OAAM 11g RCU Fails for Oracle Database Standard Edition During the Install Check (Doc ID 1378240.1)

Last updated on JUNE 07, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Adaptive Access Manager - Version 11.1.1.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

When attempting to use the Oracle Fusion Middleware Repository Creation Tool 11.1.1.5 to create the
OAAM schema (without partition support), it results in a statement that the Oracle Database Enterprise
Edition is required. However, per the Oracle Fusion Middleware Interoperability and Compatibility Guide
(http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E17904_01/doc.1111/e17836/overview.htm) section 1.3.1 it states;

Until recently, the Enterprise Edition was the only version of the Oracle database that Oracle Adaptive
Access Manager (OAAM) supported. While the Enterprise Edition is still the recommended database version
for use with OAAM, some users may now use the Standard Edition if appropriate.

Customers who are considering using Oracle Database Standard Edition with OAAM must be able to answer
'Yes' to each of the following questions:

Can your business and IT owners accept production downtime for regular database maintenance? SE has
no Online Index Rebuild feature.

Does your deployment utilize a single data center? SE does not provide Streams or DataGuard for fail-over.

Does your deployment have traffic volumes with less than 200K logins and transactions per day total? SE
does not support Partitioning.

If you answered 'Yes' to all three questions above, Oracle will support you using Oracle Database Standard
Edition with OAAM."
