3)  Reconstructing and Staging the Downloaded Appliance

Now we need to Unzip these 19 Zips and Concatenate the 19 files to create the final file

a) Unzip all the 19 files

You will need additional 75G space for storing the Unzipped files

For Unix, we can use below command also to unzip

for i in *.zip
do
unzip $i
done

b) Assemble the 19 files

Assemble the files using the command below on Windows

type Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.00 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.01 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.02 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.03 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.04 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.05 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.06 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.07 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.08 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.09 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.10 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.11 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.12 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.13 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.14 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.15 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.16 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.17 Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova.18 > Oracle-E-Business-Suite-12.2.6_VISION_INSTALL.ova
