Oracle Database 12c: Install and Upgrade Workshop Course Outline

 (2 days)
Version 12c
This course offers a step-by-step guide for the installation of the optional Oracle 12c grid infrastructure followed by the installation of an Oracle 12c database. The primary focus is the configuration of a Linux host system, with helpful hints for other supported platforms such as Oracle Linux, Unix and MS Windows. This textbook starts with a bare-metal server system and guides one through the process of an operating system installation, operating system configuration and finally the Oracle grid infrastructure and Oracle database installations.

This Course includes practical tips learned from many real-world installations. We include topics about the preparation of disks as Oracle Automatic Storage Management (ASM) candidate devices, troubleshooting installation issues and verifying the validity of an apparently successful installation.

While this course module applies specifically to the installation of the Enterprise Edition of the Oracle database, it covers basic topics that apply to any Oracle software installation. Therefore, this material is also useful for the installation of other Oracle products such as the Oracle Database Client, specialized options for a database server installation, and so on.

Database administrators
Application designers and developers
Web server administrators
System administrators
Implementation specialists
