    Implementing RAC with CentOS5.9

    kvinodhbabu
      Hi,

      I have finished all per-requisites of RAC configuration on my Windows server 2008.

      Now i have started grid installation when i run sh runInstaller desktop screen flickers where the Next and Cancel Button appears.

      Top page looks ok. But the bottom page does t even allow me click on buttons i am not sure if its something with the CENTOS5.

      If i have a asked a dumb question i am sorry about that.

      Thanks,
      Vinodh

          Please cite the source that said CentOS is a supported platform for Oracle. I don't see it in the fine Installation Guide: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e24322/pre_install.htm#CIHFICFD

            huh tat s a valid point but still i found few articles on RAC implementation with CentOS as Operating system.

            Anyways i will see if i can get RHEL5.5 but still i cannot use yum and directly install the records because it might ask for registration.

            Thanks,

              it was problem with the screen resolution settings. It was my mistake to avoid guestaddtions part of my installation task.

              After doing that it works fine so OS is not a problem here.

                Guest additions? Is this being installed under Virtual Box? If so, that was another critical piece of information you left out ....

                  You could use Oracle Linux. Fully RH compatible. Purchase price is US$0.00. Their free public yum server requires no registration. The only thing you pay actual money for is if you want a support contract, to allow you to actually open a service request.

                    Hello,

                    It just the problem of screen resolution. Cancel OUI window, modify resolution of you machine and again start OUI(runInstaller).

                    Thanks,
