Virtual Box project with Oracle 11gR2 RAC


Start to work on the project that I was thinking for a while – build my Oracle 11gR2 RAC using iSCSI disks provided by FreeNAS all within Virtual Box. I decided to use ubuntu 64 bits host as EL4 host does not work well with Virtual Box RAC guests.

It will be few stages:

1- install FreeNAS 0.7.1 to provide storage for RAC via iSCSI.

2- install and setup EL5 guests on all 3 target RAC nodes and prepare DNS for SCAN VIPs.

3- install 11gR2 Grid Infrastructure with ASM.

4- install 11gR2 RAC RDBMS on two of the RAC nodes and create RAC database.

5- add the 3rd RAC node via GPnP service.
