    First time oracle R12 installation doubts

    Ramesh9158

      Hi All,

       

      Could you please clarify these doubts..?

       

      cygwin installation:

         1) Note id 414992.1 says to download and intall all packages of Cygwin..?Many sites are saying to install only selected packages..?Which among these 2 is correct?.

         2)Few packages like ash are missing to select as per many sites...?What should be done with missing packages...?


      APPS installation:

        1) is that Creating stage manually is wrong...?If we have all files in seperate DVDs and re-stage manually as per the structure..will installation fail?

       

       

      Thanks

          It used to be selected packages before then Oracle changed the doc to download/install all packages.

           

          2)Few packages like ash are missing to select as per many sites...?What should be done with missing packages...?

           

          When you download all packages you should have them installed.


          1) is that Creating stage manually is wrong...?If we have all files in seperate DVDs and re-stage manually as per the structure..will installation fail?

           

          Yes, and if you have the DVDs then you should follow the steps in the installation manual -- http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E18727_01/doc.121/e12842/T422699i4773.htm#3708211

           

          Thanks,

            Thanks Hussein,

             

            1.Now What should we do?Download all packages and only selective packages?

            2.New Version of Cygwin is not giving option to select  Default Text File Type on Installation what to do..?

            3.I have DVDs and those are not similar to oracle media packs..Custom one burned by us..One with "startCD disks and oraApps disks"..Now What to do to create structures..?

             

            Thanks,

              1. Download all packages.

               

              2. What do you mean? Can you provide a screenshot?

               

              3. I don't know what structure you are referring to, but if the stage area directory was already created and you copied them to some DVDs, then you just need to copy them back.

               

              Thanks,

                The settings in the screenshot you provided are correct, so just click on Next and continue with the installation.

                  Thanks Hussein...

                   

                  I installed R12 Successfully by creating the Stage Manually in Windows 2003....

                   

                  But Every time When I resart the Server..Should I start the services every time using adstral.cmd..? Wont it be all the Windows Services for Oracle started automatically...

                   

                  Here though Windows Services for Oracle started on start up of windows...I dont get login page..I am either restarting it using adstpal.cmd and adstrall.cmd...or running everytime adautocnf.cmd...Then only I am getting the page...

                   

                  Is the way that system behaves normally..?Or I am doing any mistakes...?

                    Is the startup type set to "Automatic" for all services?

                     

                    Can you find any error in Apache log files or in the application.log when you get a blank screen?

                     

                    Thanks,

                    Hussein
