"Oracle Automatic Storage Management gives database administrators a storage management interface that is consistent across all server and storage platforms and is purpose-built for Oracle Database.
Oracle Automatic Storage Management Cluster File System is a general-purpose file system for single-node and cluster configurations. It supports advanced data services such as tagging and encryption.
This hands-on lab shows how to configure Oracle Automatic Storage Management and Oracle Automatic Storage Management Cluster File System for installation of an Oracle Database instance on Oracle Solaris 10 8/11.
You'll learn how to install the software, build Oracle Automatic Storage Management volumes, and configure and mount Oracle Automatic Storage Management Cluster File System file systems."
This tutorial covers the installation of Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a standalone server. In the Oracle 11g Release 2, the Grid Infrastructure contains, amongst other software:
Automatic Storage Managment (ASM)
ASM Dynamic Volume Manager (ADVM)
ASM Cluster File System (ACFS)
This lab is divided into 4 exercises.
Exercise 1: We install the ASM binaries and grid infrastructure. As part of the install we create a diskgroup of three disks called DATA. DATA will later be used to store the database data files.
Exercise 2: We use ASM Configuration Assistant (ASMCA) to create a second diskgroup called MYDG. From MYDG we create a ADVM volume called MYVOL and from that we create a ACFS file system called u02.
Exercise 3: We use the installer to install the Oracle database binaries into our new ACFS filesystem (u02).
Exercise 4: We then use the database configuration assistant to create a database with the tablespaces populating the DATA ASM diskgroup.In our setup we use "External" redundancy for our disks. This implies ... Read more...[Read More]
