Getting Started with Oracle RAC


Review each of the topics to get started with Oracle RAC.

Step 1: Obtain Your User Credentials and Database Protection Information

Obtain the following information from your backup administrator:

  • The Command Center URL

  • Your Command Center user credentials

  • The database name

Step 2: Log on to the Command Center

Access the Command Center by using the URL that was displayed on the installation completion page, or that you received from your backup administrator.

From the navigation panel, click Solutions > Databases > DB Instances.

Step 3: Complete the Database Application Setup Wizard

Configure the Database application by completing the DB Instances Setup Wizard.

Step 4: Perform the Initial Configuration

  1. Add the Oracle package to all the clients in the Oracle RAC cluster.

  2. Automatic discovery of Oracle RAC databases and their associated cluster nodes results in the creation and configuration of the corresponding RAC client and instances, with their related cluster nodes and subclients. Consequently, you do not need to create these objects. However, if they need to be manually created, do the following:

    1. Add an Oracle RAC database instance and Add the Oracle RAC nodes.

    2. Create an Oracle RAC subclient.

Step 5: Perform the Backup Operation and the Restore Operation

  1. Perform a full backup operation.

  2. Perform an in-place restore operation.
