A Provisioning Framework Screens

This appendix presents screens used to install and deinstall the Oracle Fusion Applications Provisioning framework components.

It includes the following sections:

A.1 Installing Provisioning Framework Screens

To install the provisioning framework, complete the information on these screens:

A.1.1 Specify Inventory Directory (UNIX Only)

oraInventory fully described in surrounding text.

If this is your first Oracle installation on this host, you must specify the location of the Inventory Directory. It is used by the installer to keep track of all Oracle products installed on this host.

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 can install products on this host. Click OK to continue.

The Inventory Location Confirmation dialog prompts you to run the inventory_directory/ script as root to create the /etc/oraInst.loc file. This file is a pointer to the central inventory and must be present for silent installations. It contains two lines:



The standard location for this file is /etc/oraInst.loc, but it can be created anywhere. If you create it in a directory other than /etc, you must include the -invPtrLoc argument and enter the location of the inventory when you run the provisioningWizard or the runProvisioning script.

oraInventory popup fully described in surrounding text.

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

Click OK to continue.

A.1.2 Welcome

Welcome Screen: Described in surrounding text.

No action is required on this read-only screen.

Click Next to continue.

A.1.3 Prerequisite Checks

Fully described in surrounding text.

Analyzes the host computer to ensure that specific operating system prerequisites have been met. If any prerequisite check fails, the screen displays a short error message at the bottom. Fix the error and click Retry.

To ignore the error or warning message, click Continue. Click Abort to stop the prerequisite check process for all components.

Click Next to continue.

A.1.4 Specify Installation Location

Described in surrounding text.

Specify the Location where you want to install the provisioning framework. This is the location where the Provisioning Wizard and the start command for provisioning are installed. You can choose any location as long as it is on a shared disk that is accessible to all hosts in your new environment.

The installation process creates a logical directory called the Oracle home. This location is where software binaries will be stored. No runtime process can write to this directory. The directory must initially be empty.

If you are performing the installation on a Windows operating system, ensure that the directory paths are valid and do not contain a double backslash (\\).

Click Next to continue.

A.1.5 Installation Summary

Summary Screen: Described in surrounding text.

Summarizes the selections that you have made during this installation session. To change this configuration before installing, select a screen from the left navigation pane or click Back to return to a previous screen. When you are satisfied with the details, click Save to create a text file (response file) to use if you choose to perform the same installation later.

Click Install to begin installing this configuration.

A.1.6 Installation Progress

Progress Screen: Described in surrounding text.

The progress indicator shows the percent of the installation that is complete, and indicates the location of the installation log files. No user action is required.

When the progress indicator indicates 100 percent, click Next to continue.

A.1.7 Installation Complete

Complete Screen: Described in surrounding text.

Summarizes the installation that was just completed. To save the details to a text file, click Save and indicate a directory where you want to save the file.

Click Finish to dismiss the screen and exit the installer.

A.2 Deinstalling Provisioning Framework Screens

In order to deinstall the provisioning framework, complete the information on these screens:

A.2.1 Welcome

Deinstall Welcome. Fully described in surrounding text.

No action is required on the read-only screen.

A.2.2 Deinstall Oracle Home

Deinstall Home. Fully described in surrounding text.

Verify that the directory path is correct. Click Save to create a text file with the details of the configuration you are deinstalling.

Click Deinstall to continue. On the Warning screen, click Yes to remove the software files and the provisioning Oracle home directory. Click No to remove only the software files, or Cancel to return to the previous screen.

If you clicked No, remove the files manually. For example, if the provisioning framework directory is /d1/Oracle/Provisioning, you would use this syntax:


cd /d1/oracle/provisioning

rm -rf provisioning


If the Oracle home directory is C:\Oracle\Provisioning, use a file manager window and navigate to the C:\Oracle directory. Right-click the Provisioning folder and select Delete.
