RACing ahead with Oracle on VMware - Part 3: Installing Oracle 10g Release 2 Clusterware on a 2-node Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition Server - Page 3

By Tarry Singh

Running installer

Step 1: Start

Step 2: Welcome.

Step 3: Choose default.

Step 4: Running checks.

Step 5: It will find the node, which launched the installer, and you will have to add more nodes.

Step 6: Next.

Step 7: Specify Network Usage.

Step 8: Cluster Configuration.

Step 9: I typically choose two for votingdisk (you can however choose more to add redundancy) and one for OCR and other for the mirror. But don't worry; the installer will guide you appropriately.

Step 10: Like I said, edit the options that suit you best, here. Although, if you do format all disks, meaning also the ASM1, ASM2 and ASM3 disks, then you will not be able to stamp them should you choose an ASM scenario, which we will do in the next article.

Step 11: Sage Advice.

Step 12: After two of these errors:

Step 13: We finally reach the install button.

Step 14: Extracting.

Step 15: Setting up CRS.

Step 17: Configuring.

Step 18: Running Assistants.

Step 19: I do get stuck up at the VIP Configuration Assistant, better known as VIPCA. It does a funny –silent installation that simply fails.

Quick check all services are running (on all nodes). Well, by this time you will be head deep in RAC and will be paranoid enough to check all nodes all the time. A real good role model for your Sysadmin!

Step 20: Never mind the warning; we will continue the rest later.

You can get the commands to run the failed Assistants/Services here:
