3.1 Installation Overview

If you have a subscription to Oracle Unbreakable Linux support, you can obtain the packages for Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 3 by registering your system with the Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN) and subscribing it to additional channels. See Section 3.2, “Subscribing to ULN Channels”.

If your system is not registered with ULN, you can obtain most of the packages from Oracle Yum Server. See Section 3.3, “Enabling Access to Oracle Yum Server Channels”.

If you have previously installed any OFED packages on your system, and you want to replace these with the latest packages that are provided on the ol6_x86_64_ofed_UEK channel, you must manually remove some of the existing packages. See Section 3.4, “Upgrading OFED Packages”.

Having subscribed your system to the appropriate channels on ULN or Oracle Yum Server, upgrade your system. See Section 3.5, “Upgrading Your System”.
