R12 (12.1.1) Installed on Solaris 10

After some initial struggle with server we were able to finish our 12.1.1 installation on Solaris 10.
I am trying to list mistakes we made or issues we encountered.
1. We started 12.1.1 on Solaris 8, which was mistake. As 11g database is not certified on Solaris 8.
2. After moving to Solaris 10, our team forget to bounce Server after setting Kernal parameters.
3. As we have one disk and it was damn slow, so took 17 hrs to complete.
4. Make sure you have atleast 250GB free space for Vision instance installation.
5. 47 GB binaries will take and 60GB stage area.

Anyways after creating stage area from edelivery binaries, we were able to complete Vision instance installation.

Happy Troubleshooting !!!

Hi there,

your blogs looks interesting to me as similar sort of thing we are planning to implement. Let me know if you can share some of your views. we are planning to implementR12.1 on solaris containers for production. and other 6 environments to support that (dev,test,demo,pre-prod, DR etc) we have two sun T5140 for the production and one T5120 for the dev side. we are thinking to have 3 containers on production side boxes. so that we can have R12.1 mid tier installed on two servers i mean we will have two mid tiers on seperate containers on different servers and one database tier on any of the server. we don't want to use clustering at the moment. Please let me know if you can validate our architecture. I am still vague about having two mid tiers on different servers, this is only becuase to achieve some failover things. let me know if you can suggest a better architecture here. also let me know if you need more details.

I really appreciate ur help here.
