Hi Experts, I need some useful doc links or step by step procedure to perform Oracle installation and migration in Linux environment. I surfed through the NET and could not find any good docs or PTF on this. As I'm new to explore this role, can any one provide me some useful related links?

    The first link provided by CarlosDl really is a very good guide to the basics of installing Oracle 10G on either Redhat or Suse (or CentOS.) If you aren't familiar with running Oracle on Linux, the learning curve is pretty steep, and the only way to learn it is to dive in and use Oracle's documentation. It's going to take a lot of houirs, blood, sweat, and tears. A few tips on what you have asked; If you are migrating between similar Linux systems (for example, both are 2.6 kernel, x86 architecture, same release of Oracle) you can use rman to back up the database and then restore them to the new system. If there are differences between your architecture and/or Oracle DBMS versions, then you'll need to use export/import (exp/imp) or datapump (expdp/impdp) to export databases from the old system and import the databases to the new system. Another quite advanced topic would be using data guard to set up a standby database on the new system, after which you could switchover from the old system with very little downtime. If the technology and tools I've mentioned all sound foreign to you, then like I said, you are going to need to invest a significant ammount of time and effort to learn Oracle's products before you'll be able to accomplish your goal. There really are no 'quickstart' guides to what you are trying to accomplish.

    My first suggestion would be to become familiar with the operating system. It would be much easier to understand the installation documents once you understand the environment you are installing in. If you have only worked in the Windows world, UNIX/LINUX is very different and the better you understand, the easier any installation of software will be. Once you get used to the new world, the activities make a lot more sense. Good luck.
