  Oracle Database Tips by Donald Burleson

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

Creating RAC Database with DBCA

Figure 6.24 DBCA Welcome Page for RAC

Select the Real Application Clusters database option, then click Next, and the DBCA will display the Operations page. The DBCA only enables Instance Management and Services Management if there is at least one RAC database configured on your cluster.

Next, select Create A Database and then click Next, and the DBCA will display the Node Selection page.

Figure 6.25 DBCA Node Selection

The DBCA will highlight the local node by default. You must select the other nodes that you want to configure as members of your cluster database, and then click Next. The DBCA will then display the Database Templates page. If nodes that are part of your cluster installation do not appear on the Node Selection page, then you need to perform clusterware diagnostics by executing the olsnodes command.

The templates on the Database Templates page are the Data Warehouse, General Purpose, and Transaction Processing preconfigured templates. These templates include data files and specially configured options for each environment. However, the New Database template does not include data files or the specially configured options. You would use a template with data files if you want to create a preconfigured database. Select a template from which to create your cluster database.
