Install Oracle Linux x64
Nothing special there. The following configuration works fine.
- just disabled Unbreakable Linux setup during the installation process
- setup a Development platform
- the system must be a fully qualified one
- enable the yum repository and download and install the Oracle Linux 5 repo file to your system.
# cd /etc/yum.repos.d # wget http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-el5.repo
Enable both the
[ol5_u5_base]repositories in the yum configuration file by changing
enable=1in those sections.
Install Oracle WLS 10.3.2
Nothing special there. Just apply the patch WDJ7 on top of the standard setup.
Install Oracle DataBase 11g ( Release 2 )
Nothing special there. Btw you may execute a couple of pre-configuration steps according to the system setup of your Oracle Enterprise Linux.
OS-KERNEL systems parameters
|Parameter||current value||required value|
For these modifications you have to execute some provided scripts as root when the installation process asks for it. Generally speaking, proceed as follow
- open a terminal
- login as root
- run the scripts
- continue with the setup
Extra required packages
At least, the following packages are required for this installation :
Missing packages will be listed.
# yum install <package-name>
Post Oracle DB configuration : DB Control SYSMAN schema
a) DB Control SYSMAN schema is created in the database, as a part of the database install. User has to deconfigure it, else while doing the Grid control install it will prompt you to remove the dbconsole .
- Set the environment variable:
# export ORACLE_HOME=<oracle-install-dir>/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1
# export ORACLE_SID=orcl
- Run the following command as user oracle:
# cd <oracle-install-dir>oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1/bin
# ./emca -deconfig dbcontrol db -repos drop
- Provide the following input parameters:
- SID = orcl
- Listener port = 1521
- Password for SYS = Betadb2010
- Password for SYSMAN = Betadb2010
- Do you wish to continue (Y/N) = Y
b) Log into the sqlplus as SYSMAN user : ./sqlplus “/as sysdba”
- Run the following SQL
# sqlplus "/ as sysdba"
alter database datafile '<oracle-install-dir>/oradata/orcl/undotbs01.dbf' resize 200M;
Note: Grid control requires 200Mb of space in undo tablespace.
EnterpriseManager 11g Release1 Control Grid
Nothing special there. Just follow the installation procedure and create a brand new Enterprise Manager system.
Btw you may execute a couple of pre-configuration steps for the Oracle DataBase according to the system setup such as processes, session_cached_cursors and most probably some others
# sqlplus "/ as sysdba"
alter system set process=<value> scope=SPFILE;
