Quick Install Guide
Outrun 0.9 Quick Install guide
This guide shows the steps to install Outrun with a minimal Oracle database (version 184.108.40.206.0) on VMware Workstation.
- Outrun ISO image "outrun-0.9-2.iso" available to be used as VMware Virtual CD Image
- Oracle RDBMS software, in one of 2 forms:
- Oracle ISO image "ora-64-112040.iso" to be used as virtual CD image (created from Oracle ZIP files)
- 3 Oracle ZIP files to be downloaded (requires Oracle support login)
- Secure Shell client available to connect to the virtual machine
- FTP client available to connect to the virtual machine
Which clients depend on your host system. For Windows, MobaXterm and FileZilla are available after setup from ftp://<ip-address>/tools/
Creating the Virtual Machine
- Create a Virtual Machine:
- Choose "I will install the Operating System later"
- Guest Operating System: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 64-bit
- Number of processors and cores: 1
- Memory 5120MB
- Use Network Address Translation (NAT)
- SCSI Controller LSI Logic
- Virtual Disk Type: SCSI
- Disk size: 32 GiB / Allocate all diskspace now
- Edit the VM's VMX file and add the following line:
Disk.enableUUID = "TRUE"
- Add an extra disk of 8GiB (using "allocate all disk space now")
- Mount the Outrun ISO image on the virtual CDrom
Installing Linux & Outrun
- Boot the machine. You should see the boot menu: Error creating thumbnail: File missing
- Select "Install Outrun System" or wait for the timeout (it will start installing automatically)
- Wait for the postinstall process to complete. The login prompt should show "Outrun for Oracle 0.9 on CentOS release 6.6 (Final)"
- Login as root
- Start the menu
- In menu Networking:
- set Auto Hostname to "OFF" and set the hostname manual to "outrun"
- set DNS Spoof to "ON"
- Restart networking via the networking menu
- Note the IP address in the status window.
- Log in as root via a remote SSH shell (ssh root@<ipaddress>)
- Start the menu again
- Verify that you see the hostname "outrun.local"
- Go to menu System
- Run "Install Oracle package"
- Exit the menu and restart it (workaround for an open issue, it reloads the newly installed Oracle menu)
- Enter the menu "Install"
If you have the "ora-64-112040.iso" file available, continue. Otherwise, create the image first.
- Creating the ISO image
- You only need to do this once even if you install Outrun many times.
- Download from Oracle's Support website the following files:
- Upload the files to the Outrun FTP server (ftp://ip-address/incoming, use an FTP client for this such as FileZilla, browsers don't upload)
- Go to main menu - Install and select ISO (Create Oracle ISO CD image)
- Select the required version: 220.127.116.11.0
- Select Create and wait a few minutes for the process to complete
- Download ora-64-112040.iso from ftp://ip-address/incoming
- Using the FTP client, remove all files from the incoming folder (to free up space for Oracle installation)
Continue the Install process
- Mount the Oracle ISO image "ora-64-112040.iso" on the VMware Virtual CDROM
- Select "CDROM" (Mount CDROM local CD drive)
- Verify that the status window shows "CD Mounted: YES" and "Install CD version: 18.104.22.168"
- Verify that the status window shows "Preinstall: OK" (if it shows WARNING you may also continue)
- Select response file (menu Response) "11.2" (11.2 EE + Partitioning)
- Install both clusterware and database binaries "Both" (Install Grid and DB software)
- Configure clusterware for a single instance (menu Single)
- Configure ASM (Create ASM instance)
Create ASM diskgroups
- Go to main menu - Storage
- Add Volume
- leave default volume name as "vol1" and submit
- Select /dev/sdb (the only option but make sure it's highlighted, and press OK
- Check "Disks" and verify that /dev/sdb is reconfigured as /dev/oracleasm/vol1
- Go to Main menu - ASM
- Show DISKS and verify that "vol1" shows up as candidate
- Select Create (diskgroup)
- Choose "DATA" as name for the new diskgroup and select Submit
- Checkmark [*] vol1 as the volume for the diskgroup, press OK
- Choose "List" (List diskgroups) to verify the DATA diskgroup is created (should show up as MOUNTED)
- Go to main menu - Database
- Select Profile "ASM-Minimal" (Minimal ASM - 1 ASM diskgroup)
- Select New (Set name for new database)
- Set new DB name to "demo", leave password as default "outrun", Submit
- Choose "Create" and be patient (creating a database may take a few minutes or more)
- Optionally, select "Auto" to restart the database during reboots
- Stop and start the database to reload some changed settings
