    rename R12.1.3 database on the same RACcluster...

    user10164595
      Hi,
      We have to rename the db and instances on 11gR2 cluster with version R12.1.3. We dont need to change the ports, or servernames. Can any of you please let me know/confirm the steps below?

      1) get bkup of DB +Apps (OS is OELlinux)
      2) run preclone steps on both layers and shutdown the apps + db
      3)Follow metalink docID - 464922.1 [Changing DBNAME and DBID of RAC Database Using NID]
      4) To update the new details, On the DB layer, Do We Edit the db tns files manually or how to handle it ?
      5) Run autoconfig on DB layer now (Not sure if we need to do now or wait till apps layer is done)
      6)Since chnges are done to db and instances, how do we get new changes populated on Apps layer? (Manually? )
      7) On the Apps layer, Edit the tns files manually or how to handle it ?
      8) Run Autoconfig on the Apps layer?

      If any person can shed some light, I will be most thankful..

      Regards,
      Nirisha

            Hi Nirisha,

            I think the following should be done:


            1) get bkup of DB +Apps (OS is OELlinux)
            2) run preclone steps on both layers and shutdown the apps + db
            3) Follow metalink docID - 464922.1 [Changing DBNAME and DBID of RAC Database Using NID]
            4) make sure the DB Contextfile reflects the new values for db_name
            5) follow Cloning Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 RAC-Enabled Systems with Rapid Clone [ID 559518.1] >> Section 8: Advanced Cloning Scenarios >> 8.1 Cloning the Database Separately
            6) for the appsTier follow: Cloning Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 RAC-Enabled Systems with Rapid Clone [ID 559518.1] >> Section 7: Applications Tier Cloning for RAC

            Hope this helps. Be sure to test first and have a valid backup.
