Oracle RAC 126.96.36.199 update templates for Oracle VM available.
By Wcoekaer-Oracle on Sep 18, 2010
very exciting - the RAC dev team just released the templates for the 188.8.131.52 patchset. This set of templates is really very, very cool - there's a lot of work that went into them. They're just superb. It allows you to create any number of nodes fully configured from one command or even just from the (py)grub command line in the VM.
It shows how doing this full stack integration / preconfiguration work is just invaluable for customers and this takes everything way beyond virtualization. These things solve problems at every layer. We package the OS with updates, the Oracle database with updates, pre configured everything, just deal with hostnames and ip addresses and you're good to go, even if you want 8 nodes or 16 nodes etc. You don't get that any where else.
anyway - enough gloating - you can see for yourself. You have to be an existing Oracle customer because this is a patch set and as such you can download the template through My Oracle Support (http://support.oracle.com). (
