Install 64 bit WebLogic on 64 bit O.S (Unix/Linux)

Install 64 bit Weblogic Server on Linux Unix


Install Weblogic Generic Jar Installer ( Installer with .jar installer )


Weblogic generic installer that can be used on any supported platform.

Important Considerations Before Installation 

1. Make sure you have installed 64 bit JVM according to the weblogic you are going to install  
    and added your JAVA_HOME variable and PATH for java

2. Make sure to specify -d64 option on installation command ( see below ) otherwise later you 
    would face some library related issues

   For example, you would get below exception during you will try to start node manager

<SEVERE> <Fatal error in node manager server>
weblogic.nodemanager.common.ConfigException: Native version is enabled but nodemanager 
native library could not be loaded

Command to install :

java -d64 –jar <installer>

Like


$ java -d64 –jar  wls1033_generic.jar
If your installer getting exited after extracting the jar then you may need to change your temp dir like below


java -d64 –jar  -Djava.io.tmpdir=<specify a path here with enough space>  wls1033_generic.jar
OR


java -d64 –jar wls1033_generic.jar -Djava.io.tmpdir=<specify a path here with enough space>






Important Note During Installation :

If you are using a Generic installer (JAR file) to install WebLogic Server, and $JAVA_HOME points to a JDK that is later than JDK 1.60_05, you cannot deselect the I wish to receive security updates via My Oracle Support check box on "Register for Security Updates" screen, In this case, if you do not want to install security updates:

  1. Leave the Email and Support Password fields blank, and click Next. An Email Address Not Specified dialog box appears.
  2. Click Yes. An Are You Sure? dialog box appears.
  3. Click Yes to continue with the installation.
