    Convert Physical standby into 2 node RAC cluster DB


      Oracle 11gR2 ( SuSe Linux 64bit




      Not sure if this would go in the DG forum or RAC forum because it involved both.


      I was wondering if anyone knew what steps we would take to convert a physical standby into a primary for a RAC cluster. I have not found the exact procedure in the documentation nor Oracle Support.


      Here is what I have gathered:


      Convert standby database to a Primary (switchover)

      Install OCFS2

      Install ASMlib

      Install Oracle Clusterware

      Instal ASM

      Install DB software -----> problem is that I already have the software installed due to the existence of the standby

      Go through manual steps to configure RAC.


      Any advice would be appreciated.


      Thanks all.
