Course Objectives

  • Understand Oracle Clusterware architecture
  • Describe how Grid Plug and Play affects Clusterware
  • Describe Automatic Storage Management (ASM) architecture
  • Perform Grid Infrastructure installation and create RAC database
  • Demonstrate Clusterware management proficiency
  • Manage application resources
  • Troubleshoot Oracle Clusterware
  • Administer ASM Instances and disk groups
  • Administer ASM Cluster File Systems
  • Install Oracle Database 11gR2 software and create RAC database
  • Manage RAC databases
  • Manage backup and recovery for RAC
  • Determine RAC-specific tuning components

  • Describe high availability architectures

In this intensive course, students will learn about the Oracle Grid Infrastructure products. This includes Oracle Automatic Storage Manager (ASM), ASM Cluster File System and Oracle Clusterware. Students will also learn to administer the Oracle Clusterware and storage products using both command line utilities and graphical tools. Administration of ASM and ACFS will be done using both command line and graphical user interface clients. Students will learn how to leverage the Oracle Clusterware to make applications highly available, supporting monitoring and failover to other nodes. Students will learn to troubleshoot the Oracle Clusterware by examining log files, enabling debugging, and enabling tracing for various utilities. Students will learn about RAC database administration in the Oracle Grid Infrastructure environment. Students will learn to administer cluster databases using Enterprise Manager and command-line utilities like SRVCTL, CRSCTL, and SQL*Plus. Students will study the new connection architecture and how to make those connections highly available. Backup and recovery issues relative to cluster database environments will also be studied. This is an accelerated course, covering seven days' worth of content in only five days. Because of the extra content to be accommodated each day, the duration of classes each day can be slightly longer than usual. This course is based on Oracle Database 11g Release 2.

Learn to:

  • Describe the Oracle Database 11g Grid Infrastructure
  • Administer both Policy and Administrator managed RAC databases
  • Install and configure Grid Infrastructure
  • Describe Oracle Database 11g RAC enhancements and new features
  • Describe Grid Plug and Play
  • Use Oracle Clusterware to make applications highly available
