Oracle RAC 12c Installation on Oracle Virtual Box

Step-by-step Installation of Oracle RAC 12c on Oracle Virtual Box

Installation of Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.7 by clicking on the link

Linux Post Installation Steps:

1) To be consistent with the rest of the article, the following information should be set during the installation process.

#vi /etc/hosts

127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
# Public
192.168.1.101 rac1.oracle.com rac1
192.168.1.109 rac2.oracle.com rac2
# Private
192.168.0.101 rac1-priv.oracle.com rac1-priv
192.168.0.102 rac2-priv.oracle.com rac2-priv
# Virtual
192.168.1.111 rac1-vip.oracle.com rac1-vip
192.168.1.112 rac2-vip.oracle.com rac2-vip
# SCAN
192.168.1.113 rac-scan.oracle.com rac-scan

Do the Network Configuaration as shown below usin neat command as a root user

[root@localhost Server]#neat

Select etho and click on “Edit”

Click “OK” and then select DNS Tab

Then select “Devices” tab and click “Activate”.  Once it is done, select eth1

Select “eth1” and then select Edit

Then select “Devices” tab and Click “Activate” and then do the “service network restart”

2)  Once the basic installation is complete, install the following packages while logging as root user. This includes the 32 bit and 64 bit version of some packages

#cd /media/OL5.7\ x86_64\ dvd\ 20110728/Server/

rpm -Uvh binutils-2.*
rpm -Uvh compat-libstdc++-33*
rpm -Uvh elfutils-libelf-0.*
rpm -Uvh elfutils-libelf-devel-*
rpm -Uvh gcc-4.*
rpm -Uvh gcc-c++-4.*
rpm -Uvh glibc-2.*
rpm -Uvh glibc-common-2.*
rpm -Uvh glibc-devel-2.*
rpm -Uvh glibc-headers-2.*
rpm -Uvh ksh-2*
rpm -Uvh libaio-0.*
rpm -Uvh libaio-devel-0.*
rpm -Uvh libgcc-4.*
rpm -Uvh libstdc++-4.*
rpm -Uvh libstdc++-devel-4.*
rpm -Uvh make-3.*
rpm -Uvh sysstat-7.*
rpm -Uvh unixODBC-2.*
rpm -Uvh unixODBC-devel-2.*

# For OEL, use relevant versions of the following packages from your media.

rpm -Uvh oracleasm-support-2.1.7-1.el5.x86_64.rpm
rpm -Uvh kernel-debug-2.6.18-274.el5.x86_64.rpm
rpm -Uvh kernel-xen-2.6.18-274.el5.x86_64.rpm
rpm -Uvh oracleasm-2.6.18-274.el5*

3) # umount tmpfs

# mount -t tmpfs shmfs -o size=3000m /dev/shm

4) Make the setting permanent by amending the “tmpfs” setting of the “/etc/fstab” file to look like this.

tmpfs /dev/shm        tmpfs size=3000m    0  0

5) Add or amend the following lines to the “/etc/sysctl.conf” file.

fs.aio-max-nr = 1048576
fs.file-max = 6815744
kernel.shmall = 2097152
kernel.shmmax = 1054504960
kernel.shmmni = 4096
# semaphores: semmsl, semmns, semopm, semmni
kernel.sem = 250 32000 100 128
net.ipv4.ip_local_port_range = 9000 65500
net.core.rmem_default=262144
net.core.rmem_max=4194304
net.core.wmem_default=262144
net.core.wmem_max=1048586

Run the following command to change the current kernel parameters.
#/sbin/sysctl –p

6) Add the following lines to the “/etc/security/limits.conf” file.

oracle  soft nproc 2047
oracle hard nproc 16384
oracle soft nofile 1024
oracle hard nofile 65536

7) Add the following lines to the “/etc/pam.d/login” file, if it does not already exist.
session required pam_limits.so

8) Disable secure linux by editing the “/etc/selinux/config” file, making sure the SELINUX flag is set as follows.

SELINUX=disabled

Alternatively, this alteration can be done using the GUI tool (System > Administration > Security Level and Firewall). Click on the SELinux tab and disable the feature.

9) Create the new groups and users.

#groupadd -g 1000 oinstall
#groupadd -g 1200 dba
#useradd -u 1100 -g oinstall -G dba oracle
#passwd oracle

Create the directories in which the Oracle software will be installed.

#mkdir -p /u01/app/11.2.0/grid
#mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1
#chown -R oracle:oinstall /u01
#chmod -R 775 /u01/

10)  Either configure NTP, or make sure it is not configured so the Oracle Cluster Time Synchronization Service (ctssd) can synchronize the times of the RAC nodes. If you want to deconfigure NTP do the following.

