4 Content Specific to Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2.0.1)

The following content is specific to release 11.2.0.1:

4.1 Preinstallation Requirements for Release 11.2.0.1

Refer to the installation guides for the preinstallation requirements. Additional preinstallation requirements include the following:

4.1.1 Setting Kernel Parameters on Oracle Solaris 10

On Oracle Solaris 10, setting kernel parameters in /etc/system is deprecated. However, if you set shared memory using project settings, then you may encounter the following error:

ORA-27102: out of memory

Workaround:

Set memory, both by using allocations with project commands, and continue to provide memory settings in /etc/system. For example,

To set memory to 4 GB:

  1. Open /etc/system with a text editor, and set the following values:

    set shmsys:shminfo_shmmax=4294967295
    set shmsys:shminfo_shmmni=100 
    set shmsys:shminfo_shmseg=10
    set semsys:seminfo_semmni=70
    set semsys:seminfo_semmns=200
    set shmsys:shminfo_shmmin=1
    
  2. Set project memory settings in the kernel similar to the following:

    $ prctl -n project.max-shm-memory -r -v 4G -i project 3 
    $ projmod -sK "project.max-shm-memory=(privileged,4G,deny)" default
    
  3. Create the project in /etc/project for the Oracle Database installation owner, oracle, and OSDBA group, dba, using projects -l so that the value persists after system restarts:

    % projects -l ... ... OASB projid : 3 comment: "" users : oracle groups :
    dba attribs: project.max-shm-memory=(privileged,4294967295,deny)
    

This issue is tracked with Oracle bug 8929233.

4.2 Installation, Configuration, and Upgrade Issues for Release 11.2.0.1

Review the following sections for information about issues that affect Oracle Database installation, configuration, and upgrade:

4.2.1 Oracle ASMFS Listed As a Storage Option When Installing Oracle RAC Database

If you install an Oracle RAC database after installing Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a cluster, then the Specify Database Storage Options screen indicates that "Automatic Storage Manager File System (ASMFS)" is a storage option for Oracle Database files.

Workaround:

This issue is tracked with Oracle bug 9032054.

4.2.2 Error When Installing Oracle Grid Infrastructure with the Grid Naming Service (GNS) and the OCR and Voting Disks Stored on Oracle ASM

When installing Oracle Grid Infrastructure for Oracle Database 11g Release 2 with GNS and the OCR and voting disks on Oracle ASM, root.sh may fail with error

PROT-1: Failed to initialize ocrconfig

The failing command is ocrconfig -upgrade user group, and TNS-12560 can be found in sqlnet log file.

Workaround:

Check the /etc/group entry for the group being used by OCR, temporarily reduce the number of users listed for this group, and restart the installation.

This issue is tracked with Oracle bug 8979500.

4.2.3 Upgrading Oracle RAC from Oracle9i to Oracle Database 11g Release 2 (11.2)

When you install Oracle Grid Infrastructure (Oracle Clusterware and Oracle ASM) on clusters created using Sun Clusterware and Oracle9i Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC), then an issue on some systems may prevent the installer from detecting which nodes are cluster members of the existing cluster.

Workaround:

If the installer does not detect all nodes of the existing cluster, then you must select manually all the nodes where Oracle9i Oracle RAC is installed. If you select only a subset of the nodes that are part of your existing Oracle 9i Oracle RAC installation, then the existing Oracle 9i Oracle RAC installation will have problems.

This issue is tracked with Oracle bug 9040596.

4.2.4 Incorrect SSH Location on Installation Media

6.3.5 CVU IPMP Group Consistency Check Failure

If you install Oracle Grid Infrastructure on a cluster that has Active-Passive IPMP configured, then the prerequisite check for Oracle Solaris IPMP group fail-over consistency may fail.

Workaround:

Ignore this failure and perform the following steps:

  1. After installation, log in as root and use the following command syntax to add the standby NICs to the network resource:

    'srvctl modify nodeapps -S
     subnet/netmask[/if1[/if2|...]'
    

    where if1 and if2 are the IPMP NIC names.

  2. Classify all network interfaces in the IPMP group as public by using the following command syntax:

    oifcfg setif -global if_name/subnet:public
    

    where if_name is the interface name and subnet is the subnet.

    For example:

    # srvctl modify nodeapps -S '192.0.2.0/255.255.255.0/eth3|eth5'
    # oifcfg setif -global eth3/192.0.2.0:public
    # oifcfg setif -global eth5/192.0.2.0:public
    

    Note:

    The default IP address of the standby NIC is 0.0.0.0. When you run the oifcfg command to classify the standby NIC as public, you must set the subnet to the same subnet as the active NIC.

This issue is tracked with Oracle bug 12939432.
