Creating Stage Area for Oracle Apps R12.2

Creating Stage Area for Oracle Apps R12.2

In this post, our focus will be on the following:

  1. Verifying the version of the stage area and ensuring that all necessary zip files are downloaded and valid.
  2. If you haven’t downloaded the media yet, you can refer to the link below for instructions on How to download from Oracle E-Delivery

To begin, it is essential to confirm that all the required zip files have been successfully downloaded and stored in the designated location.  I have downloaded all the files to the “/home/apps/stage” directory. This verification process guarantees that the requisite files are readily available for the stage area build process.

Initially, We will unzip the Following files first:

[oracle@test1 stage]$ ls -ltrh V100052-01_*

-rwxr-xr-x. 1 oracle oinstall  98M Jan 12  2016 V100052-01_3of3.zip

-rwxr-xr-x. 1 oracle oinstall  82M Jan 12  2016 V100052-01_2of3.zip

-rwxr-xr-x. 1 oracle oinstall 726M Jan 20  2016 V100052-01_1of3.zip

Now Unzip the Files

[oracle@test1 stage]$ unzip V100052-01_1of3.zip

[oracle@test1 stage]$ unzip V100052-01_2of3.zip

[oracle@test1 stage]$ unzip V100052-01_3of3.zip


Now we will Check The StartCD Version provided with the Media from Oracle and Above Extracted Zip Files

[oracle@test1 stage]$ cd startCD/

[oracle@test1 startCD]$ cat README.txt | grep -i Version

Disk1/doc      : Contains Adobe Acrobat versions of E-Business Suite

Version       :

Now go to the Following Directory to build Stage

[oracle@test1 bin]$ cd /home/apps/stage/startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz/bin

[oracle@test1 bin]$ ls -ltr buildStage.sh

-rwxr-xr-x. 1 oracle oinstall 17325 Jan 20  2016 buildStage.sh


Run Buildstage Script

[oracle@test1 bin]$ ./buildStage.sh

Press Enter to continue

Enter 1 and Press Enter to Continue

Enter 2 and Press Enter To Continue

Enter the Location of the downloaded Zip Files and press enter

Note: As I missed 12c Media to download along with E-Business Suite Media, this is why it is giving a warning, we will download the Media and add it again in the stage. This issue will not occur with you.

This will start unzipping all the other files

Press Enter to Continue

Press Enter to Continue…

Press Enter to Continue…

Press Enter to Continue…

Press Enter to Continue…

Enter 2 and Press Enter To Continue
Press Enter to Continue…
Enter 4 and Press Enter To Exit the Build Stage

Stage File are now created and Media ready to Install Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2.0
