Silent Installation Experiences with Oracle Database 11gR2 Real Application Clusters on Linux on System z

An IBM Redpaper publication



Abstract

This IBM® Redpaper™ publication includes information about Version 11.2.0.3 Oracle Database on Linux on IBM System z®. It describes our experiences when we installed a two-node Oracle Grid 11.2.0.3 infrastructure in silent mode with a response file on Linux. It also describes our experiences when we installed Oracle Real Application Clusters (RACs) and created a database on two nodes. The silent mode installation can be used to create multiple Linux guests that run the same level of the database. It can be used for a single instance or to create the Grid Infrastructure for a RAC database.

You can learn about optional methods to install an Oracle database on Linux on System z and to use the silent installation process in cloning in the My Oracle Support (MOS) note, How to create a Cluster by Cloning 11.2 Grid Infrastructure Home and Clusterware, Doc ID 1413846.1. We explore the following topics in this paper:


      Oracle Database 11.2.0.3 general information
    • Oracle environment
    • Oracle Grid Infrastructure silent mode installation
    • Oracle RAC silent mode installation
    • Upgrading with the latest patch set update
    • Optional methods to install and clone 11.2.0.3 Oracle Database on Linux on z
    • Cleaning up after a failed installation to perform a fresh installation

    This paper is intended for individuals who want to install a two-node Oracle Grid 11.2.0.3 infrastructure in silent mode with a response file on Linux or individuals who want to install RACs and create a database on two nodes.
