    11gR2 (10.2.0.3) RDBMS and G.I - installation question

    user130038

      Hi there

       

      I have to build two new servers with following configuration:

       

      Platform: RHEL 6.2 64bit

      Oracle RDBMS: 11gR2 (11.2.0.3)

      Grid Infra (ASM): 11gR2 (11.2.0.3)

       

      I have downloaded the files for RDBMS 11.2.0.3 but I could only find Grid Infra 11.2.0.1 download. I have found an MOS doc (ID 1362393.1) which says to download patchset which contains the “Oracle Grid Infrastructure (includes Oracle ASM, Oracle Clusterware and Oracle Restart)”.

       

      I have two questions:

       

      • If I am installing 11.2.0.3 for RDBMS, do I have to install 11.2.0.3 for Grid Infra as well OR can I also install 11.2.0.1? What is better approach?
      • Is this patchset (for Grid Infra from the above mentioned MOS) a complete installation OR I have to install 11.2.0.1 first and then patch it to 11.2.0.3?

       

      Thank you so much!
