Having worked with the Exalogic Command Line for a while I
decided to wrap some of the common functions in a simplified bash
script. This saves me creating the keys, connecting and
identifying the appropriate Ids. Instead I can simply specify the
Name and the script will do the rest of the work. This initial
version has just a few commands in it but as I add more the blog
entry will expand, as will the script, and document the new
All the Command below will work against the whole vDC unless they
Whilst working on an Exalogic Upgrade I was working with the ZFS
storage and having executed the same commands a number of times I
decided to script them. This short blog entry, although it will
grow over time, contains the scripts I find useful. For each of
the scripts I will simply provide a brief description and the
source of the script and occasionally add the output assuming it
is not too long. Where I need to pass the Hostname / IP Address of
the storage heads the scripts will use the flags (unless otherwise
Oracle introduced Engineered Systems to the world in 2008.
Two years later, Exalogic built on this success with an integrated solution
that delivered extreme performance, simplified maintenance, and also ran all of
your applications. Since then, the engineered systems trend caught fire, with
several industry analyst studies giving it credence.
Now IBM comes out with its me-too offering, the PureApplication
System, a converged infrastructure system from IBM that doesn’t quite make the
cut for a truly engineered system.
By default running your Exalogic in a Virtual provides you with,
what to Cloud Users, is a single large resource and they can just
create vServers and not care about how they are laid down on the
the underlying infrastructure. All the Cloud Users will know is
that they can create vServers. For example if we have a Quarter
Rack (8 Nodes) and our Cloud User creates 8 vServers those 8
vServers may run on 8 distinct nodes or may all run on the same
Although in many cases we, as Cloud Users, may not be to worried
Having installed your Exalogic Virtual environment by default you
have a single template which can be used to create your vServers.
Although this template is suitable for creating simple test or
development vServers it is recommended that you look at creating
your own custom vServers that match the environment you wish to
build and deploy. Therefore this Tea Time Snippet will take you
through the simple process of modifying the standard template.
Before You Start
To edit the template you will need the Oracle ModifyJeos Utility
