Hey guys! Hope you all are doing good
I am kinda confused migrating my 220.127.116.11 Oracle Restart installation to a RAC two node (aim is to add a second node along with migrating the existing one to the cluster pool).
Running on OEL 5.9 x86_64
I see that we can switch the RAC mode from 'off' to 'on' and use the existing clusterware binaries. I am trying to follow the below Oracle documentation for linux
6.2 Migrating Standalone Grid Infrastructure Servers to a Cluster
In this document, I have completed step 5 which is de-configuring Oracle Restart. All smooth.
The problem starts here. Next step 6 says
Prepare the server for Oracle Clusterware configuration, as described in this document. In addition, choose if you want to install Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a Cluster in the same location as Oracle Restart, or in a different location:
You would have noticed that there's a note which says that the process uses config wizard which is available with rel 18.104.22.168 or later. Mine's 22.214.171.124.
From the doc
So how do I proceed from here? Can the existing binaries be used? If yes, how? Can't find much information. Thanks for your valuable time.
I hope I am not missing anything..
