I am a really beginner in the Oracle VM world.
First I do an installation of Oracle VM server and VM Manager. The OVM manager will be hold in an seperate Oracle DB.
Yes the setup was okay and now I am ready to implement some virtual machines.
For test purposes I try to build an RAC 220.127.116.11 on the following hardware.
It is a single server i5 core 3Ghz, 4 local SATA disks, one network adapter and 32 GB RAM.
So I have a local storage pool with 3 data repositories each 500GB.
Could I implement a RAC environment on this hardware?
How is it possible to create "shared disks" for RAC? Do I have to setup iSCSI or OCFS2? Is this possible on the local disks may be the data repositories?
What about the VNIC's? I need Public, Privat and so on. What will be the best setup for this? VLAN oder VNIC's?
in advance many thanks
Since one can install Oracle RAC on a single notebook with 1 NIC + local disk, using 2 virtual machines on a tier 2 hypervisor, I would be the most surprised if OVM couldnt handle it.
However as im not familiar at all with OVM, all i can come up with is a blog post that i have just googled:
