Last updated 7/8/2008

This is a guide for installing Oracle Discoverer 10.1.2 at the University of Virginia. It is a multi-step process. 1. Downloading and unzipping software 2. Installation of base product 3. Applying the 10.1.2.2 patch (first patch) 4. Applying a one-off specific fix patch (second patch) 5. Final Steps (TNSNAMES insert, connectivity test, etc.) NOTE: It may be less confusing to save these instructions as a Word document, and then open that file in Word and use CTRL+Click to follow the links.

Downloading and unzipping software


Complete the following down loads to either a local or a shared drive into a folder named Temp. Down load Step 1: Down load the Discoverer 10.1.2 installation and the one-off (second) patch zip file into your Temp directory from the Research Computing site: http://www.web.virginia.edu/rescomp/ (also on Software Central,/Windows XP Software.) Down load Step2: Down load the Discoverer 10.1.2.2 patch (first) into your Temp directory from http://www.virginia.edu/integratedsystem/howdoi/FAQs/TechHelp.html#discoverer. This patch is huge; 1.6 GB zipped. Due to size restrictions with ie6, it must be down loaded separately. We apologize for this inconvenience. Warning: It is a super patch to update all Oracle Business Intelligence tools found on the workstation. If your department accesses Oracle applications other than the Integrated System, careful evaluation of the patch is required. (This does NOT include Oracle Calendar.) Down load Step3: Down load the tnsnames.ora file into your Temp directory from http://www.virginia.edu/integratedsystem/howdoi/FAQs/TechHelp.html#discoverer Unzip Step 1: If you havent all ready unzipped the down load from the research computing website: Navigate to the Temp directory to which you down loaded the software and unzip the Discoverer 10.1.2 and patch2.zip file directly into the Temp directory in which you down loaded it. This will place two additional zip files into the Temp directory. Unzip the Temp/Discoverer10.1.2.0.zip file into a new folder Temp/10-1-install.

Note: The remaining Temp\patch2_deploy.zip zip file will need to be unzipped later, as is must be unzipped into a specific named directory created by the installation of the base product on each client PC. Unzip Step 2: Unzip the Temp/p4960210_10122_WINNT.zip into a new folder called Temp/10-1-patch-1.

When unzipping say YES TO ALL to replace all files. 2. To apply the second path, run c:\oracle\BIToolsHome_1\patch2.bat to apply the one-off patch. a. Follow the on-screen instructions b.
