RAC Attack - Oracle Cluster Database at Home/Configure Node 1

< RAC Attack - Oracle Cluster Database at Home

After completing the previous lab, you should already be logged in as the oracle user on collabn1. You should already have a terminal open, where you are currently switched to the root user.

  1. As the root user, CONFIRM that the IP address if eth0 starts with 192.168.78 and that the IP address of eth1 starts with 172.16.100.

    [root@collabn1 ~]# ifconfig|grep net
     eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:0C:29:07:F5:C0
              inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
              inet6 addr: fe80::20c:29ff:fe07:f5c0/64 Scope:Link
     eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:0C:29:07:F5:CA
              inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
              inet6 addr: fe80::20c:29ff:fe07:f5ca/64 Scope:Link
              inet addr:  Mask:
              inet6 addr: ::1/128 Scope:Host
  2. Update the IP addresses by directly editing the linux network configuration files. Update the BOOTPROTO line and add the remaining lines.

    [root@collabn1 ~]# cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
    [root@collabn1 network-scripts]# gedit ifcfg-eth0
    [root@collabn1 network-scripts]# gedit ifcfg-eth1
  3. Update the DNS search domain

    [root@collabn1 network-scripts]# gedit /etc/resolv.conf
  4. As root, restart the network services by typing service network restart. Then confirm the new ip addresses with ifconfig. Also confirm the search domain by inspecting /etc/resolv.conf – if the file has reverted then edit it again. (When I wrote this lab, the change stuck after the second time I edited the file.)

  5. Edit /etc/ hosts. EDIT the line with and then ADD all of the other lines below:

    [root@collabn1 etc]# vi /etc/hosts   collabn1   collabn1-vip   collabn1-priv   collabn2   collabn2-vip   collabn2-priv  collab-scan  collab-gns
    ::1             localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6       localhost.localdomain localhost
