In this series of tutorials we have seen how to install Oracle Linux 8.5 in a VirtualBox VM, how to install Oracle 19c Database Server and how to install the Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure. These steps are required in order to install the Oracle Analytics Server. And that’s what we are going to see now in this page, and once again I have documented all the steps in this page in case you need to do something similar.
I downloaded and I copied the “Oracle_Analytics_Server_Linux_6.4.0.jar” file from Oracle into the VM sharedFilder. I opened a Terminal window and I changed the current directory to “/media/sf_SharedFolder“.
I executed the jar file with the “java -jar Oracle_Analytics_Server_Linux_6.4.0.jar” command:
After a quick check of the CPU speed and swap partition size, the Installer was launched with the Welcome page (Step 1). I clicked the “Next” button to navigate to the next page:
Step 2 was used to configure the Auto Updates options. I selected the “Skip Auto Updates” checkbox and I clicked the “Next” button.
Step 3 asked for the “Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure” location. I had previously installed it in the “/home/oracle/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_Home” directory in this VM so I selected this location.
A click on the “View” button would allow to see the list of Feature Sets installed at this location:
I clicked the “Next” button to navigate to the step 4 that checked some prerequisites on the system. At first it detected that my Oracle Linux 8.5 VM was missing the “gcc-c++-x86_64” package.
I installed the missing package using the “sudo yum install gcc-c++.x86_64” command:
I confirmed that I wanted to install the package and after a few seconds it was successfully installed.
I executed the Oracle Analytics Server Linux 6.4.0 Installer again and this time all the prerequisite checks passed.
I clicked the “Next” button and Step 5 displayed a summary and the possibility to save a response file.
I clicked the “Install” button to launch the installation (Step 6).
The installation was rather quick and completed successfully after two minutes.
I clicked the “Next” button and the last step (Step 7) displayed the location of the copy of the logs files generated during the installation.
I clicked the “Finish” button to close the installer. There was a message telling that the installation logs had been successfully copied to the “/opt/oracle/oraInventory/logs” folder.
I now had an installation of Oracle Analytics Server 6.4 in the Oracle Linux 8.5 VM. The next step was to configure it.
