3 Creating the Oracle Data Integrator Master and Work Repository Schema

This chapter describes how to create the Master and Work Repository (ODI_REPO) database schemas using the Repository Creation Utility (RCU).

This step is required before any domain is configured for your Oracle Data Integrator agent.

The following topics are covered in this chapter:

3.1 Configuring a Certified Database

Before you begin, make sure you have installed and configured a certified database.

For more information, see "Installing a Database and Database Schemas" in Planning an Installation of Oracle Fusion Middleware.

3.2 Starting RCU

Navigate to the ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/bin directory and start RCU.

  1. Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to your JDK location.

    On UNIX operating systems:

    setenv JAVA_HOME /home/Oracle/Java/jdkversion
    

    On Windows operating systems, right-click on the desktop, then select My Computer, then select Properties. Click Advanced System Settings in the left column, then click Environment Variables in the System Properties window.

    In the Environment Variables window, set JAVA_HOME to your JDK location.

  2. Start RCU.

    On UNIX operating systems:

    ./rcu
    

    On Microsoft Windows operating systems:

    rcu.bat
    

3.3 Navigating the RCU Screens to Create the Schema

Follow the instructions on this section to complete schema creation for Oracle Data Integrator.

Refer to "Understanding Repository Creation Screens" in Creating Schemas with the Repository Creation Utility for more information about any of the screens mentioned in this section.

Task 1   Introducing RCU

Click Next.

Task 2   Selecting a Repository Creation Method

If you have the necessary permission and privileges to perform DBA activities on your database, select System Load and Product Load Concurrently. This procedure assumes that you have the necessary privileges.

If you do not have the necessary permission or privileges to perform DBA activities in the database, you must select Prepare Scripts for System Load on this screen. This option will generate a SQL script, which can be provided to your database administrator. See "Understanding System Load and Product Load" in Creating Schemas with the Repository Creation Utility.

Task 3   Providing Database Connection Details

Provide the database connection details for RCU to connect to your database.

Click Next to proceed, then click OK on the dialog window confirming that connection to the database was successful.

Task 4   Selecting Components

Select Create a new prefix, specify a custom prefix, then select the Oracle Data Integrator schema.

The custom prefix is used to logically group these schemas together for use in this domain only; you must create a unique set of schemas for each domain as schema sharing across domains is not supported.

Tip:

For more information about custom prefixes, see "Understanding Custom Prefixes" in Creating Schemas with the Repository Creation Utility.

For more information about how to organize your schemas in a multi-domain environment, see "Planning Your Schema Creation" in Creating Schemas with the Repository Creation Utility.

If you are running RCU from a Standalone installation, you will see the following:

If you are running RCU from an Enterprise installation, you will see the following:

Tip:

You must make a note of the custom prefix you choose to enter here; you will need this later on during the domain creation process.

Click Next to proceed, then click OK on the dialog window confirming that prerequisite checking for schema creation was successful.

Task 5   Specifying Schema Passwords

Specify how you want to set the schema passwords on your database, then specify and confirm your passwords.

Tip:

You must make a note of the passwords you set on this screen; you will need them later on during the domain creation process.

Task 6   Setting Custom Variables

Specify the custom variables for the Master and Work Repository.

Tip:

More information about the fields on this screen can be found in "Custom Variables" in Creating Schemas with the Repository Creation Utility.

Task 7   Completing Schema Creation

Navigate through the remainder of the RCU screens to complete schema creation. When you reach the Completion Summary screen, click Close to dismiss RCU.
