    I am new for Oracle Linux Operating systems.Currently we are installed Oracle Enterprise 6.2 and Oracle database 11g also installed and working fine.Now we need to upgrade our Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.5 from 6.2.I am using yum update command for upgrade the OS and worked fine for me(Test Server ). But after upgraded the OS I have checked the OS version and it shows 6.6.But I need only 6.5 version. Can anyone please help me to upgrade OEL 6.5 version from OEL 6.2 .

    Is this the same procedure, if upgrading from CentOS 5.x to 6.5 ?

    • Ravi Saive says:

      No you can’t jump directly from CentOS 5.x to 6.x, you need to do a fresh installation of CentOS 6, this is the only way..

      • Pavan says:

        Thanks a lot. True, It upgraded from 5.6 to 5.10 when i tried. So will go ahead and do fresh installation.

    I’ve seen several web sites with this basic instructions, but I have a less than ideal configuration. Due to very strict firewall rules, our servers can not go out to Internet yum repositories and we have to use an in house mirror.
    One consequence of that is our repo.conf files use fixed paths in the base url’s rather than the dynamically generated paths to mirror repositories for the Internet mirrors.

    I’m sure there is a stage in the yum update where these paths change from http://mirrror…/6.3/.. to http://mirror/…/6.4/… in the normal configuration, but I’m going to have to do that manually. At what point in the upgrade does the yum switch repositories?

    • Ravi Saive says:

      Yes, you correct yum switch to other mirrors, if current mirrors fails to fetch data or you can define custome repos like yum –enablerepo=reponame install package name..

    Hello Ravi, I came upon your post after I went to build some new machines and found I could no longer download ISO’s for CentOS 6.1-6.4. It seem’s as if they were blown away in most if not all mirrors.

    Was there a major flaw/vulnerability in the previous releases?

    I have not found much related to why the change was so quick and destructive. It makes me wonder.. Was there a vulnerability so extreme or perhaps NSA tampering?!?! Haha. Apparently, I am tardy to the party.
