  Oracle Database Tips by Donald Burleson

Oracle10g Grid Computing with RAC
Chapter 6 - Install, Configure and Database Creation

Oracle RAC software Installation

When the OUI displays the Welcome page, click Next, and the OUI displays the Specify File Locations page as seen in Fig. 6.17. In this example, we have selected the Oracle Home to be '/u01/app/oracle/product/10g/db_1'. The Source field on the Specify File Locations page is pre-populated with the path to the file Oracle Database 10g products.xml.

Note:  you must not install Oracle Database 10g with RAC software into the same home in which you installed the CRS software.

Figure 6.17 Specify Oracle Home

Next, you get the Specify Hardware Cluster Installation Mode page, where you would select an installation mode. The Cluster Installation mode is selected by default when the OUI detects that you are performing this installation on a cluster. In addition, the local node is always selected for the installation. Select additional nodes that are to be part of this installation session. In this example, we have three nodes in the cluster.

Figure 6.18 Specify Cluster Nodes

When you click Next on the Specify Hardware Cluster Installation page, the OUI verifies that the Oracle home directory is writable on the remote nodes and that the remote nodes are operating. The OUI also re-validates user equivalence.

Next, on the Install Type page you can select Enterprise Edition, Standard Edition, or Custom Install type.
