Requirements

To enable Oracle ASR, verify that one of the following ODA software versions are present:

  • Recommended version: the recommended release for most current support of ASR and other features is ODA 12.1.2.0.0 or later.

  • Minimal supported versions.

    Even though Oracle ASR will work with these versions, you should use the latest release to gain maximum functionality and most recent bug fixes:

    • ODA 2.8, the upgrade from ODA 2.1.0.3.0. This release includes improvements in the ASR configuration and test menu. ODA 2.8 also supports the virtual environment with ASR.

    • ODA 2.1.0.3.0, the minimal supported version.

      If you choose to use this version, then see the instructions in ASR Standalone Manager - Manual Configuration for Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) (Doc ID 1490606.1) to manually configure an external ASR Manager:

Fault Coverage

ASR uses ILOM telemetry sources to detect fault events on Oracle Database Appliance hardware. ILOM provides fault information, power and environmental, and CPU and memory fault information from the service processor.
