Configuring the plug-in

Configuring Plug‑in for Oracle in a multi-instance RAC environment is almost identical to configuring the plug-in in a single-instance, non-RAC environment except for the items identified in the following topics.

Configuring default attributes

NetVault Backup (required for RMAN backups in a RAC environment): Specify the name of the NetVault Backup Server where the Oracle® Database Server was added as a NetVault Backup Client.
Do Restores from NetVault Backup Server (required for RMAN backups in a RAC environment): Specify the name of the NetVault Backup Server where the Oracle Database Server was added as a NetVault Backup Client.
CLI Backup/Autobackup Target Set (required for RMAN backups in a RAC environment): Specify the name of the Backup Target Set that was specified in the Configuring a default Target Set for RMAN backups.

Determining the local Oracle SID and Home directory in a RAC environment

In a multi-instance RAC environment, the local SID and Oracle® Home can be determined with the srvctl config database commands.

3
Run the following command, where <database_name> represents the database that is being added to the plug-in:
<node> <local Oracle SID> <local Oracle Home>

In the following example, Plug‑in for Oracle is being installed on the “faro” node, the local Oracle SID is “o10rac3,” and the local Oracle Home is “/home/o10g/db.”

Adding a database to the plug-in

Adding a multi-instance database in Plug‑in for Oracle is almost identical to adding a single-instance, non-RAC database except for the following differences:

Oracle SID: Enter the local SID for the target RAC database. The local SID is the instance name for the target RAC database on the node where the plug-in is installed.
Parameter File(s) Path: In a multi-instance RAC environment, the plug-in requires the usage of an SPFILE as a dynamic method of maintaining initialization parameters. The SPFILE must be stored on the shared storage in ASM. Because the SPFILE is included in the Control File Autobackups, this field should be left blank in a RAC environment.
Control File Autobackup enabled: Select this option because Control File Autobackups are required in a RAC environment.
