This package is required for Oracle Discoverer to work properly, but is not available for SUSE 10. To work around this issue, you must install compat-libstdc++-296-2.96-132.7.2 or higher from any Red Hat Linux or Oracle Enterprise Linux distribution. To obtain openmotif packages for SUSE11, go to the public download location http://ftp.novell.com/partners/oracle/sles-11/openmotif_FUSION_SLES11.tgz. This is a single zip file from Novell and includes a README file with details about package names, versions, and source. "C 5.5: Patch for S1S8CC C compiler" patch required only if the installed version of Studio 11 does not already include this patch (or a superseded version). Symlink patch required only if the method of installing Solaris 9 Update 9 was via a Solaris Patch Cluster and that version of the Solaris Patch Cluster did not already include this patch (or a superseded version). For additional details about patches 127112 and 137112, see notes 1000642.1 and 1019395.1 on My Oracle Support.

4.2 Open File Limit
In addition to the requirements detailed in Table 6, the Open File Limit should also be checked. The minimum Open File Limit should be 4096. The following examples are for Linux systems. Equivalent commands should be followed for other operating systems. You can see how many files are open with the following command:
/usr/sbin/lsof | wc -l

To check your open file limits, use the commands below. For C-shell:
limit descriptors

For Bash:
ulimit -n

To change the open file limits, login as root and edit the /etc/security/limits.conf file. Look for the following two lines:
* soft * hard nofile nofile 2048 2048

Change the values from 2048 to 4096, then reboot the machine.

4.3 Installing Oracle Web Tier and Oracle Identity Management on Solaris x86-64 Platforms
If you are installing Oracle Web Tier or Oracle Identity Management on a Solaris x86-64 platform, you must patch all software versions to the most recent version before you configure a domain. Below is a recommended installation procedure; refer to the product documentation (Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Web Tier or Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle Identity Management) for more details.
1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Install the most recent version of Oracle WebLogic Server. If necessary, run Repository Creation Utility (RCU) to create the database schemas. Perform a software-only installation (do not configure a domain) of the Release 11.1.1.2.0 software. Patch the software to the latest version with the Patch Set Installer. Run the configuration tool to configure a domain.

4.4 Installing Oracle HTTP Server on Linux Operating Systems Requires NPTL
If you are installing Oracle HTTP Server (available with Oracle Web Tier or Oracle Portal, Forms, Reports and Discoverer) on a Linux operating system, the operating system needs to set Native POSIX Threads Library (NPTL) as the default threads-implementation. To check for this, run the following command:
getconf GNU_LIBPTHREAD_VERSION

The expected results should be "NPTL 2.3.4". Failing to have NPTL can result in unexpected behavior for the Oracle HTTP Server, especially if the Multi-Processing Module (MPM) is the Worker MPM.

4.5 Applying Solaris Patches in Non-Global Zones
On Solaris operating systems, the prerequisite patches that are applied in the global zone can be considered applied in the non-global zones. There is only one kernel running on the system, and all zones must be at the same patch level with respect to the kernel and other Solaris system components. Kernel patches can only be applied from the global zone, and they affect the global and all non-global zones equally. To check if a kernel patch is applied in the global zone, use the following command:
showrev -p | grep patch_number

For example, to check if patch 137111-04 is applied:
showrev -p | grep 137111

7.1 Using RCU 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) with Oracle Database 11g (11.2.0.1)
If you are using the version of RCU that is available in Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) with Oracle Database 11g (11.2.0.1), you will receive the following warning message:
The database you are connecting is not a supported version. Enter Database with version equal to or higher than 10.2.0.4.0 in 10g or version equal to higher than 11.1.0.7.0 in 11g. Refer to the certification matrix for supported DB versions.

This warning can be safely ignored and you can proceed with your RCU operations. This warning will not appear in the version of RCU available in Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0).

7.2 Using Oracle Database 11g (11.1.0.7) with Oracle Identity Manager
If you are using Oracle Database 11g (11.1.0.7) with Oracle Identity Management 11g, there are certain database patches that must be applied. See "Patch Requirements for Oracle Database 11g (11.1.0.7)" in the "Oracle Identity Manager" chapter of the Oracle Fusion Middleware Release Notes for Linux x86 or Oracle Fusion Middleware Release Notes for Microsoft Windows. Patches for all operating systems (Linux, 32-bit Windows and 64-bit Windows) are identified.

