Installing EBS 12.1.1 on Redhat ES 6.0 x86_64

I wrote this note before EBS 12.1.1 was certified against RH6 (06May2011), and suggest that this only gets implemented on TEST systems. I first show all the errors I got during the installation process, how to correct them, and the I show screenshots from all the installation windows, with descriptions should it be required

The below needs to be done after a full installation of Redhat 6 x86_64 is done.

  • Install the following RPM's - exact versions as shown

[root@oraclerh6pw7 rapidwiz]#

 

 

Solution:

 

upgrade to rapidwiz version 12.1.1.11 OR move /usr/bin/unzip to /usr/bin/unzip6, and cp unzip v5 from the startCD directory from the staging area to /usr/bin/unzip

 

Download and Install patch p8639046_R12_GENERIC.zip to overcome this issue, and make sure the unzip from the new patch is in the path . The other option is also to overwrite /usr/bin/unzip, with the one from the patch, after making a proper backup of it. RH6 comes with unzip6, but EBS 12.1.1 searches for unzip5*

 

--> Download patch p8639046_R12_GENERIC.zip and copy in R12 Stage area.

 

--> unzip patch in stage R12 Stage directory "/R12_Stage"

 

/R12_Stage

bash-3.00$ ls

oraAppDB oraDB oraiAS startCD

oraApps oraNLS p8639046_R12_GENERIC.zip

bash-3.00$

 

use command:

 

unzip -o p8639046_R12_GENERIC.zip

 

--> confirm the version of rapidwiz with command:

 

--> Execute command from "/R12_Stage/startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz

 

bash-3.00# ./RapidWizVersion

 

Old version of rapidwiz: 12.1.1.9
