Oracle Database - Standard Edition Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Database Service - Version N/A and later Oracle Database Cloud Exadata Service - Version N/A and later Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 22.214.171.124 and later Oracle Database Backup Service - Version N/A and later Linux x86-64
This note explains the requirements that need to be met for a successful installation of Oracle Database 126.96.36.199 release On Oracle Linux 8 (or higher) or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 (or higher) 64-bit (x86-64).
It is NOT the purpose of this NOTE to repeat every "how-to" step that is presented in the Oracle Database 19c Installation Guide. 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 "Oracle® Database Installation Guide 12c for Linux"
This procedure is meant for those Planning / Installing Single Instance Oracle Database 188.8.131.52 on Oracle Linux 8 (or higher) or RHEL 8 (or higher) on the 64-bit (x86-64) platform. Since it is the expressed goal to keep Oracle Linux (OL) functionally IDENTICAL to RHEL, this NOTE is also completely applicable to 64-bit (x86-64) RHEL 8
**************IMPORTANT********************* This procedure is not to be followed for Planning / Installing Grid Infrastructure (GI) or any other Oracle products,because of the following important reason-
Oracle Grid Infrastructure Release 12c Release 1 (184.108.40.206) is not supported on Oracle Linux 8.1 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.1. To install Oracle Real Applications Clusters (Oracle RAC) 12c Release 1 (220.127.116.11) on Oracle Linux 8.1 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.1, first install Oracle Grid Infrastructure 19c and then install Oracle RAC 18.104.22.168.
