Before starting you need to know what software will be installed. If attending an event, would be a good idea to download the software in advance to your laptop in order to avoid the download during the labs. The copyrighted software is not distributable so the volunteers will not be able to give you all the required software components. But organizers may have set up a proxy server to speed up downloads or provide at least the free software.

Windows 7 64 bit[edit]

This book covers Windows 7 64 bit as host even if all operating systems that can run VirtualBox 64bit can be used. 64 bits are mandatory since Oracle 12c for Linux 32bit is not available.


VirtualBox[edit]

This book uses VirtualBox as many Oracle specialists consider it as a mature and free virtualization solution, fully compatible with Oracle Software: https://www.virtualbox.org/. The VirtualBox versions from 4.2.12 up to 4.2.18 have been tested successfully with OEL6 and Oracle 12c.

Putty[edit]

One of the preferred SSH clients for Windows. You can download it here:

Vnc Viewer[edit]

The servers will be installed without X server, so you'll need VNC to get the graphics:
