I recently installed Oracle UCM on my windows XP Laptop and thought it would be worthwhile writing Instructions for others. So here goes... Installing Stellent or Oracle Universal Content Management See Introduction to Oracle Universal Content Management or Stellent Pre-Installation Requirements Server satisfies Hardware rqeuirements (mostly at least 1 GB RAM and more than 2 GB free HD space.) Have Oracle Database Installed and running on your server and you have sysdba access. Have IIS or Apache or Tomcat running as webserver. UCM may work with other webservers too, but i am yet to come across other than these. Download Oracle Universal Content Management Goto UCM download page at oracle OTN website. Accept the license agreement. There are basically 6 all inclusive zip files to download from here which will include everything you may require (except some rare components). These are Oracle Content Server 10gR3 (10.1.3.3.3) Oracle Content Server Document Management 10gR3 (10.1.3.3.5) Oracle Universal Content Management Web Content Management 10gR3 (10.1.3.3.4) Oracle Universal Content Management Document Management 10gR3 (10.1.3.3.4) Oracle Universal Content Management Records Management 10gR3 (10.1.3.3.3) Oracle Universal Content Management Digital Asset Managment and Conversion 10gR3 (10.1.3.3.2) Of these, if you are not planning to run a website, or for Digital asset management then you may just need to download the first two. Installing Oracle Universal Content Management Unzip Content Server 10gR3 (10.1.3.3.3) (The current version zip file is V13682-01.zip) to a temporary location, say D:\V13682-01 First we will need to create a User Schema in the database for UCM to connect to. I am using cmd to connect with sqlplus as sysdba and create the tablepaces. Note that my Oracle SID is HOME and Oracle is installed in D:\oracle. Replace the paths and SID with your own. Code (Text): C:\>sqlplus SQL*Plus: Release 10.2.0.1.0 - Production on Tue Oct 28 12:39:26 2008 Copyright (c) 1982, 2005, Oracle. All rights reserved.

Note that UCM installer is a command line installer and there is no GUI. Installation Steps Note: The installer will keep asking you questions and you have to select from the options provided. In most case by just pressing Enter you can select the Default option. When the installation is finished, check the D:\UCM\install\log.txt file for errors Configuring Apache If you were using Apache webserver, the httpd.conf needs to be configured # Find your httpd.conf file of Apache server (Ex. C:\xampp\apache\conf) and enter the following lines at the end: (Note the paths need to be changed with your UCM installation path) Code (Text): LoadModule IdcApacheAuth "D:\UCM\shared\os\win32\lib\IdcApache22Auth.dll" IdcUserDB idc "D:/UCM/data/users/userdb.txt" Alias /idc "D:\UCM\weblayout/" <Location /idc> Order allow,deny Allow from all DirectoryIndex portal.htm IdcSecurity idc </Location> Ok we are DONE!!! just check if the oracle database services and IDC Content Admin Service idc_admin and IDC Content Service idc are running. Now type in your browser url: http://user.company.com/idc or http://localhost/idc BINGO! You should see the UCM Login Page! Enter the default username and password username : sysadmin password : idc And you are ready to roll!
