Upgrading OCM 11g to OCM 12c (Series) 4 - Install Oracle Database Software

Check out other posts of this Series:

In this post, I will be detailing the Oracle 12c database installation process making use of the guest Virtual Machine we have created on post Upgrading OCM 11g to OCM 12c (Series) 2 - Building your Study Lab.

This will most likely be the shortest post of all as most of the foundation work has been done on previous posts. The installation of the database software itself is pretty simple.

Prior to installing the Oracle Database Software, it is recommended that you get familiar with the following topics from the Oracle Database Documentation:

Oracle Database Installation Checklist

Overview of Oracle Database Installation

Oracle Database Preinstallation Tasks

Installing Oracle Database

Let’s get started!

We will be making use of the shared folders we setup earlier to copy the installation files into the VM.

$ cd /media
$ cd sf_Oracle_Software/
$ cd OCM\ 12c\ Upgrade/
$ ls
$ cp -v linuxamd64_12102_database_1of2.zip linuxamd64_12102_database_2of2.zip /u01/app/software/
$ cd /u01/app/software/
$ unzip linuxamd64_12102_database_1of2.zip
$ unzip linuxamd64_12102_database_2of2.zip
 
$ ll

$ cd database

We are installing the database software only as the database creation itself will be covered on a subsequent post.

I am ignoring the Swap Size since this is an installation for a Study Lab.

Performing root user operation.

The following environment variables are set as:
    ORACLE_OWNER= oracle
    ORACLE_HOME=  /u01/app/oracle/product/12.1.0/dbhome_1

Enter the full pathname of the local bin directory: [/usr/local/bin]:
The contents of "dbhome" have not changed. No need to overwrite.
The contents of "oraenv" have not changed. No need to overwrite.
The contents of "coraenv" have not changed. No need to overwrite.

Entries will be added to the /etc/oratab file as needed by
Database Configuration Assistant when a database is created
Finished running generic part of root script.
Now product-specific root actions will be performed.

That’s it for now.

On the next post, I will be taking us through the exam topic create and manage pluggable databases.

Many thanks to Alex Zaballa who already sent me his study notes on this next subject, which is a quite large topic to be covered.

In the next few days, I will be compiling information from a few sources in order to create a concise post.

Até la!

Daniel
