Creating a New Single-Node Oracle E-Business Suite Installation on Oracle Cloud

Before you read : Please note the documentation and procedures for Lifting and Shifting On-Premise to Oracle Cloud is constantly evolving. Instruction here are high level and recommend to review the latest documentation.

This procedure could be the quickest way of getting an e-business suite 12.2.5 instance in IaaS public cloud.

To the compute account pull either a EBS 12.2.5 Demo Install Vision Image or a Fresh Install Image using Get App method.

Here is the Demo Install EBS 12.2.5 Image



Here is the Fresh Install EBS 12.2.5 Image


Click the Get App and this action would copy the Image to the Compute Storage.


Now with the Image available in the Compute Storage we will be good to start with a new provisioning.

From the Compute Account , Click Create Instance


Search for the Fresh Install Image and Select it


Select the shape of the machine


Give a name to the Instance


Review the storage , at this point if you wish to add more space you can do it or it can be done later once the instance is provisioned.

Finally review and click the Create button


From there the backend operation will take care and the instance will get provisioned. Once the instance is provisioned view the instance from the compute page and log into the instance with the assigned IP and Key.  Validate the environment.

What happens at the back end 
  • fresh image has pre-cloned environment staged and ready
  • first database is prepared using config clone option
  • then the application is prepared using config clone
  • run and patch files system are setup
With this process a base 12.2.5 environment is available to you. From here you can customize to your need. 

Hope this helps ! Thanks for reading.

Oracle AppsUnlimited - Migrate from On-Premise to Oracle Cloud ( Lift and Shift )


Before you read : Please note the documentation and procedures for Lifting and Shifting On-Premise to Oracle Cloud is constantly evolving. Instruction here are high level and recommend to review the latest documentation.

Migrate from On-Premise to Oracle Cloud ( Lift and Shift )

On-Premise Environment 12.1.3 or 12.2 can be moved to cloud , please review the "What Do You Need ?" section to understand the detailed requirement.

Here are the high level steps

  • Identify the EBS environment for lift and shift. Make sure that it meets the requirement for migration.
  • Create the compute infrastructure. Log into the compute service console and create the storage, virtual machines with the computing power required. Format the storage volumes and mount then to the requirement
  • Download the cloning utility Patch 22336899
  • Open the ports between the Source and the Target hosts
  • Update the cln.props which is available inside the patch , ensure that properties MODE and BACKUP_TYPE are commented out as they are used for EBS with DBaaS provisioning.
  • Run the EBS Cloud Clone Utility perl ./ebsclone.pl
  • Run post configuration steps as necessary.

What happens in the backend ?
  • Pre-Clone is run on the DB and MT
  • Necessary files are copied , tarred and compressed
  • Files are moved from On-Premise to Cloud 
  • Config clone is run on the Target Cloud IaaS VMs
Hope this helps.
