Oracle Database 12c Step by Step Installation in Windows.

With this post, I am sharing oracle database 12c Release 2 installation in windows. I have downloaded Oracle Database 12c software which is around 2.8GB from oracle Site.

File Name: winx64_12201_database

Extract the software zip file and go to the extracted folder and double click on setup.exe file to start the DB installation.

Oracle Universal Installer checks the system prerequisite and will start the installation window. 

Uncheck 'My oracle Support' and click 'Next'
When it prompts the below window, Click 'Yes'
Select 'Create and configure a database' and click 'Next'
I have selected 'Server class' and clicked 'Next'.
Since I want to check all the feature of this database 12c, I installed with 'Server Class'. We could go with 'Desktop Class' which is light and easy. Server class is heavy and takes 6 GB disk space.
Select 'Single instance database installation' and click 'Next'
Select 'Typical Install' and click 'Next'
Select the Oracle Base folder if you have your folder to install Oracle DB 12c. I have 'DB12c' in D drive. If we select the base path, all the other path will be loaded automatically.

In this step, enter database password and remember it.

Check 'Create as container Database' and Keep pluggable DB. because pluggable DB is required for all our RCU installation required for OBIEE later.

Finally Click 'Next'
Installer will run the prerequisite checks..
With this step, We could save the response file which could be used to silent install for other environments.
Click 'Install'
It would take some time to complete the installation. 
Oracle DB installation is in progress....
Oracle DB 12c is successfully installed. Just click 'Close' to complete the installation.

Now check all the services and connect to DB. Ready to rock an roll :)

Cheers! Bose
