Installing Oracle Database 10g

Learning objective

After completing this topic, you should be able to install Oracle Database 10g on a UNIX operating system.

Exercise overview

In this exercise, you're required to install Oracle Database 10g on a Linux operating system.

This involves the following tasks:

  • configuring the Oracle install environment
  • running the root user script
  • configuring the installation
  • setting database passwords

Task 1: Configuring the Oracle install environment

The system administrator has set up the OS so that it is ready for the install, and the install media is staged at /stage/Disk1.

On running the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) installation command, the Welcome page appears. You start the software installation by clicking Next.

At the prompt, complete the location of the inventory directory so that it's set to the oraInventory directory and then navigate to the next page of the OUI.

Steps list
1. Type oraInventory in the Enter the full path of the Inventory Directory field.
2. Click Next.

Task 2: Running the root user script

The Oracle Universal Installer dialog box appears, prompting you to run the root user script.

To run the file, you leave the OUI and open a new terminal. In the new terminal, you enter the commands

cd /u01/app/oracle/oraInventory

Run the root user script.

Steps list
1. Type, and press Enter

Task 3: Configuring the installation

After running, you return to the OUI and continue to the Specify File Locations page.

Accept the default source and destination file locations and select the install type best suited to online transaction processing. Choose the database configuration most appropriate for a wide range of standard tasks, and then specify Unicode Standard UFT-8 AL32UTF8 as the database character set. To complete the task, navigate to the Specify Database Schema Passwords page.

Steps list
1. Click Next
2. Select the Enterprise Edition option, and click Next
3. Click Next
4. Click the General Purpose option, and click Next
5. Select Unicode Standard UFT-8 AL32UTF8 from the Database Character Set section drop-down menu
6. Click Next.

Task 4: Setting database passwords

You now need to configure passwords for the database schemas.

Specify "oracle" as the password for all administration accounts and then navigate to the Summary page of the OUI.

Steps list
1. Select the Use the same password for all the accounts option
2. Type oracle in the Enter Password field
3. Type oracle in the Confirm Password field
4. Click Next

You can now view all the products and settings you chose for the installation. Once you have checked the summary, you can start the installation by clicking Install.
