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.
The document begins with several example RDBMS installation symptoms that have been observed, each of which indicate that a "default installation" of OL 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 OL AS/ES in this document are from a 32-bit OEL 4 U4 installation, the principles of this note apply to all certified OEL 4, OL 5 and OL 6 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 RHEL OS is
<NOTE 376183.1> Defining a "default RPMs" installation of the RHEL OS
