1. Overview

ACFS Support On OS Platforms (Certification Matrix). (Doc ID 1369107.1)

Oracle Automatic Storage Management Cluster File System (Oracle ACFS) is a multi-platform, scalable file system, and storage management technology that extends Oracle Automatic Storage Management (Oracle ASM) functionality to support customer files maintained outside of Oracle Database. 

Oracle ACFS supports many database and application files, including executables, database trace files, database alert logs, application reports, BFILEs, and configuration files. Other supported files are video, audio, text, images, engineering drawings, and other general-purpose application file data.

Oracle ACFS does not support files for the Oracle Grid Infrastructure home.

Oracle ACFS does not support Oracle Cluster Registry (OCR) and voting files.

Oracle ACFS functionality requires that the disk group compatibility attributes for ASM and ADVM be set to 11.2 or greater.

1. Overview

AIM:Without shutting down primary, we need to create physical standby database using RMAN DUPLICATE FROM ACTIVE DATABASE command (No need to take backup of primary database) 

Active Data Guard is a new option from Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition.

PLEASE NOTE in 12c Data Guard is set up at the Container level and not the individual Pluggable database level as the redo log files only belong to the Container database and the individual pluggable databases do not have their own online redo log files.

Definition of Active Dataguard:

Oracle Active Data Guard enables read-only access to a physical standby database for queries, sorting, reporting, web-based access, etc., while continuously applying changes received from the production/primary database.

5. Configure Standby Redo Log on Primary

The standby redo logs must be the same size as the primary database online logs. The recommended number of standby redo logs is:

(maximum # of logfiles +1) * maximum # of threads

This example uses two online log files for each thread. Thus, the number of standby redo logs should be (2 + 1) * 2 = 6. 
That is, one more standby redo log file for each thread. 

-- Standy Redo logs created in the primary and RMAN will create them in standby automatically while running duplicate command.

-- Standy Redo logs files come into picture only when protection mode is Maximum Availability and Maximum Protection.

How to take OCR backup on 11.2.0.4

How to take OCR backup on 11.2.0.4

1. Overview

11g Release 2 on wards voting disk data is automatically backed up in the OCR whenever there is a configuration change.
No need to take voting disk backup separately, OCR backup will contain both OCR and Voting data. We can restore voting disk using OCR backup.

OCR BACKUP

Automatic backups :

a) CRSD automatically creates OCR backups every 4 hours.
b) Each full day.
c) End of each week.
d) Retains the last three copies of OCR.

Manual backups:

a) can be taken using the "ocrconfig -manualbackup" command

2. Show Backup

All Backups

[root@rac1 ~]# ocrconfig -showbackup
PROT-24: Auto backups for the Oracle Cluster Registry are not available

rac1     2018/11/03 08:10:12     /u01/app/11.2.0.4/grid/cdata/rac-scan/backup_20181103_081012.ocr
[root@rac1 ~]#

Auto Backups

[root@rac1 ~]# ocrconfig -showbackup auto

Manual Backups

[root@rac1 ~]# ocrconfig -showbackup manual

[root@rac1 ~]#

3. Take OCR backup manually

[root@rac1 ~]# ocrconfig -manualbackup

Cluster Name

/*How to display Oracle Cluster name*/

1. The command “cemutlo” provides cluster name and version.

$GI_HOME/bin/cemutlo [-n] [-w]

[oracle@rac1 ~]$ cemutlo -n
rac-scan <—– This is Cluster name.

2. $CRS_HOME/cdata/<cluster_name> directory

3. ocrdump
which will create a text file called OCRDUMPFILE open that file and look for this entry
+[SYSTEM.css.clustername]+ ORATEXT : crs_cluster In this case, “crs_cluster” is the cluster name.

4. gpnptool get
search for keyword “ClusterName

5. ASM SP File location
[root@rac1 ]# gpnptool getpval -asm_spf (or) SQL> show parameter spfile 
+DATA/<clusterName>/asmparameterfile/registry.253.783619900

Note: We cannot change the cluster name. The only to do that is to reinstall the clusterware.

OSWatcher

How to Configure OSWatcher

Note: You have to follow the same steps to configure OSW in all remaining nodes in the cluster.

Contents
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

1. Download OSWatcher
2. Install OSWatcher
3. Create file private.net
4. Start OS Watcher
5. Verify OSW Status
6. Stop OSWather
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Step 1: Download OSWatcher

OSWatcher (Includes: [Video]) (Doc ID 301137.1)

oswbb733.tar


Step 2: Install OSWatcher

Move the OSW tar file to target location where you want to install OSW. After this just untar

3. Create file private.net for monitoring private interconnet

OS Watcher User Guide (Doc ID 301137.1)
Note: By default private interconnect statistics are not collected by OSW. You have to set it manually as per the document.If you open the OSW guide mentioned in the above document you can see the sub title 'Setting up OSW'. In that it is clearly mentioned how to set the private.net stats.document.

vi private.net     <-- add below entries and then save and exit

#Linux Example
###########################################
echo "zzz ***"`date`
traceroute -r -F rac1-priv.rajasekhar.com
traceroute -r -F rac2-priv.rajasekhar.com
############################################
rm locks/lock.file

[root@rac1 oswbb]# cat private.net
#Linux Example
###########################################
echo "zzz ***"`date`
traceroute -r -F rac1-priv.rajasekhar.com
traceroute -r -F rac2-priv.rajasekhar.com
############################################
rm locks/lock.file
[root@rac1 oswbb]#

[root@rac1 oswbb]# chown -R oracle:oinstall private.net
[root@rac1 oswbb]# chmod -R 755 private.net
[root@rac1 oswbb]# ls -ltr private.net
-rwxr-xr-x 1 oracle oinstall 228 Aug 12 02:04 private.net
[root@rac1 oswbb]#


4. Start OS Watcher

Example 1: This would start the tool and collect data at default 30 second intervals and log the last 48 hours of data to archive files.

./startOSWbb.sh 

Example 2: This would start the tool and collect data at 60 second intervals and log the last 10 hours of data to archive files and automatically compress the files.
./startOSWbb.sh 60 10 gzip

Example 3: This would start the tool and collect data at 60 second intervals and log the last 10 hours of data to archive files, compress the files and set the archive directory to a non-default location.

./startOSWbb.sh 60 10 gzip /u02/tools/oswbb/archive

Example 4: This would start the tool and collect data at 60 second intervals and log the last 48 hours of data to archive files, NOT compress the files and set the archive directory to a non-default location.

./startOSWbb.sh 60 48 NONE /u02/tools/oswbb/archive

Example 5: This would start the tool, put the process in the background, enable to the tool to continue running after the session has been terminated, collect data at 60 second intervals, and log the last 10 hours of data to archive files.

nohup ./startOSWbb.sh 60 10 &
As root user

[root@rac1 ~]# cd /u01/share/oswbb
[root@rac1 oswbb]# ls -ltr startOSWbb.sh
-rwxr-xr-x 1 oracle oinstall 2574 Feb 26 23:50 startOSWbb.sh
[root@rac1 oswbb]#
[root@rac1 oswbb]# nohup ./startOSWbb.sh 30 72 gzip & <--- Hit ENTER twice
[1] 28446
[root@rac1 oswbb]# nohup: appending output to `nohup.out'

[1]+  Done                    nohup ./startOSWbb.sh 30 72 gzip
[root@rac1 oswbb]#

Note: OSW will keep running until stop/crash and will keep data for last 72 hours only. Data automatically compress after 72 hours.


5. Verify OSW Running

[root@rac1 archive]# ps -elf | grep OSWatcher  | grep -v grep

1. Current Status of OCR/VOTE DISK.

[oracle@rac1 ~]$ ocrcheck
Status of Oracle Cluster Registry is as follows :

Note: With OCR backup we can recover Voting Disk in case of vote disk lose.


3. Simulate VOTE DISK corruption

DISCLAIMER: The dd command given below is just for learning purposes and should only be used on testing systems. I will not take any responsibility of any consequences or loss of data caused by this command.

