Let’s see what’s changed with Oracle Database 18c Release 3.
We’re now ready to create an Oracle RAC database.It’s mostly quite similar to creating a single instance Oracle database.The major differences come with how the various infrastructure components are administered.We’ll get to that in good time. Quick links to all the tasks: Task #1: Create Additional ASM Diskgroups. Task #2: Create an Oracle 12c RAC …
Oracle VM can be a little tricky to drive, so I use this post to document some gotchas and what I did to resolve them. Use the following links to jump to the item you need. Index: Error Starting Up VMs. Error Logging Into Oracle VM manager. VM Stuck on ‘Stopping’. …
The last major hurdle we need to overcome before installing some Oracle software and building a RAC database is to configure shared storage. Shared storage is the key to making Oracle RAC work. The same storage concurrently visible to and updatable from multiple servers really is the heart of the system. Enterprise class dedicated SAN …
It’s acronym time boys and girls! Before we get to the fun part of configuring the shared storage in Part 9, we need setup a few more slightly less fun items. Secure Shell or SSH and Domain Name System or DNS. After that we take the thrill ride of running the Cluster Verification Utility or …
Now it’s time to start the process of building our first Oracle RAC system. To do that, we will need two Oracle Database 12c server nodes running Oracle Linux.This installment shows how to build that rather efficiently using a cool capability of Oracle VM. Quick links to all the tasks: Task #1: Install Oracle Linux on …
Now that the basic building blocks of the Oracle Database infrastructure are in place, it’s time to start building out the servers themselves. A management console helps enormously with the administration and maintenance of servers and that’s what we’re going to build first. Although hardly the last word in ease of use, intuitive interface design …
