Oracle® Fusion Middleware

System Requirements and Specifications for Oracle Forms and Reports

11g Release 2 (11.1.2)

E25460-01

November 2014

This document contains system and platform-specific information for Oracle Fusion Middleware Forms and Reports 11g Release 2 (11.1.2) and later.

The following topics are covered in this document:

1 Using This Document with the Certification Matrix and Product Installation Guide

This document is intended for use in conjunction with the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle Forms and Reports and the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 2 Certifications.

Task 1   Find Out What is Certified

The following certification documents should be used to determine the proper combination of systems, database, clients, Identity and Access Management, and IP version that should be used for your product installation:

Oracle has tested and verified the performance of your product on all certified systems and environments; whenever new certifications occur, they are added to the proper certification document right away. New certifications can occur at any time, and for this reason the certification documents are kept outside of the documentation libraries and are available on Oracle Technology Network.

Task 2   Verify the Requirements of the Certification

The Oracle Fusion Middleware System Requirements and Specifications for Oracle Forms and Reports (this document) should be used to verify that the requirements of the certification are met. For example, if the certification document indicates that your product is certified for installation on 32-Bit Oracle Linux 5, this document should be used to verify that your Oracle Linux 5 system has met the required minimum specifications, like disk space, available memory, specific platform packages and patches, and other operating system-specific items. This document is updated as needed and therefore also resides outside of the documentation libraries and is available on Oracle Technology Network.

Task 3   Install Your Software

After you have verified that your environment meets the requirements specified in both the certification documents and system requirements, you are ready to begin your installation.

Your product installation guides contain the step-by-step instructions to get your product physically installed and configured on your system. These guides are available only from the documentation library (http://docs.oracle.com/) and therefore are not updated unless there is a subsequent product release. Both the certification and system requirement documents can be updated multiple times in between product releases, depending on whether or not new information is available.

2 Oracle Fusion Middleware Memory and Space Requirements

This section contains the minimum memory and disk space requirements for Oracle Fusion Middleware products. The following topics are covered:

2.1 General Memory Requirements

Unless otherwise noted, Table 1 lists the general minimum memory requirements for Oracle Fusion Middleware products. For the purposes of this document, "minimum available memory" is defined as the amount of physical memory (RAM) and swap memory combined.

The memory and disk space requirements for Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) can be found in Oracle Fusion Middleware System Requirements and Specifications for 11g Release 1 (11.1.1). This document can be found on the following page:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/ias/downloads/fusion-requirements-100147.html

3 Oracle Weblogic Server and JDK Considerations

Oracle Forms and Reports 11g Release 2 (11.1.2) is released and tested with Oracle WebLogic Server 11gR1 (10.3.5) and 11gR1 (10.3.6). Oracle WebLogic Server can be obtained from the following URL:

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/weblogic/downloads/

Oracle WebLogic Server is a prerequisite for installing Oracle Forms and Reports; doing so creates the Middleware home directory where all 11g Release 2 (11.1.2) products must be installed. For instructions, refer to the Oracle WebLogic Server Installation Guide in the 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) documentation library.

Installing Oracle WebLogic Server also installs a JDK on your system. If you are using a 64-bit JVM in your environment, ensure that all your Oracle Fusion Middleware components are using the 64-bit JVM. Also make sure that Oracle WebLogic Server is installed with the 64-bit JDK. You cannot mix components using a 32-bit JVM with those using a 64-bit JVM.

Refer to the certification documents for information on the platforms that support a 64-bit JDK. Links to the certification documents can be found in Section 1, "Using This Document with the Certification Matrix and Product Installation Guide".

4 Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) Requirements

This section contains prerequisite information for the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI). The requirements in this section must be met in order for the installer to start:

4.1 Environment Variables

The environment variables on your system must be set as described in Table 4:

Table 4 Oracle Universal Installer Environment Variable Requirements

Variable Description

ORACLE_HOME

Applies to: all configuration tools for all products on all platforms.

This variable is automatically set by the configuration tool to the Oracle home from where the configuration tool is started. This is true even if the ORACLE_HOME variable is already set.

ORACLE_SID

Applies to: all installers for all products on all platforms.

For the Oracle Forms and Reports installer, this variable must not be set.

For all other installers, there are no restrictions as to whether this variable is set or not set.

PATH

Applies to: all installers for products with system components only on all platforms.

If you are installing on a Windows operating system, see "Resolving PATH and Directory Issues on Windows" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Release Notes for Microsoft Windows (32-Bit) or Oracle Fusion Middleware Release Notes for Microsoft Windows x64 for important additional information.

This variable is automatically set by the installer and prepended with ORACLE_HOME\bin. In addition, you must have the appropriate version of the JDK installed on your system, and include the bin directory of the JDK at the beginning of the PATH variable definition. Make sure this variable does not contain a reference to any other Oracle home directory.

NOTE: If your Oracle Fusion Middleware components are running in a 64-bit JVM environment, you must have the appropriate version of the JDK installed on your system, and include the bin directory of the JDK at the beginning of the PATH variable definition.

