Check your host file

[root@james database]# sudo gedit /etc/hosts

your host file should should look something like this with the machine name added

127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4 your-machine-hostname
::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6
192.X.Y.Z your-machine-hostname

all the above in 3 lines

Selected Domains

This Blog Does not cover installation of SOA BPM, Webcenter Spaces, UCM and Weblogic Server – Its assumed that all of them have been installed.

You can have your own set of Domains Configured depending upon your needs. my soa_domain would have SOA, BPM, BAM, Webcenter Spaces, Discussion

  1. Basic Weblogic Server Domain 10.3.6.0
  2. Oracle BPM Suite for Developers
  3. Oracle Webcenter Spaces
  4. Oracle SOA Suite for Developers
  5. Oracle UCM – Content Server
  6. Oracle Enterprise Manager
  7. Oracle BAM
  8. Oracle Webcenter Discussion Server
  9. Oracle WSM Policy Manager
  10. Oracle JRF

Screenshot from 2013-04-06 22:17:52 Screenshot from 2013-04-06 22:18:01

Shutdown all the Managed and Admin Servers.

run Config.sh Script again ,

extend the domain with the oracle.bpm.spaces_template_11.1.1.jar template. On the Select Domain Source screen, select the Base this domain on an existing template option, and click Browse to locate the template

Extend the domain with the following template

/home/james/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_WC1/common/templates/applications/oracle.bpm.spaces_template_11.1.1.jar

Start Admin Server and Webcenter Content, Discussion and Webcenter Portal one after another – Portal being the last one.

Handling – Out of Memory Exceptions

In order to improve the performance and avoid “Out of Memory” Exceptions we need to edit setSOADomainEnv.sh file under /fmw_domain/bin directory

make replacement as shown below.

DEFAULT_MEM_ARGS="-Xms768m -Xmx1536m"
PORT_MEM_ARGS="-Xms768m -Xmx1536m"


if [ "${JAVA_VENDOR}" != "Oracle" ] ; then
DEFAULT_MEM_ARGS="${DEFAULT_MEM_ARGS} -XX:PermSize=768m -XX:MaxPermSize=1536m"
PORT_MEM_ARGS="${PORT_MEM_ARGS} -XX:PermSize=768m -XX:MaxPermSize=1536m"
fi

Avoid logins – boot.properties file

boot.properties : Every time weblogic Managed Server such as bam_server1 starts it asks for username and password, create a simple boot.properties file with following lines

username=weblogic
password=welcome1

and place this file in following directory for all corresponding Managed servers , this helps to avoiding password typing during startups.

/home/<>/Oracle/<> /user_projects/domains//servers//security

for example
/home/james/Oracle/Middleware/user_projects/domains/wc_domain/servers/UCM_server1/security

UCM Configurations

Start Admin Server and UCM

When you first time login to UCM at http://localhost:16200/cs you will be asked to set intradoc port set it as 4444. you would need to

restart the UCM

Open Advanced Component Manager of UCM at

http://localhost:16200/cs/idcplg/cs-admin/pxs?IdcService=GET_COMPONENT_DATA

Enable Folders_g and

restart the UCM

Open Component Manager of UCM at

http://localhost:16200/cs/idcplg/cs-admin/pxs?IdcService=GET_ROOT_IDC_ADMIN_PAGE

Ensure that the following are Checked

  1. Dynamic Converter
  2. InboundRefinerySupport
  3. ZipRenditionManagement
  4. WebCenterConfigure

and Update

restart the UCM

Click on Administration, Select Admin Applet , Select User Admin, Add

PersonalSpaces and ProcessPortal users , password as welcome1 as shown and give all Available roles to these users

Screenshot from 2013-04-06 22:33:34

Console Configurations

Login to Weblogic Console at http://localhost:7001/console

Select Home -> Security Realms -> myRealm -> Users and Groups -> Groups

add ProcessPortalUser Group as shown

Screenshot from 2013-04-06 22:28:57

restart the Admin Server and UCM

EM Configurations

Start the Admin Server, UCM , Webcenter Portal

login to Enterprise Manager http://localhost:7001/em/ check for Content Server Configuration to have correct intradoc port 4444

Screenshot from 2013-04-06 22:37:42

The UCM Connection portal-content-server for Webcenter Portal will be auto generated later in this Blog but you need to change from sysadmin to weblogic

Screenshot from 2013-04-06 22:39:48

BPM Process Spaces Configurations for PS6

This is where we would Integrate Webcenter Portal with BPM process Spaces.

Copy BPM Process_spaces folder to Middleware Directory

from

/home/james/Oracle/Middleware/Oracle_SOA1/bpm/process_spaces/

to

/home/james/Oracle/Middleware/process_spaces

Edit  process-portal-install.properties it should look as shown below

Configuring Discussion Server

Ensure that UCM , Discussion Server, Webcenter Managed Servers are running

Step 1: Login to Discussion Server Admin URL

http://localhost:8890/owc_discussions/admin/login.jsp?url=index.jsp

Go to Settings -> Admin/Moderators tab -> Grant New Permissions ,

your weblogic permissions should look something like this ,
