Simplifying an R12 Install

Pre-validation RPMs

I’d discussed installing an RPM to check your kernel settings and do other trivial OS/Linux tasks before installing an Oracle database here.  Now Oracle has officially released the same mechanism to validate an R12 (12.1, 12.2) environment; I caught wind of it on Steven Chan’s blog here.  This is a nice touch, since the requirements (especially on the application server side) include many x86 packages which are a pain to get.  You can read about it here in Doc ID 1330701.1.  Essentially, you ensure your yum settings allow you to be subscribed to Oracle add-on’s (I’m assuming Oracle Linux here, if you’re not on OL I guess you could point to the public repositories?).  

yum install oracle-ebs-server-R12-preinstall