7.3 Using Oracle Database 11g (11.2.0.1) with OID and Oracle Data Vault
If you are using Oracle Database 11g (11.2.0.1) and you choose to configure Oracle Internet Directory (OID) with Oracle Data Vault:
1. 2.

Apply patch 8897382 (see the README file in the patch for instructions). In the ORACLE_HOME/ldap/datasecurity/dbv_oid_command_rules.sql (on UNIX operating systems) or ORACLE_HOME\ldap\datasecurity\dbv_ oid_command_rules.sql (on Windows operating systems) file, find the following code:
/declare . begin . dvsys.dbms_macadm.CREATE_COMMAND_RULE( command => 'CONNECT' ,rule_set_name => 'OID App Access' ,object_owner => 'ODS' ,object_name => '%' ,enabled => 'Y'); . commit; . end;/

Change the following line:
,object_owner => 'ODS'

to:

20

,object_owner => '%'

7.4 Using Oracle Express Edition (XE) Database for Oracle SOA Suite
Oracle Database is the recommended database for SOA Suite deployments. Note that Oracle Express Edition (XE) version 10.2.0.1 does not meet the minimum version requirement for supported use, but will generally work in a personal development environment. If you want to use XE you can set the RCU_JDBC_TRIM_BLOCKS environment variable to TRUE *prior* to running RCU. As a reminder as to support level, when running RCU against XE you will receive a warning stating that the database version is not supported by Oracle.

Section 8.1, "RCU Supported Platforms" Section 8.2, "RCU Requirements for Oracle Databases" Section 8.3, "RCU Requirements for Microsoft SQL Server Databases" Section 8.4, "RCU Requirements for IBM DB2 Databases"

8.1 RCU Supported Platforms
RCU is available only on 32-bit x86 Linux and 32-bit Microsoft Windows operating system platforms. You can run RCU from these machines to connect to any certified versions of Oracle, IBM DB2, or Microsoft SQL Server database in order to create the schemas required by Fusion Middleware components. The database server can be running on any platform that is supported by its respective database. For Release 11.1.1.4.0, RCU can also be run on 64-bit x86 Linux and 64-bit Microsoft Windows operating systems. On 64-bit Linux operating systems, you must run the following command before starting RCU:
set linux32 bash

8.2 RCU Requirements for Oracle Databases
This section contains information pertaining to running RCU and creating schemas on Oracle databases. The following topics are covered:
■ ■

Section 8.2.1, "General Oracle Database Requirements" Section 8.2.2, "Setting the nls_length_semantics Parameter in your Oracle Database" Section 8.2.3, "Applying Oracle Database Patch 8625762 for Oracle Business Process Management Suite" Section 8.2.4, "Installing Oracle Text for Oracle Portal" Section 8.2.5, "Component-Specific Requirements for Oracle Databases"



■ ■

8.2.1 General Oracle Database Requirements
RCU checks for the following on Oracle databases:

21



Database version is equal to or higher than 10.2.0.4.0 in 10g or equal to or higher than 11.1.0.7.0 in 11g. Database user has SYSDBA role. If you are creating schemas on an Oracle database, you must have SYSDBA privileges. For example, you can use the default database user SYS with SYSDBA privileges, or you must use a database user that has been granted the role of SYSDBA. If you using a user other than SYS with SYSDBA privileges, you must grant the user permissions as follows:
GRANT execute on sys.dbms_lock to user_name with grant option



For example, if you have created and are using the user named system, you would use the following command to grant the necessary privileges to system:
GRANT execute on sys.dbms_lock to system with grant option

Refer to your Oracle database documentation for more information about database users and roles.


Character set is AL32UTF8. If your database does not use the AL32UTF8 character set, you will see the following warning when running RCU:
The database you are connecting is with non-AL32UTF8 character set. Oracle strongly recommends using AL32UTF8 as the database character set.

