Following previous post Installation of ODI 12.2 on Centos 7.4 – Part 1 – Machine setup, our vmware is now ready for ODI installation.
Install ODI 12c
Back to our source, unzip the two odi files
Install ODI attempt 1
Failure… not a good start. The OpenJDK JVM is not supported on this platform.
I check java version but all seems ok. Problem is Oracle doesn’t support the OpenJDK, you have to download official Oracle JDK…
So I decied to go for the “official” JDK 1.8.0_131 (which is the one cited in the compatibility matrix).
Get the source (you need to go on oracle archive site, and copy download link to replace in following wget (or download directly from website) :
To be clean, I uninstall version 161…
Install version 131 :
Check java version
We can try odi install again !
Caution: I did a few attempt of install and run out of disk space. After stoping the installer do not free the tmp space used. I attempted restart, checked processes. In the end, I removed the file manually.
Install Odi attempt 2
Not crsytal clear stack …com.jgoodies.looks.plastic.PlasticComboBoxUI.(PlasticComboBoxUI.java:88)
But this is due to missing fonts in x11. Solved (partially as we will see) with x11 fonts installation :
Install Odi attempt 3
Yeah… …Partial success … …but all blank squares, seems like we are still missing some fonts.
After some research on the net. I solved issue with
Install Odi attempt 4
Yes ! (I didn’t try to solve the warning about monitor’s colors ;))
I proceeded with install.
Select you inventory directory and os group and click ok.
Skip auto updates.
Select ODI installation directory.
I chose standalone, as desired by client. Enterprise will require WebLogic (with some advantages you can find in documentations)..
Checks are ok.
Ready to install !
Perfect. Odi binaries are now installed.
Some more tasks are necessary to be able to work with ODI. First, we need to setup the repositories. We will cover this in my next post: Installation of ODI 12.2 on Centos 7.4 – Part 3 – ODI Repository and Standalone Agent Creation.
