Goal

This document will explain the RDBMS installation symptoms that might be observed when Linux OS RPMs that are expected to be present from the initial OS installation are in-fact absent.

After installing default RPM' s the document begins with several example RDBMS installation symptoms that have been observed, each of which indicate that a "default installation" of RHEL is missing. This document then continues with a strategy to verify the exact RPM groupings and the individual RPMs that were selected at OS install time. Finally, the document concludes with example RPM command outputs for a "default RPMs" installation.

Although the details that are used to explain the concept of a "default-RPMs" installation of RHEL AS/ES in this document are from a 64-bit RHEL 4 U1 installation, the principles of this note apply to all certified Linux distributions.  The equivalent NOTE for the SLES OS is:

<NOTE 386391.1> "Defining a "default RPMs" installation of the SLES OS"


The equivalent NOTE for the Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) is:

<NOTE 401167.1> "Defining a "default RPMs" installation of the OEL OS"
