3.1 Preinstallation Considerations → completing the tasks listed in Chapter 2, \"Oracle Database Preinstallation Requirements\", consider the following case:
2 Oracle Database Preinstallation Requirements → Preinstallation Requirements for Oracle Configuration Manager Checking the Network Setup Creating
2.4 Preinstallation Requirements for Oracle Configuration Manager → During the installation, you are prompted to provide information required to enable Oracle Configuration Manager. When you create a service request with Oracle Support, the configuration information can help to provide a rapid resolution to the service issue. You can enable Oracle Configuration Manager during or after installation. To enable it during the installation, you must have the following
2 Oracle Database Preinstallation Requirements → Database Software Requirements Preinstallation Requirements for Oracle Configuration Manager … Preinstallation Tasks for Oracle Application Express Windows Certification and Web Browser Support Oracle Database Network Topics Individual Component Requirements
2.1 Logging In to the System as root → Before you install the Oracle software, you must complete several tasks as the root user. To log in as the root user, complete one of the following procedures: Note: Unless you intend to complete a silent-mode installation, you must install the software from an X Window System workstation, an X terminal, or a PC or other system with X server software installed. For more information about silent-mode
2.3.5 Additional Software Requirements → Depending on the components you want to use, you must ensure that the following software are installed: Oracle ODBC Drivers Oracle JDBC/OCI Drivers Oracle Messaging Gateway Browser Requirements Oracle XML DB for Oracle Application Express PL/SQL Web Toolkit Oracle Text 184.108.40.206 Oracle ODBC Drivers If you intend to use ODBC, then you should install the most recent ODBC Driver Manager for Linux. You
2.9 Identifying Required Software Directories → You must identify or create the following directories for the Oracle software: Oracle Base Directory Oracle Inventory Directory Oracle Home Directory
2.10.1 Identifying an Existing Oracle Base Directory → Existing Oracle base directories may not have paths that comply with OFA (Optimal Flexible Architecture) guidelines. However, if you identify an existing Oracle Inventory directory or existing Oracle home directories, then you can usually identify the Oracle base directories, as follows: Identifying an existing Oracle Inventory directory. Refer to Creating the Oracle Inventory Group for more information.
2.13.2 Step 1: Identifying Storage Requirements for Automatic Storage Management → Identify the storage requirements of the site. Optionally, use an existing Automatic Storage Management disk group. If you are creating an Automatic Storage Management disk group, create partitions for DAS or SAN disks. Use one of the following methods to complete the Automatic Storage Management configuration: If you plan to install Oracle Database using interactive mode, Oracle Universal Installer
2.14.1 Example of Creating a Udev Permissions File for Oracle Database → The procedure to create a permissions file to grant oinstall group members write privileges to block devices is as follows: Log in as root. Change to the /etc/udev/permissions.d directory: # cd /etc/udev/permissions.d Start a text editor, such as vi, and enter the partition information where you want to place the data files and voting disk files, using the syntax device [ partitions ]:root:oinstall:0640.
2.3.2 Kernel Requirements → The following are the Kernel requirements for Oracle Database 11 g Release 1: On Asianux 2, Oracle Linux 4, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4: 2.6.9 or later On Asianux 3, Oracle Linux 5, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5: 2.6.18 or later On SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10: 220.127.116.11 or later To determine whether the required kernel is installed, enter the following command: # uname -r The following is
2.3.3 Package Requirements → The following are the list of packages required for Oracle Database 11 g Release 1. Note: Oracle recommends that you install your Linux operating system with the default software packages (RPMs), unless you specifically intend to perform a minimal installation, and follow the directions for performing such an installation to ensure that you have all required packages for Oracle software. Oracle recommends
2.5.4 Installing on Computers with Multiple Aliases → A computer with multiple aliases is registered with the naming service under a single IP but with multiple aliases. The naming service resolves any of those aliases to the same computer. Before installing Oracle Database on such a computer, set the ORACLE_HOSTNAME environment variable to the computer whose host name you want to use.
2.13.4 Step 3: Creating DAS or SAN Disk Partitions for Automatic Storage Management → In order to use a DAS or SAN disk in Automatic Storage Management, the disk must have a partition table. Oracle recommends creating exactly one partition for each disk containing the entire disk. Note: Y ou can use any physical disk for Automatic Storage Management, as long as it is partitioned.
2.16 Configuring the oracle User's Environment → You run Oracle Universal Installer from the oracle account. However, before you start Oracle Universal Installer you must configure the environment of the oracle user. To configure the environment, you must: Set the default file mode creation mask ( umask ) to 022 in the shell startup file. Set the DISPLAY environment variable. To set the oracle user's environment: Start a new terminal session, for
2.3.4 Compiler Requirements → Intel C++ Compiler 9.1 or later and the version of GNU C and C++ compilers listed under \"Package Requirements\" are supported with Pro*C/C++, Oracle Call Interface, Oracle C++ Call Interface, and Oracle XML Developer's Kit (XDK) for Oracle Database 11 g Release 1. Starting with Oracle Database 11 g release 1 (18.104.22.168), Pro*COBOL is certified on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server
2.5 Checking the Network Setup → Typically, the computer on which you want to install Oracle Database is connected to the network. The computer has local storage, to store the Oracle Database installation. It also contains a display monitor, and DVD drive. This section describes how to install Oracle Database on computers that do not meet the typical scenario. It covers the following cases: Configuring Name Resolution Installing
2.6.1 Creating the Oracle Inventory Group → Log in as root, and use the following instructions to locate or create the Oracle Inventory group and a software owner: Determining Whether the Oracle Inventory Group Exists Creating the Oracle Inventory Group Determining Whether the Oracle Inventory Group Exists When you install Oracle software on the system for the first time, Oracle Universal Installer creates the oraInst.loc file. This file identifies
2.6.3 Creating an OSOPER Group (Optional) → Create an OSOPER group only if you want to identify a group of operating system users with a limited set of database administrative privileges ( SYSOPER operator privileges). For most installations, it is sufficient to create only the OSDBA group. If you want to use an OSOPER group, then you must create it in the following circumstances: If an OSOPER group does not exist, for example, if this is the
2.9.1 Oracle Base Directory → The Oracle base directory is a top-level directory for Oracle software installations. On Linux systems, the Optimal Flexible Architecture (OFA) guidelines recommend that you use a path similar to the following for the Oracle base directory: /mount_point/app/oracle_sw_owner In this example: mount_point is the mount point directory for the file system that will contain the Oracle software. The examples
