1 Install and Configure

This chapter describes issues pertaining to Oracle Fusion Middleware product installation and configuration.

The following topics are covered in this chapter:

1.1 Issues Pertaining to Product Installation

This section contains the following topics:

1.1.1 Applying a Mandatory Patch for Oracle Business Activity Monitoring

Before installing Oracle Business Activity Monitoring (Oracle BAM) 12c, be sure to review the My Oracle Support Document ID 1682371.1, which is available from My Oracle Support.

This Support Note provides important information about a mandatory patch that must be applied to Oracle BAM 12c immediately after installation.

1.1.2 Checking for Available Software Patches

Before installing any Oracle Fusion Middleware product, it is good practice to review the product information available on My Oracle Support:


When you register for My Oracle Support, you have easy access to important information about available patches and other important Oracle Fusion Middleware product information.

1.2 Issues Pertaining to Product Configuration

This section contains the following topics:

1.2.1 Node Manager with Type Set to Plain Cannot be Modified Using Fusion Middleware Control in Non-English Environments

If you are using Fusion Middleware Control in a non-English environment, you might experience problems when you attempt to edit the Node Manager settings for an existing machine with Type set to Plain.

For example, if you navigate to the Configuration > Node Manager page to edit the Node Manager for an existing machine, the Type field appears blank. If you manually set the Type field to Plain, then an error message appears when trying to save your settings.

If you encounter this issue, perform one of the following workarounds:

1.2.2 Applications will not Start After WebLogic Server is Upgraded

After applying the latest patches to Oracle WebLogic Server, the ORACLE_HOME/wlserver/server/lib/weblogic.policy file must be edited to include the following entry in order for Middleware services such as Discoverer, Access Manager, and Identity Manager to start:

grant codeBase "file:ORACLE_HOME/WLS/patch_jars/-" {
      permission java.lang.RuntimePermission "oracle.*","read";

Replace ORACLE_HOME with the location of your Oracle home directory.

Replace WLS with one of the following:

  • patch_wls1035 for WebLogic Server version 10.3.5

  • patch_wls1036 for WebLogic Server version 10.3.6

  • patch_wls1212 for Weblogic Server version 12.1.2

1.3 Issues Pertaining to Product Installation and Configuration Documentation

This section contains the following topics:

1.3.1 Registering Node Manager as a Windows Service

To register Node Manager as a Windows Service serving either one of the following:

  • a standalone OHS domain

  • a domain with a collocated ODI agent

Do the following after you have created the domain:

  1. Set the JAVA_OPTIONS environment variable so that it points to the proper Oracle home and Domain home directories.

    set JAVA_OPTIONS=-Dohs.product.home=ORACLE_HOME -Dweblogic.RootDirectory=DOMAIN_HOME

    For example:

    set JAVA_OPTIONS=-Dohs.product.home=C:\Oracle\product\OHS\OracleHome -Dweblogic.RootDirectory=C:\Oracle\config\domains\OHSDomain
  2. Go to the Domain home directory and run the following command:


1.3.2 Incorrect Step Displayed on the Installation Complete Screen

On completing a standalone OHS installation, the step 'Start Node Manager and Domain Servers' is displayed as one of the next steps you should take after installation.

This information is incorrect, as there are no domain servers configured during the standalone installation.

1.3.3 Error Message Displayed When Incorrect Version of JDK Used for Installation

When you attempt to install a Fusion Middleware product on a 64-bit system, using a JDK for a 32-bit system, an error message is displayed before the installation begins.

Refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware System Requirements and Specifications document for your product, and download a suitable JDK from the following location, before installing the Fusion Middleware software:


1.3.4 Incorrect Error Message Displayed if JDK not Compatible with Operating System

If you run the installer jar file from a 32-bit JDK7 JVM on a 64-bit machine, the installer displays an incorrect message that the version of the JVM is correct and the version of the operating system on which the software is installed is incorrect.

Refer to the System Requirements and Specifications document for your product, and download a suitable JDK from the following location, before installing the Fusion Middleware software:


1.3.5 Warning Messages in make.log File

While installing Oracle Web Tier 12c on AIX operating systems, warning messages may appear in the ORACLE_HOME/install/make.log file.

These messages can be safely ignored.

1.3.6 Simple Security Mode Does Not Function with OAM Server

On the AIX Platform, Simple Security Mode is not functioning with OAM Server.

While registering new Webgate Agent for artifacts generation, select Open or Cert Security Mode in OAM Server Console.

1.3.7 Domain Creation Fails if Correct Server Groups are not Selected While Configuring OSB and SOA

If you configure an OSB and SOA cluster without selecting the correct server groups, then the domain creation fails with the following notice:

Extracting Domain Contents... 
Creating Domain Security Information... 
Starting OPSS Security Configuration Data Processing... 
The OPSS Security Configuration Data Processing Completed... 
Domain Creation Failed!

To avoid this error, select OSB-MGD-SVRS-COMBINED and SOA-MGD-SVRS server groups for all managed servers on the Managed Servers screen.

1.3.8 Incorrect config.xml File Generated While Extending a SOA Cluster with OSB

While extending your SOA cluster domain with OSB, if you delete the existing Managed Server and create a new Managed Server, an incorrect config.xml file is generated. For example, if you delete the existing soa_server1 and replaced it with osb_server1 you will get an incorrect config.xml file. Specifically, the following SAF tags are missing from config.xml:

    <target>osb_server1 (migratable)</target> 
    <target>ms2 (migratable)</target> 

To avoid this issue, while extending, create new Managed Servers for OSB.

1.3.9 install<time-stamp>.out File not Created in the MFT Installation Log Directory

In Managed File Transfer, install<timestamp>.out file is not created in the log inventory.

This is not an error.

1.3.10 Error Message Displayed in oblog.log File After Configuring OHS WebGate

After configuring OHS WebGate and restarting the servers, the following error message is displayed in oblog.log file in the Domain_Home/server/ohs1/logs/oblog.log directory:

2014/06/10@05:56:29.81679       14314   27      INIT    ERROR   
 0x000003B6      ../oblistrwutil.cpp:225 "Could not read file"   
     2014/06/10@05:56:43.14915       14313   9       INIT    ERROR   
 0x000003B6      ../oblistrwutil.cpp:225 "Could not read file"   

To work around, do the following:

  1. Run:

    cp Oracle_Home/webgate/ohs/config/oblog_config_wg.xml $Oracle_Home/webgate/ohs/config/oblog_config.xml

  2. Restart all the servers.

1.3.11 Configuring Oracle WebLogic Server to Access Oracle Internet Directory over SSL

If you want to configure Oracle WebLogic Server to access Oracle Internet Directory (OID) over SSL, then you need to obtain and add an OID server certificate to the WebLogic domain. The OID certificate is necessary for a successful SSL handshake and for successfully setting up a connection from Oracle WebLogic Server to Oracle Internet Directory.

For information on obtaining the required certificate and adding it to the WebLogic Server store, see "Enabling SSL Communication Between the Middle Tier and the Hardware Load Balancer" in Enterprise Deployment Guide for Oracle SOA Suite.
