In this seminar, students will learn about Oracle Real Application Clusters installation and administration concepts in a Solaris environment. Students will learn how to prepare Solaris cluster nodes in preparation to accept an Oracle Grid Infrastructure installation using Oracle ASM for cluster storage needs. In addition students will learn how to create a Real Applications Cluster database using Oracle ASM for the database shared storage. Finally, Students will learn to administer Oracle Clusterware, Oracle ASM, and the Oracle RAC database in a Solaris environment.

The seminar content is intended to aid current Solaris system administrators successfully install, configure, and administer Oracle RAC database environments.

This seminar provides no hands-on lessons for any of the topics covered.
