Last updated on AUGUST 31, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Database Products
Linux on IBM Z


This Document explains the requirements that need to be met for a successful installation of GRID INFRASTRUCTURE/ RDBMS release (or above) on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 (UPDATE 2), 64-bit (s390x). It is highly recommended that RHEL 6 (UPDATE 2) or later is used as issues have been identified with kernels before version 2.6.32-220.


It is NOT the purpose of this NOTE to repeat every "how-to" step that is presented in the 11gR2 Installation Guide manual. For example this NOTE does not include how to create the Linux OS account named "oracle", nor does it cover how to set environment variables. Both are adequately covered in Chapter 2 "Oracle Database Preinstallation Requirements" of the 11gR2 Installation Guide manual.

 Oracle always recommends that you use the latest Patchset available - for 11gR2 this is which is the terminal patchset for this release.
