I'am planning to install Oracle RAC 10g on Solaris 10, with ASM.
Would you like to discuss about these tasks and implementing?


Thank you!

This is the first time I've really installed RAC on server side - SPARC. And I wonder about the statement:

Note that OCFS is not required for 10g RAC. In fact, I never use OCFS for RAC systems

I do not want to use Solaris Cluster, I just want to Oracle Cluster & ASM. Would you like to explain why ASM/RawDevice were the most favorite in RAC? Have them been being faster than FileSystem? I remembered, said Oracle "ASM will make you do not wonder about tuning I/O". Is it right?

Back to the article Build your RAC Cluster 10 on Solaris 10 and iSCSI, I saw, the author used Oracle Cluster software & ASM. One first question:

- Does CRS & voting disk use ASM to manage, doesn't it?


Thank you!

Quote:
Raw files are unformatted disk partitions that can be used as one large file. Raw files have the benefit of no file system overhead, because they are unformatted partitions. Windows supports raw files, similar to UNIX. Using raw files for database or log files can have a slight performance gain. Windows 2003 has a disk manager (diskmgmt.msc) to manage all volumes. Windows 2003 also includes command line utilities (diskpart.exe) to manage volumes including raw. Oracle recommends that you use Windows volume mount points for addressing raw volumes.

>>I remembered, said Oracle "ASM will make you do not wonder about tuning I/O". Is it right?

Yes. Your correct.


>>Does CRS & voting disk use ASM to manage

No. OCR & Voting disk to manage your OCFS Or Crs cluster (shared storage) not ASM.

ASM Only to manage your asm diskgroup.

I just think, I should brief step-by-step installation RAC on Solaris 10, with ASM. And may you discuss some parts (need) to me?

The important distinction is that CRS (OCR) & voting disk can NOT use ASM to manage. OCR and voting disk are supported on NFS via a certified NAS device, shared raw partitions or CFS.

I think the reason behind that is because the cluster services must be up and running before the ASM instance can come up. If you place the OCR and the voting files in the ASM directory, the cluster serices might not come up correctly.

I hope I read that right!

Regards,
KV.

and Thank you all for the links.
Hope this discussion link gives me more tips when i do the implementation at the end of the month.

Thanks again.

Following the brief of article
Build Your Own Oracle RAC Cluster on Solaris 10 and iSCSI

Quote:

On Solaris, the UDP parameters are udp_recv_hiwat and udp_xmit_hiwat. The default values for these paramters on Solaris 10 are 57344 bytes. Oracle recommends that you set these parameters to at least 65536 bytes.

To see what these parameters are currently set to, enter the following commands:

# ndd /dev/udp udp_xmit_hiwat
57344
# ndd /dev/udp udp_recv_hiwat
57344

To set the values of these parameters to 65536 bytes in current memory, enter the following commands:

# ndd -set /dev/udp udp_xmit_hiwat 65536
# ndd -set /dev/udp udp_recv_hiwat 65536

Now we want these parameters to be set to these values when the system boots. The official Oracle documentation is incorrect when it states that when you set the values of these parameters in the /etc/system file, they are set on boot. These values in /etc/system will have no effect for Solaris 10. Please see Bug 5237047 for more information.



and

Quote:

Setting Kernel Parameters

In Solaris 10, there is a new way of setting kernel parameters. The old Solaris 8 and 9 way of setting kernel parameters by editing the /etc/system file is deprecated. A new method of setting kernel parameters exists in Solaris 10 using the resource control facility and this method does not require the system to be re-booted for the change to take effect.

Let's start by creating a new resource project.

# projadd oracle

Kernel parameters are merely attributes of a resource project so new kernel parameter values can be established by modifying the attributes of a project. First we need to make sure that the oracle user we created earlier knows to use the new oracle project for its resource limits. This is accomplished by editing the /etc/user_attr file to look like this:

#
# Copyright (c) 2003 by Sun Microsystems, Inc. All rights reserved.
#
# /etc/user_attr
#
# user attributes. see user_attr(4)
#
#pragma ident "@(#)user_attr 1.1 03/07/09 SMI"
#
adm::::profiles=Log Management
lp::::profiles=Printer Management
root::::auths=solaris.*,solaris.grant;profiles=Web Console Management,All;lock_after_retries=no
oracle::::project=oracle
..........................



Do I really not configure some kernel lines in /etc/system, such as:

set shmsys:shminfo_shmmax=12884901888
set shmsys:shminfo_shmmin=1
set shmsys:shminfo_shmseg=10
set shmsys:shminfo_shmmni=100
set semsys:seminfo_semmni=800
set semsys:seminfo_semmsl=256
set semsys:seminfo_semmns=204800
set noexec_user_stack=1
.....


One more time, I tried to set kernel by using projmod command, and did not set those above arguments in /etc/system (Solaris 10, of course, but single database), but Oracle returned problem events when it passed & checked in implementation steps. Were I wrong?

Thank you!

