    Migrating Standalone Grid Infrastructure Servers to a Cluster 11.2.0.1 Linux 5.9

    oracle.dba.89

      Hey guys! Hope you all are doing good

       

      I am kinda confused migrating my 11.2.0.1 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

      http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e41961/rem_orcl.htm#CWLIN347

       

      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 11.2.0.2 or later. Mine's 11.2.0.1.

       

      From the doc

      Note:

      This procedure uses Oracle Clusterware Configuration Wizard, available with release 11.2.0.2 and later.


      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..

       

      Warm Regards

      Abhishek
