Preparing for Oracle 12c Installation

1. To begin, make sure that all the packages currently installed on

your RHEL/CentOS 7 system are updated to their latest versions.

# yum update -y

2. Next, installed all the required dependencies for the RDBMS, along with the zip
and unzip packages.

# yum install -y binutils.x86_64 compat-libcap1.x86_64 gcc.x86_64 gcc-c++.x86_64

glibc.i686 glibc.x86_64 glibc-devel.i686 glibc-devel.x86_64 ksh compat-libstdc++-33
libaio.i686 libaio.x86_64 libaio-devel.i686 libaio-devel.x86_64 libgcc.i686
libgcc.x86_64 libstdc++.i686 libstdc++.x86_64 libstdc++-devel.i686 libstdc++-
devel.x86_64 libXi.i686 libXi.x86_64 libXtst.i686 libXtst.x86_64 make.x86_64
sysstat.x86_64 zip unzip

3. Create the user account and groups for Oracle.

# groupadd oinstall

# groupadd dba

# useradd -g oinstall -G dba oracle

Finally, set a password for the newly created oracle account.

# passwd oracle

4. Add the following kernel parameters to /etc/sysctl.conf file.

fs.aio-max-nr = 1048576

fs.file-max = 6815744
kernel.shmall = 2097152

kernel.shmmax = 8329226240

kernel.shmmni = 4096

kernel.sem = 250 32000 100 128

net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 9000 65500

net.core.rmem_default = 262144

net.core.rmem_max = 4194304

net.core.wmem_default = 262144

net.core.wmem_max = 1048586

and apply them:

# sysctl -p

# sysct -a

5. Set the limits for oracle in /etc/security/limits.conf file.

oracle soft nproc 2047

oracle hard nproc 16384

oracle soft nofile 1024

oracle hard nofile 65536

6. Create a directory named /stage and extract the zipped installation file.
# unzip -d /stage/

Before proceeding, create other directories that will be used during the actual
installation, and assign the necessary permissions.

# mkdir /u01

# mkdir /u02

# chown -R oracle:oinstall /u01

# chown -R oracle:oinstall /u02

# chmod -R 775 /u01

# chmod -R 775 /u02

# chmod g+s /u01

# chmod g+s /u02

We are now ready to run the installation script.

7. Open a GUI session in the RHEL/CentOS 7 server and launch the installation


and follow the steps presented by the installer.

Installing Oracle 12c on CentOS 7

8. Enter the email address associated with your Oracle account (optional).

9. Choose Create and configure a database.

Configure a Oracle Database

10. Select Desktop class since we are setting up a minimal configuration and a starter

Oracle Desktop Class Installation

11. Select the following options for basic configuration.

 Oracle base: /u01/app/oracle
 Software location: /u01/app/oracle/product/12.2.0/dbhome_1
 Database file location: /u01
 OSDBA group: dba
 Global database name: your choice. We chose tecmint here.
 Take note of the password, as you will be using it when you first connect to the database.
 Uncheck Create as Container database.

12. Leave the default Inventory Directory as /u01/app/oraInventory.

13. Verify that the installation pre-checks are completed without errors.

Oracle 12c Installation Settings

The installer will not let you past this point if any errors are found.

14. Wait until the Oracle 12c installation completes.

Oracle 12c Installation Progress

It is possible that at some point during the installation you will be asked to run a
couple of scripts to set up further permissions or correct issues. This is illustrated
Oracle 12c Configuration Scripts

And here:

# cd /u01/app/oraInventory

# ./

# cd /u01/app/oracle/product/12.2.0/dbhome_1

# ./
Execute Oracle 12c Configuration Scripts

15. After that, you will need to return to the previous screen in the GUI session and
click OK so that the installation can continue.
When it is finished, you will be presented with the following message indicating the
URL of the Oracle Enterprise Manager:


Oracle 12c Finishing Touches

16. To allow connections from outside the server, you will need to open the following




As follows:

# firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=1521/tcp --add-port=5500/tcp --add-

port=5520/tcp --add-port=3938/tcp --permanent

# firewall-cmd --reload

17. Next, login as oracle using the password that was chosen previously and add the
following lines to .bash_profilefile.


ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle; export ORACLE_BASE

ORACLE_HOME=$ORACLE_BASE/product/12.1.0/dbhome_1; export ORACLE_HOME

ORACLE_SID=tecmint; export ORACLE_SID


LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib:/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/lib64; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH


18. Finally, replace localhost with on.

# vi $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin/listener.ora

Set Oracle 12c Listener

19. The last step consists in reloading .bash_profile to apply the new settings.

# source .bash_profile

20. And then login to the database using the system account and the password
chosen in Step 11 of the previous section.

# sqlplus system@tecmint

Optionally, let’s create a table inside the tecmint database where we will insert some
sample records as follows.



name VARCHAR2(20));

Please note that IDENTITY columns were first introduced in Oracle 12c.
SQL> INSERT INTO NamesTBL (name) VALUES ('Gabriel');

SQL> INSERT INTO NamesTBL (name) VALUES ('Admin');


Create Table in Oracle 12c Database

Enabling Oracle to Start on System Boot

21. To enable the database service to start automatically on boot, add the following
lines to /etc/systemd/system/oracle-rdbms.service file.

# /etc/systemd/system/oracle-rdbms.service

# Invoking Oracle scripts to start/shutdown Instances defined in /etc/oratab

# and starts Listener


Description=Oracle Database(s) and Listener








22. Finally, we need to indicate that the tecmint database should be brought up
during boot in /etc/oratab (Y: Yes).
