How to Install and Configure Oracle on Linux
Change to the directory where you downloaded the glibc patch file, glibcpatch.tgz. Unpack the file, tar -xvzf glibcpatch.tgz. Run the patch script glibcpatch.sh, sh glibcpatch.sh. The final screen should look something like Figure 18.
Now it is time to create the original database.
Change to your staging directory (cd /home/oracle/orainst/orainst).
Start the installer (./orainst /c).
Select Custom Install.
Press enter twice to bypass the README files.
Select Create/Upgrade Database objects.
Select Create Database Objects.
Press return to acknowledge the environment variables ORACLE_HOME and ORACLE_BASE.
Press return to acknowledge the locations for the log files.
Press return to acknowledge the environment variable ORACLE_SID.
Select Oracle8 Enterprise (RDBMS), tab to INSTALL and press return.
Select Create Product DB Objects (see Figure 19).
Select Filesystem-based Database (see Figure 20).
Select Yes to distribute control files over three mount points (see Figure 21).
Enter the three mount points of /u01, /u02 and /u03 (see Figure 22).
Select the appropriate character set.
Select the appropriate national character set.
Enter the password you want to use for the SYSTEM account. You will be asked to enter it a second time to confirm the password.
Enter the password you want to use for the SYS account. You will be asked to confirm that too.
If you want an internal password for dba and operator, tab to Yes at this prompt. If you don't want an internal password tab to No.
Enter and confirm the password you want to use for the TNS listener.
Click on No to configure the MTS Listener (see Figure 23).
Press return to acknowledge the defaults for the location of the control files.
Press return twice if you wish to accept the defaults for the paths to your data files and their sizes. If you have not done any database sizing and thereby determined you need more space, the default sizes should be appropriate (see Figure 24). You can add space to any data file at a later time, if necessary.
Select Yes to accept the default file names and sizes (see Figure 25).
The installer will now create the initial database. As with the software installation, this is another good time to take a break. As before, we hope to see “The requested action has been performed for selected products.” message. Press return to return to the main install screen; tab to Exit, then press return; select Yes at the confirmation screen.
Log out, then log back in again as root. Copy the oracle user's .profile to root's home directory (cp ~oracle/.profile /root/.profile). Log out, then back in as root. Check that the environment variables in the .profile are set properly by issuing an env command.
Change to the /orainst directory and run the root.sh script.
cd $ORACLE_HOME/orainst sh root.sh
Verify ORACLE_OWNER, ORACLE_HOME and ORACLE_SID are correct. If they are, enter Y.
When it asks for the full path name to your local bin directory, enter /usr/local/bin. The script then tells you ORACLE_HOME does not match the home directory for oracle. This is not a problem. Type a Y and continue. The script will complete. (See Figure 26)
Log on as oracle and shut down the instance (see Figure 27).
svrmgrl connect internal shutdown exit

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
