Cloud Control 12c R1 Installation on Oracle Linux 5.7 and 6.1…


While I was at Open World I tried a few times to get hold of the new Cloud Control software, but the hotel network wasn’t up to the job, so I had to wait until I got home.

The installation is pretty simple compared to previous versions of Grid Control and it installs fine on both Oracle Linux 5.x and 6.x. As always it’s a little greedy on the memory front, with the recommendation for a small installation being 4G for the Cloud Control and 2G for the repository database. That’s not including the OS requirement. On the subject of the repository database, you can use a number of 10g and 11g versions, but anything before requires additional patches, so I stayed with

  1. Hi Tim,

    Wow looks like Cloud Control 12c is far easier to setup than 11g Grid Control! Thanks again for your excellent guides.
