How to Install Oracle Database 11.2.0.1 on Enterprise Linux 5 - 1 of 4 - Server Preparation

  • by

There're 4 phases that we install Oracle database 11.2.0.1 on CentOS 5.7.

  1. Server Preparation
  2. Oracle Software Installation
  3. Oracle Listener Installation
  4. Oracle Database Creation

A. Server Preparation

  1. Install Required Packages
  2. Name Resolution
  3. Security
  4. System Resource
  5. Prepare User Oracle
  6. Prepare Installation Sources

1. Install Required Packages

Please make sure the following packages are installed in this server.

  • binutils-2.17.50.0.6

kernel-accelerated async I/O capabilities, as do applications which
require the Linux-native async I/O API.

Summary     : A utility for unpacking zip files.
Description :
The unzip utility is used to list, test, or extract files from a zip
archive.  Zip archives are commonly found on MS-DOS systems.  The zip
utility, included in the zip package, creates zip archives.  Zip and
unzip are both compatible with archives created by PKWARE(R)'s PKZIP
for MS-DOS, but the programs' options and default behaviors do differ
in some respects.

Install the unzip package if you need to list, test or extract files from
a zip archive.

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/.local/bin:$HOME/bin:$ORACLE_BASE/bin:$ORACLE_HOME/bin

export PATH ORACLE_BASE ORACLE_HOME ORACLE_SID LD_LIBRARY_PATH TMP TMPDIR

6. Prepare Installation Sources

Make a Directory for Sources

[oracle@primary01 ~]$ mkdir sources

Upload Sources

Here we upload two zip files, linux.x64_11gR2_database_1of2.zip and linux.x64_11gR2_database_2of2.zip to the above directory.

Unzip Sources

[oracle@primary01 ~]$ cd sources
[oracle@primary01 sources]$ chmod 775 *
[oracle@primary01 sources]$ unzip -q linux.x64_11gR2_database_1of2.zip
[oracle@primary01 sources]$ unzip -q linux.x64_11gR2_database_2of2.zip
[oracle@primary01 sources]$ exit
[root@primary01 ~]# exit

We are ready for next phase, Oracle software installation.
