Oracle Open World - Hands-on Lab : Configuring ASM and ACFS on Solaris - Part 2

Oracle Open World - Hands-on Lab - Participant Guide

Content and Goal

"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."

Overview

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]

Oracle Open World - Hands-on Lab : Configuring ASM and ACFS on Solaris - Part 1

A quick introduction

I have been invited by Dominic Kay, Product Manager for Solaris Storage sub-systems, for an hands-on lab at OOW. For those of you who will assist at this session, next Monday, at 11:00am, in Marriott Marquis - Salon 5/6, here are the gory details to get you through this lab. For the others that won't have the opportunity to be there, we hope it will be usefull for you to set it up on your own environment. 

The reasoning behind this lab

I already posted on this blog many times, about ZFS, and all its benefits, including the deployment of Oracle Database. And Dominic found very valuable to develop the knowledge of ASM (and ACFS) deployment on Solaris, as you can look at ASM in a way, as the "ZFS" from a DBA perspective, with another interesting benefit : the ability to deploy an Oracle Database in a shared multi-nodes environment with Oracle RAC, which is what's is running on Solaris on Exadata and on this week's new Engineered System announced, SPARC Supercluster...
