1.1. Using Ambari with Oracle

To set up Oracle for use with Ambari:

  1. On the Ambari Server host, install the appropriate JDBC .jar file.

    1. Download the Oracle JDBC (OJDBC) driver from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/features/jdbc/index-091264.html.

    2. Select Oracle Database 11g Release 2 - ojdbc6.jar.

    3. Copy the .jar file to the Java share directory.

      cp ojdbc6.jar /usr/share/java
    4. Make sure the .jar file has the appropriate permissions - 644.

  2. Create a user for Ambari and grant it permissions.

    • Using the Oracle database admin utility:

      # sqlplus sys/root as sysdba
      “USERS” temporary tablespace “TEMP”;
      GRANT unlimited tablespace to $AMBARIUSER;
      GRANT create session to $AMBARIUSER;
      GRANT create TABLE to $AMBARIUSER;
    • Where $AMBARIUSER is the Ambari user name and $AMBARIPASSWORD is the Ambari user password.

  3. Load the Ambari Server database schema.

    1. You must pre-load the Ambari database schema into your Oracle database using the schema script.

      sqlplus $AMBARIUSER/$AMBARIPASSWORD < Ambari-DDL-Oracle-CREATE.sql
    2. Find the Ambari-DDL-Oracle-CREATE.sql file in the /var/lib/ambari-server/resources/ directory of the Ambari Server host after you have installed Ambari Server.

  4. When setting up the Ambari Server, select Advanced Database Configuration > Option [2] Oracle and enter the information use the username/password credentials you created in step 2.
