9.2 Recommended Postinstallation Tasks → Oracle recommends that you complete the following tasks as needed after installing Oracle Grid Infrastructure: Tuning Semaphore Parameters Create a Fast Recovery Area Disk Group Checking the SCAN Configuration Downloading and Installing the ORAchk Health Check Tool Setting Resource Limits for Oracle Clusterware and Associated Databases and Applications
9.1 Required Postinstallation Tasks → Download and install patch updates. See the My Oracle Support website for required patch updates for your installation. To download required patch updates: Use a Web browser to view the My Oracle Support website: https://support.oracle.com Log in to My Oracle Support. Note: If you are not a My Oracle Support registered user, then click Register for My Oracle Support and register. On the main My Oracle
9 Oracle Grid Infrastructure Postinstallation Procedures → This chapter describes how to complete the postinstallation tasks after you have installed the … Postinstallation Tasks Recommended Postinstallation Tasks Using Earlier Oracle Database Releases with Oracle Grid
C.5.1 About the Postinstallation Configuration File → When you run a silent or response file installation, you provide information about your servers in a response file that you otherwise provide manually during a graphical user interface installation. However, the response file does not contain passwords for user accounts that configuration assistants require after software installation is complete. The configuration assistants are started with a script
8.2 Required Postinstallation Tasks → Perform the following task after completing Oracle Database installation.
8.3 Recommended Postinstallation Tasks → Oracle recommends that you perform the tasks described in the following section after completing an installation: Creating a Backup of the root.sh Script Creating and Configuring Additional Operating System Accounts Setting Language Preferences for Client Connections Guidelines for Setting Semaphore Parameters Creating a Fast Recovery Area Disk Group Enabling and Disabling Database Options Downloading
C.5 Postinstallation Configuration Using a Response File → Use the following sections to create and run a response file configuration after installing Oracle software.
C.5.2 Running Postinstallation Configuration Using a Response File → To run configuration assistants with the configToolAllCommands script: Create a response file using the syntax filename.properties. For example: $ touch cfgrsp.properties Open the file with a text editor, and cut and paste the password template, modifying as needed. Example C-1 Password response file for Oracle Grid Infrastructure installation for a cluster Oracle Grid Infrastructure requires passwords
9.3 Using Earlier Oracle Database Releases with Oracle Grid Infrastructure → Review the following sections for information about using earlier Oracle Database releases with Oracle Grid Infrastructure 12 c Release 1 (12.1) installations: General Restrictions for Using Earlier Oracle Database Versions Managing Server Pools with Earlier Database Versions Using ASMCA to Administer Disk Groups for Earlier Database Versions Making Oracle ASM Available to Earlier Oracle Database
9.3.6 Using the Correct LSNRCTL Commands → To administer local and SCAN listeners using the lsnrctl command, set your $ORACLE_HOME environment variable to the path for the Oracle Grid Infrastructure home (Grid home). Do not attempt to use the lsnrctl commands from Oracle home locations for previous releases, as they cannot be used with the new release.
9.2.1 Tuning Semaphore Parameters → Use the following guidelines only if the default semaphore parameter values are too low to accommodate all Oracle processes: Note: Oracle recommends that you refer to the operating system documentation for more information about setting semaphore parameters. Calculate the minimum total semaphore requirements using the following formula: 2 * sum (process parameters of all database instances on the
9.2.3 Checking the SCAN Configuration → The Single Client Access Name (SCAN) is a name that is used to provide service access for clients to the cluster. Because the SCAN is associated with the cluster as a whole, rather than to a particular node, the SCAN makes it possible to add or remove nodes from the cluster without needing to reconfigure clients. It also adds location independence for the databases, so that client configuration does
9.3.2 Managing Server Pools with Earlier Database Versions → Starting with Oracle Grid Infrastructure 12 c, Oracle Database server categories include roles such as Hub and Leaf that were not present in earlier releases. For this reason, you cannot create server pools using the Oracle RAC 11 g version of Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA). To create server pools for earlier release Oracle RAC installations, use the following procedure: Log in as the Oracle
9.4 Modifying Oracle Clusterware Binaries After Installation → After installation, if you need to modify the Oracle Clusterware configuration, then you must unlock the Grid home. For example, if you want to apply a one-off patch, or if you want to modify an Oracle Clusterware configuration to run IPC traffic over RDS on the interconnect instead of using the default UDP, then you must unlock the Grid home. Note: Before relinking executables, you must shut down
9.3.4 Using ASMCA to Administer Disk Groups for Earlier Database Versions → Use Oracle ASM Configuration Assistant (ASMCA) to create and modify disk groups when you install earlier Oracle databases and Oracle RAC databases on Oracle Grid Infrastructure installations. Starting with Oracle Database 11 g Release 2 (11.2), Oracle ASM is installed as part of an Oracle Grid Infrastructure installation, with Oracle Clusterware. You can no longer use Database Configuration Assistant
9.3.5 Pinning Cluster Nodes for Oracle Database Release 10.x or 11.x → When Oracle Clusterware 12 c Release 1 (12.1) is installed on a cluster with no previous Oracle software version, it configures the cluster nodes dynamically, which is compatible with Oracle Database Release 11.2 and later, but Oracle Database 10 g and 11.1 require a persistent configuration. This process of association of a node name with a node number is called pinning. Note: During an upgrade,
9.2.4 Downloading and Installing the ORAchk Health Check Tool → Download and install the ORAchk utility to perform proactive heath checks for the Oracle software stack. ORAchk replaces the RACCheck utility, extends health check coverage to the entire Oracle software stack, and identifies and addresses top issues reported by Oracle users. ORAchk proactively scans for known problems with Oracle products and deployments, including the following: Standalone Oracle
9.3.3 Making Oracle ASM Available to Earlier Oracle Database Releases → To use Oracle ASM with Oracle Database releases earlier than Oracle Database 12 c, you must use Local ASM or set the cardinality for Flex ASM to ALL, instead of the default of 3. After you install Oracle Grid Infrastructure 12 c, if you want to use Oracle ASM to provide storage service for Oracle Database releases that are earlier than Oracle Database 12 c, then you must use the following command
9.2.2 Create a Fast Recovery Area Disk Group → During installation, by default you can create one disk group. If you plan to add an Oracle Database for a standalone server or an Oracle RAC database, then you should create the Fast Recovery Area for database files. 126.96.36.199 About the Fast Recovery Area and the Fast Recovery Area Disk Group The Fast Recovery Area is a unified storage location for all Oracle Database files related to recovery. Database
9.2.5 Setting Resource Limits for Oracle Clusterware and Associated Databases and Applications → After you have completed Oracle Grid Infrastructure installation, you can set resource limits in the Grid_home /crs/install/s_crsconfig_ nodename _env.txt file. These resource limits apply to all Oracle Clusterware processes and Oracle databases managed by Oracle Clusterware. For example, to set a higher number of processes limit, edit the file and set CRS_LIMIT_NPROC parameter to a high value.
