i habe only one node for now
i am willing to install oracle 11gR2 one node option, and use asm
what option of grid infrastructure shall i use:?
-For cluster and select only the one node that i have then i add other node later ?
RAC One Node is not the single instance and would need you to use the cluster installation only. Here one node is that node where the instance would be running but you would need to include all those nodes which you want to include in your cluster. These nodes are those where the instance would be either switched over or failed over .
Please see the below While papers, i hope this will hlep.
Hope this will help,
Many thanks for help
please verify the bellow to check if that was well understood:
i have to install :
-Grid infrastructure for RAC on 2 nodes (as for a regular cluster)
-Then database installation and select one node ( so the database will run on this node only)
i can later on:
-Upgrade to normal 2 node cluster
-Relocate for maintenance our outage to the other node
is this right ?
