Installation of 10g Application Server


1

Step 1: Install United Linux

This distribution of Linux is available through a special
license and available for download through OTN.

The installation is wizard driven, and the installer created
the relevant partiti
ons etc. The only manual input I had
was to specifiy the monitor, I chose Dell Laptop 1600, and
set the resolution to 1600x12000, this worked.

1.1

Hostname

I altered the hostname of the machine by editing the
following files:

/etc/host

/etc/HOSTNAME

2

Step 2: D
ownload Software

10g Application Server (9.0.4) is currently available for
download from OTN, you need to download the Linux
distribution, there should be four files named:

ias904_linux_disk[1234].cpio.gz

I also download the full installation guide and the

quick
installation guide for Linux.

Step 3: Prerequisites (quick installation guide)

The quick install guide for Linux does not specify how to
install the BI option, but I found the pre
-
requistites
section quick and easy to follow.

3.1

Packages

In order to d
etermine if a package was installed I used the
command:

rpm

qa | grep <package>

The only package I found missing was gcc_old
-
2.95.3,
which I found on CD2, I then installed it.

I was unsure about one of the package versions, the
documentation listed
libstd
c++
-
3.2.2
-
38

or higher, the
version I had installed was
libstdc++
-
3.2
-
45. I looked on
the CD, there was not a more recent release so decided to
run with this one.

I removed all the Java packages installed.


3.2

Ports

I downloaded patch
3167528

to implement th
is.

I didn’t know if I was using Network Information Service
(NIS), so ignored these steps.

3.3

DISPLAY

Do not set the display variable to <server_name>:0.0,
please
4.2

below.

Step 4:
Infrastructure
Installation

For the installatio
n I followed the process I would have
done for 9iAS release (this is officially 9.0.4), and
accepted defaults where possible, any problems and
deviations from this path are described below.

4.1

Infrastructure

Both the repository and the security were selected.

I got a link error ‘
ins_net_client.mk
’ errored while
creating


ntcontab.o
’. The solution I found was to install
the gcc package.

4.2

Configuration Assistants

During step 3 I had set up an entry in .bashrc to set the
DISPLAY environment variable to <server_
name>:0.0,
the database configuration assistant could not connect to
the X server with this configuration. The correct
configuration is to leave the DISPLAY variable set to :0.0

Step 5: Infrastructure Testing

In order to fully test the installation you sh
ould reboot
and then log in as the oracle user.

Edit the /etc/oratab file to change the following line:

asdb:/opt/oracle/inf:N

to

asdb:/opt/oracle/inf:Y

Run the following commands (assuming bash shell):

export ORACLE_HOME = /opt/oracle/inf

[insert correct
path here if different]

export ORACLE_SID=asdb

$ORACLE_HOME/bin/dbstart

$ORACLE_HOME/bin/lsnrctl start

$ORACLE_HOME/bin/oidmon start

$ORACLE_HOME/bin/emctl start iasconsole [optional
but worth checking for now]

It may also be necessary to go into the dcm s
hell to start
or check the status of some of the components.

5.1

Mozilla

10AS is certified against various browsers, even though
Mozilla is distributed with United Linux, the version
supplied is not certified, therefore it is necessary to
download and install
the newest available version of
Mozilla (must be 1.5 or greater).

5.2

Passwords

To check the passwords have been correctly
entered/setup, first navigation to:

http://server:port/oiddas

and select login, and use
orclad
min/<password entered during installation>. This
will verify the orcladmin account. Second navigate to:

http://server:1812
, use ias_admin/<password entered
during installation>, you will need to log in to access the
ad
ministration console.

Step 6: Mid Tier Installation

Once you are happy that the infrastructure is functioning
correctly, re
-
run the installer and then install the mid tier.

6.1

Configurtion options

Check all the components in the ‘select configuration
options’

dialogue.

6.2

Oracle Internet Directory

The host is the server name from the infrastructure
installation, the port is usually 3060, if you need to check
view the portlist.ini file.

The password is the one entered during the infrasctruture
installation.

Step 7
: Test Mid Tier Installation

In order to fully test the installation you should reboot
and then log in as the oracle user.

You will then need to start all the infrastructure processes
and the mid tier processes.

7.1

Portal

The easiest way to see if the compone
nts are working
correctly is to run through a few screens of Portal, log in
as orcladmin and then try to access some of the
administration pages.

7.2

Additional Components

Components such as Reports and Discoverer may need
additional
configuration, which is beyond the scope of
this document.
