Lenovo Next Generation Servers: Oracle Solutions For Mid-Market Customers

Lenovo is a leading server provider in key market segments such as retail, education, hospitality, and enterprise customers with distributed data centers. Many of these customers are running Oracle solutions on Lenovo deployments.  

In fact, through Oracle’s Hardware Certification Program, Lenovo’s full suite of rackmount systems, have been certified with Oracle Linux and Oracle VM, providing customers with the assurance that the Lenovo and Oracle combined solution is a proven one. Furthermore, through Oracle’s Validated Configuration Program, customers benefit from the reliability of pre-tested and validated architectures, currently featuring Lenovo’s ThinkServer RD640 and RD430, with Oracle’s red stack consisting of Oracle Linux, Oracle VM, Oracle Database and Oracle Fusion Middleware. 

In addition, this year’s Oracle OpenWorld offers a forum for Lenovo to announce some new and exciting news. Lenovo has been approved to move forward with the acquisition of IBM’s x86 server business, and other ancillary product lines. With this new acquisition, Lenovo will support Oracle Linux and Oracle VM on System x, BladeCenter and Flex System blade servers and switches, x86-based Flex integrated systems, NeXtScale and iDataPlex servers and associated software, blade networking and maintenance operations. 

Come hear about Lenovo’s next generation servers, storage solutions, and the value of running Oracle software on Lenovo’s family of ThinkServer systems in these Scene and BeHeard sessions.  Visit Lenovo at Moscone South, Booth 611, Kiosk: SLX-022.

Oracle RDBMS Server 11gR2 Pre-Install RPM for Oracle Linux 6 has been released

Now that the certification of the Oracle Database 11g R2 with Oracle Linux 6 and the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel has been announced, we are glad to announce the availability of oracle-rdbms-server-11gR2-preinstall, the Oracle RDBMS Server 11gR2 Pre-install RPM package (formerly known as oracle-validated). Designed specifically for Oracle Linux 6, this RPM aids in the installation of the Oracle Database.

In order to install the Oracle Database 11g R2 on Oracle Linux 6, your system needs to meet a few prerequisites, as outlined in the Linux Installation Guides. Using the Oracle RDBMS Server 11gR2 Pre-install RPM, you can complete most of the pre-installation configuration tasks. which is now available from the Unbreakable Linux Network, or via the Oracle public yum repository.

The pre-install package is available for x86_64 only. Specifically, the package:

  • Causes the download and installation of various software packages and specific versions needed for database installation, with package dependencies resolved via yum
  • Creates the user oracle and the groups oinstall and dba, which are the defaults used during database installation
  • Modifies kernel parameters in /etc/sysctl.conf to change settings for shared memory, semaphores, the maximum number of file descriptors, and so on
  • Sets hard and soft shell resource limits in /etc/security/limits.conf, such as the number of open files, the number of processes, and stack size to the minimum required based on the Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Server installation requirements
  • Sets numa=off in the kernel boot parameters for x86_64 machines
Please see the release announcement for further details and instructions. Also take a look at Ginny Henningsen's "How I Simplified Oracle Database Installation on Oracle Linux" article on the Oracle Technology Network for a general description on how to perform the installation of the Oracle Database on Oracle Linux. While the article refers to Oracle Linux 5 and the former "oracle-validated" package, the steps for Oracle Linux 6 are still very similar (we're looking into updating that article for Oracle Linux 6).
