This bulletin is produced to provide a central source for all the primary installation settings for the various mainstream unix platforms, e.g. IBM AIX, HP-UX, Oracle Solaris, Tru64, and Linux.
Careful comparison of the Installation Guide and the applicable release note for an OS/Oracle version has been done to ensure that this bulletin provides the most complete source of data in hopes that it will save time for each researching analyst.
Keeping the OS kernel current helps stabilize the system. Production systems should never run an out dated OS kernel version. As a best practice, Oracle recommends the OS kernel version be maintained to within 6 months of current. Please contact the OS vendor directly for more information, risk exposure, and patching recommendations.
NOTE 1: As of now ,12.1 Database is released only for Linux & Solaris ,hence the note has the information only for these platforms.
NOTE 2: Pre-compilers requirements are no longer addressed in this note, for a single source note that addresses Pre-compiler/Compiler requirements, please refer to: Note 43208.1 Certified Compilers
This focus of this bulletin is on assisting the Oracle Unix installation community in resolving installation issues of the RDBMS. This bulletin places in one document all the pertinent information related to installations that has been extracted from three different documents (Installation Guides, Release Notes, and SRNs)
