Installing Oracle Grid 11gR2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5

Preparation Steps
Login to virtual server tom as user grid.

Copy linux_11gR2_grid.zip into /u01/staging.


Unzip the file using "unzip" command: [grid@tom staging]$ unzip linux_11gR2_grid.zip

Make sure the time settings on tom and jerry are in sync: [grid@tom ~]$ date Wed Jun 9 22:17:06 PDT 2010 [grid@jerry ~]$ date Wed Jun 9 22:17:07 PDT 2010

If the time difference is more than a few seconds, the installation could fail, so you would have to adjust the time, for example: [root@tom ~]$ date +%T -s "10:13:13" [root@jerry ~]$ date +%T -s "10:13:13"

Go to /u01/staging/grid directory and start the installation by issuing: ./runInstaller

Select "Install and Configure Grid Infrastructure for a Cluster".

Select "Advanced installation".

Accept "English".

Enter values for "Cluster Name", "SCAN Name", and "SCAN Port". Also, deselect "Configure GNS" checkbox.

Click "Add" button to add jerry to the Grid Infrastructure configuration.

Click "SSH Connectivity" button, enter OS password for user "grid", and then click "Setup".

Wait for Installer to establish SSH connectivity between the nodes.

After SSH connectivity between the nodes is successfully established, click "OK".

Click "Next" to proceed to the next window.

Confirm settings on the "Network Interface Usage" screen. If necessary, make appropriate changes.

Choose "Automatic Storage Management".

Enter required Disk Group information.

For our purpose we can ignore "[INS-30011] The password entered does not conform to the Oracle recommended standards." warning. If the message box pops up, click Yes to proceed.

Select "Do not use Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI)".

Select the OS groups as indicated.

Confirm the locations for "Oracle Base" and "Software Location".

Oracle Grid 11gR2 installation starts.

"Execute Configuration scripts" window will pop up after some time.

Executing "root" scripts in the right order


a. Execute orainstRoot.sh script on tom first and wait for successful comlpetion:
[root@tom ~]$ /u01/app/oraInventory/orainstRoot.sh

b.

Execute orainstRoot.sh script on jerry only after it successfully completes on tom:


[root@jerry ~]$ /u01/app/oraInventory/orainstRoot.sh

c.

Execute root.sh script on tom first and wait for successful comlpetion:
[root@tom ~]$ /u01/app/11.2.0/grid/root.sh

d.

Execute root.sh script on jerry only after it successfully completes on tom:


[root@jerry ~]$ /u01/app/11.2.0/grid/root.sh

e.

Click "OK" on "Execute Configuration Scripts" window.

What if a root script fails?

If any of the above scripts fails, do not try to rerun. To deconfigure unsuccessful installation (as user root):

# cd /u01/app/11.2.0/grid/crs/install # perl rootcrs.pl - deconfig -force [-lastnode]

To completely uninstall (as user grid):


$ /u01/app/11.2.0/grid/deinstall/deinstall
