Oracle RAC on VirtualBox…

With the recent news that the latest version of VirtualBox now supports shared disks, I thought I better give it a go and see if I could do a RAC installation on it. The good news is it worked as expected. You can see a quick run through here: Oracle Database 11g Release 2 RAC […]

Oracle 11gR2 RAC On Linux Using NFS

I finally got round to trying an NFS installation of 11gR2 RAC. Oracle Database 11g Release 2 RAC On Linux Using NFS No real surprises here. It all seems a little simpler when using NFS, but it was cronically slow on my crappy kit. Cheers Tim…

DNS Configuration for SCAN and Editions…

A couple of new articles have crept out recently. The first is me pretending to understand DNS. DNS Configuration for the SCAN used with Oracle RAC Database 11g Release 2 I used this configuration in place of the “/etc/hosts” in my VMware RAC installation and it worked great. The second is a brief romp through […]

Oracle 11gR2 RAC On Linux Using VMware Server 2

I’ve taken my first tentative steps into 11gR2 RAC and it was a big surprise. Oracle 11g Release 2 RAC On Linux Using VMware Server 2 11gR2 RAC feels very different to 11gR1 RAC. I can imagine quite a few people wanting to upgrade from 11gR1 thinking it will be trivial and getting a rude […]

Oracle 11g RAC On Linux Using VMware Server 2…

I mentioned in a previous post I had taken the plunge and upgraded to VMware Server 2 on my laptop. Now I’ve also upgraded my main machine at home and it seems to be working fine. Probably the most complicated thing I run at home is a virtual RAC, so I wrote a new article […]

Oracle 11g RAC on Windows…

I guess you would have to be in a coma to not notice that Oracle 11g is now out for Windows 32-bit. To celebrate this release I’ve done an 11g RAC on Windows 2003 article, which is an update of my 10g RAC on Windows 2003 article. With both installations, if you get the networking […]

Articles and stuff…

Articles: I think I’m finally getting myself back on track. It’s been an unusual few weeks though. I spent quite some time complaining that I couldn’t think of anything to write about and hoping 11g would inspire me. Since the release of 11g and the inevitable installation articles, I’ve felt rather lethargic again. Getting into […]

Oracle 11g RAC on NFS…

As a follow-on from my 10g RAC on NFS article, I thought it would be nice to have an 11g RAC on NFS article. The process is very similar, with a couple of exceptions: The Virtual IP Configuration Assistant (vipca) runs in silent mode without any problems now. Under 10g, you had to use a […]

Oracle 10g RAC using NFS…

I’ve mentioned it before, but I really like Kevin Closson‘s blog. For some time he’s been evangelizing about Oracle RAC over NFS, so I thought I would give it a go to see what it’s all about and here is the result. Oracle 10g RAC On Linux Using NFS I was only using two machines, […]
