Building an OBIEE Test Lab - Part II

So it's taking a little longer than I anticipated. That's a good thing (for me anyway). In Part I, I tried to diagram out what my plans were. My drawing was crude, and remains so. Mike Durran left me a link to the drawing below which is found here in the docs.

Now I'm an ambitious lad, but not that ambitious. This is for fun and amusement, perhaps I'll learn a thing or two along the way.

So how does this qualify as Part II? Well, I finally created the database. (No, I'm not going RAC like the diagram and docs say. Like I said, I'm not completely nutters.) This is an accomplishment for me as it's been quite some time since I've built anything, close to a year. So I'm celebrating by writing.
Oracle Enterprise Linux 64 bit, 5.8
Database host: oracle-db
I used OEL 5.8 because that's the latest version I could find that was certified for (straight from OTN). I was unable to find a single document that listed out the supported OSes, but I'm not that adept at searching through MOS yet (LOWER( DBA )). If you know where it is, please link it up.

This database will serve as the repository home for OBIEE and perhaps something like Identity Manager (OVM, OAM). I'll probably end up using it as a source and target for various projects as well.
