Clone/Rename a Oracle 10g2 RAC ASM 2 node cluster under VMWARE

Hi,

I have a two node RAC cluster on ESXi 4.0.  I want to use it as a template for other clusters for use in a test environment.  The cluster uses ASM.

The VM copy part is ok, the IP address changes are ok, the renaming is not.

My guesses are to remove each node from the cluster, and add it back in with a different node name.

Does that sound right ?

Thanks

john

After you do the rename and ip address changes (don't forget the local hosts file) you will need to re-install CRS, then you should be OK.

Good Luck

Deregister the old nodes and register new nodes and if this did not work you may need to run VIPCA
