Perform this task to configure and create an Oracle database in an Oracle Solaris Cluster environment.
The Oracle dbca command
The Oracle sqlplus command
Note - To use raw devices such as for hardware RAID or Solaris Volume Manager for Sun Cluster, manually create the database by using a CREATE DATABASE statement. For more information, see Creating a Database with the CREATE DATABASE Statement in Oracle Database Administrator's Guide and Oracle Database SQL Language Reference.
You must create the Oracle database to be administrator managed, not policy managed. This ensures that Oracle Solaris Cluster software controls on which servers the database is started.
For detailed instructions for creating an Oracle database, see your Oracle documentation.
The way to specify to the dbca command the location of data files on a shared file system depends on your release of Oracle.
After you have created the Oracle database, go to Configuring Resources for Oracle RAC Database Instances.
