    Forms 11.1.2 64 bit install and configure on Oracle Linux on VirtualBox

      Has anyone installed and configured Oracle forms and reports 11.1.2 64 bit on Oracle Linux (guest , version 5) on a WIndows 7 VirtualBox host ? I'm currently having issues creating the application instance during the configuration process. I've tinkered around with the hosts file and other network settings but to no avail. I'd like to check against a successful install if possible. Thanks.

          Whether you are installing in a vm or a native environment, the requirements will be the same. I recommend using a static address and ensuring it is noted in the hosts file. For example:
          I also recommend carefully reviewing the Sys Requirements doc as it covers most of the "gotcha" topics.


          Without the complete failure information, it is difficult to offer more than that. Also, note that VirtualBox is not a supported vm environment. Take a look at the following:

            Thanks for the response. I'll check the links. Last configuration attempt failed with the following details from the out log under oraInventory:

            opmnctl start: failed.

              There are a few known issues that might cause this error:

              1. TMP not accessible or not enough space
              2. Machine not configured with static IP address or address already in use on network
              3. Invalid or missing hostname or hostname already in use on network

                Thanks again for response . Hosts file currently looks like this:
       localhost.localdomain localhost
                ::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
       ol6-forms.localdomain ol6-forms

                The ol6-forms entry is an additional host entry and doesn't really appear to serve any purpose. The hostname is set to localhost.localdomain. The /etc/resolv.conf has the following entries:
                ; generated by /sbin/dhclient-script
                search group.net
