3.1 Installation Overview

If you have a subscription to Oracle Unbreakable Linux support, you can obtain the packages for Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 4 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 Linux yum server. See Section 3.3, “Enabling Access to Oracle Linux Yum Server Channels”.

Having subscribed your system to the appropriate channels on ULN or Oracle Linux yum server, upgrade your system. See Section 3.4, “Upgrading Your System”.

After upgrading to UEK R4, you can replace any existing OFED packages with the Oracle-supported OFED packages, see Section 3.5, “Installing the Oracle-Supported OFED Packages”.
