An Oracle Fusion Applications environment requires a transaction database. You can install a single-instance Oracle Database Enterprise Edition by using the Provisioning Wizard, or you can install Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC) by using the standard installation instructions. The database templates shipped with Oracle Fusion Applications describe the structure and features of the database, but do not contain any data. You can place the Transaction database either on IdM database server host or Fusion Applications node, however, it is strongly recommended to separate it from other components. We will install the database using Provisioning Wizard since it also automatically applies all the required patches.
