Oracle 12c on Fedora 27


As always, I have to start with a warning.

With that out of the way…

Fedora 27 has been out for a couple of weeks now, but I’ve not really been able to do anything with it because I couldn’t get it installed on VirtualBox. I finally managed to get the installation to work, provided I used the Live DVD when I was running VirtualBox on an Oracle Linux 7 host. That means I was finally able to have a play with 12cR2 on Fedora 27.

It’s pretty much the same as the installation on Fedora 26.

So now you know how to do it, please don’t! 🙂

  1. Hi Tim,

    One of my clients wants to migrate their 10 TB 11G standalone database from on-premise to the cloud and then upgrade the target DB to 12c. But the catch is, They want to do it with minimum downtime and they want to use Golden gate for replication.

    My initial solution is to set up empty 12c DB on cloud and use expdp/impdp for initial loading and then use the golden gate to bring both source and target in sync before the switch over. But expdp/impdp will take a lot of time.

    Is there any other way to perform this migration and upgrade other than using data pump or Data guard?

    I really appreciate your help


  2. Hi.

    By export/import I guess you mean transportable tablespaces, as I’m sure you aren’t expecting to use a conventional export/import for something that size…

    How do you plan to get the files to them? I don’t think you want to SCP 10TB to the cloud. This is not the sort of project you can plan in blog comments…
