Hi

I am trying to install Oracle Application 11i on Windows 2003 server

I have created an staging are in drive d:(because the DVD ROM from the server was giving some errors reading the Oracle DVD on running adautostg.pl, I have created the staging manually(created the folders startCD, oraApps, oraDB, oraiAS, oraAppDB, and copy all the DVD’s in to)

I have installed the CYGWIN(to use as MKS Toolkit) and i have install Visual C++, into a single folder with no spaces etc.
I think I have installed all this correctly

Now when I run the rapid install (rapidwiz.cmd) the rapid install start, I can configure all me configuration settings etc. The entire test went ok, and the install starts...

Here is the problem. The install stuck in the first install… it says completed unzip 0 of 144(on the step 1 of 5).
It stuck in the d:\Stage11i\OracleDB\visdb\9.2.0\ temp\ VIS_domain\adrun9i.cmd

And I look at the log file and I don’t see any errors.
The log file ends with this

#####################################
Enter the location of the CD labeled Oracle Applications Rapid Install - RDBMS  Disk 1 :
Checking Disk contents in - D:\Stage11i\startCD\Disk1\rapidwiz
Checking Disk contents in - D:\Stage11i\oraDB\Disk1
Checking Disk contents in - D:\Stage11i\oraDB\Disk1
UnzipCount:114
Processing Disk1....

#####################################

Anyone can say what I am doing wrong?

Hi again

After a better look at the log, the only error I see is this

#####################
 command : cmd.exe /c D:\Stage11i\startCD\Disk1\rapidwiz\bin\adchkutl.cmd C:\cygwin\bin C:\VisualC2005

 There was an error while running the command  - cmd.exe /c D:\Stage11i\startCD\Disk1\rapidwiz\bin\adchkutl.cmd C:\cygwin\bin

C:\VisualC2005
The system cannot find the path specified.

#######################

But the C:\VisualC2005 is correct. Is my Visual C++ folder. Or must i choose any subfolder inside of the C:\VisualC2005 ?

Tanks Again

Installation of Applications 11 is a hard task.
Visit the OTN forums for more details.

I found this for you

http://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?messageID=1455770

STEP I : OS Installation (Windows based)

Pentium 4, 160GB HDD, 1 GB Ram Memory minimum required and keep atleast 20 GB for staging in separate partition.

Install Windows XP / 2003 Server Edition

Setup required in Windows 2003 :
- Create the Active Directory & setup the Domain
- Create ‘Oracle’ User Account and make the member of ‘Administrators & Domain Users’ groups
- Restart the server.

Setup required in Windows XP :-

Add the Domain name in DNS Suffix at DNS, Network Connection setting.

Update the c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file as per the given domain like follows.
127.0.0.1 localhost
127.0.0.1 localhost.streed.com

STEP II: VC++ & MKS Toolkit Installation

Logon as Oracle User

Install VC++ Software

VC++ should be first installed before installing MKS & GNUMAKE
- Install Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 to Target directory C:\MSVC
- Install Common files to C:\MSVC\common

Note : When Visual C++ is installed, let the installer register all environment variables. This will allow executables to be linked automatically for the command line execution.

Restart the system.

Install MKS Tool kit 8.0

Run Setup from MKSTOOL CD to the Destination folder C:\MKSTOOL
This will Create additional directory under C:\MKSTOOL\MKSNT

Restart the server.

How to Download and Configure GNUMAKE

NOTE: Please, be aware that you must install Visual C++ *BEFORE* installing GNUMAKE,
because its installation process involves linking executables.

1) Before downloading GNUMAKE, you will need to acquire some utilities which will be used for unpacking files.

