    In my first post on WebLogic here here, I discussed about Weblogic installation using 32 bit of JDK so How to install 64 bit WebLogic on 64 bit Operating System (Linux/Unix) ?


    Install 64 bit WebLogic on 64 bit O.S (Unix/Linux)

    1. Download jar file wlsXXX_generic.jar from here under column “Additional Platform

    2. Install 64 bit of JDK on your Unix/Linux machine (steps below)

    3. Install WebLogic Server using 64 bit JDK with option -d64 and wlsXXX_generic.jar  like

    $JDK1.6/bin/java -d64 -jar wlsXXX_generic.jar  (-d64 flag is not required for Linux)


    How to install 64 bit JDK on Solaris Sparc ?

    Steps mentioned here are for 64 bit Solaris Sparc (If you are using Linux download 64 bit JDK for Linux)

    1. Download JDK 1.6 from here  and copy it to /tmp

    mkdir /usr/java/1.6
    cd /usr/java/1.6

    2. Install jdk-6u16-solaris-sparc.sh

    3. Install jdk-6u16-solaris-sparcv9.sh
    cd /usr/java/1.6

    4. Check JDK version
    bash-3.00# cd /usr/java/1.6/bin
    bash-3.00# ./java -d64 -version

    java version “1.6.0_16″
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_16-b01)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.2-b01, mixed mode)

      How can I install the generic distribution, the jar file, on Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit??

    5. rajkumarpatel says:

      In your install, I could not find the pre-requisites for the installation and this includes OS prerequisites as well pre-install steps. I could find the same in Oracle documentation too.

      Please provide some notes in brief w.r.t the above.


    6. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Raj,
      Weblogic server prereq are specific to weblogic version.

      Which version of weblogic you are installing ?

    7. rajkumarpatel says:

      HI Amit,
      Thanks for your reply. I have drilled down the problem to JDK. I was trying to setup OWLS 11g( on Solaris 10 (64-bit). Upon installation, it was looking for both 32 bit as well 64 bit JRE. After some googling, I realized that I need to install 32 bit jdk and then 64 bit jdk on top of it. After then, it was all like cakewalk.


    8. […] If you are installing WebLogic/IdM on 64 bit Machine and wish to use 64 bit JDK/JVM then first install 64 bit JDK and then user WebLogic jar file to install WebLogic using “64bitJDK/bin/java -d64 -jar weblogic_1033_software.jar“  . More information here […]

      Hi all,

      I have downloaded sun solaris 10(x86) from link http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/solaris/downloads/index.html?ssSourceSiteId=ocomen

      and installed same on server with intel xeon 64 bit processor.

      I had downloaded previously weblogic 9.2 setup (server923_solaris32.bin) which ran on other servers.

      When we try to run it using ./server923_solaris32.bin.
      , it gives error “cannot execute”

      We also checked there is no problem with file permission.

      I am suspecting that i have to install 32 bit JVM and after this I have to try.

      Please help.

    10. Atul Kumar says:

      @ vishal mestri

      Run uname -a and provide output

      What is permission on server923_solaris32.bin ?

    11. vishal mestri says:

      -bash-3.00$ uname -a
      SunOS idrsDB 5.10 Generic_142910-17 i86pc i386 i86pc

    12. Atul Kumar says:

      @ vishal mestri

      and what is permission on server923_solaris32.bin

      ls -l server923_solaris32.bin

    13. vishal mestri says:

      it has got all permissions….
      Issue which I am facing is due to below mentioned reason:-

      There are two types of solaris os available
      1. for sparc h/w
      2. for x86

      Our machine is x86 , thus I have downloaded solaris os x86 setup.

      Weblogic 9.2 setup is available for below mentioned :
      1) Windows(32 bit jvm)
      2) Linux(32 bit jvm)
      3) Solaris (but for SPARC)

      Currently there is no weblogic setup is available for solaris x86 os setup.

      Even I tried to run linux setup file on solaris 10 x86 machine.

      But it gave me error…some linux module is not present….

      I donot think there is any solution to this problem….i.e. installing weblogic 9.2 on solaris 10 x86 os….

    14. Atul Kumar says:

      @ vishal mestri,
      Thanks for highlighting this . Yes, I completely missed that. I don’t think weblogic is certified on Solaris X86.

      Thanks in Advance

    16. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Lokanath,

      Q. When does oracle_common direcory created under MW_HOME?
      A. This is created when you install any fusion middleware product like SOA, WebCenter, Identity Management (OID, OVD, OIF, OAM, OIM ..)

      oarcle_common hosts JRF run time library files and application like Fusion Middleware control (/em)

      Q. I did not see when in installed weblogic server( java -d64 -jar wls1033_generic ).

      A. Check answer above to see how to get oracle_common

      Thanks Atul for all the help you are doing to the beginners.

    23. Atul Kumar says:

      @ Bharat,
      You should first install JDK 1.6 patch 24 or higher for SunOS 64 bit and then use jar file to install weblogic

      You mentioned that “here the java bundle path is not selecting manually and because of this while installing our Application it is not choosing the Java path both default and Choose methods”

      could you please explain this, I am not sure what do you mean by above statement

    24. Bharat says:

      Hi Atul,
      I have downloaded the jdk-6u29-solaris-x64.sh and installed the same on the solaris x86 environment but when i login and see the bin folder it showing only amd64 folder.

      where it cannot load the library files as it should. any idea what wrong Atul?


    26. Atul Kumar says:

      @ wiyan,
      Is this standard weblogic with no application deployed or issue is after deploying aplication ?

      If this issue is after deploying application share what application did you deploy on this weblogic

    27. wiyan says:

      We actually deploy a JAVA web based application in weblogic. it will point to a wwwroot files for deploying. before we used 32-bit weblogic and it works but with 64-bit seems to have this error in the logs. when we open the page, all the icons, background colors gone. we can only view text with white colored background.
      hope this explained. please do tell me if you need more info.