SHLIB_PATH

Applies to: all installers for products with system components only on HP-UX and HP-IA operating systems.

This variable is automatically set by the installer and prepended with ORACLE_HOME/lib.

LIBPATH

Applies to: all installers for products with system components only on AIX operating systems.

This variable is automatically set by the installer and prepended with ORACLE_HOME/lib.

LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Applies to: all installers for products with system components only on Linux and Solaris operating systems.

This variable is automatically set by the installer and prepended with ORACLE_HOME/lib.

NOTE: make sure this variable does not contain a reference to any other Oracle home directory.

DISPLAY

Applies to: all installers for all products on all platforms.

If you are installing with a graphical user interface (GUI), this variable must be set to the monitor where you want the installer GUI to appear.

Refer to your operating system documentation for specific instructions on how to do this, as procedures vary depending on your exact operating system.

TMP

TMPDIR

Applies to: all installers for all products on all platforms.

Optional variable. If not set, then the default value is /tmp.

TNS_ADMIN

ORA_NLS

LD_BIND_NOW

Applies to: all installers for all products on all platforms.

For the Oracle Forms and Reports installer, these variables must not be set.

For all other installers, there are no restrictions as to whether these variables are set or not set.


4.2 Startup Requirements

The items in Table 5 are checked as the installer is being started:

Table 5 Oracle Universal Installer Startup Requirements

Category Accepted or Minimum Values

Platforms

For a complete list of supported platforms, refer to the System Requirements and Supported Platforms for Oracle Forms and Reports 11g Release 2 (11.1.2.x) Certification Matrix on the Oracle Fusion Middleware Supported System Configurations page, as described in Section 1, "Using This Document with the Certification Matrix and Product Installation Guide".

CPU Speed

At least 300MHz

Temp Space

At least 270MB

Swap Space

At least 500MB

Monitor

At least 256 colors


4.3 Special Startup Requirements for Linux x86 or Linux x86-64 Operating Systems

If you are running Oracle Universal Installer on Linux x86 or Linux x86-64 operating systems, you must modify the value of the SHMMAX kernel parameter to avoid seeing errors generated by the Oracle Universal Installer. To do so:

  1. Change the value of SHMMAX to 4294967295 by including the following line in /etc/sysctl.conf:

    kernel.shmmax = 4294967295
    
  2. Activate the new SHMMAX setting by running the command:

    /sbin/sysctl -p
    
  3. Start the Oracle Universal Installer and install your software.

5 Oracle Fusion Middleware Network Requirements

Typically, the computer on which you want to install Oracle Fusion Middleware is connected to the network. The computer has local storage to store the Oracle Fusion Middleware installation and also contains a display monitor and DVD drive.

If your environment is not a typical scenario, you should read the "Oracle Fusion Middleware Network Requirements" section in the 11g Release 1 (11.1.1) System Requirements and Specification document:

http://docs.oracle.com/html/E18558_01/fusion_requirements.htm

6 System Requirements for UNIX Operating Systems

This section contains system requirement information for UNIX operating systems.

In some cases, a particular platform may be de-supported for use with Oracle Fusion Middleware products. While this particular platform's requirements may remain in this document for legacy purposes, it would no longer be listed in the certification document and would no longer be considered a "certified" platform.

Links to the certification document can be found in Section 1, "Using This Document with the Certification Matrix and Product Installation Guide".

All packages listed are minimum versions.

The following topics are covered in this section:

6.1 General UNIX Operating System Requirements

This section contains the following topics:

6.1.1 Checking the Open File Limit

On all UNIX and Linux operating systems, verify the values that are currently set for Open File Limit. The minimum Open File Limit should be at 4096, but you should also consider the number of processes required for each host.

The following examples are for Linux operating systems. Equivalent commands should be followed for other UNIX operating systems.

To verify how many files are open, use the following command:

/usr/sbin/lsof | wc -l

To check your open file limits, use the following comands:

  • For C-shell:

    limit descriptors
    
  • For Bash:

    ulimit -n
    

To change the open file limits:

  1. Log in as the root user.

  2. Locate and open the following operating system configuration file:

    /etc/security/limits.conf
    
  3. Look for or modify the following lines in the limits.conf file:

    * soft  nofile  4096
    * hard  nofile  65536
    * soft  nproc   2047
    * hard  nproc   16384
    
  4. Save your changes and close the limits.conf file.

  5. If you are running Oracle Enterprise Linux 6 or Red Hat Linux 6, locate the following operating system configuration file:

    /etc/security/limits.d/90-nproc.conf
    
  6. Make sure the same values are added to the 90-nproc.conf file; otherwise, the values in the 90-nproc.conf file can override the values in the limits.conf file.

  7. Reboot the machine.

6.1.2 Installing as a Non-Default User on UNIX Operating Systems

On UNIX operating systems, the installation of Fusion Middleware products is owned and controlled as a known user (for example, "oracle"). The file permissions associated with this installation are configured to ensure the highest level of security possible, which by default are 700 (meaning all files are owned and accessible by the owner only).

