Learnings (Issues faced) during Oracle Apps R12 Installation

Posted on April 16, 2007. Filed under: R12 |

Following are the issues which were faced during Oracle Apps R12 installation on Windows.

1. DVD Staging Error

We proceeded with the installation with 75% of staging but RapidInstaller has intelligence built in to verify the complete staging before starting installation. Installation errored out at this stage. Only option is to stage all the DVD’s before starting installation. 🙂

DVD Error

2. Invalid Microsoft VC location

Visual Studio directory value shouldnt be set including the bin directory, if set will result in cl.exe is not available error.

3. Missing Host Entries

Post install checks failed due to missing host entries. The primary reason being the server was not registered with the DNS and rapidinstall couldnt resolve the hostname with the IP address. Made entry in C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts and restarted OPMN service which didnt start due to missing registry entry. Check this link for more information.

Missing Host Entry2

Missing Host Entry3

After making entries in host file and starting OPMN serivce all post install checks went through sucessfully.

Really wonderful post…

I am also doing an R12 install on sun solaris and hit a problem around 75% with the following error:

Processing Disk14….

AC-00023: Error: Exception: java.io.FileNotFoundException: /apps/bss/OIC4AT/inst/apps/OIC4AT

_nus730pl/temp/restart.xml (Permission denied) occured while writing Context file – /apps/bs

I am running the install over a staged NFS mount. Is this the same problem you faced?
