3. Change the directory to the directoryyou created in Step 1:
4. $ cd OraDb12c
5. Mount the disk, if it is not mounted.
Some platformsautomaticallymount the disk when you insert it into the drive. If the disk does
not mount automatically, see the "Mounting Disks" section for platform-specificinformation.

Applying Fusion middleware platform patches:
Before beginning ensure OBIEE,ODIand Weblogic is stopped – including the node manager.
There are a number of patches to various Fusion Middleware components that need to be
applied before we can proceed. These patches are all supplied as part of the BI Apps media
pack within three zip files.
Your temporary patch directory should contain 5 sub-directories, biappsshiphome,
odi, oracle_common, soa & weblogic
These directories contain more zip files – these will be unzipped by the script that
performs the patch installation.
Now the patch script can be run. This uses perl and needs to be run from a
Change directory to the <OBIEE_HOME>Oracle_BI1biappstoolsbin directory.
The APPLY_PATCHES.pl script uses a parameter file, apply_patches_import.txt, to
control its process and this is located in the same directory.
You need to edit this file in a text editor and amend all of the paths specified. The
original file looks like this:
Once the apply_patches_import.txt file is edited, run the following command to
apply the patch
# perl APPLY_PATCHES.pl <PARAM_INPUT_FILE_PATH>
Youcan checkthe logofthe patch, presentin the WORKDIRdirectory

> Confirm the prerequisite checkspass ok:
> Enter the password for the Weblogic admin user (the other fields should be default filled):
> The next screen shows youthe home location details, but you can’t change anything
> Select ‘BI Application Components’ to install:
> You now need to specify a password for the OBIEE repository – a new RPDfile will be
installed by this process.
> Now youneed to provide the locationand user-id/password for the OBIEE MDS schema –
created by the RCU when OBIEE wasinstalled.
> Next comes the BI Apps repository schema – BIAPPS_BIACOMP,createdby the BI Apps
> Then it needs the connectiondetails for the data warehouse schema, BIAPPS_DW:
> And finally the ODIRepository schema, BIAPPS_ODI_REPO:
> Next youcan specify the ports, but again I’m keeping defaults – 9704 for BIACM and
15001 forthe ODI Console:
