B Screens for the Installation Type - Install Software - Do Not Configure

This appendix contains the screenshots and descriptions for the screens that appear when you wish to install Oracle Web Tier using Oracle Universal Installer (by selecting Install Software - Do Not Configure option in Select Installation Type screen), and configure its components by manually running the configuration wizard after the installation is complete.

This appendix contains the following sections:

B.1 Screens for the Installation Flow

This section describes the screens for the installation flow, that is, when you choose Install Software - Do Not Configure as your installation type.

The section contains the following screens:

B.1.1 Specify Inventory Directory Screen (UNIX only)

Specify Inventory Directory screen
Description of the illustration install_inventory.gif

This screen appears for UNIX systems only; if this is your first Oracle installation on this host, you must specify the location of the inventory directory. This inventory directory is used by the installer to keep track of all Oracle products installed on the computer.

The default inventory location is USER_HOME/oraInventory.

In the Operating System Group name field, select the group whose members you want to grant access to the inventory directory; all members of this group will be able to install products on this system.

Click Ok to continue.

B.1.2 Inventory Location Confirmation Screen (UNIX Only)

Inventory Location Confirmation screen
Description of the illustration install_inventory_confirm.gif

This screen appears for UNIX systems only; you are asked to run the inventory_directory/createCentralInventory.sh script as root.

If you do not have root access on this system but wish to continue with the installation, select Continue installation with local inventory.

Click Ok to continue.

B.1.3 Welcome Screen

Welcome screen
Description of the illustration io_welcome.gif

B.1.4 Install Software Updates Screen

Install Software Updates screen
Description of the illustration io_install_sw_updates.gif

If you wish to search for and download software updates from My Oracle Support, then do the following:

  1. Select Search My Oracle Support for Updates.

  2. Enter User name and Password.

  3. Click Test Connection.

If you wish to search your local directory for updates, then do the following:

  1. Select Search Local Directory for Updates.

  2. Click Search For Updates.

If you wish to skip software updates, then select Skip Software Updates.

Click Next to continue.

B.1.5 Select Installation Type Screen

Select Installation Type screen
Description of the illustration io_sel_install_type.gif

The following are the Installation Types available.

  • Install and Configure

    This option will install the product binaries in an Oracle Home directory, and create and configure a working instance in an Oracle Instance directory.

    If you choose to install Oracle Web Tier, and associate it with the Fusion Middleware (EM) Control, then you should be able to begin configuring and managing your products using Enterprise Manager.

    Note:

    For more information about Oracle Home and Oracle Instance directories, see the "Installation Overview" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide.

  • Install Software - Do Not Configure

    This option only installs the software binaries in an Oracle Home directory. You must then manually run the Configuration Tool from your Web_Tier_ORACLE_HOME/bin (on UNIX operating systems) or Web_Tier_ORACLE_HOME\bin (on Windows operating systems) directory to configure your products before you can use them. This option can be used to quickly create multiple instances of the software that share a common disk.

Select Install Software - Do Not Configure.

Click Next to continue.

B.1.6 Prerequisite Checks Screen

Prerequisite Checks screen
Description of the illustration io_prerequisite_chks.gif

This screen shows whether the system requirements are met in order to install the software.

If there is a problem, a short error message appears in the bottom portion of the screen. Fix the error, and click Retry to try again.

If you want to ignore the error or warning messages and continue with the installation, click Continue.

To stop prerequisite checking for all components, click Abort.

Click Next to continue.

B.1.7 Specify Installation Location Screen

Specify Installation Location screen
Description of the illustration io_spec_inst_location.gif

Specify the following installation locations:

  • Oracle Middleware Home

    The absolute path to the directory where WebLogic Server was installed.

  • Oracle Home Directory

    The directory name for your Oracle home:

    • You can specify a pre-existing directory that you want to use as the Oracle home; the directory must be an empty directory.

    • You can specify the name of a new directory that will be created for you inside the Middleware home.

    Oracle Home directory is where your products will be installed. All software binaries will reside in this directory, and no runtime process can write to this directory.

Note:

This installation directory will be referred to as Web_Tier_ORACLE_HOME throughout the remainder of this document.

If you are performing an installation on a Windows operating system, be sure that your directory paths are valid, and do not contain double backslashes (\\).

For more information about the Middleware Home and Oracle Home directories, see "Understanding Oracle Fusion Middleware Concepts and Directory Structure" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Planning Guide.

Click Next to continue.

B.1.8 Specify Security Updates Screen

If you want to save this configuration to a text file (called a response file), click Save. You will be prompted for the location of name of the file you want to create (for example, silent_install.rsp). This file can be used later if you choose to perform the same installation from the command line. Some sample response files are provided on the CD-ROM in the Disk1/stage/Response (on UNIX operating systems) or Disk1\stage\Response (on Windows operating systems) directory. See Appendix D, "Silent Installation and Deinstallation" for more information.

Description of the illustration install_oracleroot_script.gif

This script sets up the proper permissions for the files and directories being installed.

If you want to quit before the installation is completed, click Cancel. Doing so will result in a partial installation; the portion of the software that was installed on your system before you click Cancel will remain on your system, and you will have to remove it manually.

If you choose to use the staticports.ini (or any custom port file), port numbers less than 1024 will not be validated by the installer. You will, however, be able to proceed with the installation.

See "Port Numbers" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for more information.

Note:

If you choose to use the staticports.ini (or any custom port file), the [OPMN],[OHS], and [Webcache] sections are required for Oracle Web Tier and cannot be removed.
