Patch 19069793: ORACLE BIG DATA APPLIANCE MAMMOTH DEPLOYMENT BUNDLE V2.6.0 FOR ORACLE LINUX 5

Scope

Note: Mammoth V2.6.0 (OL5) can be installed on a Image V2.6.0 OL5 base image only.

It is recommended for all new customers to install Oracle Linux 6. Follow steps for OL6 from the following document: Oracle Big Data Appliance Base Image Version 2.6.0 for New Installations on OL6 (Doc ID 1902285.1).

In most cases, there would be no reason to reimage to the v2.6.0 base image for OL5. Only in a specific case that the customer has to have OL5 instead of OL6 would these steps be followed. If the customer has a specific need to be on OL5 mammoth v2.6.0 then these steps would be followed. That is only after reimaging the cluster to OL5 from following the steps in Oracle Big Data Appliance Base Image Version 2.6.0 for New Installations on OL5 (Doc ID 1962237.1).
