First task performed was to install RPMs, set kernel params and other OS configurations leveraging oracle’s oracle-rdbms-server-11gR2-preinstall package.

Second, we need to change the security limits for soft files to 8192 from 1024

# oracle-rdbms-server-11gR2-preinstall setting for nofile soft limit is 1024
oracle soft nofile 8192

Then perform the installation:

[root@ovmanager mnt]# ./runInstaller.sh