Download URL for make utility : ftp://ftp.gnu.org & ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/make/
Download URL for gunzip & tar utilities : http://www.cs.utah.edu/classes/cs4962/emacs/emacs.html

Make-3.77.tar.gz
gunzip-1.2.4-i386.exe
tar-1.11.2a.exe


2) Download the above 3 files and place them into C:\GNUMAKE folder
Rename gunzip-1.2.4-i386.exe to gunzip.exe
Rename tar-1.11.2a.exe to tar.exe

3) Unpack make-3.77.tar.gz file using gunzip.exe from a Command Prompt Window
Example: C:\GNUMAKE>gunzip make-3.77.tar.gz (.gz will be removed)

4) UnTAR the file make-3.77.tar, with the following command: C:\GNUMAKE>tar -xvf make-3.77.tar
This will create a new subdirectory called MAKE-3.77 under C:\GNUMAKE, the original directory.

5) Run build_w32.bat from C:\GNUMAKE\make-3.77 folder. It creates GNUMAKE.EXE in WinRel folder. Run the same build_w32.bat file twice for gnumake.exe creation.

6) Also run config.bat from C:\GNUMAKE\MAKE-3.77 folder

7) Copy make.exe from C:\MKSTOOL\MKSNT to C:\GNUMAKE\make-3.77\WinRel &
C:\GNUMAKE\make-3.77\WinDebug & C:\Windows\System32 folders.

Just to test & confirm the path, run the following in the command prompt.

(1)which.exe (2) make.exe (3) gnumake.exe

8) Path should be set in mycomputer/environment variables/System Variables like follows.

C:\MSVC\Bin;C:\GNUMAKE\make-3.77\WinRel;C:\GNUMAKE\make-3.77\WinDebug;
C:\GNUMAKE\make-3.77;C:\MKSTOOL \bin;C:\MKSTOOL \bin\X11;C:\MKSTOOL \mksnt;

Restart the System.

STEP III :

Setup the Staging Area for Apps 11i Installation

Directories to Create under D:\Stage11i

1.startCD { Start Here DVD ( Disk 1)}

2.oraApps { Appltop DVD1 (Disk 1 to Disk 6)}

3.oraDB {RDBMS DVD 1( Disk 1 to Disk 3)}

4.oraiAS {Tools Disk DVD (Disk 1 to Disk 3)}

5.oraAppDB {Database Disk DVD 3 nos (Disk 1 to Disk 19)}

Use xcopy /e e:\. Command for copying the entire CD into relevant folders.

Stage all the cd’s in the same manner.


STEP IV :

Start the installation (Generally takes 87GB including OS, VisionDB & 11i installation. Vision DB alone takes 60GB)

CD d:\stage11i\startcd\disk1\rapidwiz\rapidwiz.cmd

Please change the directories name as per directories created earlier. Example: C:\MKSTOOL\MKSNT
C:\MSVC\VC98.

Rapidwiz will start the validation and it should show all green signals, if its fails in any one of the check list, rectify the error before proceeding further.

After passing all the validation check lists sucessfully, the installation takes about few hours to complete without user intervention.

Finally, Restart the system.

Hi schwertner

Tank you for your reply.

I have done all that before.

The error that I see in the log(C:\VisualC2005 The system cannot find the path specified.), problem resolved. The path must be C:\VisualC2005\VC, and now I have no error in the log for this issue.

I have encounter other problems. And many of them were zip files problems. The Oracle DVD´s have some problems.

After I download all the stating are again I am trying to install all again.

But this is a hard task, because when I find a problem (and can’t resolve during install) I must uninstall all, clear all registry, and services from Windows and start again.

The install is right now running; let me see if this time all goes right.

Many tks

See also PATH environment variable, is there a path to the C directory.
Restart of the box is also helpful.

Hi

Ok my first problem was the Oracle DVD that have some corrupt files. And when i create the staging area that files are corrupt and the zip don't unzip them.

About the Visual studio path, yes the path was wrong, and another issue is that the installation folder cant have any spaces. On Oracle Applications installation, none of the tools folders can have any space. Oracle don't like folder with spaces and then give some errors that are difficult to see.

So schwertner, in one part you are correct(in the C path), but this was not my problem. But latter one that problem will become a big problem, because the Applications cant read that path.

So many tanks for your help on this part.
