Errata

In your guide @ http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/11g ... lusterware

For the OCR and Voting disk creation, your text says to use "/dev/raw/rawX" but your screenshots say "dev/sdX". I presume the latter is the right way to do it, now that raw devices are more or less deprected in OEL/RHEL/CentOS 5.

Another problem I have is that the 10GB disk does not seem to be enough. I'm at the Summary screen for ASM/DBMS software install, but I only have 2.67GB left.

Code: Select all

[root@rac1 usr]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00
                      7.7G  4.7G  2.7G  64% /
/dev/sda1              99M   18M   77M  19% /boot
tmpfs                 506M     0  506M   0% /dev/shm

It seems that the size of the installation files that I've unzipped into /home/oracle is the difference here.

Code: Select all

[oracle@rac1 ~]$ du -sh database/
1.8G    database/

I'm wondering why there are only 7.7G assigned to / out of a 10G disk. I accepted the default LVM configuration, and this seems to be biting me in the butt now.

Just realized that I could/should pack the installation media into an ISO and mount that via the VM's CD device. Going to do that later.

Hi.

I've corrected the dodgy cut & paste. Thanks for that.

I temd to keep the installation files on an NFS mount, so I don't put them on the VM disk. I guess this is why I don't have these issues.

I'm assuming the default installation is giving you nearly 2G of swap and some boot space, hence only having about 8G of disk space left for "real" stuff.

Cheers

No problem. If I may, I'd suggest mentioning something in the beginning of the article about mounting the installation media from an ISO or NFS mount (or adding 2GB more disk), so dolts like myself aren't left with an unpleasant realization at the end of the software install.

Thanks!

Don.
