Oracle EBS 12.x Oracle Object Installer Steps in Reintegration Guide

Article # 3026664 - Page views: 114

Issue

After doing an Oracle EBS upgrade to 12.2 and following the steps in the MarkView Reintegration Guide, when we follow the steps to run the Oracle Objects installer, we get the error: "software is already installed, nothing needs to be done" and the installer does not proceed. Do we skip the installation?

 

Cause

  • This is related to a documentation defect: 1327950: The Reintegration Guide was written for upgrades in both EBS 11 to 12.1 or 12.2 or for Upgrades of 12.1 to 12.2 - reported in versions 10.0 & 10.1 documentation. 
  • The documentation says to select "Standard Full Install". This however only applies to customers who have upgraded from 11 to 12, as they will need to select the R12 Oracle Objects full install.
  • For customers who are on 12.1 and going to 12.2, the installer still needs to be run but a full install can not be selected. 
  • NOTE: The MarkView 10.3 version of the documentation is correct. 

 

 

Solution

  • Note: Do not skip running the installation.
  • For customers who are going from 12.1 to 12.2 when you are on the screen where you select between "Standard Full Install" and "Partial Install" please select a Partial Installation. 
  • Customers re-doing the re-integration steps after applying a fix pack, or an Oracle patch, but not changing EBS version (example, already on 12.2) should select Partial install (No DB components).
