Oracle Installation Guidelines

As stated in the introduction to this chapter, installation of Oracle is a complex topic. And though Oracle has automated the process to a large extent, if you don’t have your ducks in a row before you start, your success is doubtful. Therefore, this section will cover Oracle installation on NT, UNIX, and Linux, and attempt to point out the pitfalls that might trip you up on the path to a proper installation. Note, however, that the product is growing and changing with each release, so this information cannot, nor is it intended to, replace the installation guides provided by Oracle. Instead, this section is intended to provide general guidelines for the DBA who is facing installation or upgrade of the Oracle products.

Generic Installation Issues

In any installation, whether it is on W2K, NT, UNIX, or Linux, there are certain items that must be addressed. These include:

* Disk space availability
* DBA account setup
* Training
* File layout
* Tablespace layout
* Database-specific topics

We will cover these topics in turn and, hopefully, in doing so provide the DBA with the information to arrive at logical answers to installation questions that may arise.
