Downloading the Installation Files

  To download the installation files:

  1. Create a directory to store the EPM System files.

    You can download files to a shared drive, or to each machine in your deployment. If you are installing from a network drive, map this drive. This directory is referred to as /download_location in this procedure.

    Tip:

    Oracle recommends that you download files to a shared drive.

  2. Download the following files from the “Oracle Enterprise Performance Management System” media pack on the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud (http://edelivery.oracle.com/) site into /download_location. Note that some files are posted by platform; ensure that you download files for the platform you are using.

    • EPM System Installer (in EPM System Release 11.1.2.2.0 for platformName (Part 1)

    • ZIP files for the products you purchased. ZIP files include installation assemblies (product plug-in installation files for EPM System Installer).

      Review the Media Pack Readme on the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud to see which ZIP files to download depending on the products you purchased. (To see the Media Pack Readme, once you have selected the media pack, click Readme.)

  3. Unzip the EPM System Installer into /download_location.

    If you are prompted that any files already exist, click Yes to overwrite the files.

    Tip:

    Use a zip file extraction program that can handle long path names, such as 7-Zip.

    Unzip to a directory with no spaces in the name.

  4. Unzip the installation assemblies into the same directory (/download_location).

    If you are prompted that any files or common components already exist, click Yes to overwrite the files.

    The assemblies are automatically unzipped into an /assemblies directory.

    If you downloaded files to a central location, ensure that you unzip the following common files. If you downloaded files to multiple machines in your deployment, on each machine in the deployment, unzip the following common files. Unzip files for each operating system in a separate folder.

    • EPM System Release 11.1.2.2.0 for platformName (Part 1)

    • EPM System Release 11.1.2.2.0 for platformName (Part 2)

    • EPM System Release 11.1.2.2.0 for platformName (Part 3)

    • EPM System Release 11.1.2.2.0 for platformName (Part 4)

    Note the following information about preparing files for a distributed environment:

    • Even though you need these four ZIP files on each machine in the environment, install Foundation Services Web applications on only one machine (unless multiple instances are required for clustering).

    • On the machine on which you plan to administer the WebLogic Server, you must install all Web applications for all applications you plan to deploy on any machine in the environment. For more information, see Installing EPM System Products in a Distributed Environment.

  5. The /assemblies directory should include a subdirectory for each product that you want to install on this machine. Ensure that the /assemblies directory looks as follows:

    assemblies/
    		product/
    			version/
    				assembly.dat

    Note:

    ProductRef.inf might be in the /assemblies directory. It can remain without causing problems.

EPM System Installer can install a product only if the installation assembly files for the product are downloaded and unzipped to the correct location.
