In the table below 

  • Binaries is the shared mount points where the Oracle Home and CRS_HOME is installed.
  • Datafiles includes Online Logs, Controlfile and Datafiles
  • nfsvers and vers are identical on those OS platforms that has nfsvers.  The ver option is an alternative to the nfsvers option. It is included for compatibility with other operating systems,

* NFS mount option “forcedirectio” is required on Solaris platforms when mounting the OCR/CRS files when using Oracle 10.1.0.4 or 10.2.0.2 or later (Oracle unpublished bug 4466428) 
** AIX is only supported with NAS on AIX 5.3 TL04 and higher with Oracle 10.2.0.1 and later (NetApp) 
*** NAS devices are only supported with HPUX 11.23 or higher ONLY 
**** As per BUG 11812928, the ‘intr’ & ‘nointr’ are deprecated in OEL 5.6 kernels and up including Oracle Linux 6. It is harmless to still include it, but the “NFS: ignoring mount option: nointr” will appears. This message can be ingnored.

# These mount options are for Linux kernels 2.6 and above for older kernels please check Note 279393.1

Due to Unpublished bug 5856342, it is necessary to use the following init.ora parameter when using NAS with all versions of RAC on Linux (x86 & X86-64 platforms) until 10.2.0.4. This bug is fixed and included in 10.2.0.4 patchset.

Configure your server for Yum (Yellowdog Updater Modified):

There’s no more need to look for CDs from your pile of CDs or from the clutter of your desk. Earlier in 2009, Oracle launched their public yum server which offers a free and convenient way to install packages from the Enterprise Linux and Oracle VM. Obviously, the Yum server if offered without support.

We will show you how to setup your Red Hat or Oracle Enterprise Linux to use Oracle’s public Yum repository. In this example, we only focus on 64-bit Red Hat 5 Update 3.

 [root@rac01 ~]# cd /etc/yum.repos.d/ [root@rac01 yum.repos.d]# ls -ltr total 0 [root@rac01 yum.repos.d]# wget http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-el5.repo --11:27:04-- http://public-yum.oracle.com/public-yum-el5.repo Resolving public-yum.oracle.com... 141.146.44.34 Connecting to public-yum.oracle.com|141.146.44.34|:80... connected.

Edit the file public-yum-el5.repo with your choice of editor such as vi. Change enabled=0 to enabled=1 for the following sections since we are on RH5 U3

Portions of your yum.repos.d file should look something like this:

 [el5_u3_base] name=Enterprise Linux $releasever U3 - $basearch - base baseurl=http://public-yum.oracle.com/repo/EnterpriseLinux/EL5/3/base/$basearch/ gpgkey=http://public-yum.oracle.com/RPM-GPG-KEY-oracle-el5 gpgcheck=1 enabled=1</p>

Here’s an example of downloading the compat-db RPM and installing the package
