How to Install FMW 11g Web Tier Managed by Fusion Middleware Control (EM)



Last updated on September 2nd, 2016 at 05:39 pm

FMW 11g Web Tier can be managed using manual method (opmnctl method ) or we can manage using Fusion Middleware Control (EM).For FMW 11g Web Tier to be managed by Fusion Middleware Control (EM), you need to associate that with weblogic domain.

Here are some cases we can consider for the management of FMW 11g Web Tier by Fusion Middleware Control (EM)

Case -I Both FMW 11g web tier and Weblogic is being installed new

1. Install certified versions of JDK and latest Oracle WebLogic Server (WLS) 10.3.6 for your platform. On the last screen, UN-check the “Quick Start” option, as creating the sample getting started domain it will suggest will not be sufficient and it will probably conflict with what you need to do for the FMW 11g Web-Tier installation and configuration.

2. Install a Web-Tier 11g 11.1.1.6 (or above) home installing only the binaries, do not choose to configure. The configuration will be done in a later step, after you have ensure the Enterprise Manager and Java Required Files (JRF) domain templates are available.

3. Use WLHOME/common/bin/config.sh  to bring up the Oracle WebLogic Server Configuration Wizard, and choose to “Create New Domain”. Going through the prompts, you may also set up a Managed Server at this time, but may be done later. A Managed Server is typically created when running custom Java applications. This step is to set up the domain for the Admin Server, which will be later configured for the FMW Web-Tier 11g products.

Important:
It is important to chose the Enterprise Manager and Java Required Files (JRF) options for the domain. These are not provided on a default domain. If this mistake was made, you may run config.sh a second time and choose “Extend an Existing Domain” option and choose these.

4. Start (or restart) the admin server using the ORACLE_HOME/user_projects/domains/<your_domain>/bin/StartWeblogic.sh .

If this successfully starts, you should be able to access WebLogic Server administration console at the following URL:
http://<machinename >:<port>/console
The following should also be working but will not have the instance for Oracle HTTP Server and Oracle Web Cache created yet:
http://<machinename >:<port>/em
5. Use the FMW 11g Web-Tier ORACLE_HOME/bin/config.sh  to bring up the Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard. This is the step which was by-passed during initial installation. This will create the FMW Web-Tier 11g instance in the new domain for Oracle HTTP Server and Oracle Web Cache. Choose the Admin Server connection associated with the WLS domain as tested in the previous step.

Note the two separate locations of the config.sh in bold. It is important to run the correct one at the correct time. This is the nuance of this install type.

6. Test the Oracle Fusion Middleware Control with the following address, where you should see the instance now just created:
http://<machinename >:<port>/em
Case -II  Both FMW 11g web tier and Weblogic are existing

Step 1: Create or extend domain with JRF and EM templates if it is not present in weblogic installation
Use WL_HOME/common/bin/config.sh to bring up the WLS Configuration Wizard, and choose to “Create New Domain”. On the “Select Domain Source” screen, it is important to select the “Oracle Enterprise Manager” and “Oracle JRF” options

or

Use WL_HOME/common/bin/config.sh to bring up the WLS Configuration Wizard, and choose “Extend an Existing Domain”. If not already selected, then choose “Oracle Enterprise Manager” and “Oracle JRF” options.
Test the Oracle Fusion Middleware Control with the following address on your admin server port:

http://<machinename >:<port>/em

This should work as long as the “Oracle Enterprise Manager” and “Oracle JRF” options are chosen for your domain. However, you will not have any components or instances to manage until the next step.

How to extend the weblogic domain
1. Run the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Configuration AssistantUnix:
<MW HOME>/wlserver_10.3/common/bin/config.sh2. Choose the option “Extend an existing WebLogic Server Domain”.3. Choose the WebLogic Server Domain you wish to extend and click Next.4. The following screen will have the option “Extend my domain automatically to support the following added products”

5. Select the Oracle Enterprise Manager and Oracle JRF options associated with the oracle_common directory. Oracle JRF is selected automatically when the Oracle Enterprise Manager is selected.

Step 2:
If the OHS instance is not configured

Create instance, component and register

cd ORACLE_HOME/opmn/bin

opmnctl createinstance -oracleInstance /ORACLE/MIDDLEWARE/Oracle_WT1/instances/instance1 -adminRegistration OFF

opmnctl createcomponent -componentType OHS -oracleInstance /ORACLE/MIDDLEWARE/Oracle_WT1/instances/instance1 -componentName ohs1

opmnctl createcomponent -componentType WebCache -oracleInstance /ORACLE/MIDDLEWARE/Oracle_WT1/instances/instance1 -componentName webcache1

opmnctl registerinstance -adminHost <hostname.domainname> -adminPort 7001 -adminUsername weblogic -oracleInstance /ORACLE/MIDDLEWARE/Oracle_WT1/instances/instance1 -oracleHome /ORACLE/MIDDLEWARE/Oracle_WT1 -instanceName instance1 -wlserverHome /ORACLE/MIDDLEWARE

Step 3

If the OHS instance is configured

cd ORACLE_HOME/opmn/bin

opmnctl registerinstance -adminHost <hostname.domainname> -adminPort 7001 -adminUsername weblogic -oracleInstance /ORACLE/MIDDLEWARE/Oracle_WT1/instances/instance1 -oracleHome /ORACLE/MIDDLEWARE/Oracle_WT1 -instanceName instance1 -wlserverHome /ORACLE/MIDDLEWARE

 

There may be other cases also but these are most useful ones
