EBS R12 Pre-Install RPM Available for Oracle Linux 5 and 6

Tux logoThe Linux Pre-Install RPM for Oracle E-Business Suite R12 on Oracle Linux 5 and 6 is now available for use by customers.

The package (oracle-ebs-server-R12-preinstall) is available on the 'addons' channel on Oracle Unbreakable Linux Network (ULN, which requires a support contract) or from the Oracle public yum repository. It is recommended that this Pre-Install RPM be installed on top of a 'minimal' installation of Linux to provide just the necessary packages to install and run Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.

As with the Oracle Database Pre-Install RPMs, this RPM provides all required E-Business Suite packages for both the application and database tiers, while configuring the systems with particular kernel and other values to meet requirements published in our Linux x86-64 Installation and Upgrade Notes (IUNs).

This Pre-Install RPM will significantly reduce the preparation time of an environment prior to installing, upgrading or cloning an E-Business Suite R12 instance by performing the following tasks:

  • downloading and installing all software package versions and dependencies required for installing E-Business Suite R12 (12.1, 12.2)
  • creating the users oracle and applmgr for use as owners of the database and application tiers respectively, while setting hard and soft shell resource limits
  • updating kernel parameters in /etc/sysctl.conf to recommended values
  • sets DNS resolver parameters in /etc/resolv.conf to minimum recommended values
  • sets 'numa=off' in the kernel commandline
  • disables 'Transparent Huge Pages (THP)' for Oracle Linux 6 if enabled

For more information and details, please review the 'E-Business Suite Pre-Install RPM' section in the following documents:
