Thanks for sharing 🙂 Sanchit December 4, 2016 at 10:47 AM - Reply Very nice tutorial. thanks fro sharing your knowledge Suresh December 8, 2016 at 9:36 PM - Reply Thanks for providing the source on the youtube channel for the Oracle tutorials. I am new to Oracle WCC implementation and would like to some details. I watched one of your videos in youtube “How to install and configure Oracle Webcenter Content 12c – 12.2.1” channel and like it. I am working on an architecture for an application and would like to get your opinion and thoughts. As I see it for Oracle WCC, based on your video there is no mention of need for Web Server. Do we need a Web Server if so for what purpose? Can’t we make a webservice call to the WCC content hosted on Web Logic server? What are the prerequisites for implementing a WCC with a custom solution (.net project) on top it? I need your help, could you please drop me an e-mail at suresh dot vayugundla at gmail Thanks, Suresh Jason January 17, 2017 at 11:55 PM - Reply Hi. Very good installation steps provided! Can i ask what is the benefit we split the cluster for each different managed server? Thanks! Joanne November 3, 2017 at 9:21 PM - Reply Concise and to the point! Your video and tutorial material are always so organized and relatively easy to follow! Two Thumbs Up!!! Joanne October 4, 2018 at 1:56 AM - Reply Fabulous Instructions – As Always!!! Two Thumbs UP!

Make sure you see below lines in the nohup.out / AdminServer.log to confirm that the AdminServer is fully started Leave A Comment Cancel reply Comment Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
