Oracle prerequisites Puppet recipe published

I’ve been intending to do this for a while and finally found the time, without further ado, I present to you my Oracle prerequisites Puppet script.

I do hope someone out there will find this script useful, I know I do.

There are many ways this script could and should be improved:

  1. The script needs to be adapted to support more operating systems, namely, other versions of RedHat/CentOS as well as Suse and perhaps even Solaris and other Unix flavors.
  2. Relatively few additional tweaks are needed to enable the script to prepare RAC nodes.
  3. The script could/should be made a lot smarter about the way it handles kernel parameters, for now it simply hard-sets their values without taking existing configuration and the available hardware into consideration.
  4. Likewise, the script could/should be made a lot smarter about the way it handles user limits, I suppose a “limit”Puppet type might need to be implemented to enable that.
  5. It might be possible to also adapt the script to perform prerequisites setup for additional Oracle products such as Oracle Internet Application Server.

All in all, currently its a rather basic script, but it had already proved it usefulness to me.
