop)
          2. External hard disk size - 1 TB
          3. VMware disk size - 300 GB
          You need at least 4 GB for R12 to be installed properly and have no performance issues, anything below 4 GB will cause performance issues with the installation and with the functionality of the application.

          Please help me to install the R12
          The error you are getting is because of the missing entry in the hosts file. Using localhost is not recommended and you need to have a static IP Address and set a hostname/domainname -- Please see the installation docs referenced above and (R12 Rapidwiz Fails on Post Installation Tasks : RW-50016, Timed Out( 100000 ) [ID 437152.1]) for details.

          Thanks,

              Hi Hussein,

              I've increased the VMware memory to 4 GB.

              #HOSTNAME=localhost.localdomain

                  Hi Hussein,

                  Thanks for your updated my HTTP was not Alive
                  and by using adopmnctl.sh help me to up ALL services. On Retry it help me install Oracle R12. I was able to login application using sysadmin (only when I've successfully installed it).

                  But now when I'm trying to UP database and application. The whole session is very very slow.
                  I'm using below command to start db and app.

                  addlnctl.sh start VIS
                  adstpall.sh apps/apps

                  I'm using 4 GB RAM (for VMware Linux 6.0).

                    This is expected with 4 GB of RAM. You need to increase the memory on your machine as Oracle EBS database/apps need at least 4 GB and you need to least 2 GB for the OS.

                      Hi Hussein,

                      Thanks for the reply.
                      My Laptop can support upto 8GB of DDR2 RAM.
                      Is 8GB of RAM willl be sufficient for running R12 without any issues ?

                      Thanks

                        Give 2 Gb ram to your pc and 6Gb to your vmmachine