You can ignore this warning and continue using RCU.
Note:

If you are installing Oracle WebCenter or Oracle Identity Management, you must configure your database to use AL32UTF8 character set encoding. If your database is not already configured to do so, refer to your database documentation for instructions. If you are installing a new database, be sure to configure your database to use AL32UTF8 character set encoding.

■ ■ ■

The SHARED_POOL_SIZE is greater than or equal to 147456KB. The SGA_MAX_SIZE is greater than or equal to 147456KB. The DB_BLOCK_SIZE is greater than or equal to 8KB

8.2.2 Setting the nls_length_semantics Parameter in your Oracle Database
Oracle Fusion Middleware only supports schemas in a byte-mode database. The nls_ length_semantics initialization parameter on the database where the schemas reside must be set to BYTE; setting this parameter to CHAR is not supported.

8.2.3 Applying Oracle Database Patch 8625762 for Oracle Business Process Management Suite
If you are installing Oracle Business Process Management Suite (part of Oracle SOA Suite) and you are using an Oracle database, you must apply patch 8625762 to avoid error ORA-03137 and OutOfMemory exception.

22

You can obtain the patch by specifying the patch ID in My Oracle Support (formerly MetaLink):

8.3.1 General Microsoft SQL Server Database Requirements
RCU checks for the following on Microsoft SQL Server databases:
■ ■

Database version is equal to or higher than 2005. Database user (db_owner) should have SYSDBA or DBA privileges.

8.3.2 Creating Oracle WebCenter Schemas on Microsoft SQL Server Databases
If you are creating the schemas in a Microsoft SQL Server database, a database instance must be created prior to running RCU. The MDS schema has some specific requirements; see "Databases Supported by MDS" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for more information. In addition, the MDS schema requires a database with case sensitive collation, while Oracle Content Server 10g requires a database instance with case insensitive collation. If you wish to install Oracle Content Server 10g on a SQL Server database, you will need to create two database instances (one with case sensitive collation and one with case insensitive collation) and run RCU twice: once to install the Oracle Content Server

25

10g schemas into the database instance with case insensitive collation, and a second time to install all of the other WebCenter schemas into the database instance with case sensitive collation.

8.3.3 Component-Specific Requirements for Microsoft SQL Server Databases
Table 9 lists all of the supported schemas for Microsoft SQL Server databases, along with any component-specific prerequisite information that must be met for RCU to be able to create schema. When the tablespaces are created, RCU will automatically create them with the necessary tablespace sizes.

8.4 RCU Requirements for IBM DB2 Databases
This section contains information you need to know about configuring IBM DB2 databases for schema creation. The following topics are covered:
■ ■ ■ ■

Section 8.4.1, "Creating Database Operating System Users" Section 8.4.2, "Size Limit for Schema Prefixes (Linux Only)" Section 8.4.3, "Configuring Your DB2 Database" Section 8.4.4, "RCU Supported Schemas for IBM DB2 Databases"

8.4.1 Creating Database Operating System Users
IBM DB2 authenticates its database users using equivalent operating system users. Therefore, prior to running RCU, one operating system user must be created for each schema. The operating system user name must match the schema owner name and must contain only lowercase letters; no all-uppercase or mixed-case names are allowed. For example:


If you create a schema named DEV_SOA on an IBM DB2 database running on a Linux operating system, then you must also create the operating system user dev_ soa (matching name, all lowercase letters). If you create a schema named DEV_SOAINFRA on an IBM DB2 database running on a Windows operating system, then you must also create the operating system user dev_soainfra (matching name, all lowercase letters).



8.4.2 Size Limit for Schema Prefixes (Linux Only)
IBM DB2 has an eight character limit for schema names. Therefore, the schema names are shortened to a maximum of three characters (plus schema prefix and underscore), making the maximum size of the user defined prefix four characters. For example, on IBM DB2 databases running on a Windows operating system, and all supported Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server databases, the SOA Infrastructure schema you create might be called DEV_SOAINFRA. However, on an IBM DB2 database running on a Linux operating system, this schema name must be shortened to DEV_ SOA.

