Using Remote Installer Install Staging/ Production or to Add A Runtime Or WorkClient Instance To Existing Search Configurations (Doc ID 1622499.1)

Last updated on MARCH 12, 2021

Oracle Knowledge - Version and later

Typically after the installation of Oracle Knowledge Search, the required instances (Scheduler, Runtimes and WorkClients) are created in order to establish the necessary environment. This can be done using the Install program or the remote installer.  The Install program will create the directory structure and install the code for a particular install and install the components you would like in that particular install.  If the install is distributed over several different machines, then you can use the installer to just create the directory structure and lay down the code, and use the createApp and remoteInstaller to create the instances and a unified xml.  The only way to create a unified xml for the search instances is to use the createApp and the remoteInstaller to create them all at once.  If additional instances are added then the procedure here is used to merge the new instance xml to the existing xml.

This article provides an overview of the procedures that can be employed to extend an existing Oracle Knowledge Search environment.


The successful extention of an existing Search environment will require the manual modification of key xml configuration files that tie an Oracle Knowledge environment together so familiarity with installation.xml and env.xml files is essential.

It is also possible that some configuration changes will be necessary for the WebLogic Managed Servers within which the Search webapps are deployed so an understanding of WebLogic administration and configuration is required.

Customers who are uncertain of these areas are encouraged to test the procedures discussed within a Development environment to gain familiarity. They should also consider engaging Oracle Consultancy Services to assist them.
