CentOS and Oracle 10g (AS/RAC/PORTAL/REPORTS)

Post by jofi » 2005/03/16 20:30:48

As far i can see i only have to add the /etc/redhat-version file to get it running. And since I with few problems did get it up and running on a slakware 10.1 i guess it would be a walk in the park to get it running on CentOS but since I have limited time to try new things out I thought i should check with you guys if there are any hickups and adjustments needed to get this show on the road.

Presumably you created the file because the installer threw an error about not being certified/supported etc under CentOS. You can also get around this by specifying -ignoreSysPrereqs on the command line with ./runInstaller.

I know this is a really old topic, but what information do I need to know about creating this redhat file so Oracle 10g can install? I'm about to be involved in a migration project where we will be moving from 9i->10g and I'd like to know for sure if CentOS will be a solid OS to install, or if I should just spend the time and get RHEL4 App Server up and running.

Nice forums, btw :D

On CentOS 4.2:

We installed Oracle 10G database version
And Forms & Reports server version 10.1.2

The Oracle verification script did not flag CentOS 4.2 as being a problem.
Maybe this red hat file is no longer needed.