8.4.3 Configuring Your DB2 Database
This section contains important configuration information for your IBM DB2 database. Make sure that your database is configured properly before running RCU to create schemas.
■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■

Supported Database Versions Setting the pagesize Setting the Log File Size for Oracle B2B Setting the Lock Timeout Parameter Setting the Registry Variables for the MDS Schema Reducing Lock Escalation Setting the CURR_COMMIT Parameter Increasing the Log File Size

28

8.4.3.1 Supported Database Versions Your IBM DB2 database must be version 9.7 or higher. 8.4.3.2 Setting the pagesize If you are creating schemas in an IBM DB2 database, a database instance with a pagesize of 32768 must be created prior to running RCU. Use the following commands:
db2 create database wc automatic storage yes on path using codeset UTF8 pagesize 32768

For more information, see "Creating a Database-Based Metadata Repository" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for more information. 8.4.3.3 Setting the Log File Size for Oracle B2B Because documents created in Oracle B2B are stored in the metadata repository, it is possible that the transaction log for the database can become full. If this occurs often, increase the LOGFILSIZ database configuration parameter to allow a larger log file. A larger log file requires more space but reduces the need for applications to retry the operation. To increase the LOGFILSIZ value to 8,192KB, use the following command:
db2 update database config for soainfra using LOGFILESIZ 8192

8.4.3.4 Setting the Lock Timeout Parameter IBM DB2 does not support row versioning during updates; if one user is updating a row, another user may be blocked when attempting to update a different row and must wait until the first transaction is committed or rolled back by the first user. To facilitate better concurrency, do not specify -1, which sets the lock timeout to infinity. Instead, you should set the lock timeout to a smaller value. For example:
db2 "update db cfg for mds using locktimeout 60"

To query the current lock timeout value on your database, you can use the following command:
db2 "get db cfg for database_name" | grep -i timeout

8.4.3.5 Setting the Registry Variables for the MDS Schema The values for registry variables must be set to the following for the Metadata Services (MDS) component:
db2set DB2_EVALUNCOMMITTED=OFF db2set DB2_SKIPINSERTED=OFF db2set DB2_SKIPDELETED=OFF

8.4.3.6 Reducing Lock Escalation IBM DB2 may escalate a "row lock" to a "table lock" due to memory stress or lock usage; as the result, you may find that a transaction is rolled back as a victim of "deadlock" or lock "timeout". You can increase the size of the MAXLOCKS and LOCKLIST configuration parameters to reduce lock escalation with the following commands:
db2 "update db cfg using locklist locklist_value" db2 "update db cfg using maxlocks maxlocks_value"

To view the current setting of these two parameters:
db2 "get db cfg" | grep -i lock

8.4.3.7 Setting the CURR_COMMIT Parameter Verify the isolation level to be set to Currently Committed (which is the default setting for DB2 9.7 databases):

29

db2 "get db cfg" | grep -i commit Currently Committed (CUR_COMMIT) = ON

You can set the Currently Committed isolation by the following command:
db2 'update database config for database_name using CUR_COMMIT ON'

8.4.3.8 Increasing the Log File Size If the database transaction log is often full, increase the database configuration parameter to allow for a larger log file. A larger log file requires more space, but it reduces the need for applications to retry the operation. You should set the log file size to at least 10000 and the number of primary log files to at least 50. Use the following commands:
db2 'update database config for database_name using LOGFILESIZ 10000' db2 'update database config for database_name using LOGPRIMARY 50'

8.4.4 RCU Supported Schemas for IBM DB2 Databases
Not all of the schemas that are supported in Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server databases are supported on IBM DB2 databases. Table 10 shows the schemas that are supported in IBM DB2 databases.
Note: Table 10 lists the schema names for an IBM DB2 database running on a Linux operating system, due to a restriction on the number of characters (including the prefix) in the schema name. For more information, see Section 8.4.2, "Size Limit for Schema Prefixes (Linux Only)".

If you are creating schemas in an IBM DB2 database running on a Windows operating system, the schema names are the same as the ones for a Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle database. See Section 8.4.1, "Creating Database Operating System Users" for important information about creating the operating system users. When the tablespaces are created, RCU will automatically create them with the necessary tablespace sizes.
