This article applies to version 12.0.4.
I recommend you to start with this article to get R12 up and running.
- Oracle E-Business Suite – EBS
- Rapid Install patch 6919017
Boot into Ubuntu and transfer files to the /oracle partition for example /oracle/install
Boot into OEL and login as oracle.
Alternatively you can unzip from NTFS to /oracle using Ubuntu but be sure to set file ownership correctly when in OEL:
$ chown –R oracle:oracle /oracle
Unzip EBS files into /oracle/stage:
$ ./unzip.sh V*
Unzip patch 6919017 into /oracle/stage
$ ./unzip.sh p6919017*
I used this script (unzip.sh):
if [ -z “$1” ]
echo “enter filename with wildcard to unzip”
for zipfile in $SOURCE/$1.zip
unzip -o $zipfile -d /oracle/stage
Also I had a bug once caused by security issues in the stage directory – to fix do this:
$ chmod –R 777 /oracle/stage/startCD
Always do this in OEL as the oracle user.
Many other people has described this process for example:
Use /oracle as base directory though. This will create EBS in /oracle/VIS.
This directory can easily be moved around to different disks as long as you keep the mount point to /oracle.
I call the rapidwiz using a script – useful if you have to restart:
