The Select Cluster Configuration window appears. 4. Choose the option Configure an Oracle Standalone Cluster , then click Next . Select the Configure as Extended Cluster option to extend an Oracle RAC cluster across two or more separate sites, each equipped with its own storage. The Grid Plug and Play Information window appears. 5. In the Cluster Name and SCAN Name fields, enter the names for your cluster and cluster scan that are unique throughout your entire enterprise network. You can select Configure GNS if you have configured your domain name server (DNS) to send to the GNS virtual IP address name resolution requests for the subdomain GNS serves, as explained in this guide. For cluster member node public and VIP network addresses, provide the information required depending on the kind of cluster you are configuring: If you plan to use automatic cluster configuration with DHCP addresses configured and resolved through GNS, then you only need to provide the GNS VIP names as configured on your DNS. If you plan to use manual cluster configuration, with fixed IP addresses configured and resolved on your DNS, then provide the SCAN names for the cluster, and the public names, and VIP names for each cluster member node. For example, you can choose a name that is based on the node names' common prefix. The cluster name can be mycluster and the cluster SCAN name can be mycluster-scan . Click Next . The Cluster Node Information window appears. 6. In the Public Hostname column of the table of cluster nodes, you should see your local node, for example node1.example.com . The following is a list of additional information about node IP addresses: For the local node only, OUI automatically fills in public and VIP fields. If your system uses vendor clusterware, then OUI may fill additional fields. Chapter 8 Installing Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a New Cluster 8-8

Host names and virtual host names are not domain-qualified. If you provide a domain in the address field during installation, then OUI removes the domain from the address. Interfaces identified as private for private IP addresses should not be accessible as public interfaces. Using public interfaces for Cache Fusion can cause performance problems. When you enter the public node name, use the primary host name of each node. In other words, use the name displayed by the /bin/hostname command. a. Click Add to add another node to the cluster. b. Enter the second node's public name ( node2 ), and virtual IP name ( node2- vip ), then click OK . Provide the virtual IP (VIP) host name for all cluster nodes, or none. You are returned to the Cluster Node Information window. You should now see all nodes listed in the table of cluster nodes. c. Make sure all nodes are selected, then click the SSH Connectivity button at the bottom of the window.
