RACing ahead with Oracle on VMware - Part 3: Installing Oracle 10g Release 2 Clusterware on a 2-node Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition Server - Page 4

By Tarry Singh

Running VIPCA

Step 1: Start vipca.

Step 2: Public, very good.

Step 3: Edit values.

Step 4: Summary, press Finish.

Step 5: Almost done.

Step 6: Done!

Step 7: Configuration Results, Exit.

Running post cluvfy tests

Step 1: find the command in the directory.

Step 2: Run it.

Step 3: Check that all services are running and time to BACKUP your whole VM + Disks!


What we have learned here is that preparation, patience, good practices (like backing up your working environment) is VERY CRUCIAL to a successful implementation. Clusterware is a nasty tool and its installation is a bit dodgy; it is very picky and does not allow for any mistakes. Which is good! What we have also simulated is that with VMware you can build and test (as we will see in the upcoming articles) such enterprise class software and technology at practically no cost at all! I recommend you to use VMware to test it in the confinements of your test environment as it is not only cheap, but as you have seen above it is also worth the trouble. In the next article we will install a database with ASM option /and maybe with an OCFS option; we will configure our listener and take a peek at the ADS integration.
