|Oracle Solaris Cluster Data Service for Oracle E-Business Suite Guide|
This section contains the information you need to plan your HA for Oracle E-Business Suite installation and configuration.
The configuration restrictions in the subsections that follow apply only to HA for Oracle E-Business Suite.
Caution - Your data service configuration might not be supported if you do not observe these restrictions.
The HA for Oracle E-Business Suite data service can be configured as a failover service or, when using Concurrent Parallel Processing, as a scalable service.
Oracle E-Business Suite can be deployed in the global zone or in a non-global zone.
Oracle E-Business Suite is installed by using rapidwiz onto a single-node, two-node or multi-node installation.
In a single-node installation, you install the Database, Web, Forms, Concurrent Manager, and Reports Server onto a single node.
In a two-node installation, one node contains the Database, Concurrent Manager and Reports server; and the other node contains the Forms and Web Server.
In a multi-node installation, you can specify any combination of up to five nodes to install the Database, Web, Forms, Concurrent Manager, and Reports Server.
The following are the components of an Oracle E-Business Suite configuration:
Database Server – Using rapidwiz, install the Database Server as a single database instance. The Database Server must be managed by Oracle Solaris Cluster HA for Oracle as a failover service in the cluster.
Web Server– Using rapidwiz, install the Web Server (Apache) onto a node. If this will run in the cluster, then the Web Server is managed by Oracle Solaris Cluster HA for Apache and can be deployed as either a failover or scalable service in the cluster.
Forms, Concurrent Manager, and Reports Server – Depending on how you install using rapidwiz, you can install the Forms, Concurrent Manager, and Reports Server onto the same node or onto different nodes. All of these components are managed by HA for Oracle E-Business Suite as a failover service in the cluster.
Parallel Concurrent Processing – HA for Oracle E-Business Suite support for Parallel Concurrent Processing requires a minimum of Oracle E-Business Suite version 12.0. When using rapidwiz, you must specify the physical hostnames that will be used within the Parallel Concurrent Processing deployment.
The Oracle E-Business Suite files are the data files that are created when you install Oracle E-Business Suite using the rapidwiz installer.
The Oracle E-Business Suite files must be placed on shared storage as either a cluster file system or a highly available local file system. The following tables show the mount points and acceptable file system types.
The configuration requirements in this section apply only to HA for Oracle E-Business Suite.
Caution - If your data service configuration does not conform to these requirements, the data service configuration might not be supported.
Solaris zones provide a means of creating virtualized operating system environments within an instance of the Solaris OS. Solaris zones allow one or more applications to run in isolation from other activity on your system. For complete information about installing and configuring Solaris zones, refer to System Administration Guide: Oracle Solaris Containers-Resource Management and Oracle Solaris Zones.
You must determine which Solaris zone Oracle E-Business Suite will use. Oracle E-Business Suite can run within the global zone or in a non-global zone configuration.
