How to Install OBIEE on Linux OEL5 update 8 -- Part -4

Installing Oracle-validate RPM:

As we all know we need to install database  to install OBIEE.

Installing database on linux involves modifying ststem parameters and  creating users and groups.

We need to do all these stuff manually.

To make our life easy oracle had oracle-validate rpm. Oracle-validated RPM does a number of things for us.

  • It creates the user oracle

  • It creates the groups oinstall and dba

  • It modifies the kernel parameters in /etc/sysctl.conf

  • It sets the hard and soft shell resource limits in /etc/security/limits.conf

  • And most importantly, downloads and installs number of packages which are required for the Oracle 11g database software installation while resolving the dependencies between the packages as well

  • Login as Root and run the following command :

    Yum Install oracle-validate


    This will install all the users and groups and prerequisites to install the database.

     After that  do the following to change the password for the user oracle created by oracle-validate RPM.

    Thus the prerequisites for installing the oracle database is ready and we are now all set to install the database.
