Specify if you want to upgrade the product you selected in Select Product Type.

If the Install Wizard detected that Oracle Beekeeper version 1.3 is installed in your computer, specify Yes to upgrade it to Oracle Beekeeper version 1.4.1.

If you specify No, the Install Wizard will proceed to install Oracle Beekeeper version 1.4.1 in a new Oracle home.

Select from the drop down box the complete path of the Oracle Beehive product you want to upgrade.

The drop down box will only contain Oracle Beehive home paths with the following characteristics:

  • Contains Oracle Beekeeper version 1.3

  • Is registered in the central Oracle Universal Installer inventory of the computer from which you started the Install Wizard

Prerequisite Checks

This screen displays the prerequisite checks that the Install Wizard runs. It verifies that the host (where you are upgrading to Oracle Beekeeper) meets all minimum requirements.

Some of the platform-independent checks that the Install Wizard performs include:

  • Operating system certification (or version)

  • Operating system patches and packages

  • Security kernel parameters

  • Memory

  • Swap space

  • Disk space

  • In Microsoft Windows, ensuring that the Window user for Oracle Beehive installation has administrative privileges.

If an automatic check fails, fix it and click Retry.


If the disk space check fails and after clicking Retry (after fixing the low disk space issue) the check states "Not Executed," exit the Install Wizard and start it again.

In Microsoft Windows, The Windows user indicated in the Browse and Select: File or Directory screen must belong to the "Log on as a batch job" policy of the agent machine.

To add a user to this policy, click Start, Programs, Administrative Tools, and then Local Security Policy. In Local Security Settings, expand Local Policies, expand Local Policies, and then click User Rights Assignment. Double-click the policy Log on as a batch job. Click Add User or Group to add the user.


For details on why a check failed, select the check box against it and see the details in the description box at the bottom of the screen.

Upgrade Summary

The Upgrade Summary screen presents a summary of the options you have specified so far:

  • Space Requirements: The disk space required to upgrade the product. The space requirement appears in a different color if the disk space available is less than what is required.


    The space requirements shown on this screen do not include the space required in the target database.

    The space requirements shown on this screen also might differ slightly from the actual space the component occupies on the installation disk. This is because of the differences in the disk configurations. For example, the space required on one hard drive might differ from the space required on another hard drive that uses different block size or that is managed by a different file system.

  • Inventory Location: The location of the oraInventory directory where all the installation information about your product will be stored.

  • Product: The name of the product you are upgrading, Oracle Beekeeper

  • Interview Details: The details of your inputs for the other screens, such as:
