UCM: Installation of UCM 11g

The effectiveness and benefits of UCM are shown daily in the interest of customers and partners who choose to implement records management in their information systems. Oracle understands this and for this reason continues promoting its product Oracle Universal Content Management (UCM) and the entire Enterprise Content Management (ECM) suite to provide solutions.
Since April 2010, the new version 11g has been released offering more potential than the previous version and has made improvements such as running on the upper layers of the WebLogic application server.

To introduce in the new version, you can see the installation tutorial of UCM 11g:

ECM Suite and RCU utility
Weblogic Server

Oracle's oficial documentation for ECM 11g
Quick installation guide for UCM 11g

Note: This guide has been installed in a Oracle Enterprise Linux operating system. It can change some step if you are installing on a Windows operating system.

Note: This tutorial assumes that there is an installed Database running on the system. It would be necessary of any supported database to continue with the tutorial.

1) Preparing the Database
1.1) Download and extract the Repository Creation Utility from the downloads section
1.2) Execute .../rcuHome/bin/rcu
1.3) An assistant guide will appear and will create the required schemas on the database depending of the selected installation product

2) Installation of the Weblogic Application Server
2.1) Once the shcema is created, download and extract the Weblogic Server installer
2.2) Launch the installer .../wls1033_linux32.bin
2.3) Follow the installation assistant

3) Installation of the Fusion Middleware ECM Suite
3.1) With the prepared database and the Weblogic Server installed, the next step is the installation of ECM Suite 11g where, in this case, this tutorial will install only Oracle UCM 11g. Download and extract the ECM Suite
3.2) Execute .../Disk1/runInstaller
3.3) Follow the installation assistant

4) Creating a Weblogic domain
4.1) Once all the software is ready, now you must create a Weblogic domain for UCM
4.2) Execute ./"ECM_ORACLE_HOME"/common/bin/config.sh
4.3) Follow the installer assistant
4.4) Optimize the JAVA configuration using the command:

export USER_MEM_ARGS="-Xms256m -Xmx1024m -XX:CompileThreshold=8000 -XX:PermSize=128m -XX:MaxPermSize=1024m"

5) Start UCM 11g

  6. Jojo,
    Your problem is in the login, please verify all your usernames and passwords. Also remember that all the components have to be running (DB+Weblogic).
    Please, also verify that the Database XE is supported in the certification matrix!

  7. Are there any troubleshooting and performance tuning docs
    and how do i download

  8. Are there any books that will help me to gain more knowledge and experience
