3.2 Installing Ksplice Uptrack Within the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

If you are an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure customer, you can use Ksplice on any of the Oracle Linux systems that are hosted in your cloud environment. You do not need to register through ULN to use Ksplice. Any system that runs inside of the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure has automatic access to the Ksplice servers and all of the Ksplice updates.

To install Ksplice Uptrack on a system running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure:

  1. Log in as the root user on the system.

  2. If you use an Internet proxy, configure the HTTP and HTTPS settings for the proxy in the shell.

    • For the sh, ksh, or bash shells, use commands such as the following:

      # http_proxy=http://proxy_URL:http_port
      # https_proxy=http://proxy_URL:https_port
      # export http_proxy https_proxy

      For the csh shell, use commands such as the following:

      # setenv http_proxy=http://proxy_URL:http_port
      # setenv https_proxy=http://proxy_URL:https_port
  3. Download the Ksplice installer for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure:

    # wget -N https://www.ksplice.com/uptrack/install-uptrack-oc
  4. Run the installer script.

    To enable the automatic installation of updates:

    # sh install-uptrack-oc --autoinstall

    If you do not want Ksplice to automatically install updates, run the script without the command-line switch:

    # sh install-uptrack-oc
