Comments for Oracle Database 19c Installation On Oracle Linux 7 (OL7)

Alexander said...

This distribution Oracle Database 19c is intended only for Exadata, but not for Linux x86-64. What problems can there be due to the expulsion of such a solution?

It's a standard x86-64 distribution. There is an element of politics, and an element of "knowing what hardware it will be installed on" that went into the Exadata decision.

As I've said on my blog, once the on-prem release drops, I'll revise my articles, vagrant and Docker builds. This is playground only until the on-prem drop.

you have an error in /home/oracle/scripts/setEnv.sh
correctly write the following lines
export ORACLE_HOME=$ORACLE_BASE/product/19.0.0/dbhome_1/
export PATH=/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib:/lib:/usr/lib
export CLASSPATH=$ORACLE_HOME/jlib:$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/jlib

There is no mistake. It you look what I've done, I've created the script with a "cat" command. I want the "$" to remain in the script, so they have to be escaped in the "cat" command. It seems you didn't run the command, but manually created the file by pasting the contents in the command, which is why you ended up with the wrong result. The article is correct.

I'll put a note into the article in case others make the same mistake you did.
