I'm trying to play with Exadata (version 184.108.40.206.1, Linux/x64) and VirtualBox.
I know that it is hardware dependent, and will not work on my VM.
I downloaded the files "cellImageMaker_220.127.116.11.1_LINUX.X64_130109-1.x86_64.tar"
and "computeImageMaker_18.104.22.168.1_LINUX.X64_130109-1.x86_64.tar", and built the ISO images using makeImageMedia.sh.
I am able to boot with the 2 images (both cell and db).
The problem is the login. I googled for "exadata root password" and found some,
like "root/welcome1" and "root/changeme", but it doesn't work.
I also tried "root/exadata", "root/root", "root/oracle", "root/oracle1".
I tried the same passwords for "oracle" user, also fails.
I also tried to boot using "linux single", but it doesn't boot in "maintenance mode".
How can I manage to login into these hosts using "root" account?
Thanks in advance.
actually I did the same installation while a guy on the web did a post that it is possible to setup a storage server environement in a Oracle Virtual box for test purposes.
I also download the software create an iso image and start the virtual box.Here are two problems:
1. There was a error message that the hardware is not correct and
2. the root password or celladmin password was not known
I try root/welcome, root/welcome123, celladmin/welcome and so on.
All the user/passwords combinations doesn't work.
So for me it looks like a fake otherwise the guy could give the whole information for doing such an setup.
I know that Oracle University have a Oracle VM Image which they use for Exadata courses but this VM Image is not for general purposes use.
If you have new ideas on creating such a storage server environment let me know.
Where do you find the information for doing such a storage server setup? Could you please poste the link.