# service ntpd stop
Shutting down ntpd: [ OK ]
# chkconfig ntpd off
# mv /etc/ntp.conf /etc/ntp.conf.orig
If you want to use NTP, you must add the “-x” option into the following line in the “/etc/sysconfig/ntpd” file.

##############################################
Drop root to id ‘ntp:ntp’ by default.
OPTIONS=”-x -u ntp:ntp -p /var/run/ntpd.pid”
##############################################

# mv /etc/ntp.conf.orig /etc/ntp.conf

# service ntpd restart

[root@localhost Server]# service ntpd status
ntpd (pid 4805) is running…
[root@localhost Server]#

11)  Login as the “oracle” user and add the following lines at the end of the “/home/oracle/.bash_profile” file.

# Oracle Settings
TMP=/tmp; export TMP
TMPDIR=$TMP; export TMPDIR

ORACLE_HOSTNAME=rac1.oracle.com; export ORACLE_HOSTNAME
ORACLE_UNQNAME=RAC; export ORACLE_UNQNAME
ORACLE_BASE=/u01/app/oracle; export ORACLE_BASE
GRID_HOME=/u01/app/11.2.0/grid; export GRID_HOME
DB_HOME=$ORACLE_BASE/product/11.2.0/db_1; export DB_HOME
ORACLE_HOME=$DB_HOME; export ORACLE_HOME
ORACLE_SID=RAC1; export ORACLE_SID
ORACLE_TERM=xterm; export ORACLE_TERM
BASE_PATH=/usr/sbin:$PATH; export BASE_PATH
PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$BASE_PATH; export PATH

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib:/lib:/usr/lib; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
CLASSPATH=$ORACLE_HOME/JRE:$ORACLE_HOME/jlib:$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/jlib; export CLASSPATH

if [ $USER = “oracle” ]; then
if [ $SHELL = “/bin/ksh” ]; then
ulimit -p 16384
ulimit -n 65536
else
ulimit -u 16384 -n 65536
fi
fi

Create a file called “/home/oracle/grid_env” with the following contents.

ORACLE_SID=+ASM1; export ORACLE_SID
ORACLE_HOME=$GRID_HOME; export ORACLE_HOME
PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$BASE_PATH; export PATH

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib:/lib:/usr/lib; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
CLASSPATH=$ORACLE_HOME/JRE:$ORACLE_HOME/jlib:$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/jlib; export CLASSPATH

Create a file called “/home/oracle/db_env” with the following contents.

ORACLE_SID=RAC1; export ORACLE_SID
ORACLE_HOME=$DB_HOME; export ORACLE_HOME
PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$BASE_PATH; export PATH

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/lib:/lib:/usr/lib; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH
CLASSPATH=$ORACLE_HOME/JRE:$ORACLE_HOME/jlib:$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/jlib; export CLASSPATH
Once the “/home/oracle/grid_env” has been run, you will be able to switch between environments as follows.

$ grid_env
$ echo $ORACLE_HOME
/u01/app/11.2.0/grid
$ db_env
$ echo $ORACLE_HOME
/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1
$
We’ve made a lot of changes, so it’s worth doing a reboot of the VM at this point to make sure all the changes have taken effect.

# shutdown -r now

Create Shared Disks

Shut down the “rac1.oracle.com” virtual machine using the following command.

# shutdown -h now

On RAC1, create 4 sharable virtual disks.

Click on Sata Controller second + button and select “Create New Disk”

Select VDK and click Next

 Select Fixed Size

Select Location and size for asm disk

Select Create

Go to File menu and select Virtual Media Manager

Select asm1.vdi and select modify

Select “Shareable”  and click ok

Do the same and add asm2.vdk,asm2.vdk, and asm4.vdk disks to virtual box

Start the “rac1” virtual machine by clicking the “Start” button on the toolbar. When the server has started, log in as the root user so you can configure
the shared disks. The current disks can be seen by issuing the following commands.

# cd /dev
# ls sd*
sda sda1 sda2 sdb sdc sdd sde sdf
#

Use the “fdisk” command to partition the disks sdb to sdf. The following output shows the expected fdisk output for the sdb disk.

# fdisk /dev/sdb

Building a new DOS disklabel. Changes will remain in memory only,
until you decide to write them. After that, of course, the previous
content won’t be recoverable.

The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 1305.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
(e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)

Configure ASMLib using the following command.

# oracleasm configure -i
Configuring the Oracle ASM library driver.

This will configure the on-boot properties of the Oracle ASM library
driver. The following questions will determine whether the driver is
loaded on boot and what permissions it will have. The current values
will be shown in brackets (‘[]’). Hitting <ENTER> without typing an
answer will keep that current value. Ctrl-C will abort.

Default user to own the driver interface []: oracle
Default group to own the driver interface []: dba
Start Oracle ASM library driver on boot (y/n) [n]: y
Scan for Oracle ASM disks on boot (y/n) [y]:
Writing Oracle ASM library driver configuration: done
#
Load the kernel module using the following command.

