Oracle Enterprise Manager Agent RPM Kit for Bare Metal Provisioning
Thank you for accepting the OTN License Agreement; you may now download this software.
Bare Metal Provisioning application in Oracle Enterprise Manager automates the deployment of Linux operating system and Oracle VM server software. The application uses standard PXE booting process and kickstart mechanism to boot new hardware machines and install the operating system. In case of Linux operating system provisioning, the application also automatically installs the Oracle Enterprise Manager Agent after the Linux install completes. In case of provisioning Oracle VM servers, the bare metal provisioning process automates the installation of Oracle VM server software. Users can then go to the Oracle Enterprise Manager console to register the newly provisioned Oracle VM servers to start managing them using Oracle Enterprise Manager.
For detailed use cases and capabilities of the Bare Metal Provisioning application, refer to the Oracle Enterprise Manager Administrator's Guide for Software and Server Provisioning and Patching
The bare metal provisioning application provides out-of-box support to provision 32-bit and 64-bit variants of the following operating systems:
Oracle Enterprise Linux and Oracle VM for x86
RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)
Suse Linux (SLES)

This kit can be used to deploy the Management Agent either as part of the Bare Metal Provisioning process for Linux operating systems or separately on top of an existing Linux installation. On how to use this Agent kit as part of the Bare Metal Provisioning application, refer to the Oracle Enterprise Manager Administrator's Guide for Software and Server Provisioning and Patching
Depending upon the servers to be provisioned, download the suitable 32-bit or 64-bit Agent RPM kit. It is recommended to use the latest versions of Agent RPM kit.
