Course Description

Welcome to this Real Application Cluster couse

During these moments that we spend together, I have only one goal, that you enjoy setting a professional high-tech environment. Grid Infrastructure 12c, data base 11gR2 both products were installed in graphic and silent mode.

All these products involve the execution of different tasks defined below.

The course have been produced with videos, you'll also listen my voice. I will give all explanations and examples relevant to the successfull anderstanding of this course.

In addition, I will make available the "roadmap" that I used throughout the course with all the querys and operating system commands, this way you can use it to copy and paste into your environment.

The course is about 4 hours and you'll find the following chapters:

1 Installation and setting of Oracle VirtualBox, creation of RAC1 Virtual Machine (VM)

2 Installation of Oracle linux 64 bits operating system

3 Setting network cards and the /etc/hosts file

4 Tune RAC1 with yum: Kernel parameters, packages dependencies, user and groups

5 Clone RAC1 to RAC2, the second node of our Oracle RAC cluster

6 Creation of the shared disks from virtual box and present them to both racs

7 Creation of ASM disk for subsequent creation of diskgroups

8 Installation of the binaries GI 12c

Set the ssh connectivity between node 1 and node 2

Run runcluvfy to get all the check results

At this step if all is good, you have your first cluster 12c !

9 Installation of GI 12c silent mode

10 Installing Oracle 11gR2 binaries (graphic and silent)

11 Creating Database 11gR2 data (graphic and silent)

12 Learn all the command available to manage your cluster

With this course, you have in your hand a powerful environment, created with the last version of Oracle products and for a very low cost. You can simulate a production environment at home with your personal computer.

Instructor Biography

Luis Diaz, Database dba since 2005

I was born in Spain and then travel to Paris where I start studying databases.

Then I go back to Spain and since 2005 I work exclusivly as Oracle dba. During several years I work in diferents environments and I touch a lot of Oracle technology. Here is part of this knowledge. Most recently, I work with Oracle 12c grid version, Oracle dataguard 11g and some other technologies as Rman o Oracle FlashBack.

Citare aqui unas de las operaciones que realize con exito:

- Mantenimiento de las instancias de Oracle

- Migración Grid control de 10G a 11G

- Migración de datos de un diskgroup a otro. (Cambiar discos de cabina)

- Copia de seguridad diseño de las políticas de recuperación de las bases de datos

- Instalación diseño e instalación de nuevo RAC entornos ASM ersión 11gR2

- Seguimiento con las herramientas de monitoring de OVO, Grid Control y Ganglia

- Creación de nuevas alarmas para OVO

- Restoración de bases de datos con RMAN duplicate

- Formación de un equipo de desarolladores con Oracle FlashBack. Simulamos perdidas de datos tras una release y recuperamos los datos perdidos gracias a FB
