How to install and configure Oracle Traffic Director 12c - fully unattended

Posted by Dirk Nachbar on Friday, September 15, 2017 with 4 comments
As I am not a fan of clicking through several Configuration Wizards, I am trying to script as much as possible.
Here is a fully unattended way of how to install and configure Oracle Traffic Director 12.2.1.3.0.

Following pre requirements are necessary:
  • you need a certified Linux Server, e.g. with Oracle Enterprise Linux 7.3
  • an oracle user on the Linux Server
  • all required packages as per documentation and the necessary kernel settings and so on
  • create an ORACLE_BASE, e.g. /u00/app/oracle
Now you need to create an install/stage directory under $ORACLE_BASE:

cd /u00/app/oracle
mkdir install

Now place in the above create following Software Installation files from Oracle Technology Network:

Copy all above listed files to your Linux Server under $ORACLE_BASE/install and extract the Oracle WebLogic Server Infrastructure Installer and the Oracle Traffic Director

cd /u00/app/oracle/install
unzip fmw_12.2.1.3.0_infrastructure_Disk1_1of1.zip
unzip fmw_12.2.1.3.0_otd_linux64_Disk1_1of1.zip

Next you need to create several files for the unattended installation and configuration:
  • setLocalEnv.sh: This file contains all the required variables for the installation and configuration
  • silent_jdk.sh: Performs the installation of the JDK 1.8 Update 144
  • silent_wls_infra.sh: Performs the installation of the Oracle WebLogic Server Infrastructure 12.2.1.3.0
  • respone_file_wls_infra.rsp: Response file for the WebLogic Server Infrastructure 12.2.1.3.0 installation
  • silent_otd.sh: Performs the installation of Oracle Traffic Director 12.2.1.3.0 on top of the Oracle WebLogic Server Infrastructure 12.2.1.3.0
  • response_file_otd.rsp: Response file for the Oracle Traffic Director 12.2.1.3.0 installation
  • oraInst.loc: contains the location of the Oracle Inventory, used by silent_wls_infra.sh and silent_otd.sh
  • crDomain.sh: Shell script wrapper for the configuration of the Oracle Traffic Director as "Collocated Installation", which means the Oracle Traffic Director will reside inside a WebLogic Domain with Restricted JRF, so no Oracle Metadata Repository is required
  • crDomain.py: Python Script for the Domain creation including generation of a sample Traffic Director Instance and Configuration
All the above mentioned files should be created under $ORACLE_BASE/install

setLocalEnv.sh

Start Domain manually by using startNodeManager.sh and startWeblogic.sh

Now you can startup the NodeManager and the WebLogic AdminServer:

cd $DOMAIN_HOME/bin
nohup ./startNodeManager > /dev/null 2>&1 &

cd $DOMAIN_HOME
nohup ./startWebLogic.sh > /dev/null 2>&1 &

Wait some minutes and then access with a browser the Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control http://<servername>:<port>/em



Under the top right menu option "WebLogic Domain" go to "Administration / OTD Configurations"


And now you can see your Oracle Traffic Director Instance and Configuration and start the Instance from here, mark the line of your Instance and then click "Start Instances"


And that's it ... with the above script set you are easily in the position to install and configure your Oracle Traffic Director 12.2.1.3.0 and you can easily align the configuration for the Traffic Director Instances and Configurations to your needs.
