In today’s video we’ll discuss how to build a 2-node RAC setup using Vagrant.
This video is based on the OL8 19c RAC build, but it’s similar to that of the OL7 19c RAC build also. If you don’t have access to the patches from MOS, stick with the OL7 build, as it will work with the 19.3 base release. The GitHub repos are listed here.
If you need some more words to read, you can find descriptions of the builds here, as well as a beginners guide to Vagrant.

The video is a talk through of using the build, not an explanation of each individual step in the build, as that would be a really long video. If you just want a RAC to play with, run the build and you’ll have one. If you want to learn about the steps involved in doing a RAC build, read the scripts that make up the build. Please don’t ask for a GUI step through of a build or I’ll be forced to ask you to read Why no GUI installations anymore? 🙂
The star of today’s video is Neil Chandler, who seems to be doing a bit of plumbing! 🙂
