Building a test RAC env(no cost , 30 day trail )

I always wanted a RAC test env , finally found a simple way to create it using just one computer .........here it goes


What all you need :



  1. one windows box (powerfull , i had 2ghz)
  2. atleast 1 gb Ram
  3. Vm ware licence (or trial 30 days) 
  4. ard 15gb disk space

What all you will get :



  1. RHEL AS4
  2. Oracle db 10.2.0.1
  3. RAC + CRS + ASM
  4. HTML DB
  5. Secure backup

Installation :


Oracle provides a image for RAC on Linux , that can be downloaded from here . Also you will need to download some addtional files from Redhat .......have downlaoded all ?? if yes , you are all set to go ....unzip everything & use runinstaller .......


Fill in the necessary details & you are done .


you will get an environment is built in a VMware Virtual Machine (VM). The VM contains a simulated Oracle Real Application Cluster running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.0 . Database storage is managed by Oracle Automatic Storage Management (ASM). The diagram summarizes the architecture deployed in the VM. Notice that the cluster hosts 2 instances RACDB1 & RACDB2 as well as 2 listeners


Just start the virtual machine , user/pass are oracle/oracle


Give it 15 mins or so to start process(automatically) & use crs_stat for checking the details ...........


All done now you have a play ground for atleast 30 days ;)enjoy
