Okay, back to school folks, back to school :). As with any new product, our long learning journey starts with an installation on a sandbox environment. To get you up to speed with Oracle 12c RAC and let you focus on important stuff (e.g. features research), I have put together detailed step-by-step installation instructions.
You can find it here => Oracle 12c RAC On your laptop Step by Step Implementation Guide 1.0
I know for a fact that several Oracle 12c RAC installation guides from other great community contributors are on the way. Several friends of mine are working on 12c RAC posts at the moment. I would like to mention just a few of them and how their guides will be different from mine (based on my expectations):
- Tim Hall aka Oracle Base may be working on a 12c RAC guide for Mac OS. If you are a Mac OS user, I would advise you to check his web site. If it isn’t there yet, then I am sure it will come in the nearest time. I would like to mention that I have used Tim’s 11g RAC implementation guide in my work a lot and adopted it to Windows and Oracle 12c version.
- Seth Miller is busy putting things together for the famous RAC Attack. This is going to be a very good study guide. Based on previous versions, it is going to be focused on teaching you how to implement, patch, operate, customize, etc. cluster environments. I strongly suggest that you check his web site and start using the RAC Attack guide as soon as it is available.
All right, folks. Enough talking/writing/reading. Back to school! I hope my guide will help you go through the installation task quickly and enjoy a great learning experience.
Right before you go, let me ask you to get back to this blog post and share your experience as soon as you complete the installation. I am always looking for your feedback :) Please take 2 minutes to complete this 3-question survey.
