CHEF: Announcing relaunched oracle cookbook v1.1.0!

I'm happy to let you know, that the v1.1.0 of the cookbook has been released. I've released under my own user-id on GitHub. Please check it out at:

Oracle chef cookbook v1.1.0

New features in version v1.1.0

  • Configure the EM dbconsole (Enterprise Manager Database Control)
  • Install Oracle Client and patch it to the latest patch

Few notes:

The EM dbconsole is configured for every database. You can turn it off from attributes/default.rb, if you don't want it configured by default. It does extend the install time, but I also modified the default_template.dbt to have less options on by default. The older template is now named as midrange_template.dbt. For v1.1.1 I will make the template file name it as a node attribute, so that you can override it from a role for example.

For the Oracle client, please modify the templates/default/tnsnames.ora to best match your database layout. Currently it is only has an example.

Please try it out, contribute and read the "Roadmap" chapter on the for planned features.
