ProcedureHow to Configure Oracle Database Access Using Solaris Volume Manager

Use this procedure to configure the Oracle database using Solaris Volume Manager.

Note –

You can run this procedure only in the global zone.

  1. Configure the disk devices for the Solaris Volume Manager software to use.

    See the Sun Cluster Software Installation Guide for Solaris OS for information about how to configure the Solaris Volume Manager software.

  2. If you use raw devices to contain the databases, run the following commands to change each raw-mirrored metadevice's owner, group, and mode.

    If you do not use raw devices, do not perform this step.

    1. If you create raw devices, run the following commands for each device on each node that can master the Oracle resource group.

      # chown oracle /dev/md/metaset/rdsk/dn
      # chgrp dba /dev/md/metaset/rdsk/dn
      # chmod 600 /dev/md/metaset/rdsk/dn

      Specifies the name of the diskset


      Specifies the name of the raw disk device within the metaset diskset

    2. Verify that the changes are effective.

      # ls -lL /dev/md/metaset/rdsk/dn
