Configuring Networking and Storage for Oracle
RAC 10g R2
This section provides the following information about network and storage
configuration:
•
Configuring the public and private networks.
•
Verifying the storage configuration.
•
Configuring the shared storage for Oracle Clusterware and the Oracle
Database.
NOTE: Oracle RAC 10g R2 is a complex database configuration that requires an
ordered list of procedures. To configure networking and storage in a minimal
amount of time, perform the following procedures in order.
Configuring the Public and Private Networks
NOTE: Each node requires a unique public and private internet protocol (IP)
address and an additional public IP address to serve as the virtual IP address for
the client connections and connection failover. The virtual IP address must belong
to the same subnet as the public IP address. All public IP addresses, including the
virtual IP address, should be registered with the domain naming system (DNS). If a
DNS server is not available, IP addresses have to be registered in the hosts file on
all cluster nodes.
Depending on the number of NIC ports available, configure the public and
private interfaces as shown in Table 1-6.

Configuring and Teaming the Private Network
Before you deploy the cluster, assign a private IP address and host name to each
cluster node. This procedure ensures that the nodes can communicate with each
other through the private interface.
Table 1-7 provides an example of a network configuration for a two-node
cluster.
NOTE: This example assumes all the IP addresses are registered in the hosts file of
all cluster nodes.
NOTE: The two bonded NIC ports for a private network should be on separate PCI
buses. For example, a bonded pair can consist of one on-board NIC and one add-on
NIC card.

Additional Troubleshooting
This section provides recommended actions for additional problems that you
may encounter.
PowerPath Installation
•
PROBLEM: PowerPath installation fails.
–
CAUSE: Unknown installation error.
–
RESOLUTION: Reboot the system on which the PowerPath installation
fails.
NIC Teaming
•
PROBLEM: Broadcom NIC teaming fails.
–
CAUSE: The following steps may result in a NIC teaming failure:
•
One of the Broadcom NICs that was used in the NIC teaming fails
or is disabled. Due to the availability of the second NIC, the private
network is still active on this node through the second NIC.
•
When the first NIC is still down or disabled, the second NIC in the
teaming also fails or is disabled. This failure causes the private
network to go down completely on this node. The private IP address
on this node cannot be pinged.
•
When the second NIC that failed or was disabled becomes enabled,
the private network of this node remains inactive.
NOTE: A private network becomes inactive only if the failed second NIC
becomes enabled. If the first failed NIC becomes enabled, the private network
becomes active.
–
RESOLUTION: The most likely cause of this issue is a Spanning Tree
Protocol on your switch. If this issue is caused by a Spanning Tree
Protocol, perform one of the following procedures:
Deployment Guide
69
•
Turn off Spanning Tree on the switch.
•
Enable Port Fast Learning (or equivalent, which may be called
something different depending on the brand of switch) on the ports
of the switch to which your teamed NICs are attached.
•
Use Broadcom’s LiveLink feature by right-clicking the team,
choosing Enable LiveLink, and following the instructions in the
window.
NOTE: Though the suggested solutions may fix the above mentioned issue, be
aware of the implications or issues that may arise from enabling Port Fast
Learning or turning off Spanning Tree on your switches.
