After you install, register, and configure Support for Oracle RAC, verify the installation and configuration. Verifying the Support for Oracle RAC installation and configuration determines whether resources and resource groups for Support for Oracle RAC behave as required.
Offline-restart dependencies between resources ensure that, if the independent resource is about to be taken offline, the dependent resource is taken offline first. The dependent resource remains offline until the independent resource is restarted. The procedures in this section explain how to verify that these dependencies are correctly set. For detailed information about offline-restart dependencies, see the description of the resource_dependencies_offline_restart resource property in the r_properties (5) man page.
Verifying the installation and configuration of Support for Oracle RAC involves the following tasks:
Verifying the configuration of the Support for Oracle RAC framework resource group and, if used, verifying the configuration of the multiple-owner volume-manager framework resource group. See How to Verify the Configuration of the Support for Oracle RAC Framework Resource Group and How to Verify the Configuration of the Multiple-Owner Volume-Manager Framework Resource Group.
Verifying the configuration of storage resources for Oracle Database files. See How to Verify the Configuration of Storage Resources for Oracle Database Files.
Verifying the configuration of resources for Support for Oracle RAC database instances. See How to Verify the Configuration of Resources for Support for Oracle RAC Database Instances.
Verifying the correct behavior for shutdown and booting of the cluster. See How to Verify the Correct Behavior for Shutdown and Booting of the Cluster.
