Installing 11gR2 on OEL 5.3 – postrequisites


A quick followup on my post on installing 11gR2 a little while ago (last post).

There were actually only two things I had problems with after this Oracle install on OEL 5.3:

  1. I couldn’t start the listener (got an error like “cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied”) until I had set SELinux to Permissive:
    setenforce 0
    (See for example for a discussion on this)
  2. I couldn’t reach the administrative URL’s before I had configured/disabled the local firewall, for this test instance with the quick fix:
    service iptables stop
