Learn ODA on Oracle Cloud

By Franck Pachot

You want to learn and practice your ODA command line and GUI without having an ODA at home? It should be possible to run the ODA image on VirtualBox but that’s probably a hard work as it is tied to the hardware. About the configuration, you can run the Oracle Appliance Manager Configurator on your laptop but I think it is not compatible with the latest odacli. However, for a long time Oracle provides an ODA simulator and it is now available in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace for free.

Here is it page: 300w, 1024w, 768w, 1536w, 2048w" sizes="(max-width: 2560px) 100vw, 2560px" />
You can get there by: Oracle Cloud Console > Create Compute Instance > Edit > Change Image > Oracle Images > Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) Simulator

I mentioned that this is for free. The marketplace does not allow me to run on an Always Free Eligible shape. But you may take the software and run it elsewhere (you will see the .tar.gz in the opc user home directory)

Cleanup and pull images

From the marketplace, the container is already running but I clean it and re-install. This does everything: it installs docker if not already there (you run all this as root).

# cleanup (incl. portainer)
sudo docker rm -f portainer ; sudo docker rmi -f portainer/portainer
yes | sudo ~/simulator*/
# setup (get images and start portainer)
sudo ~/simulator*/

With this you can connect by http on port 9000 to the Portainer. Of course, you need to open this in the Network Security Groups (I opened the range 9000-9100 as I’ll use those ports later). You can connect with user admin password welcome1… yes, that’s the CHANGE_ON_INSTALL password for ODA </p />
