Oracle 11gR2 RAC on Linux - testing/practice/lab purpose

Hi Gurus,

Need your assistance & help here, I've 3 servers, equipped with almost everything, for this testing/sufficient enough; cpu, memory & hard disk.

I'm looking for some guidance/assistance or link, doc or anything, which I should follow to build this RAC and then Data Gurad environment too, successfully.

This is just for practice purpose, as last time did in 2009 and it's been quite some time, forgot a lot of stuff.

Please provide some best practices, guidelines and assistance too, enable to build it correctly and successfully too.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Best regards
MK

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Many documents available in My Oracle Support, a foundational one is http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e41962.pdf.

Likewise for DataGuard, you might begin with http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/server.111/b28295/install.htm#BABFHFEI.

HTH,

thanks again folks, bottleneck removed and now trying to proceed further, here is my configuration, if any one can assist, because so many step by step links are out there, but which one good for me ... :-( kind of confused.

Here is the current status, please it'll be highly appreciated, if you can assist in any way, how to proceed further, because I'm lost some where in steps:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2625 Jan 26 13:15 Jan26
[root@rac1 temp]# rpm -qa | grep -i oracleasm
oracleasm-support-2.1.4-1.el5
oracleasm-2.6.18-238.el5xen-2.0.5-1.el5
oracleasm-2.6.18-238.el5debug-2.0.5-1.el5
oracleasm-2.6.18-238.el5-2.0.5-1.el5


[root@rac1 temp]# uname -a
Linux rac1.mydomain 2.6.32-100.26.2.el5 #1 SMP Tue Jan 18 20:11:49 EST 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root@rac1 temp]#

What needs to be done next or how even to verify, or how to proceed further too, even if you can just tell me, do these from this link or something to proceed further, I'm kind of totally lost and when trying to check iscsi & trying to configure ASM getting errors.

Please assist ... thanks a lot, struggling for quite some time.
