Description:

This is a sample installation of Oracle 11.1.0.7 (32-bit) on Windows 2008 r2 (64-bit) geared towards providing a base for the CA Oblicore Database install. Note that while Oblicore supports 64-bit windows 2008, the Oracle installation must be 32-bit. In fact, installing 64-bit Oracle components may cause the Oblicore installation to fail and is not supported.

This document is geared towards Oblicore 7.0 sp1 which is the current release as of the publication of this guide.

Please note that this guide is intended as an example. Oracle is not CA software and if you encounter general problems installing the Oracle database software you may need to contact Oracle for further assistance.

Solution:

Oracle 11.1.0.7 (32-bit) installation on Windows 2008 r2 (64-bit)

Version: 1

Objective: This is a sample installation of Oracle 11.1.0.7 (32-bit) on Windows 2008 r2 (64-bit) geared towards providing a base for the CA Oblicore Database install. Note that while Oblicore supports 64-bit windows 2008, the Oracle installation must be 32-bit. In fact, installing 64-bit Oracle components may cause the Oblicore installation to fail and is not supported.

This document is geared towards Oblicore 7.0 sp1 which is the current release as of the publication of this guide.

Please note that this guide is intended as an example. Oracle is not CA software and if you encounter general problems installing the Oracle database software you may need to contact Oracle for further assistance.

Installing:

For the purpose of this guide, the anti-virus, Windows Firewall, and Windows UAC were disabled to prevent interruptions. If you have these running you may get additional prompts from Windows. To start the install run the setup under the database directory of your 11.1.0.7 image.

Select the advanced option in order to install the database and client.

Here we're installing Enterprise Edition:

Below we're changing the Oracle base from the default of c:\app\administrator. You can change it to anything you want.

IMPORTANT: Please note that if you do not choose the advanced install and instead install the database and client separately, the default paths will be different for each. If you install the client second, then the system PATH variable will have the client's install path at the beginning. This causes TNS Protocol Adapter Errors. You must edit the system PATH variable and make sure the database installation path comes first. If you follow this guide exactly then you will not encounter this problem.

Next, Oracle runs the pre-requisite checks. There are 2 checks that will fail, one, because 11.1.0.7 is not "officially" supported on Windows 2008. This can either be ignored or you can install Oracle 11.2 and use 11.1.0.7 compatibility mode for the Oblicore database. This scenario is not supported by CA but is supported by Oracle. It will require you manually install the Oblicore database and so for this example we're just using 11.1.0.7.

The second failure is because we're installing on a workstation box and we plan to be installing everything locally. In this situation Oracle recommends that we setup a loopback address to communicate locally. This is optional but if you choose this, we do that below:

We're configuring the adapter below. In this case I'm using 10.10.10.10 for the loopback address. This can be anything you're not using to communicate on the network.

Next we configure the hosts file so that communicating to the local box comes through the loopback:

The remaining Oracle warning concerning the version of windows needs to be manually confirmed to continue:

IMPORTANT: We're installing the software only. For Oblicore we do NOT want to install a database. This will cause the Oblicore installation to fail if you select database during it's install.

If everything succeeded we should eventually get the below complete screen and we can exit:
