Audit Vault Server Installation – Software Download

In this post, I am sharing the procedure of downloading Audit Vault Server (AVS) Software from Oracle Software Delivery Cloud. You may consider this post as the first step of the Audit Vault Server Installation. Please have a look at my previous post titled Audit Vault Server (AVS) – Installation Prerequisites. You will get an overview of the prerequisites to take care of before installing the Audit Vault Server, compiled based on my own experience.

Downloading Steps

Downloading software from Oracle Software Delivery Cloud (popularly known as E-Delivery Cloud) is not that complicated. You have to follow some simple steps mentioned below:

Step 1 –  Go to Oracle Software Delivery Cloud from your favorite Web Browser. Click Sign in if you already have an Oracle Account and provide your Username and Password. Otherwise, create one.

Step 2 – Search with the text Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall. It will list all available AVDF versions. Click on the version you want to download. Here my Target AVDF version is 12.2.0.9.0. So I am clicking on that one.

Step 3 – The software is added to the Download Queue. Go to the top right corner of the page. Press the Continue button. On the landing page choose a value for Platforms/Languages option. Press the Continue button.

Step 4 – Accept Oracle Standard Terms and Restrictions at the very bottom of the next landing page. Press the Continue button afterward. The download page will appear. We only need three files named V980012-01.iso, V980013-01.iso and, V980014-01.iso. For now, the Audit Vault Server installation is our only goal, so we can skip the other files to save a little bit of time and disk space.

Step 5 – Click on the Download button. A file prefixed Oracle_SSN_DLM will be download. Click on that file. Choose the destination you want to save the software iso files. Click on the Next button.

Step 6 – The download will start. You can pause or resume the download but don’t close the window. It will abort the download. Once the download is complete, you are ready for the Audit Vault Server installation. 

That’s all for today. My upcoming post titled Audit Vault Server Installation – Step-by-Step Procedure will cover a detailed software  installation process.
