how to restart the failed APPS R12 installation

Objective:
In this post we will show how can we restart the failed APPS R12 installation.

Cookbook:
The installation can fail becuase of any reason, e.g. system hang, system restart etc. In any of the case we can restart the installation from the same point where it got failed.

Following are the points.

1- start the rapidwiz with the option "-restart"

./rapidwiz -restart

2- it will open the install screen and will as the saved configuration file. Here is the catch, the saved configuration file can be found on two places.

a- /tmp/MMDDHHMI/conf_SID.txt

b- $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/conf_SID.txt

3- once you choose the right saved configuration file, the installer will start from the same point where it got failed.
