How to install and configure Oracle Forms & Reports 12c fully unattended - Part 2

Important update! (June 14th, 2017): 

Please asure that all variables in setLocalEnv.sh are filled in correctly and adapted to Your environment. This especially for all variables regarding the Database Connection, like DB_PWD, DB_HOST, DB_PORT ... If not set correctly, the tool is not able to create the rcu repository which results in an error during runtime: 

Problem invoking WLST - traceback(innermost last):
(no code object) at line 0
File "/opt/wls/oracle/crFRExtension.py", line 143
changeDataSourceToXA('localSvcTblDataSource')

Part 2?? Yes! Part 1 - which covers the installation of FMW Infrastructure and Forms / Reports - can be found at Dirk Nachbars Blog: How to install and configure Oracle Forms & Reports 12c fully unattended - Part 1

The Task:

You have to create several new Forms 12c Domains / Environments

The Problem:

All oracle is providing to create Forms Domains is a Graphical User Interface. And there is no possibility of a 'silent' domain creation. In other words: Oracle does not support 'silent' domain creation.
Disadvantages:

  • each domain creation will take some time and needs manual input. 
  • possibility of typos during the create process is given,
  • standardization - which is essential imho - is not supported anymore 
  • no unattended installation, 
  • and so on ... name it.

The Solution:

Dirk Nachbar (http://dirknachbar.blogspot.ch/) and I created a toolset, based on a script written by Jan Peter Timmermann (https://jan-peter.me/), to do the whole stuff using scripts. But, You should know that oracle does not support silent installations officially. Nevertheless, it works very well, fast, reliable and repeatable.

The set consists of separate scripts to
  • set an appropriate environment to create the domain
  • install FMW Infrastructure software silently - if necessary (see Dirk Nachbars Blog for details)
  • install Forms / Reports software silently - if necessary (see Dirk Nachbars Blog for details)
  • create a domain
  • add necessary components for Forms / Reports to the domain and to finally form the forms / reports domain
  • create the webtier and - finally - 
  • configure the domain using forms config helper (see Dirk Nachbars Blog for details)

The scripts:

Lets start with the first script in the row - the crDomain.sh script which starts the whole process:
#!/bin/bash

That's it - basically ... If You want to know, how to install the necessary software (FMW Infrastructure plus Forms Reports) and to configure the domain using forms config helper, please have a look at Dirk Nachbar's Blog --> How to install and configure Oracle Forms & Reports 12c fully unattended - Part 1

Please leave comments, requests for enhancements or hints (in case we could do something better or with less overhead). 

Special thanks to Jan Peter Timmermann who shared important information, and by doing that, gave the initial input for the script set.

  1. I'm currently in the process of creating a docker for forms, so this is very timely.

    Issues so far:
    - Get a 'missing file' error when using DB_OMF. Appears to work with this set to false.
    - Had to comment out the changeDatasourceToXA code, and threw an 'unable to cast to java.sql.Driver'. Exception
    - MS_NAMES4FORMS/REPORTS should be FORMS_MS_NAME etc. in crFRExtension.sh
    - The content of crWebtierDomain.py just repeats the .sh

    Other than that, appears to be working! Really appreciate the time you've put into this.

    3. Prerequisite for DB_OMF=true is that the Database is prepared for Oracle Managed Files. The parameter does not set the Database into that mode. When set to false the database is assumed to have no OMF support.

    4. 1) Ok - I understand, thanks
      2) Not really sure what the requirement on making it an XA connection
      3/4) Great, thanks!!

    5. 2) --> Could You please check whether or not the mbeans used in changeDatasourceToXA are available? And: What is the exact errormessage / errorstack when the wlst code (changeDatasourceToXA) is executed?

  2. This is really awesome that you guys are doing this, we are just looking into docker for forms and this comes in handy, will execute and let you know. thanks.

  4. Hi Jay-Omaha US

    Could You please check the mbeans used in that changeDataSourceToXA function? They all should be available in Your domain's environment. I'll check the function tomorrow morning and give feedback asap.

    best regards

  5. Thank You, guys, for forwarding the errormessage. Reason is, that the install procedure could not connect to the repository database and create the rcu repository. I'm pretty sure, that the lines

    # Repository Connect
    export DBPWD=
    export COMPONENTPWD=
    export DB_HOST=
    export DB_PORT=
    export DB_SERVICE=

    in Your setLocalEnv.sh file are still empty. Please fill in the necessary information and retry.

    I will make an update in my blogpost ...

    BTW: Was my fault ... sorry for that

  6. Oh, thanks for your reply Robert.
    looks like 1 problem with changeDataSourceToXA('localSvcTblDataSource') was missing indentation and not aligned with other calls.
    SyntaxError: inconsistent dedent
    corrected that i get the
    [EL Severe]: ejb: --java.lang.ClassCastException: oracle.jdbc.xa.client.OracleXADataSource cannot be cast to java.sql.Driver

    for some reason, opss ds seems to be failing but log is not getting created, checking it.

