In this blog, I’ll go through oracle 18c installation on oracle Linux 7.4. Oracle 18c is not officially announced for on-premises database. But for study purpose, I thought to use Oracle 18c binaries from oracle edelivery which is available for Oracle Exadata. Other option is to try 18c on Oracle SQL live which I explained here.
My environment is all ready to go. I am using Oracle virtual box 5.2.2 with Oracle Linux 7.4, 4GB memory and extra disk for oracle binaries and data files.
[root@oracle18c ~]# cat /etc/oracle-release
Oracle Linux Server release 7.4
[root@oracle18c ~]# hostname
[root@oracle18c ~]# cat /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4
::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6
