Tim Carroll said...Great Post - What we need now is
1. Oracle PDB/CDB configuration
2. Oracle ASM and Cluster Flex Install
Both are on my radar, but not sure when I will get round to them. :)
Arif Imam said...Great help Tim. Flawless steps.
Ram said...I love the posting. I'm a little confused with the network aspect of this.
I think it would be helpful if you can please post the contents of your network configuration file (ifcfg-eth*) or the output of ifconfig -a if that is not an inconvenience to you.
I'm not sure what value it adds, as I've already explained what the settings should be. I've added it anyway, during the setup of the first node and after the cloning of the second node.
Harvey said...I can not get the udev working even after the successful runcluvfy, GI install prereq are failing that unable to find UUID for device. Using RHEL6.3 and virtualbox 4.2.16 . Have you used the same and did you get the error I am getting. Please reply.
harvey said...Sorry Just read the message about your forum so i will ask question there.
I'll answer in the forum. :)
Arif Imam said...Hi Tim, I did the dnsmasq setup couple of times yet it is not properly setup. I alwasy resolved via 127.0.0.1 not via nameserver that I put. Any help please??
Arif Imam said...I got it: This url helped me: http://mdinh.wordpress.com/2013/04/19/dns-for-rac-on-virtualbox/
Thanks Tim for these great tips/helps.
I believe you issue was because you didn't disable NAT as suggested in the article. The article you link to has a different solution to the same issue. :)
cpw said...Hi Tim
thank you very much for that, i used your other howtos as well, with success on learning things about oracle installation :)
some things that may be implemented in this howto
- db admin passwd should respect the requirements of policy
if not installation will fail
i cannot get access to the em express side after this, have you even tried this ?
Eliel said...Great post Tim, I have done this successful, i did everything like as you, but my OS is windows 7(laptop), and all the post works for me, with a bit of changes on cloning... tks a lot! u save me!!
