The hardware required for this install is:
1. At least Dual Core Processor.
6GB (installs comfortably), 4GB RAM (though its slow but it should
work have patience, stop all other programs while you do this install).
4. 50GB HD.
Software required is:
1. Host Operating System is Win 7 64-bit.
2. Guest OS is CentOS 5.4 x86_64.
3. Oracle Grid Infrastructire 11gR2 linux 64-bit.
4. Oracle Database Software 11gR2 linux 64-bit.
5. VMware workstation 7.0.
I aleady have VMware Workstation and it also it has some better features as compared to VMware Server so, I am installing RAC using this VMware Workstation. These steps should also work fine on VMware server.
I assume you already have Windows 7 64-bit installed on your computer. It can be Win 7 Home, Home Premium, Professional or Ultimate. The steps should work on any version of windows. Here I am installing on Windows 7 Professional.
Download and do a typical install of VMware Workstation 7. Once installed we have to do some virtual network updates.
Open VMware from Start->All Progrms->Vmware->Vmware Workstation
On Vmware window click Edit->Virtual Network Editor and you will have the following screen.
Now we will configure some ip addresses for our machines that we are going to create later.
First of all click on vmnet2 and you will get the following screen.
Now click check box "Connect to a host virtual network adaptor and also click check box "Use local DHCP service to distribute IP addresses to the VM".
Now enter Subnet IP as 10.10.1.0 and subnet mask as 255.255.255.0
Now click on the DHCP settings button and enter the the range you want to have for this.
I have entered:
10.10.1.0 to 10.10.1.154
Do the same step for vmnet3 and vmnet4. Just change the subnet IP to 10.10.2.0 and 10.10.3.0 respectively. Also change the range for vmnet3 and vmnet4 from 10.10.2.0 to 10.10.2.154 and 10.10.3.0 to 10.10.3.154 respictively.
We would use :
192.168.1.xxx as a public ip
10.10.1.x as a private ip and
10.10.2.x as a virtual ip
Other screenshots are given below.
Now we will create a base machine. Then by copying base machine we will create our SAN machine and RAC machines. Master schema calls this base machine as a Base Brick Machine.
The only truth in this Universe is God himself.
Never ever forget him, at least he has given you eyes to see
and remeber Him like a mom who does all the work but thinks about her infant child all the time.
