Chapter 8. Installing Oracle 10gR2 Enterprise Edition Database

8.1. RHEL Preparation
8.2. Oracle 10gR2 RDBMS Installation
8.3. Oracle SQL*Net Configuration

Installing the database requires you to run the Oracle Installer once more for the database-specific components. These components will include configuring and registering the Oracle SQL*Net Tnslsnr process. This process needs to run on each RAC node and should be registered with Oracle Clusterware. The final step is actually creating a database from /dev/sda of the cluster.

8.1. RHEL Preparation

Oracle 10gR2 binaries are now being shipped with a dependency on the RHEL Async I/O library. This library will need to be installed prior to running the Installer or the linking phase of the install process will fail. In this instance, it is not necessary to verify if the library is installed, as it was not included in any packages. However, if you want to check prior to install and it is installed:

rac1 $ rpm –qa | grep libaio

Otherwise, download or locate the file libaio- and install it now:

rac1 $ sudo rpm –Uhv libaio-0.3.103-3.x86_64.rpm
