Follow the high-level instructions in this section to install Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a standalone server and configure it for an existing Oracle Database.

Oracle Restart can manage resources from the same release and releases up to one version lower than Oracle Restart. For instance, you can install Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a standalone server 19c (Oracle Restart) to provide services for Oracle Database 19c and Oracle Database 18c. Earlier Oracle Database releases can coexist on the same server without being managed by Oracle Restart.
  1. Grid infrastructure is use to create and manage ASM instance and oracle restart feature. Grid Download Linkhttps://www.oracle.com/database/technologies/oracl.
  2. In this case, I chose to run orainstRoot.sh and root.sh on all nodes automatically. For AIX platform, I suggest that you do NOT choose automatically run configuration scripts, try run them manually. Oracle 19c Grid Infrastructure Installation - 18 - 01.

3.1 Using Rapid Home Provisioning to Install Oracle Grid Infrastructure

Rapid Home Provisioning is a method of deploying software homes to any number of nodes in a data center from a single cluster, and also facilitates patching and upgrading software.

With Rapid Home Provisioning, you create, store, and manage templates of Oracle homes as images (called gold images) of Oracle software, such as databases, middleware, and applications. You can make a working copy of any gold image, and then you can provision that working copy to any node in the data center.

You store the gold images in a repository located on a Rapid Home Provisioning Server, which runs on one server in the Rapid Home Provisioning Server cluster that is a highly available provisioning system. With a single command, Rapid Home Provisioning can provision new Grid homes to servers for Oracle Grid Infrastructure 11.2.0.4, 12.1.0.2 and 12.2. There are no prerequisites for the target servers. You do not need to install any client or agent software on the servers before the provisioning the Oracle Grid Infrastructure software.

3.2.1 About Cluster Verification Utility Fixup Scripts on Linux and UNIX

During installation on Linux and UNIX platforms, for certain prerequisite check failures, you can click Fix & Check Again to generate a fixup script.

The installer detects when the minimum requirements for an installation are not met, and creates shell scripts, called Fixup scripts, to finish incomplete system configuration steps. If the installer detects an incomplete task, then it generates a Fixup script (runfixup.sh). You also can have CVU generate Fixup scripts before installation.

Fixup scripts do the following:

  • If necessary, set kernel parameters to values required for successful installation, including:

    • Shared memory parameters.

    • Open file descriptor and UDP send/receive parameters.

  • Create and set permissions on the Oracle Inventory (central inventory) directory.

  • Create or reconfigure primary and secondary group memberships for the installation owner, if necessary, for the Oracle Inventory directory and the operating system privileges groups.

  • Set shell limits if necessary to required values.

You can run the script after you click Fix and Check Again. You are prompted by the installer to run the fixup script as the root user in a separate session or you can specify through the installer interface that the scripts should be run automatically. You must run the script on all the nodes specified by the installer.

Modifying the contents of the generated fixup script is not recommended.

Note:

Using fixup scripts does not ensure that all the required prerequisites for installing Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a cluster and Oracle RAC are satisfied. You must still verify that all the requirements listed inPreparing Your Clusterare met to ensure a successful installation.

3.2.2 Installing Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a New Cluster

Complete this procedure to install Oracle Grid Infrastructure (Oracle Clusterware and Oracle Automatic Storage Management) on your cluster.

Starting with Oracle Grid Infrastructure 12c Release 2 (12.2), the installation media is replaced with a zip file for the Oracle Grid Infrastructure installer. Run the installation wizard after extracting the zip file into the target home path.

At any time during installation, if you have a question about what you are being asked to do, or what input you are required to provide during installation, click the Help button on the installer page.

You should have your network information, storage information, and operating system users and groups available to you before you start installation, and you should be prepared to run root scripts.

As the user that owns the software for Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a cluster (grid)on the first node, install Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a cluster. Note that the installer uses Secure Shell (SSH) to copy the binary files from this node to the other nodes during the installation. During installation, in the Cluster Node Information window, about you specify the nodes in your cluster, you can click SSH Connectivity and the installer configures SSH connectivity between the specified nodes for you.