# /usr/sbin/oracleasm init
Loading module “oracleasm”: oracleasm
Mounting ASMlib driver filesystem: /dev/oracleasm
#

If you have any problems, run the following command to make sure you have the correct version of the driver.

# /usr/sbin/oracleasm update-driver
Mark the five shared disks as follows.

# /usr/sbin/oracleasm createdisk DISK1 /dev/sdb1
Writing disk header: done
Instantiating disk: done
# /usr/sbin/oracleasm createdisk DISK2 /dev/sdc1

Writing disk header: done
Instantiating disk: done
# /usr/sbin/oracleasm createdisk DISK4 /dev/sde1

#
It is unnecessary, but we can run the “scandisks” command to refresh the ASM disk configuration.

# /usr/sbin/oracleasm scandisks

#
We can see the disk are now visible to ASM using the “listdisks” command.

# /usr/sbin/oracleasm listdisks

DISK2
DISK3
DISK4
#

The shared disks are now configured for the grid infrastructure.

Clone the Virtual Machine

Later versions of VirtualBox allow you to clone VMs, but these also attempt to clone the shared disks, which is not what we want. Instead we must manually
clone the VM.

Shut down the “vboxrac1” virtual machine using the following command.

# shutdown -h now

Manually clone the vboxrac1.vdi disk using the following commands on the host server.

$ cd C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox
$ VBoxManage clonehd E:\vboxrac1\vboxrac1.vmdk E:\vboxrac2\vboxrac2.vmdk

Create the “vboxrac2” virtual machine in VirtualBox in the same way as you did for “vboxrac1”, with the exception of using an existing “vboxrac2.vdi”
virtual hard drive.

Remember to add the second network adaptor as you did on the “vboxrac1” VM. When the VM is created, attach the shared disks to this VM.

cd C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox

$ VBoxManage storageattach vboxrac2 –storagectl “SATA Controller” –port 1 –device 0 –type hdd –medium E:\vboxrac1\asm1.vdi –mtype shareable
$ VBoxManage storageattach vboxrac2 –storagectl “SATA Controller” –port 2 –device 0 –type hdd –medium E:\vboxrac1\asm2.vdi –mtype shareable
$ VBoxManage storageattach vboxrac2 –storagectl “SATA Controller” –port 3 –device 0 –type hdd –medium E:\vboxrac1\asm3.vdi –mtype shareable
$ VBoxManage storageattach vboxrac2 –storagectl “SATA Controller” –port 4 –device 0 –type hdd –medium E:\vboxrac1\asm4.vdi –mtype shareable

Start the “vboxrac2” virtual machine by clicking the “Start” button on the toolbar. Ignore any network errors during the startup.

Log in to the “vboxrac2” virtual machine as the “root” user so we can reconfigure the network settings to match the following.

hostname: rac2.oracle.com
IP Address eth1: 192.168.1.109 (public address)
Default Gateway eth1: 192.168.1.1 (public address)
IP Address eth0: 192.168.0.102 (private address)
Default Gateway eth0: none

Edit the “/home/oracle/.bash_profile” file on the “vboxrac2” node to correct the ORACLE_SID and ORACLE_HOSTNAME values.

ORACLE_SID=RAC2; export ORACLE_SID
ORACLE_HOSTNAME=rac2.oracle.com; export ORACLE_HOSTNAME

Also, amend the ORACLE_SID setting in the “/home/oracle/db_env” and “/home/oracle/grid_env” files.

Restart the “vboxrac2” virtual machine and start the “vboxrac1” virtual machine. When both nodes have started, check they can both ping all the public and private IP addresses using the following commands.

ping -c 3 rac1
ping -c 3 rac1-priv
ping -c 3 rac2
ping -c 3 rac2-priv
At this point the virtual IP addresses defined in the “/etc/hosts” file will not work, so don’t bother testing them.

Check the candidate ASM disks are visible on the second node using the “listdisks” command. If you are not able to see the DISKS then you may need to repeat the ASMLib configuration on the second node if the output of the following command is not consistent on both nodes.

# /usr/sbin/oracleasm listdisks
DISK1
DISK2
DISK3
DISK4
#

The virtual machine setup is now complete

Before moving forward you should probably shut down your VMs and take backups of them. If any failures happen beyond this point it is probably better to switch back to those backups,cleanup the shared disks and start the grid installation again. An alternative to cleaning up the shared disks is to back them up now using zip and just replace them in the event of a failure.

Install 12c Grid Infrastructure

Make sure the “rac1” and “rac2” virtual machines are started, then login to “vboxrac1″ as the oracle user and start the Oracle installer.

[root@rac1 ~]# su – oracle
[oracle@rac1 ~]$ cd sw/
[oracle@rac1 sw]$ pwd
