This chapter provides a checklist of tasks to deploy bare metal Oracle software after Oracle Database Appliance has been rack mounted and cabled. Configuring Oracle Database Appliance software requires approximately one hour to complete. This chapter contains the following sections, each of which must be completed before proceeding to the next:
Note:For a checklist of tasks to deploy Oracle software on a virtualized Oracle Database Appliance, see Chapter 4, "Deploying Oracle Software on Oracle Database Appliance Virtualized Platform."

You must install the End-User Bundle on your Oracle Database Appliance before you can deploy any other software. This requires downloading the bundle to an external client and copying it as described in the following steps.
From an external client machine, log on to My Oracle Support and access note 888888.1 at:
Copy the End-User Bundle image to a location on Oracle Database Appliance (for example, the
/tmp directory) using an
For example, if you have set up a static IP address with the host name
oda_host, and configured Oracle Database Appliance with that address using
oakcli configure firstnet, then navigate to the folder on your client where you have downloaded the End-User Bundle image, and enter a secure copy command (
scp) similar to the following to perform the transfer:
scp p12978712_27000_Linux-x86-64.zip root@oda_host:/tmp
Note:Do not use a
namethat is longer than 13 characters. Although the total length of
namecan be 15 characters, Oracle Appliance Manager appends two additional characters to the
namethat you provide. Additionally, Oracle recommends that you use all lower-case characters for
Alternatively, you can place the End-User Bundle image onto a USB storage device and perform the oakcli unpack command from that location once the USB device is visible on the appliance.
Note:Format any USB drives as FAT32, ext3, or ext4. NTFS file formats are not supported.
Change the directory to
Use the command syntax
oakcli unpack -package /
package_name to unpack the Oracle Database Appliance software, where
directory_path is the path where the End-User Bundle image is located.
For example, if the End-User Bundle image files are in
/tmp, then enter the following command to unpack
# ./oakcli unpack -package /tmp/p16760967_27000_Linux-x86-64.zip
This command unpacks the files, and places them in the location required for deployment.
Note:You can use the same configuration procedures described in this section to copy a configuration file, which you may need when completing steps in Deploying Your Configuration on Oracle Database Appliance.
If you created a configuration file on an external host, as described in Chapter 2, and you want to deploy the configuration on your Oracle Database Appliance, then you must copy the file to Oracle Database Appliance using a command similar to the
scp command used in Step 3.
To deploy the configuration of Oracle Database Appliance, you can use an existing configuration file or create the configuration in real time. First, log into Node 0 of Oracle Database Appliance as the
root user, password
welcome1, and change directory to
/opt/oracle/oak/bin. Run the command
startx to ready the X Window System for Oracle Appliance Manager Configurator, or, if you have connected using VNC, then you can start the Configurator directly from your command prompt.
To initiate the deployment using an existing configuration file, enter a command similar to the following:
Substitute the full path name to the directory containing your configuration file if you did not save the file in
/tmp; and substitute your configuration file name if you did not use the default name,
onecommand.param. This command will work with a configuration file that you have copied from an external host or that you created on Oracle Database Appliance.
Note:Do not use a configuration file created for an earlier version of Oracle Appliance Manager Configurator. If you do not have a current configuration file, then complete a real time configuration and deployment as described in the following step.
To initiate a real time configuration and deployment, enter the following command:
# ./oakcli deploy
and follow the instructions in Chapter 2 to complete Oracle Appliance Manager Configurator screens. Select the Install option on the Summary screen to complete the deployment.
When the deployment is complete on both nodes, you will see the message
Oracle Database Appliance Deployment successful.
