Goal

The goal of this document is to assist in configuring an Exadata system to connect to the Oracle Public YUM repositories.  While this document is intended for Exadata systems, it can be useful for anyone using Oracle Linux. 

  

NOTE: Your Exadata Engineered System must have a working connection to the internet for YUM to work correctly.  If your system is isolated from the internet due to security policies, you will need to set up a local repository and populate it manually.  Contact Oracle Support for information on information on doing this.


NOTE: While this document covers configuring access to the Oracle Public YUM Repository, DO NOT USE  yum update with this repository to update an Exadata system. This can lead to severe problems with the system's operation.  Only use this repository to install additional packages needed for your system (for example, installing packages to allow running of GUI applications on the server) or to update specific individual packages (for example, to resolve a security vulnerability).
