Problem


I had INST-07548, INST-07551 and jrf_wlsFmw problem during installation of Oracle Service Bus 12.2.1.3.0 (V886445-01).

Reason

Problem is in buggy installer which doesn’t find required item in existing Oracle Weblogic installation. It is like that when you select Skip Auto Updates in Auto Updates installer step.

Solution

Workaround is trivial. You need to patch it. To do so you need to move back to Auto Updates step and change default Skip Auto Updates option to Search My Oracle Support for Updates where you have to provide your Oracle support credentials.

Search My Oracle Support for Updates option at Auto Update step during Oracle software installation
Search My Oracle Support for Updates option at Auto Update step during Oracle software installation

It should result in proposal of below patches to apply:

  • 22786409 – 13.9.3 PREFLIGHT ON FMW 12.2.1.3.1
  • 22058967 – ASINT PATCH FOR LOGS
Patches to apply 22786409 – 13.9.3 PREFLIGHT ON FMW 12.2.1.3.1 and 22058967 – ASINT PATCH FOR LOGS

It will offer to apply it on currently running installer and restart it. After you agree it runs correctly and now you can select Skip Auto Updates.
