- Use Image Oracle-Provisioned OS Image – Oracle Linux 7.4
- Make sure all these you are deploying in the same Compartment and VCN which you have created for EBS.

This has Oracle E-Business Suite on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Automation Archive 18.2.1. You need to untar the file EBSCloudAdminTools_v18.1.2.tgz.
