Sun Cluster Quick Start Guide for Solaris OS

ProcedureHow to Create an Oracle Database

Before You Begin

Have available your Oracle installation documentation. Refer to those procedures to perform the following tasks.

  1. On phys-sun, prepare the database configuration files.

    • Place all of the database-related files (data files, redo log files, and control files) on the /oradata/10gR2 directory.

    • Within the init$ORACLE_SID.ora file or the config$ORACLE_SID.ora file, modify the assignments for control_files and background_dump_dest to specify the location of the control files.

  2. Start the creation of the database by using a utility from the following list:

    • The Oracle Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA)

    • The Oracle sqlplus(1M) command

    During creation, ensure that all of the database-related files are placed in the /oradata/10gR2 directory.

  3. Verify that the file names of your control files match the file names in your configuration files.

  4. Create the v$sysstat view.

    Run the catalog scripts that create the v$sysstat view. The Sun Cluster HA for Oracle fault monitor uses this view.
