    More explaination on RAC/Linux ip procedure

    Azhar MZ

      Can someone explain in depth more on this? From oracle-base.com article on RAC installation. I understand the rest, but I just don't get this one. I do able to install single instance oracle on Oracle Linux, though. Thanks.

      =================================

      To be consistent with the rest of the article, the following information should be set during the installation:

      • hostname: ol5-112-rac1.localdomain
      • IP Address eth0: 192.168.0.101 (public address)
      • Default Gateway eth0: 192.168.0.1 (public address)
      • IP Address eth1: 192.168.1.101 (private address)
      • Default Gateway eth1: none

          This is a very simple setup of RAC implementation...

           

          However this network stack states:

           

          hostname: ol5-112-rac1.localdomain

          This is the node's hostname, i.e server's name

           

          IP Address eth0: 192.168.0.101 (public address)

          Default Gateway eth0: 192.168.0.1 (public address)

          This is the primary nic for this node as it includes the gateway, and will be exposed to the users over your network

           

          IP Address eth1: 192.168.1.101 (private address)

          Default Gateway eth1: none

          This is the secondary nic in server which will be used for SAN or storage connection, you may also consider it as internal nic which will only be used by the servers for communication

           

          Hope this helps!

            The private address/ip will be used for internode communication as the cluster interconnect. It will be not available to clients.

             

            As your System Admin to configure both the public and private IPs.
