Install the Operating System Using the ISO image

Follow this procedure to install the Oracle Linux operating system and all the necessary software to establish connections outbound from the Gateway to Oracle through Data Transport Services (DTS), and inbound from Oracle to the Gateway through Oracle Continuous Connection Network (OCCN) VPN connectivity. The steps are the same for a server or virtual machine, so the term "server" is used to represent both options in the following instructions.

To complete the ISO installation, follow these steps:

Before You Begin

Back up your data before re-initializing the disks.


Caution  -  Possible data loss. Make sure to backup any data currently on the disks before re-initializing the disks.

  1. Boot the server with the ISO image.

    Note -  You cannot boot the server in UEFI boot mode. In order to boot the server, switch from UEFI boot mode to Legacy BIOS boot mode.

    A screen similar to the one shown below appears.

    Note -  If you require a split storage configuration as outlined on the following screen, please refer to your Oracle representative or to Oracle Support to facilitate this arrangement.

  2. To start the installation process, choose the second option, Install Gateway.

    The installation process takes a few minutes to complete.

    If the disk(s) in your system have never been initialized (which is common when using virtualization), you will see a warning message like the one below during the install process.

  3. In this case, choose the Re-initialize all option to proceed with the installation.

    When the installation is complete, a screen similar to the following appears.

  4. Before rebooting the server, eject or unmount the install media so that the server boots the newly installed operating system.
  5. Press Enter to reboot the server.
  6. Once the server has rebooted, proceed to the Gateway configuration in the following section.
