The continuation of the project. Installing EPM on OEL.
Today we're going to be getting the database up and running. The version we're using is available on the Oracle Support site 11g Release 2 (184.108.40.206), if you don't have access to this version don't worry. Version 12 should work fine and the steps shouldn't be that much different.
Begin by logging into the console.
We'll start by creating a shell script to run all the updates we'll need. This list of updates will allow the installation of the database and epm on OEL 6.7
Next we can make the script executable and run it. This will prep the system for installation.
The next step will be to update the /etc/hosts file. We'll be adding the hostname for our server to this file.
Next we'll be adding the following entries to the end of the /etc/sysctl.conf file
We'll now add the groups and user account we'll be using to do the installs. I took these from the Oracle DB guide online.
We'll have to add the entries for EPM and Oracle to the firewall.
Next we add the user account we created to the sudoers group.
You'll want to set the password to something very secure since this account has super user rights.
From here we'll want to create the folders we'll be using for the install process.
We'll need to ad some entries to the /etc/security/limits.conf file. This is required for both the EPM and Oracle installs.
We'll need to modify the .bash_profile file in the home folder for our install-user. (In our case oracle
You'll need to upload the installs for Oracle Database now. Once you have them uploaded you can unpack them with the following command: unzip -o -d /u01/installs/oracledb11/ /u01/installs/oracledb11/\*.zip
Before you begin the install you'll want to make sure you have set putty to enable X11 forwarding (If you're running windows like me)
Run the program runInstaller now in the database folder and if X11 forwarding is working for you, you'll now be presented with the following screens. You can click Next to continue and fill in the relevant details as shown.
At this screen you'll need to open a terminal window logged in as root and run the following two scripts.
Congratulations. We now have a functional installation of Oracle Database.
In our next step we will begin the installation of EPM 220.127.116.11.