Changing the default permissions settings will reduce the security of the installation and possibly your system. Therefore, making such a change is not recommended. If access to particular files or executables is required by other users, the UNIX sudo command (or other similar command) should be considered in lieu of changing file permissions.

Refer to your UNIX operating system Administrator's Guide or contact your operating system vendor if you need further assistance.

6.2 Supported Linux Operating System Versions, Packages, and Patches

Table 6 lists the platform, operating system, package, and patch information for Linux operating systems that are either currently supported or were supported in a previous release.

In addition, you should also review the following Linux-specific issues to see if they are applicable to your environment:

6.2.2 Obtaining the openmotif22 Package on SUSE 10 and SUSE 11 Operating Systems

The openmotif22 package is not included by default on SUSE 10 and SUSE 11 operating systems. If you need to obtain this package, you must go to the Novell website to obtain the package and then perform the installation using the instructions provided by Novell.

6.2.3 Installing Oracle HTTP Server on Linux Operating Systems Requires NPTL

If you are installing Oracle HTTP Server on a Linux operating system, the operating system needs to set Native POSIX Threads Library (NPTL) as the default threads-implementation. To check for this, run the following command:

getconf GNU_LIBPTHREAD_VERSION

The expected results should be "NPTL 2.3.4". Failing to have NPTL can result in unexpected behavior for the Oracle HTTP Server, especially if the Multi-Processing Module (MPM) is the Worker MPM.

6.3 Supported Solaris Operating System Versions, Packages, and Patches

Table 7 lists the platform, operating system, package, and patch information for Solaris operating systems that are either currently supported or were supported in a previous release.

system/font/xorg/iso8859-7
system/font/xorg/iso8859-8
system/font/xorg/iso8859-9

After these packages are installed, you must also set the following environment variables:

  • On Solaris x86-64 operating systems, set the NLS_LANG environment variable to AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P15, or set the DISPLAY variable to any 64-Bit Linux machine.

  • On Solaris SPARC64 operating systems:

    1. Set LC_ALL=C.

    2. Set the NLS_LANG environment variable to AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P15, or set the DISPLAY variable to any 64-Bit Linux machine.

6.3.2 Installing Oracle Identity Management on Solaris x86-64 Platforms

If you are installing Oracle Identity Management on a Solaris x86-64 platform, you must patch all software versions to the most recent version before you configure a domain. Below is a recommended installation procedure; refer to the product documentation (Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle Identity Management) for more details.

  1. Install the most recent version of Oracle WebLogic Server.

  2. If necessary, run Repository Creation Utility (RCU) to create the database schemas.

  3. Perform a software-only installation (do not configure a domain) of the Release 11.1.1.2.0 software.

  4. Patch the software to the latest version with the Patch Set Installer.

  5. Run the configuration tool to configure a domain.

6.3.3 Applying Solaris Patches in Non-Global Zones

On Solaris operating systems, the prerequisite patches that are applied in the global zone can be considered applied in the non-global zones. There is only one kernel running on the system, and all zones must be at the same patch level with respect to the kernel and other Solaris system components. Kernel patches can only be applied from the global zone, and they affect the global and all non-global zones equally.

To check if a kernel patch is applied in the global zone, use the following command:

showrev -p | grep patch_number

For example, to check if patch 137111-04 is applied:

showrev -p | grep 137111

Note:

The B3394BA package is obsoleted in HP-UX Itanium 11i v3 machines. This is causing an error message to be seen during prerequisite checking.

This error message can be safely ignored provided that the open Motif package can be confirmed as installed on the machine using the following command:

/usr/sbin/swlist -l fileset | grep -i motif

7 System Requirements for Windows Operating Systems

This section contains the following:

7.1 Certified Windows Operating Systems

Refer to the certification documents for the latest information on certified Windows operating systems. See Section 1, "Using This Document with the Certification Matrix and Product Installation Guide" for a link to these documents.

7.2 Disabling Anti-Virus Software

If you encounter issues related to anti-virus software during your Fusion Middleware product installation, disable your anti-virus software for the entire duration of the installation. If the system is restarted before the installation is complete, ensure the anti-virus software was not restarted before continuing with the installation.

Anti-virus software can be re-enabled when the installation is complete.

7.3 Enabling User Account Control (UAC)

On Microsoft Windows operating systems, you must enable User Account Control (UAC) so that the correct permissions are applied to the cwallet.sso file.

To enable UAC:

  1. Run secpol.msc from the command prompt.

  2. Select Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options.

  3. Set the User Account Control:Run all Administrator in Admin Approval Mode option to enabled.

  4. Restart the host.

  5. Restart the servers.

7.4 Understanding Required Installation Privileges

In order to install Oracle Forms and Reports or use the Oracle Forms and Reports Builders after installation, the operating system user must have Windows "Administrator" privileges.

Although the current user may have Windows "Administrator" privileges, if they are not the installation owner, the Windows UAC settings may need to be relaxed.
