In this post I am going to discuss Step by Step Installation of Shared Application Tier File System in Multi-Node Systems Environment.
By Default Rapid Install confiures multi-node systems to use a shared Application tier file system.
Step1:You need follow some pre-install steps before you proceed with Rapid Install
- For Installation assign and allocate shared file system
- Create Application user with same UID and GUID on all application nodes involved in this configuration.
- The filesytem shared accross all nodes needs have same layout and must be mounted.
Step2: Proceed with running Rapid Install on each node and mention the mount points.
In this configuration step you need choose nodes to configure. If you want add application nodes which you required additionally click on "Add Server" under Node information screen on each additional node to be configured.Paths needs to be same on all application nodes (i.e,APPL_TOP,COMMON_TOP,10.1.2 ORACLE_HOME (TOOLS),10.1.3 ORACLE_HOME (Web).
All the below TOP's are shared
Tools ORACLE_HOME: /u01/share/apps/tech_st/ramora/10.1.2
Web ORACLE_HOME: /u01/share/apps/tech_st/ramora/10.1.3
Special Note:1)Select Shared Filesystem and primary node to enable the node being added to share the application tier file system.
2) If the Primary application node is not the same as database node , run Rapid Install on each added application node as well as on the primary application node. On Configuration screen of Rapid install select "Load the following saved configuration" and enter database connect string.
