WebLogic Server 11g installer needs 1091 MB of temp space

When installing the generic version (or any other version) of Oracle WebLogic Server 11g, the installer typically is executed with a command similar to the following:
java -d64 -jar /u01/share/install_software/wls1035_generic.jar
The wls1035_generic.jar file is 1070 MB in size.

When this command is executed, the JAR file is extracted to a temporary file which is automatically cleaned up after installation. However, this temporary file requires 1091 MB in space!

This file has a filename similar to the following: bea4592663929119900781.tmp

So if you are executing the WebLogic Server 11g installer, consider using the argument to define the temporary directory. Just make sure that it has enough disk space.
java -d64 – -jar /u01/share/install_software/wls1035_generic.jar

Applicable Versions
  • Oracle WebLogic Server 11g (10.3.5)
