Installing Portal BRM on RHE 5

I’m assuming that you have a fresh RHE 5 installed on a 64bit VM machine / actual machine, I preferred using a VMWare player image since I wanted to be able to snapshot and role back whenever I wanted to.

 

Start by knowing what you have on, by typing command

$pinrev

this should yield all the portal products installed on your system, in this scenario I assume that nothing is installed on the system.

 

the next step should be installing Oracle DB 10g, reduce the SGA size to limit impact on your machine performance.

 

NLS_lang should be set to american_america.UTF8, if you didnt set correctly you’ll get an ORA12705 error.

Copy the sources to /temp

 

Create user pin

 

Start by running ThirdParty*.bin as pin

 

at this point you need to run .source.me.sh it can be found under “/opt/portal/ThirdParty/

 

Make sure to export the java bin to path if not included in the .bashrc

 

The java home should be the one in the “/opt/portal/Thirdparty/Jre/1.5*

 

Install SNMP third party tool as mentioned in the official installation guide.

 

Source the source.me.sh file from thirdparty folder.

$source source.me.sh

 

Create db user pin and grant it  resource/connect/DBMS_lock/create_session

run 7*Potal_Base_*_opt.bin to install portal base.

 

Use default ports

DM_Port 12950

CM_Port 11960

 

I chose to enable partitioning event files to make sure to get real life like system.

 

After installing it you have to run

source /opt/portal/7.3/source.me.sh

pin_setup

at which point I received an error stating that line 7 of code had an issue, just vi the file and add a space after the [ and it’ll work, this is due to the differences between bash and ksh.

 

settings can be found under /opt/portal/7.3/setup/pin_setup.values
