3.1. Using Oozie with Oracle

To set up Oracle for use with Oozie:

  1. On the Ambari Server host, stage the appropriate JDBC driver file for later deployment.

    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. Make sure the .jar file has the appropriate permissions - 644.

    4. Execute the following command, adding the path to the downloaded .jar file:

      ambari-server setup --jdbc-db=oracle --jdbc-driver=/path/to/downloaded/ojdbc6.jar
  2. Create a user for Oozie and grant it permissions.

    • Using the Oracle database admin utility:

      # sqlplus sys/root as sysdba
      GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES TO $OOZIEUSER;                            
    • Where $OOZIEUSER is the Oozie user name and $OOZIEPASSWORD is the Oozie user password.
