My original plan was to lay out the entire install step-by-step for all of you. However, the way things turned out, it would be a little dishonest if I did. A couple of other folks have already done most of the work here, and I relied heavily on their experiences in my own install. So, rather than "borrowing" or replicating what they wrote, let's just give credit where credit is due...along with a "thank you".
I've listed the great reference docs from Oracle in my prior post on this subject, so I'll focus here on material from non-Oracle employees - I could not have finished without their contributions:
- Pythian's John Piwowar provides some great preparation notes for installing a 12.2 Vision instance here.
- The Online Apps DBA, Atul Kumar, walks in detail through both the preparation and the install of EBS 12.2 here and here.
I'm sure I'll have some observations to share as I continue to test my install, and I'll be sure to share them here. In the meantime, check the Oracle reference docs as well as the blog posts from John and Atul before you try this. And keep in mind that it went well for me, so it can't be all that difficult, right?
