K-Saf wrote:-You should create ASM
I want to setup Oracle 11g DB (220.127.116.11) Standard Edition on Windows Server 2008R2 x64 bit with ASM Instance. I would appreciate if you could suggest me with the following little but important questions.
The following link from Oracle doesnt have 18.104.22.168 db version for windows x64 bit. Do a patch (which I think is a complete installation) is needed to install after installing 22.214.171.124? or I can directly install 126.96.36.199?
Secondly, I have no such experience regarding installing and setting up ASM Instance on windows. How many disks or etc is needed for ASM (as ASM disks). One of the admin guy said, he has 6 disks (2 for OS and 6 you can use for Oracle or ASM so so). Could you please suggest, how should I divide the disk partitions of what should I say no idea :(
Also, do ASM instance (diskgroups,disks) should be setup before creating DB (through dbca?)
I was thinking like:
- Installing Oracle software
- Creating ASM disks,diskgroups,instance,etc
- Creating DB (using dbca?), isnt' it?
Bundle of thanks in advance.
-After this you could be able to create DB
Patch 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 is complete installation and installed in new Oracle_Home. no need to install 220.127.116.11 first.
to download it you need to have metalink id.
ASM disks and diskgroups are depend how do you want the mirroring work. 2 ways mirroring or 3 ways.
install the ASM using grid infrastructure.
Thanks a lot.
Thank you rest of the guys too. Appreciate it.
I watched your video tutorial quickly at the moment. You installed ASM first with GI? Install Oracle software then, and DB, correct?
I am little confused about this partitioning stuff, for example, If I have 2 or 3 disks, what and how to create ? Can you please explain a bit what you did in COMPUTER MANAGEMENT ,,creating raw files/logical drives or what is this? a pre-requisite of ASM.
let say you want 2 way (NORMAL REDUNDANCY) => create 2 diskgroups.
meaning you have to create 2 or 4 or 6 ... mount points. example disk1, disk2, disk3, disk4. disk1 and disk2 will be registered to dg1, disk3 and disk4 will be dg2.
You will use the grid infrastruct software to register this disk to the respective diskgroups.
the disk can be file system, the whole hardisk, partition.
