4.2 ASR Prerequisites

Before you install ASR, make sure that the prerequisites in this section are met.

Verifying ASR Prerequisites

  1. Make sure that you have a valid My Oracle Support account.

    If necessary, create an account at https://support.oracle.com.

  2. Ensure that the following are set up correctly in My Oracle Support:

    • technical contact person at the customer site who is responsible for Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance

    • valid shipping address at the customer site where the Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance is located, so that parts are delivered to the site where they must be installed

  3. Make sure that Oracle Java - JDK 7 (1.7.0_13 or later) is installed on both management nodes in your Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance. Check the version installed on the system by entering the following command at the Oracle Linux prompt: java -version.


    OpenJDK is not supported by ASR.

    If the installed version does not comply with the ASR prerequisites, download and install the version of JDK included in the Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance Release 1.1 software image. Unpack the Oracle Java - JDK 7 archive in /opt/. Repeat this on the other management node.

    # cd /opt/
    # tar zxvf /nfs/shared_storage/mgmt_image/Server/jdk-7u51-linux-x64.tar.gz

    Alternatively, you can download the latest version from the Java SE Downloads page: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/.


    Each ASR version is configured to use a particular version of Java. Verify the Java prerequisites whenever you install a new version of ASR. Do not set the newly installed JDK as the system default Java, because that may cause other components to malfunction.

  4. Verify connectivity to the Internet using HTTPS.

    For example, try curl to test whether you can access https://support.oracle.com.
