Practice using a migration script to migrate older Oracle Autonomous Linux instances to integrate with the OS Management service in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
Standalone Autonomous Linux instances are instances created with older Oracle Autonomous Linux images, typically from July 2021 and earlier. These instances are referred to as standalone because, when created, they are not integrated by default with the OS Management service in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. An alx-migrate script has been created to migrate these standalone instances to be managed by the OS Management service. Oracle Autonomous Linux instances built with images from August 2021 onwards are by default integrated with the OS Management service. After the script is installed, the migration can be performed, and the instance registered and then managed using the OS Management service. It then takes advantage of the additional autonomous capabilities provided by the service, such as monitoring processes and critical events, and automatic daily updating and patching.
Oracle Linux AppStreams introduced the concept of modules, streams and profiles that allow for the management of different versions of software applications within a single OS release. From the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure console the OS Management service can manage instance modules and AppStreams, including viewing module information and updating modules, streams, and profiles. Similarly, from the command line, AppStreams on a single instance can also be installed and managed.
