Oracle RAC installation using on RHEL 6 using VMware ESX Server


As an exercise I will attempt to install Oracle RAC on RHEL 6 using VMware ESX server.

I couldnt find any manual or step by step to do it (only using RHEL5).

DO you guys see any diff./problems if I sue the manual for RHEL5 but use RHEL6 instead? Or can you point it out a good known manual that actually uses RHEL6?

There's this best practices document available at Redhat, did you check that out?

Or this Dell how to.

Or this HP document, it's for blades specifically but that shouldn't differ much from other servers.

But this is not for RAC.... Do you have anything to point for Oracle RAC/Clusterware using RHEL 6?

This document referred to above should do. It is for 11R2 RAC on Red Hat 6. It matches what you've asked for assistance with. Here is it again:

The fact that you want to install on Virtual Server should not matter.

Red Hat 6 is what Oracle will see and not the VMWare.

Hope this helps.

What do you mean it's not for RAC, it says so right in the title and if you read the document you can see they are using cluster setup...?
