We’ve just released a cookbook, echa-oracle, that handles the
installation and configuration of the Oracle RDBMS on RHEL and
derivatives (the specific targets are CentOS >= 6.4, and Oracle
11.2). The code is a fork of what we use internally to build
new Oracle boxes, and includes setting up the oracle user,
installing the RDBMS’ binaries and latest patch, and creating
(empty) databases. For details, see the cookbooks’ README.
GitHub repo: https://github.com/echaeu/echa-oracle
On the Community site: http://community.opscode.com/cookbooks/echa-oracle
We hope others in the community will find that cookbook useful!
We intent to expand its scope in the future, first by adding code
to install and configure the OEM Agent.
Any feedback, pull requests, etc. very welcome.
