3.2.1 About the Unbreakable Linux Network

You have the option of registering a system with ULN when you install Oracle Linux 6 on a system. To register with ULN after installation, use the uln_register command.

To obtain Oracle Linux updates from ULN, you must have an Oracle Linux support subscription. For more information about ULN, see

During ULN registration, your server is automatically registered with the latest channels for the base repository and the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 2. If you have upgraded your system from a previous release and do not want to install UEK Release 2, you must manually unsubscribe the server from this channel.

ULN also provides channels for Oracle-specific software packages such as Oracle's ASMlib userspace package and the Oracle Instant Client. To enable access to these packages, log in to ULN and subscribe your system to the Oracle Software channel.