Note:

These installation instructions assume you do not already have any Oracle software installed on your system. If you have already installed Oracle ASMLIB, then you will not be able to install Oracle ASM Filter Driver (Oracle ASMFD) until you uninstall Oracle ASMLIB. You can use Oracle ASMLIB instead of Oracle ASMFD for managing the disks used by Oracle ASM, but those instructions are not included in this guide.

To install the software for Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a cluster:

  1. As the grid user, download the Oracle Grid Infrastructure image files and unzip the files into the Grid home. For example:

    Note:

    • You must extract the zip image software into the directory where you want your Grid home to be located.

    • Download and copy the Oracle Grid Infrastructure image files to the local node only. During installation, the software is copied and installed on all other nodes in the cluster.

  2. Configure the shared disks for use with Oracle ASM Filter Driver:
    1. Log in as the root user and set the environment variable $ORACLE_HOME to the location of the Grid home and the environment variable $ORACLE_BASE to a temporary location.
      You set $ORACLE_BASE to a temporary location to avoid creating diagnostic or trace files in the Grid home before the Oracle Grid Infrastructure installation.
    2. Use Oracle ASM command line tool (ASMCMD) to provision the disk devices for use with Oracle ASM Filter Driver.
    3. Verify the device has been marked for use with Oracle ASMFD.
    4. Unset the ORACLE_BASE environment variable.
  3. Start the Oracle Grid Infrastructure wizard by running the following command:

    For example, on Oracle Linux you perform the following steps (note that for clarity, the examples show the current user, node and directory in the prompt):

    1. As the oracle user on racnode1, open a terminal window, and enter the following commands:

    2. Enter the password for the root user, and then enter the following command to run the first script on racnode1:

    3. After the orainstRoot.sh script finishes on racnode1, open another terminal window, and as the oracle user, enter the following commands:

    4. Enter the password for the root user, and then enter the following command to run the first script on racnode2:

    5. After the orainstRoot.sh script finishes on racnode2, go to the terminal window you opened in part a of this step. As the root user on racnode1, enter the following commands to run the second script, root.sh:

      Press Enter at the prompt to accept the default value.

      Note:

      You must run the root.sh script on the first node and wait for it to finish. You can run root.sh scripts concurrently on all other nodes except for the last node on which you run the script. Like the first node, the root.sh script on the last node must be run separately.

    6. After the root.sh script finishes on racnode1, go to the terminal window you opened in part c of this step. As the root user on racnode2, enter the following commands:

      After the root.sh script completes, return to the OUI window where the Installer prompted you to run the orainstRoot.sh and root.sh scripts. Click OK.

      The software installation monitoring window reappears.

  23. Continue monitoring the installation until the Finish window appears. Then click Close to complete the installation process and exit the installer.

Caution:

After installation is complete, do not remove manually or run cron jobs that remove /tmp/.oracle or /var/tmp/.oracle directories or their files while Oracle software is running on the server. If you remove these files, then the Oracle software can encounter intermittent hangs. Oracle Clusterware installations can fail with the error:

CRS-0184: Cannot communicate with the CRS daemon.

3.2.3 Completing the Oracle Clusterware Configuration

After you have installed Oracle Clusterware, verify that the node applications are started.

Depending on which operating system you use, you may have to perform some postinstallation tasks to configure the Oracle Clusterware components properly.

To complete the Oracle Clusterware configuration on Oracle Linux:

  1. As the grid user on the first node, check the status of the Oracle Clusterware targets by entering the following command:

    This command provides output showing if all the required cluster services, such as gsd, ons, and vip, are started on the nodes of your cluster.

  2. In the displayed output, you should see the Oracle Clusterware daemons are online for each node in the cluster.

    If you see that one or more Oracle Clusterware resources are offline, or are missing, then the Oracle Clusterware software did not install properly.

Note:

Avoid changing host names after you complete the Oracle Clusterware installation, including adding or deleting domain qualifications. Nodes with changed host names must be deleted from the cluster and added back with the new name.
