Preparing to Deploy Bare Metal Oracle Database Appliance

Preparing to Deploy Bare Metal Oracle Database Appliance
1
Install the Hardware and Configure
My Oracle Support
a) Ensure that the system hardware is set up and mounted properly
as specified in Oracle Database Appliance Owner’s Guide,
found on:
http://www.oracle.com/pls/topic/lookup?ctx=dba21
b) Verify that your shipment contains the correct power cables
for your location.
c) Verify that at least six 1 GbE cables are available.
d) Obtain your hardware Support Identifier (SI) from your
hardware vendor.
e) Add the hardware SI that you received with Oracle Database
Appliance to your My Oracle Support profile. If you acquired
new software licenses, then also add the new software SIs.
Each SI registration may take up to 24 hours.

Set Up the Network Configuration
a) Collect the following network and cluster information from your
network administrator:
• Generic network information
° Domain name (for example, example.com)
° Domain name server addresses
° (Optional) Network Time Protocol server addresses
• Cluster network information
° Single Client Access Name (SCAN) and two addresses
(for example, hrsys-scan and 192.0.2.16, 192.0.2.17)
° Netmask for public network (for example, 255.255.252.0)
° Gateway for public network (for example, 192.0.2.1)
3
Set Up Network Configuration, Continued
b) Collect the following cluster node information from your
network administrator:
• Node 0 network information
° Public name and address (for example, hrsys0 and 192.0.2.18)
° VIP name and address (for example, hrsys0-vip and 192.0.2.19)
• Node 1 network information
° Public name and address (for example, hrsys1 and 192.0.2.20)
° VIP name and address (for example, hrsys1-vip and 192.0.2.21)
Note: Public, VIP, and SCAN IP addresses must be on the
same subnet.
Note: For virtualization, your network administrator must provide
extra IP addresses for dom0, dom1, and virtual machines.
4
Set Up Oracle ILOM Configuration (Recommended)
Configure Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (Oracle ILOM)
for managing Oracle Database Appliance independently of the
operating system.
Collect the following information for your Oracle ILOM network:
• Oracle ILOM name and address for node 0
(for example, hrsysilom and10.0.0.3)
• Oracle ILOM name and address for node 1
(for example, hrsysilom and 10.0.0.4)
• Netmask for management network
(for example, 255.255.255.0)
• Gateway for management network
(for example, 10.0.0.1)
Note: For information about configuring Oracle Database
Appliance network bonding, see:
https://support.us.oracle.com/oip/faces/secure/km/
DocumentDisplay.jspx?id=1422563.1
Note: You cannot obtain software or support from Oracle
without registered hardware and software SIs.
5
Plan the Software and Database Configuration
Choices
a) Plan your software installation choices as follows:
• Configuration type: Custom
• System name (for example, hrsys)
• Region (for example, America)
• Time zone (for example, America/Los_Angeles)
• Deployment type (for example, Oracle Real Application Clusters).
• Database backup (for example, External). Local appliance
backups leave 1.6 TB (maximum) and external appliance backups
leave 3.2 TB (maximum) for Oracle Database.
b) Prepare to enter information for the following fields:
• Database Name (for example, hrdb)
• DB Class (for example, Small)
• Database Language (for example, English)
• Database Block Size (for example, 8192)
• Database Character Set (for example, AL32UTF8)
• Database Territory (for example, America)
6
Plan for Oracle Auto Service Request and Oracle
Cloud File System Size (Optional)
a) To configure Oracle Auto Service Request, be prepared to
provide the following:
• Proxy server name to use for your deployment
• Your My Oracle Support account user name and password
For more information about Oracle Auto Service Request, see:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/systems/asr/overview/index.html
NOTE: Always specify your product serial number or hardware
SI when opening service requests in My Oracle Support.
b) To change the default name and size of Oracle Cloud
File System, be prepared to provide the following:
• Name of file system (default name is /cloudfs)
• Size of file system (default size is 50 GB)
7
Download the Software
a) (Recommended) Download Oracle Appliance Manager
Configurator:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/
engineered-systems/database-appliance/index.html
(i) Run the configurator, preferably on a computer that is on a
network that is local to where you plan to install Oracle
Database Appliance.
(ii) Enter and validate your configuration choices with the
configurator. This creates a configuration file that you
can use during actual deployment. You can also run
Oracle Appliance Manger Configurator directly from
Oracle Database Appliance during deployment.
NOTE: For information about the configuration options such as
Deployment Type, Database Class, or any of the other options,
refer to Oracle Appliance Manager Configurator online help.
b) Follow the instructions in My Oracle Support Note 888888.1:
https://support.oracle.com/CSP/main/
article?cmd=show&type=NOT&id=888888.1
(i) Download the latest software (Oracle Database Appliance
End-User Bundle) to a local computer on the network.
(ii) Download the latest available Oracle Database Appliance
patch bundle, which you must apply before or after
deployment, and review the README files.
