i am trying to convert single node to rac using dbca. (126.96.36.199 on Linux5 )
During the template, creation i am choosing the Structure only Option ( I am not backing up the data ie., structure as well as data) as the
single instance running (TEST) is on the same cluster and i want to retain the datafile path also which is already on shared storage.
While creating db using template for rac conversion, the dbca screen doesn't proceed further after choosing the Storage.
All, i wanted to know, if this way it is possible or not.. ie without backup. The documentation says only about taking the backup along with strcuture.
I know rconfig works fine in this way; why not dbca.
