Grid Infrastructure version: 184.108.40.206
Platform : OEL 6.3
We are going to install Grid Infrasture and then install RDBMS Software.
For role separation , we are creating grid user and oracle user.
Following will be the ORACLE_BASE and ORACLE_HOME for Grid Infrastructure:
Following will be the ORACLE_BASE and ORACLE_HOME for RDBMS Home
I have two questions
Question1. Will I get the below error during GI installation with the above setting ?
[NS-32026] The Software Location specified should not be under Oracle base location.
CAUSE: Grid Infrastructure for a Cluster installation will assign root ownership to all parent directories of clusterware software location. As a result, all named directories in the software location path will acquire root ownership. This may create problems for subsequent installations into the same Oracle base
If I understand correctly, Once the Grid is installed successfully, the whole filesystem under the mount point /u01 will be owned by root.
If this is the case , when I have to install RDBMS Software later, I need to manually change the permission of /u01/app/oracle and all child directories inside it to oracle:oinstall. Right ?
Similair ORACLE_BASE, ORACLE_HOME settings for grid seems to work for this guy.
The OFA compliant path for the Oracle base is /u01/app/<user>, where user is the name of the software installation owner.
So, I would make grid ORACLE_BASE = /u01/app/grid
To avoid NS-32026 error , you can set grid ORACLE_HOME= /u01/app/220.127.116.11/grid
