Oracle EBS R12 Installation on VM -OEL 5.5

After long time i am posting this article about Installation of Oracle R12 on a desktop / laptop.
The issue with any ERP is the accessibility for learning new version. If you work in a large enterprise then you have the luxury to access latest Oracle ERP versions but if you are in a small enterprise or independent then accessibility is an issue. Even if you want to learn new features, want to play around and do R&D in latest versions you do not have much choice other than having your own Oracle R12 instance.

Host machine -Windows 7 / min 300GB Free disk space / min 4GB RAM / Core2Duo processor
Guest machine -VMWare / VMPlayer 3.x / 300GB Disk space / 4GB RAM / Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.5

Oracle EBS R12 -R12.1.1

I have divided the video in 2 parts.
I hope the videos would help in your installation.

  1. Good one, It really helps for non DBA (like me) to setup the instance for persona use.

    Keep it up


  2. Hi,

    I was able to install R12.1.1 guest machine vMware on OEL 5.5 and got to a login page.
    But I could not run the Oracle Forms Functions.

    So I went back to my HOST Windows/XP and updated my hosts with hostname and
    I want to run the R12 instance as a standalone no network connection.
    What do I need to connect to the Linux Guest and open functions with Oracle Forms.


  3. The changes has to be done within the linux host file.
