How can I install puppet razor on Oracle Linux 6 or 7, because I returned an error that can not install Linux than Red Hat? But in / etc / redhat-release, the OS is Red Hat Linux ...

Are you talking about using the module? In the readme it states 'Note This module does not work as expected right now, and needs to be fixed. Until then, you need to follow the instructions for manual installation'

Why not using centos 7 ? OEL ist the enterprise release from oracle when running RAC or oracle on it. I don't think it's best practive to do a mixed installation. Also OEL has to be licensed !

I have full license for OUL , this is not a problem It seems like puppet razor enterprise requirements need RedHat Enterprise Linux, and this requirement is complies

Hi Claidun, i've a running pe_razor setup using centos 7. So no need to be enterprised. Redhat release file: /etc/redhat-release CentOS Linux release 7.2.1511 (Core) If you're subscribed i think best practice is to file a support ticket.

Oracle Linux is not supported for pe_razor. There is a ticket describing the request for it here, but the primary reason is that it has not been sufficiently vetted such that we can call it supported. Despite OEL being RHEL-based, it's still quite different in which packages are available on it.
