This article describes how I went from a clean Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.4 environment in a VirtualBox VM to a VM with additional hard disk, volume group and logical volume with the Oracle Database 12c up and running. The steps are:
  • add hard disk to VM
  • leverage the new disk in the Linux file system (through physical device, file partition, volume group, logical volume, directory with mount of disk)
  • make some pre-install preparations
  • download the Oracle Database 12c installation archives and extract them
  • run the installer and provide the proper configuration details
  • perform post-installation activities
  • verify access to the database is available
