Oracle Fusion Applications – Staging Setup

Mar 12, 2021 | Oracle

Fusion Applications Install Files Staging

Master Oracle Install File Staging

Central to any Oracle Install involves a trip over to Oracle eDelivery to sort our the file set for the install at hand.

In this case the focus is not downloading the Fusion Applications Install files and getting them staged on an AWS EC2 OL6 instance to use in an eventual install.

Some Assumptions

  • Are familiar with how to create and run a Linux instance on Amazon AWS
  • Are comfortable on Bash command line in Linux
  • Have an Oracle account
  • Understand that while Spot Instances on AWS are cheap they are not free
  • Carefully follow instructions

Volume Sizing

The size volume you chose should be:

  • At least 150GB for a single volume
  • Or you could do a two volume array to save on volume costs on AWS
    • One 80GB volume for the downloand (to be deleted after unzip)
    • One 80GB volume for the unzipped target (to be deleted after FA install)

Note the image below that shows xvdf1 as 62GB for the download and 70GB for the unzipped result

Head over to Amazon AWS on your Linux instance and create and attach the volumes

Prepare Volumes on Linux

Create mount points

sudo mkdir /d01
sudo mkdir /mnt/dl
sudo mkdir /mnt/stage

Prepare the Download volume

sudo fdisk /dev/nvme1n1
# Type n then p then 1 and then ⏎ twice then w in fdisk
sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/nvme1n1p1
sudo /dev/nvme1n1p1 /mnt/stage
#check to see it mounted
df -lh

Prepare the Stage volume

sudo fdisk /dev/nvme2n1
# Type n then p then 1 and then ⏎ twice then w in fdisk
sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/nvme2n1p1
sudo /dev/nvme2n1p1 /mnt/stage
#check to see it mounted
df -lh
#add the following line to fstab
sudo nano /etc/fstab
/dev/nvme2n1p1 /mnt/stage ext4 defaults 1 1

Download FA Install Files

Get a “wget.sh” file

Using Windows Remote Desktop  login to the instance

Load up Firefox and head to edelivery.oracle.com and login

In the search area enter “Fusion Applications” and select it below

Click through the prompts to check out.

At the download page click on wget.sh options and download the file

Run the download

Open a cmd prompt and navigate to the Downloads directory

Move or copy the wget.sh file to /mnt/dl and set it executable

sudo cp wget.sh /mnt/dl
sudo chmod +x wget.sh

Run the program (have your Oracle Credentials ready)

sudo ./wget.sh

Decompress Zips

Once all 17 zip files have downloaded it’s time to unzip

cd /mnt/dl
unzip -o "*.zip" -d /mnt/stage

Once all the zips process you will have a fully functional Oracle Fusion Applications staging area ready to run a Fusion Insall

To Wrap Things Up

Yes a bunch of busy work doing volumes and grabbing a wget.sh batch file but not too bad in the end I suspect.

Once this is built you have it for as long as you need it.

NEXT STEPS?

Create an Oracle OL6 Linux OS Volume to use for whatever Oracle installs you may have in mind.  Check out the article at the link in this section to read more!
