Prepare Operating Systems Requirements for DB or EBS installation

Hi All

As you know there are a lot of  server preparation documentation for each  Oracle DB / EBS release (rpm's ,kernel requirements and etc).
Oracle  Remote Diagnostic Assistant (RDA)  -  is the fast way to prepare and verify  you Operating Systems Requirements for DB 10g/11g or EBS 11i/R12  installation or upgrade.

How it's works:

1. Install RDA
If RDA has not been installed, it can be downloaded from:
Note 314422.1: Remote Diagnostic Agent (RDA) 4 - Getting Started. You 
just need  download and extract the zip file.

2. Verify Hardware and OS Requirements
Unix   : ./  -vT hcve
Windows: ./rda.cmd -vT hcve

You can choose the product preinstallation check. In my case I want to check R12.1 preinstallation on Linux RedHat 5 - 64bit.

In the end of procedure you will get the html report with Test Results and Failure Summary.
Please review it and fix according the output recommendation.

3. Re-run RDA script to check if the issue was resolved.

Useful Documentation:
How to Verify Unix Hardware and OS Requirements for OWB [ID 1375402.1]
Remote Diagnostic Agent (RDA) 4 - Getting Started [ID 314422.1]

Good Luck ...
