I am using the Windows 7 OS to download the install the OEID 3.1.
I started with downloading all the Endeca Server related components.
The initial challenges to the server install and the steps taken to rectify it inlcuded but are not limited to:
1. Installing ADF failed - changed the eun_endecaserver_install.bat -- made an entry for C: after cd %TMPFOLDER%\bin
2. created a temp directory on my c drive and mentioned the same as part of the startup script.
3. Removed JDK 7 and installed JDK6, changed the jreLoc path accordingly everywhere as well.
4.Installed the ADF and Endeca server manually.
5. Changed the install mode from PROD to DEV for it to work on Windows 7
Although I am getting a message saying that both the ADF and the Endeca Server installed correctly , when I try to create a weblogic domain for the Endeca server I just dont see an option for the Endeca server under "Create a domain configured automatically to support the following products". Note here that it does show the option for OracleJRF
When I dug further I am getting a feeling that the EndecaServer did not install completely, although I got a successfull message I do not see a bin directory under C:\Oracle\middleware\EndecaServer7.6.1\install
Am I doing anything wrong here or is it the version of Windows that I have on my machine that is causing the issue ?
Also, is there any other way to manually deploy the endecaserver on the Weblogic that I have installed, but I guess that would only be possible if the Endecaserver directory was installed correctly.
Any response/inputs would be appreciated
I think your feeling is right that Endeca Server did not install completely, even though you got a successful message. I experienced this once myself.
Your C:\Oracle\Middleware\EndecaServer7.6.1 directory should have a number of directories such as apis, common, endeca-cmd, endeca-server, and so on. In particular, the "common" directory contains the template files that are used to create the WebLogic domain for Endeca Server. If these directories are not there, then you'll have to re-install Endeca Server.
You should be able to de-install ES using the instructions in the Install Guide (i.e., without uninstalling WebLogic and ADF). Use the C:\Oracle\Middleware\EndecaServer7.6.1\oui\bin\setup.exe program with the -deinstall and -jreLoc flags. (No need to delete the ES domain, as you couldn't create one.) Then manually run the Endeca Server installer, as described in Chapter 5 of the Install Guide.
Thanks much for your response. While I try to de install the Endeca Server and Install it again (which I think I did already but will do it again). I just want to know if you were able to get the Endeca Server working on Windows 7 ?
My opinion is that these issues are being caused since I am trying to run this setup in a Windows 7 machine, whereas most blogs/links mention installation on Windows 2008.
