Single Instance/RAC Oracle VM templates update

Superstar Saar just released a new set of Oracle VM templates. We (Oracle) just released 2 patch sets for the Oracle RDBMS - 11.2.0.4.0 and 11.2.0.2.11 (x86 and x86_64)

Simultaneously, Saar updated his Oracle VM templates to include these latest patchsets as well for both architectures (x86 and x86_64).

  • 11.2.0.4.0 with OL5
  • 11.2.0.4.0 with OL6
  • 11.2.0.2.11 with OL5
  • 11.2.0.2.11 with OL6
  • These templates can be deployed on Oracle VM using the DeployCluster tool, all you need to do is create a very simple textfile with the parameters.

    All templates default to UEK2 2.6.39-400. The templates can be used to create Single Instance, Single Instance with HA (Oracle Restart) and Oracle RAC databases.

    The options vary from ASM, NFS, OCFS2 for db files, local filesystem, no DB, Clusterware only etc.

    Full stack, download, deploy. Production RDBMS code, Production Oracle Linux.

    Simple Sample script:

    # cat netconfig.ini 
    NODE1=server3
    NODE1IP=10.0.0.4
    PUBADAP=eth0
    PUBMASK=255.255.255.0
    PUBGW=10.0.0.1
    DOMAINNAME=wimmekes.net  # May be blank
    DNSIP=10.0.0.1  # Starting from 2013 Templates allows multi value
    CLONE_SINGLEINSTANCE=yes  # Setup Single Instance
    

    and then # deploycluster -u admin -p mypassword -H localhost -M mydbvm1 -> done
