Oracle AppsUnlimited - Building your Own Machine on IaaS with EBS

Oracle Public Cloud gives multiple options to create a base image. There are options available from the market place which I will cover later. Here I will cover building your own machine image on IaaS with your own EBS Installation. If you are a customer running 12.1.3 this should interest you. This procedure can be used to build multiple development single node EBS images of your choice.

I will make the document generic to 12.2 and 12.1.3, so lets get started. Here are the high level steps

  • Build a local Oracle Linux image supported on Cloud , follow doc here and stop after rebooting the linux image.
  • Install EBS 12.2 or 12.1.3 with all the latest PSU,CPU, AD and TXK 
  • Run Pre-Clone on the Database Tier followed by Application Tier
  • Shutdown the Services
  • Follow doc here and complete the rest of the preparatory task for OPC
  • Upload the image
  • Spin-off a machine with the uploaded Image
  • Configure the Target system following Cloning documentation.
  • Finish post installation task if any
With the uploaded image , you can spin-off as many as EBS instances needed.

Reference Note for Cloning : Cloning Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 with Rapid Clone (Doc ID 1383621.1)

Though this procedure has a lot of work on customer end , I would recommend to try out Market Place Images.
