SLES shell script to check required os packages according to documentation before starting oracle forms & reports installation
If you try to install oracle forms & reports 22.214.171.124 on SLES 11.3 than despite all installer checks are passed maybe you get a message like:
Error in invoking target ‘install’ of makefile ‘<FR_HOME>/sqlplus/lib/ins_sqlplus.mk’.
The reuirement check of the installer shows only missing openmotif classes which are not really required on SLES (see Doc ID 1567715.1), but no problems with a compiler or something similar.

Post itself is divided into two parts:
- Oracle Linux installation (points 1 to 12)
- Vagrant box configuration (points 13 to 16)
Part 1 – Oracle Linux installation

After setting up a small CentOS server with Oracle Express Edition (XE), I wanted to stress test it to see how much load such a barebones installation can handle. In (more...)
By now, you should have a working installation of CentoOS with Oracle XE, Apex, ORDS, TomCat and Apache. There are still some additional configuration and optimization we should do, which (more...)
Let's get right to it, starting with Oracle XE.
Installing Oracle XEThis is actually quite straightforward, assuming you have followed the prerequisite steps in part one.

Provisioning the server
First of all, we need a server to install the software on. There are many hosting providers that offer cheap Linux servers. I have been trying out (more...)
During a recent X5 installation I had to configure Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) on the client network of the compute nodes. Although the ports were running at 10Gbits and default configuration of Active/Passive works perfectly fine the customer wanted even distribution of traffic and workload across their core switches.
Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP), also known as 802.3ad is a methods of combining multiple physical network connections into one logical connection to increase (more...)
Ubuntu is a very popular operating system (OS) in the cloud space but the Federal government has been reluctant to adopt Ubuntu, preferring to stick with Redhat as their Linux flavor of choice. As the Government moves toward the cloud it makes sense to me that Ubuntu would start to see some more play time. One of the big hurdles to this is the need to ensure that Ubuntu meets the Federal Information Security Management Act (more...)
There has recently been a lot of news about the exploit revealed in the bash shell. While the fix is very quick to implement, there are a couple of tricks that are required to install this update on an Exadata environment. According to Oracle support note #1405320.1, Exadata storage server versions 11.2.3.x.x and 12.1.1.x.x are susceptible to the exploit. On a typical Oracle Enterprise Linux, a simple (more...)
Thank You @OracleAlchemist and @gokhanatil for good information about it.

Oracle introduces centos2ol.sh script that can convert CentOS 5 and 6 systems to Oracle Linux. After that run "yum upgrade" again.

Most of the talk about Oracle’s release of 126.96.36.199 is about the InMemory feature, but more things have changed, for example some essential things about loggin in the Grid Infrastructure have changed. Normally in Oracle Grid Infrastructure logging for Grid components was done in $GI_HOME:
oracle@dm01db01(*gridinfra):/home/oracle> cd $ORACLE_HOME/log/`hostname -s`/ oracle@dm01db01(*gridinfra):/u01/app/188.8.131.52/grid/log/dm01db01>
There we have the main alert log for GI and several subdirectories for the GI binaries where they write (more...)
I’m sharing this in the hope of saving someone from an unwelcome surprise.
I recent upgraded an Exadata system from 184.108.40.206.1 to 220.127.116.11.1. Apart from what turns out to be a known bug that resulted in the patching of the InfiniBand switches “failing”, it all seemed to go without a snag. That’s until I decided to do some node failure testing…

The following is a list of changes I noted during installation of Oracle Linux 7. I imagine the same will apply to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, but I haven’t verified that to be the case.
Setting the Hostname
I was accustomed to updating /etc/sysconfig/network with the hostname of my machine as documented here for Oracle Linux 7. I did this and was then surprised to find that my hostname was not picked up. On returning (more...)
