Oracle E-Business Suite R12.2.5 Fresh install – Part I

Oracle EBS R12.2.5 Installation

Oracle E-Business Suite R12.2.5 has been out a while now, so I thought it was about time that I took it for a test drive.

Steven Chan’s R12.2.5 Blog is a great place to start your planning, if your not a regular visitor to his Blog, probably a good time to start.

If you want to try our 12c, R12.2.5 is the first release to be shipped with Oracle 12.1.0.2.

Preparation

Before you begin you R12.2.5 make sure plan to spend some time downloading the R12.2.5 distribution from https://edelivery.oracle.com and the following patches from http://support.oracle.com

Also, make sure you have set your XDISPLAY set and it’s accessible, you can easily check this with xclock.

Virtual Machine Perl Issue

Finally before we start, some Oracle Virtual Box and VMware Fusion Linux user have reported issues with the perl version shipped in the 12.1.0.2 $ORACLE_HOME.

$ perl -v
Segmentation fault

To fix this I downloaded and un-tarred the zipped perl package.

$ cd
$ mkdir perl
$ cd perl/

$ curl -O http://www.cpan.org/src/5.0/perl-5.14.1.tar.gz
% Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current

$ tar -zxvf perl-5.14.1.tar.gz
