Neoface Oracle Pre-Installer RELEASED!
I’m proud to announce the release of NEOPI english version. NEOPI is Neoface Oracle Pre-Installer. As I posted some weeks ago NEOPI is a tool to ease the pre-installation tasks that all you guys around have to do when you install Oracle software on CentOS or Redhat.
We’ve been very busy last few weeks so this promised release comes a bit late than I expected… my apologies for that! But… I have GOOD NEWS. We’ve open the configuration files to you so you can change them and set all parameters you want different from the recommended on Oracle documentation.
To extend NEOPI to your needs you can take a look to some of the configuration files that specify all parameters, packages and all procedures to install them on OS. You may explore the dirs OS4 and OS5 (refer to version 4 and version 5 of redhat/centos/oel linux) and check the different configuration for database 10g or 11g and iAS10g. We’ve also allowed you to set a final script to run, that make possible for instance you to deploy your application or an Oracle Home clone to the server that you run NEOPI. Take a look at the README!
We’ve setup 2 versions… YUM and UP2DATE version. The YUM version was tested in CentOS 4/5 and worked without any problem. To be honest, I haven’t tested the UP2DATE version on Oracle Linux, but with RHEL 4.6 with a configured support account worked without problems. So I guess if your up2date RHN or OLN account is configured it will work without any special issues.
NEOPI it’s freely distributable and the default configuration can be changed. Clear-text templates are provided for a subset of Database / OS version.
Take a look at all config files and setup it for what purposes you want. I hope some feedback from you guys… so, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, report me any issue ðŸ˜‰ Happy installing!
