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?

Tim... said...

Hi.

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.

Cheers

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 PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib:/lib:/usr/lib
export CLASSPATH=$ORACLE_HOME/jlib:$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/jlib

Hi.

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.

Cheers

yum install -y oracle-database-preinstall-19c gives me a message on CentOS 7

"No package oracle-database-preinstall-19c available.
Error: Nothing to do"

What I need to do to fix the problem?

Thanks for the post.

Tim... said...

Hi.

You can install it from the OL7 repository.

yum install -y https://yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL7/latest/x86_64/getPackage/oracle-database-preinstall-19c-1.0-1.el7.x86_64.rpm

Cheers

I got an error regarding /u01/app/orainventory location i think you didn't mention to create orainventory please update it.

Tim... said...

Hi.

You don't need to manually create it. If the installer can't automatically create it, you have incorrect permissions on the mount point.

Look at my Vagrant builds. I've run them hundreds of times. They do not create this location and work fine.

Cheers

bekir said...

what you mean "Putting mount points directly under root is typically a bad idea.It's done here for simplicity" ?
As far as i know mounting oracle installation directory under root is suggested by OFA


Tim... said...

Hi.

My wording is not great here. You are mounting disks to those directories, not using the root disk storage, which is fine. Installing all the software on the root disk is the issue, and what is considered bad.

Hi,

In my Oracle DB home 19c I'm unable to see the option "-ignorePrereq" I only see : ignorePrereqFailure

Where did you seen this option ?

Tim... said...

Hi.

I've been using it for ages.

https://oracle-base.com/articles/misc/oui-silent-installations

There have been several instances in the past of the usage output not matching the real usage.

This works with all my builds, including my Vagrant builds.

Cheers

Tim... said...

Hi.

Oracle 19c is not support on Oracle Linux 6, so don't try. You need to install it on OL7 or OL8, as those are supported OS versions.

Cheers

Following these steps for Oracle Linux 7.9 in Azure, but there is no Oracle Server .zip file available on the server.
Where is the Oracle Server .zip file located. I cannot figure this out from the steps listed.

Tim... said...

Hi.

Literally the first section tells you to download the software.

Cheers

Will This Installation Work on Oracle Linux 7.9 . Since as Per Install Guide its supported for OL7.5 or 7.7

Tim... said...

Hi.

Yes. There numbers they post are minimum versions of the specific release. When it says OL7.7, it typically means 7.7 upward, unless otherwise stated.

Cheers

Hi Tim,

When I run this yum install command "yum install -y oracle-database-preinstall-19c " on red hat linux 7.9 , I get below error.

No oracle-database-preinstall-19c packages available.
Error: Nothing to do

Kindly suggest me how to fix this.

Thank you

Tim... said...

Hi.

That's because it is part of the Oracle Linux repo, not the RHEL repo. You can get it from Oracle Linux.

curl -o oracle-database-preinstall-19c-1.0-1.el7.x86_64.rpm https://yum.oracle.com/repo/OracleLinux/OL7/latest/x86_64/getPackage/oracle-database-preinstall-19c-1.0-1.el7.x86_64.rpm
yum -y localinstall oracle-database-preinstall-19c-1.0-1.el7.x86_64.rpm

Cheers
