Hi,
im following the steps given in www.oracle-base.com/articles/11g/oracle-db-11gr2-rac-installation-on-oel5-using-virtualbox.php
i installed the grid infrastructure successfully.But when trying to install the database i found that i have only 3.2GB of free space in my filesystem.
Is there a way i can increase this in virtual box settings?
The RAC node 'rac1.vdi' settings in the virtualbox are Virtual size=25GB Actual size=9.9GB
Thanks
Vivek

I'm afraid that I don't understand what you have, at the moment.
  • you have a computer
  • it has a hard disk whose capacity is ??? GB (how many?)
  • then you installed VirtualBox. It takes some space, so your hard disk now has "??? - VirtualBox file size" GB
  • 3.2 GB you mentioned is - what? The remaining space on your hard disk? If so, VirtualBox can't do anything about it (as far as I can tell). You need to buy a larger hard disk.
    If not, what then?

i have a virtuaBox drive of 25GB on which i have installed OEL-5.
[root@rac1 ~]# df -kh
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00
                      9.5G  5.9G  3.2G  65% /
/dev/sda1             965M   24M  892M   3% /boot
tmpfs                 1.5G     0  1.5G   0% /dev/shm
/dev/hdc              2.3G  2.3G     0 100% /media/20120805_0627

Now im trying to install Oracle software on the mount point'/' which has only 3.2GB free space(required is 4.2GB).So is there a way i can increase the size of this??

You need to create another partition on /dev/sda and create a file system on it, mount it, and use that for your DG and DB isntalaltions. You probably have about 10G unallocated space.
This is nothing to do with Oracle, you know.
