If you do not have direct access to the server that will host the Core Server and database, or if the server does not have a CD drive, use the tarball installation CDs and copy the files over the network. These instructions cover installing both the database and the Core Server.
A tarball installation has the following prerequisites:
The server must have 1 GB of free disk space for the installation files.
The installation program will compile some needed files. The Linux system must have the C/C++ Compiler and Tools installed (specifically,
glibc_devel), and the Oracle user (created below) must have execute permission on
To install the Application Configuration Console database on a Linux Server, you must create a new user and group, and then open two sessions to run some scripts, one as the new user and one as root.
Log in to the Linux server as a user who has permissions to create groups and users.
Create a dba group. If you are using the command line:
Create an Oracle user as a member of the dba group and specify the directory that you want to use for
ORACLE_HOME as the user's home directory, for example:
useradd –g dba –d /opt/mvOracle oracle
Create an installation directory, such as
Copy the four tarballs from the two CDs to the install directory.
Extract the tar files with
tar -xzvf. You should end up with two directories: mvOracleInstall and mvalent3.
Open a new shell and become the Oracle user.
./install.sh, running the root scripts from the root shell. You can safely ignore any warning messages about setting permissions on
When the installation completes, restart the server and then as root test
/tmp/mvinstall/mvalent3 directory to
Login again as Oracle (to load the correct profile and variables).
cd to the unzipped
Set up the database with this command:
$ sqlplus /nolog @setup_db.sql
Exit out of the Oracle shell when the database setup is complete.
Open a shell as the Application Configuration Console user.
Run the Core Server installation program using the following command (see Section 4.3, "Install the Application Configuration Console Server," for details on the installation):
After the Server installation is complete,
login/su as root and copy the
tomcat_init script from
chmod 755 the script.
tomcat_home and t
As root, do a
chkconfig --add tomcat.
