You can use DCLI to simplify the installation of Oracle R Enterprise on Exadata.
With DCLI, you can use a single command to install Oracle R Distribution and Oracle R Enterprise Server across multiple Exadata compute nodes. The following example shows the output of the DCLI help option, which explains the basic syntax of the utility.
For more details about DCLI, go to the My Oracle Support website, log in with your Customer Support Identifier, and type

Example 5-1 DCLI Help Option Output
$ dcli -h Distributed Shell for Oracle Storage This script executes commands on multiple cells in parallel threads. The cells are referenced by their domain name or ip address. Local files can be copied to cells and executed on cells. This tool does not support interactive sessions with host applications. Use of this tool assumes ssh is running on local host and cells. The -k option should be used initially to perform key exchange with cells. User may be prompted to acknowledge cell authenticity, and may be prompted for the remote user password. This -k step is serialized to prevent overlayed prompts. After -k option is used once, then subsequent commands to the same cells do not require -k and will not require passwords for that user from the host. Command output (stdout and stderr) is collected and displayed after the copy and command execution has finished on all cells. Options allow this command output to be abbreviated. Return values: 0 -- file or command was copied and executed successfully on all cells 1 -- one or more cells could not be reached or remote execution returned non-zero status. 2 -- An error prevented any command execution Examples: dcli -g mycells -k dcli -c stsd2s2,stsd2s3 vmstat dcli -g mycells cellcli -e alter iormplan active dcli -g mycells -x reConfig.scl usage: dcli [options] [command] options: --version show program's version number and exit -c CELLS comma-separated list of cells -d DESTFILE destination directory or file -f FILE file to be copied -g GROUPFILE file containing list of cells -h, --help show help message and exit -k push ssh key to cell's authorized_keys file -l USERID user to login as on remote cells (default: celladmin) -n abbreviate non-error output -r REGEXP abbreviate output lines matching a regular expression -s SSHOPTIONS string of options passed through to ssh --scp=SCPOPTIONS string of options passed through to scp if different from sshoptions --serial serialize execution over the cells -t list target cells --unkey drop keys from target cells' authorized_keys file -v print extra messages to stdout --vmstat=VMSTATOPS vmstat command options -x EXECFILE file to be copied and executed
