We have already performed the installation of VirtualBox and download the VM appliance in the last post
Now lets continue with the installation of 12.2.6 VM template in the Virtual box
1) Check if the Hardware Virtualization is enabled in the Desktop of Laptop where you have installed the Virtualbox
2) Now Open the Virtual box and click on Import Appliance
3) The Import Virtual Appliance wizard is displayed.
Click the Choose icon and locate the *.ova file of the virtual machine that you want to import. Click the Next button.
3) edit the ‘Virtual Disk Image’ path to a location with adequate space
After the process completes successfully, the imported virtual machine is listed in the Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager.
4) Configuring the Virtual Machine
Before starting the Virtual machine , you can change certain setting to suit the requirement.
You can Adjust the number of CPUs and the amount of RAM the VM will have. To configure the VM, select the imported virtual machine and click the Settings icon from the toolbar
For network settings,following things should be considered
a) If you start the VM on a stationary computer on a LAN with DHCP and want the VM accessible from other hosts on your network, you can attach network Adapter 1 as a Bridged Adapter. This will make the (guest) VM get its own IP address, independent of its host. This is the default mode
b) If you start the VM on a laptop computer that may move between networks, or if sharing widely is not required or desired, you should select NAT or Host-Only for network Adapter 1.
Host-Only allows your browser and SSH client on your laptop access to the VM.
We will be using Host-only adapter in this case
Click settings and configure host-only adapter in network settings
5) Now start the VM
As the VM boots, you will see a red progress bar at the bottom of the screen. Press the ESC key to see the detailed boot progress. At the end of the boot process, the output will pause for about 10 seconds displaying the IP address and host name information before ending with a login prompt.
When prompted, enter new passwords for the root , oracle, and applmgr users.
After you set the passwords and IP address if required, the initial login script proceeds to start the database and run Oracle E-Business Suite post clone steps, including AutoConfig. After that the database is shut down again. No user input is required during this process
When prompted, select whether to add start or stop of the database and application tier processes to the OS boot script. Enter VISION to configure the Vision Demo instance.
6) Get the IP address of the VM using ifconfig -a on the terminal and then adding it the window system
To edit the file on your Windows, add a line in c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts. You can open the file by pasting notepad c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts. in the Run box in the Start menu. The trailing dot ‘.’ is not optional.
Change directory to ‘/u01/install/APPS/scripts’ to access the database and application stop / start scripts and run ‘’ and ‘ ’

Before you can logon you will need to enable SYSADMIN and the Demo accounts, Oracle have provided scripts to do this
[oracle@apps scripts]$ ./enableSYSADMIN.sh
This script will let you set a new password for the SYSADMIN EBS Applications User, the default password most likely was “sysadmin”, so pick a different one now.
Enter new password for SYSADMIN:
Re-enter password for SYSADMIN:
Changing password for SYSADMIN
Log filename : L7556909.log
Report filename : O7556909.out
[oracle@apps scripts]$ ./enableDEMOusers.sh
Enter a new password for the EBS Applications Users, the default password
most likely was “welcome”, so pick a different one now…
Enter new password for DEMO users:
Re-enter password for DEMO users:

Log filename : L7567911.log
9) You should now be able to logon as ‘SYSADMIN’ or explore your Oracle EBS R12.2.6 VISION sandbox environment using the Demo users (see below) and the password defined above using “http://apps.example.com:8000”
