Review the checklist for storage hardware and configuration requirements for Oracle Grid Infrastructure installation.
Table 1-6 Oracle Grid Infrastructure Storage Configuration Checks
|Minimum disk space (local or shared) for Oracle Grid Infrastructure Software||
|Select Oracle ASM Storage Options||
During installation, based on the cluster configuration, you are asked to provide Oracle ASM storage paths for the Oracle Clusterware files. These path locations must be writable by the Oracle Grid Infrastructure installation owner (Grid user). These locations must be shared across all nodes of the cluster on Oracle ASM because the files in the Oracle ASM disk group created during installation must be available to all cluster member nodes.
Voting files are files that Oracle Clusterware uses to verify cluster node membership and status. Oracle Cluster Registry files (OCR) contain cluster and database configuration information for Oracle Clusterware.
|Select Grid Infrastructure Management Repository (GIMR) Storage Option||
Depending on the type of cluster you are installing, you can choose to either host the Grid Infrastructure Management Repository (GIMR) for a cluster on the same cluster or on a remote cluster.
For Oracle Standalone Cluster deployment, you can specify the same or separate Oracle ASM disk group for the GIMR.
For Oracle Domain Services Cluster deployment, the GIMR must be configured on a separate Oracle ASM disk group.
Oracle Member Clusters use the remote GIMR of the Oracle Domain Services Cluster. You must specify the GIMR details when you create the Member Cluster Manifest file before installation.
