    Oracle R12 Vision installation failing on Windows 32 bit platform

    user10233122
      Hi All,
      I’m a techno-functional guy and not a DBA. I’m trying to install Oracle EBS R12.1.1 Vision instance for Windows 32 bit platform. My system configuration is as follows:
      OS: Windows XP Professional 32 bit, Service Pack 3
      CPU: Pentium Dual Core G860 3.0 GHz.
      Memory: 3.19 GB visible (actual 4GB )
      HDD: 1 TB

      I installed Windows XP and applied all the OS updates. I have followed all the steps detailed in various forums/blogs such as the ones found on :

      Oracle E-Business Suite R12 Installation Steps on Windows XP

      Or

      http://oraclelabs.com/index.php/2011/05/19/installing-oracle-applications-e-business-suite-r12-on-windows-xp-windows-2003-server/

      I have installed VC++ 8.0 (Visual Studio 2005), Cygwin, loop back adapter etc..
      I have downloaded Oracle R12 from www.edelivery.oracle.com and staged the files in C:\StageR12 directory.
      I tried installing Oracle R12 but the installation failed during step 2 of 5 with errors.
      Before I get to the errors, I want to highlight a few things I observed.
      1.     Step 1 of 5 i.e. installing 11g DB took about 55 mins, is that normal?
      2.     Step 2 of 5 took about 10 hours to Unzip 237 files. All the blogs I read, mentioned the whole installation takes a few hours. Why did it take 10 hours to unzip 237 files? I checked CPU and memory usage during unzip and they were both about 5% and less than 400MB.
      3.     After Unzipping 237 files, the log showed Disk37 unzipped while C:\StageR12\oraAppDB shows Disk 1 to 49. What happened to Disk38 to Disk49? Why weren’t they unzipped or are they supposed to be unzipped at a later stage?
      After the 237 files were unzipped in step 2 of 5, Oracle Installer tried to install those files but it failed with errors. Looking at the log files ( ApplyDatabase_03020759), the first error that occurs is:

      Connection could not be obtained; returning null

      -------------------ADX Database Utility Finished---------------

      Apparently, after installing Oracle 11g DB, step 2 could not start/access it and failed. Could someone please help me figure out what’s going on? What could be wrong with the installation process? Let me know if you need more information.
      I would really appreciate your help.
      Thanks,
      Sanjay

          You need more memory to install R12 -- R12 only requires at least 4 GB of RAM but since you are on 32-bit there is nothing much to do here.
          Trying to connect using SID...
          getConnectionUsingSID() -->
          JDBC URL: jdbc:oracle:thin:@sanjay.dabre.com:1521:VIS
          Exception occurred: java.sql.SQLException: ORA-01034: ORACLE not available
          ORA-27101: shared memory realm does not exist
          This indicates that the database was not created successfully (or it is down). Did you get any errors during the installation?

          Can you find any errors in the database log file?

          Does AutoConfig complete successfully or all tier nodes?

          Thanks,

            So, looking at this log, it seems the error occured in Step 1 of 5 but the install process continued to step 2 of 5 ? Please advise.

              Sanjay,

              Please check the contents of the alert_<SID>.log file to find out if the database was created successfully or not.

              Please collect all log files as per (How to locate the log files and troubleshoot Rapid Install for Release 12.0.x and 12.1.x [ID 452120.1]) and share it with us.

                Hi Hussein,
                I have deleted the previous installation and have reinstalled Windows with hopes of starting a fresh install, so all the log files are gone except the ones I backed up from $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/log/$CONTEXT_NAME and Oracle Inventory directories. I understand that the alert_<SID>.log would be at $ORACLE_HOME/admin/$CONTEXT_NAME/bdump/alert_$SID.log location which I did not backup. Is there anything in my current backed up logs that could tell me more about the errors? Or is my only option to retry the steps in your forum blog and see what the outcome is?

                Thanks,
                Sanjay

                      This is an OS issue, and you need to clean your event log file -- Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer > Windows Logs > Application > Clear Log (repeat the same for Security/Setup/System logs).

                        Hi Hussein,
                        I found the alert_vis.txt file in C:\orar12\db\tech_st\11.1.0\admin\VIS_Sanjay\diag\rdbms\vis\trace. Apparently, I reinstalled Windows but left the filesystem in place.Here's part of alert_vis.txt file. Please review it and let me know if you still think it was the OS event log that caused the error.
                        Thanks,
                        Sanjay

                          Hi Sanjay,
                          I found the alert_vis.txt file in C:\orar12\db\tech_st\11.1.0\admin\VIS_Sanjay\diag\rdbms\vis\trace. Apparently, I reinstalled Windows but left the filesystem in place.Here's part of alert_vis.txt file. Please review it and let me know if you still think it was the OS event log that caused the error.
                          From the error message, it looks like the event viewer was the issue, so please clear all those files and retry your installation.

                          Thanks,
                          Hussein

                              Hi Hussein,
                              I am following your instructions on Oracle E-Business Suite R12 Installation Steps on Windows XP and in the cygwin installation step, you have asked to manually select ash and diffutils in Base package and mktemp in Devel package. However I could not find these utilities on any of the mirror sites for cygwin. diffutils is available in Utils package and ash is in _obsolete package but mktemp is nowhere to be found. What should I do? Please advise.
                              Thanks,
                              Sanjay

                                Hi Sanjay,

                                Select "All -- Install" instead and make sure you unselect "Hide Obsolete Packages" check box.

                                Thanks,
                                Hussein

                                  Please also make sure your hostfile is correct. It should be as follows:

                                  127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
                                  [ip_address] [node_name].[domain_name] [node_name]

                                    Hi Hussein,
                                    I was finally able to get the installation of Vision R12 done. I installed all pacakges of Cygwin as you had suggested. The gcc.exe was missing so I copied gcc-4.exe instead and it worked fine. It took about 20 hours for the complete installation. Step 1 took about 1 hour. Step 2 took about 11 hours. Step 3 about 2 hours and step 4 almost 6 hours. Any idea why these steps took so long and any advice how I can reduce the times if I have to redo this again ? Would using two drives, one for staging and second one for install help?
                                    I really appreciate all your help.
                                    Thanks,
                                    Sanjay
