unzip in C:\Progressx86\rollbase_new\rollbase

unzip in C:\Progressx86\rollbase_new\lib

unzip in C:\Progressx86\rollbase_new\webapps

Copy all the files from C:\Progressx86\rollbase_new\lib to C:\Progressx86\Tomcat\lib

Copy all the files from C:\Progressx86\rollbase_new\webapps to C:\Progressx86\Tomcat\webapps

4. Set environmental varialbes for

Hi Shilpi,

The script that you should be running is located under below folder structure:


You can run the create DB file by following below doc url :

and as you said, you would need to edit the database.xml by enabling only "Oracle" part of this file and setting isDefault="yes" isExternal="no".

Is this what you are looking for?

No Mani.. My question is -- From Where  do i need to execute create_ora.sql script? Means When I install rollbase private cloud with open edge database then

I open proenv utility

and then navigate to C:\Progressx86\rollbase_new\rollbase\sql

write create_oedb.bat and press enter..

So this creates a openedge database. for rollbase

edit database.xml by enable only "OpenEdgedatabase" part.. This is ok,,

But when I open sql command line of oracle, and follow the same steps and write create_ora.sql then  it appears "Not Connected". means Oracle databse is not created.. 

Please suggest.. It is very urgent.

Hi Shilpi -

As far as I know, you should be able to do this easily using the sql developer that comes in bundled with oracle. Launch it and connect to your database with the admin (sys/sysadmin) credentials. Now, create a new user by setting username and password. Now, login to sql developer on the same db with the newly created user credentials and try running the create_ora.sql on the query editor. It should create the rb schema. You can then configure database.xml to run against the oracle schema with these user credentials.

Thanks Manoj..

One more question is Do i need to install Oracle 11.2G version as mentioned in or would Oracle 11g also work for the installation of rollbase?  Please suggest.

Can we install rollbase with Oracle 11g databse or rollbase is rigid with the version of oracle 11.2 G?  I mean to say, If i installed Oracle 11g on my system, would I be able to install Rollbase with this oracle version or not?

We have certified  Rollbase on Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release - 64bit Production. It works successfully..