Solaris 10 now uses the resource control utility (prctl) to configure/set the kernel parameters.

In continuation of the original topic, i am trying to configure RAC on solaris. Due to constraints i am working this out on VMWare. As of now I have crated 2 nodes that are able to talk to each other. Before I can install oracle on these individual nodes, I am taking the help of a system admin to install and configure the Sun cluster 3.2 on the VMware.

The question that i have is how can I add a common storage on VMware that will be equally accessible to all nodes?

Any clues pls?

TIA

Good Question.

AS per my understanding; I have done rac setup (using vmware)

1/ Configure Guest OS using your VMware (I have harddisk should be SCSI0:0)
2/ Install Sun OS
3/ Install Necessary RPM Packages
4/ Create Oracle user & groups
5/ Create env. file for oracle (like ORACLE_HOME,ORACLE_BASE etc..)
6/ Configure your kernal parameters
7/ Confifgure other parameter (which is releated to oracle)

Storage:

1/ Shutdown your Guest OS
2/ Add new hard disks (It's should be independent-persistent type & Hard disk should be SCSI 1:0 etc..)
3/ Start your Guest OS
4/ Format Newly added hard disk (which you added hard disk; as per your requirement use RAC or OCRS2 etc..)

Now down your Guest OS (say Sun1); Just copy & paste your Guest OS (say Sun2)

This is setup for Vmware; Check oracle document to install rac. Smile

Thanks

Hi Babu,

Thank you for the tip. Looks like I created the clone of the guest OS a little too soon!

I will try this approach tomorrow and let you know.

Cheers!

I added a new disk to the solaris VM and cloned it.
The clone machine has created another virtual disk. But not sure how that will get shared. Will try to continue with the oracle custerware installation.

Check attached screen shot. Then you may get some idea about your vm nodes & shared storage.

PS: This is information releated to oracle rac configuration using Vmware. So this is oracle releated discussion. ./fa/6563/0/

I've fixed this above problem. That caused by simple reason: I did not create link to ssh in /usr/bin.

Fix by following on all of 2 (or more) nodes:
# mkdir -p /usr/local/bin
# ln -s -f /usr/bin/ssh /usr/local/bin/ssh

It did not verify successfully, as the Oracle document note:
Quote:

The CVU Oracle Clusterware pre-installation stage check verifies the following:

* Node Reachability: All of the specified nodes are reachable from the local node.
* User Equivalence: Required user equivalence exists on all of the specified nodes.
* Node Connectivity: Connectivity exists between all the specified nodes through the public and private network interconnections, and at least one subnet exists that connects each node and contains public network interfaces that are suitable for use as virtual IPs (VIPs).
* Administrative Privileges: The oracle user has proper administrative privileges to install Oracle Clusterware on the specified nodes.
* Shared Storage Accessibility: If specified, the OCR device and voting disk are shared across all the specified nodes.
* System Requirements: All system requirements are met for installing Oracle Clusterware software, including kernel version, kernel parameters, memory, swap directory space, temporary directory space, and required users and groups.
* Kernel Packages: All required operating system software packages are installed.
* Node Applications: The virtual IP (VIP), Oracle Notification Service (ONS) and Global Service Daemon (GSD) node applications are functioning on each node.

Dear Gent!
I'm not at RAC's machine now, but, I've executed this command

./runcluvfy.sh stage -pre crsinst -n mbfdb01,mbfdb02  -verbose


It replied as unsuccessfully at node verification.

I meant that I've not had little experiences for some situations like that. May you describe/guess about problem that caused?

Thank you very much!

I am guessing & I could be 100% off base.
Is ssh access functioning in all possible directions, even to "localhost"?

By this I mean between all possible "host names" & even ssh to myself/same host/same VIP

Dear BlachSwan!

I really do not understand your word, but I guess you wanted I must:

1 - Must SSH be configured to connect without any password?
2 - Is it (SSH) was to be used to connect local/priv/vip... correctly?

May you clarify me?

Thank you!

Yes, see below

local1 ->local2
local1 ->local1
local2 ->local1

same for priv
same for vip

Dear Gent!

Said I that I were not at RAC's machines, I'm at the other location, so that, I can not connect through LAN/VPN/... to the servers.

Of course, I must post the result of your above command as soon as possible when I come back. I hope you help me to resolve this problem as well.

Thank you!

@gent: No, those are the actual RAC's machine - M4000 Sparc, 1TB after configured by RAID 1 for share_storage
@Mash: I've tried this - comp ssa with one node at a time, but it still failed. Sad
I configure OCR & Voting disk with Cluster File System. Database file with ASM (or File System, depending to my benmarch data activities).


$ ./runcluvfy.sh comp ssa -n mbfdb01 -s /dev/rdsk/c3t600A0B80002AFEF600001C4B4A498CECd0s0

Okay,

Instead of check oracle cluster level; first of all you need to configure/check Operating system cluster.

like; ACTIVE <=> PASSIVE method; verify from os level cluser working or not.

Thanks