  7. Hi Robert,
    whatever i do, i am not seeing the typical formsweb.cfg file under domains. I only see it under forms/templates/config. That tells me that some step is still missing?
    the ohs_createInstance also has problems finding machine name
    ohs_createInstance(instanceName=v_ohs_componentname, machine='AdminServerMachine', listenPort=v_ohs_listenport, sslPort=v_ohs_sslport)
    Since we dont give machine name while creating domain, i think its empty and not matching anything ( i tried changing to name under config.xml)

  8. Jay, good morning ...

    Seems to be a little difficult ;-) ... would You mind to send some more information to this email address: robert.crames.blog@gmail.com

    I would like to know:
    - OS ... manufacturer and release
    - Database Release and Edition
    - FMW Infrastructure Release
    - Forms / Reports Release

    would be great to have a copy of Your setLocalEnv.sh (replace passwords by text 'password', and all identifying stuff like hostnames by a replacement name - for example host.domain.com) as well as an output file of Your run of crDomain.sh (start crDomain.sh and 'tee' all output to a file --> ./crDomain.sh | tee -a crDomain.log (or something like that))

    best regards

  11. Hi Khaled,

    thank You for the information. Could You please send the AdminServer logfile where the 'cannot be cast' messages are in, send to robert.crames.blog@gmail.com?
    Next: Are You able to connect to the repository database, using the EZConnect connect string? Is the database a EE or SE - and what version?
    best regards Robert

  12. Hello,

    First of all, thank you for this good work.

    Just to mention that the Python os.environ method caches the environment variables when it is first called.
    So, even if you restart the server, the value returned by os.environ will never be the new one.

    1. Hi Tim,

      thank You for Your valuable input. I had a look into phyton's documentation and found:
      "This mapping is captured the first time the os module is imported, typically during Python startup as part of processing site.py. Changes to the environment made after this time are not reflected in os.environ, except for changes made by modifying os.environ directly.'

      Nevertheless - to be sure, I'll create a sample script to check that. Keep You up2date ...

      best regards
      Robert

    2. Finally I have moved the RCU data loading in the crDomain.sh script as I think you don't need to be connected to WLST to execute it.

      I have also added a check on available components and a final check to list all schemas loaded.

      Note that the following script only load data in a pre-created RCU done by a DBA.

      echo Creating password file
      echo $DB_PWD > $PWD_FILE
      echo $COMPONENT_PWD >> $PWD_FILE
      echo $COMPONENT_PWD >> $PWD_FILE
      echo $COMPONENT_PWD >> $PWD_FILE
      echo $COMPONENT_PWD >> $PWD_FILE
      echo $COMPONENT_PWD >> $PWD_FILE

      echo List Available Components
      $ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/bin/rcu -silent -listComponents

      echo Loading Data in RCU in DB $DB_CONNECT_STRING
      $ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/bin/rcu -silent -dataLoad -databaseType ORACLE -connectString ${DB_CONNECT_STRING} -dbUser ${DB_USER} -dbRole ${DB_ROLE} -useSamePasswordForAllSchemaUsers true -schemaPrefix ${SCHEMA_PREFIX} -component STB -component IAU -component IAU_APPEND -component IAU_VIEWER -component OPSS -f < ${PWD_FILE}

      echo List Repository schemas in DB $DB_CONNECT_STRING
      $ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/bin/rcu -silent -listSchemas -databaseType ORACLE -connectString ${DB_CONNECT_STRING} -dbUser ${DB_USER} -dbRole ${DB_ROLE} -schemaPrefix ${SCHEMA_PREFIX} -f < ${PWD_FILE}

    3. Hi Tim,

      great job :-) ... and happy to see, that our (Dirk's and my) scriptset is a basis for other admins solutions.

      regarding the 'move': my intention to place the rcu creation in the wlst script was, to have all stuff related to a certain 'task block' on one place. But, You are absolutely right, You can handle that in crDomain.sh as well.

      Thank you or sharing Your enhancements.

      best regards
      Robert

  13. Hi Robert,
    Sorry for the delayed reply.
    I finally fixed all my issues and actually running in a docker container now.
    1) Changed XADataSource to OracleDriver jdbc driver like other ones.
    cd('/JDBCSystemResource/'+datasource+'/JdbcResource/'+datasource+'/JDBCDriverParams/NO_NAME_0')
    set('DriverName','oracle.jdbc.OracleDriver')

    2) Had issues with my oracle db -xe 11g docker containter, changed that and my RCU schemas were fine after that

    my only question, how do i add machine name (AdminServerMachine) to the domain creation of the admin server so that i could create the OHS instance property, otherwise, it gives error.

    1. Hi Jay-Omaha

      great to hear that You've fixed the issues ... :-)

      Regarding Your question: Could You please describe that in more detail? I ask, because after the domain is created, the AdminServerMachine is already attached to all Managed Servers and the Admin Server.

      best regards
      Robert

  14. Actually, had to add this in crDomain.py to get this to work.
    create('AdminServerMachine','Machine')

    1. Hi Jay,

      there is something wrong either with Your environment or with the scripts. creation of 'AdminServerMachine' is part of crFRExtension.py and done automatically.
      Additionally, the configuration of the XA datasources - that should work out of the box ...
      Could You please provide a list of releases and versions of the software You are using?

      kind regards
      Robert
