Missing Java library


The above failure is due to a missing java library file, this can be fixed with the below.

$ORACLE_HOME/javavm/jdk/jdk7/lib/libjavavm12.a lib to $ORACLE_HOME/lib/

If your quick you can copy it whilst rapidwiz is installing the Oracle Home, otherwise you will have to clean-up the oraInventory and star rapidwiz again.

RMAN failure

The installer will try to restore the data files using RMAN, previous releases just unzipped the files, the installer will continue for a while until.

RMAN-04014: startup failed: ORA-01127: database name ‘OLDDBNAME’ exceeds size limit of 8 characters

This can be fixed by updating the RMANinit.ora file and restarting rapidwiz e.g.


Perl Segmentation fault

Another, problem you may encounter with your Oracle EBS R12.2.5 install is a perl ‘Segmentation fault’

$ pwd
$ ./perl -v
Segmentation fault

$ mv perl/ perl.old/
$ mkdir perl

Change directory back to your downloaded version and re-compile.

$ cd
$ cd perl/perl-5.14.1
$./Configure -des -Dprefix=$ORACLE_HOME/perl -Doptimize=-O3 -Dusethreads -Duseithreads -Duserelocatableinc ; make clean ; make ; make install

$ cd $ORACLE_HOME/perl
$ rm -rf lib/ man/
$ cp -r ../perl.old/lib/ .
$ cp -r ../perl.old/man/ .
$ cp ../perl.old/bin/dbilogstrip bin/
$ cp ../perl.old/bin/dbiprof bin/
$ cp ../perl.old/bin/dbiproxy bin/
$ cp ../perl.old/bin/ora_explain bin/

Rapidwiz Completion

Once the installed is complete you can now confirm your EBS and database versions using the following:

SQL> select release_name from apps.fnd_product_groups;
SQL> select * from v$version;