Corrupt the voting disk /dev/oracleasm/disks/DISK5

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/oracleasm/disks/DISK5 bs=4096 count=1000000

Why only 4096 bytes? because the ASM disk header is in the first block of the first AU, and the block size is 4096 bytes.

[oracle@rac1 ~]$ kfed read /dev/oracleasm/disks/DISK5 | grep kfdhdb.blksize

Located 1 voting disk(s).
[root@rac1 ~]# 

KFED read command failed. Voting disk got corrupted, i have waited around 1 hour but some how CLUSTER DID NOT WENT DOWN. Don't know why, but i am missing something here.

Please correct me if i am wrong. Let’s bring down everything in order to see the corruption.

Note: I tried to stop the CRS on both nodes at the same time, on Node 2 CRS stopped, but Node 1 restarted while shutting down CRS.

However i have rebooted both the nodes.


4. Reboot both nodes in order to see corruption

After reboot cluster status on both nodes.

2. Check status of service

[oracle@rac2 ~]$ srvctl status service -d nike
Service nike_srv is running on instance(s) nike1
[oracle@rac2 ~]$

Note: Confirm where service is now running. If service running on instance 2 then manually failover the service.

srvctl relocate service -d <dbname> -s <service name> -i <old_inst> -t <new_inst>

Note that this does not disconnect any current sessions


3. Shutdown instance 2

[oracle@rac2 ~]$ srvctl stop instance -d nike -i nike2
[oracle@rac2 ~]$ srvctl status database -d nike
Instance nike1 is running on node rac1
Instance nike2 is not running on node rac2
[oracle@rac2 ~]$


4. Unpin Node

As root from node RAC1

[root@rac1 ~]# olsnodes -s -t
rac1    Active  Pinned
rac2    Active  Pinned
[root@rac1 ~]# crsctl unpin css -n rac2
CRS-4667: Node rac2 successfully unpinned.
[root@rac1 ~]# olsnodes -s -t
rac1    Active  Pinned
rac2    Active  Unpinned <<<<
[root@rac1 ~]#

Note: If Cluster Synchronization Services (CSS) is not running on the node you are deleting, then the crsctl unpin css command in this step fails.

1. Remove Oracle Instance


i) Remove Instance from OEM Database Control MonitoringI did not configured. Hence  ignoring.
From: Node RAC1
Note: Run the emca command from any node in the cluster, except from the node where the instance we want to stop from being monitored is running.

emctl status dbconsole
emctl status agnet
emca -displayConfig dbcontrol -cluster —
emca -deleteInst db


ii) Backup OCR
From: Node RAC1

[root@rac1 ~]# ocrconfig -manualbackup
rac1     2015/06/19 23:38:03     /u01/app/11.2.0/grid/cdata/rac-scan/backup_20150619_233803.ocr
[root@rac1 ~]#

Note: that voting disks are automatically backed up in OCR after the changes we will be making to the cluster.


iii) Remove instance name from services
From node RAC1
Note:
Before deleting an instance from an Oracle RAC database, use either SRVCTL or Oracle Enterprise Manager to do the following:
If you have services configured, then relocate the services
Modify the services so that each service can run on one remaining instance
Ensure that the instance to be removed from an administrator-managed database is neither a preferred nor an available instance of any service

[oracle@rac1 ~]$ srvctl status service -d nike -s nike_srv -v
Service nike_srv is running on instance(s) nike1  <<<< service running only on instance nike1. Hence no issue here. If service running on instance 2, then we need to relocate service before instance delete.
[oracle@rac1 ~]$
[oracle@rac1 ~]$ srvctl config service -d nike -s nike_srv -v

From Node RAC1 as Oracle Home owner.

[oracle@rac1 ~]$ srvctl config database -d nike -v

2. Remove Oracle Database Software

i) Verify Listener Not Running in Oracle Home >>> Please ignore this step because no listener is running from RDBMS HOME.

From Node RAC2

[oracle@rac2 ~]$ ps -ef | grep tns
root         9     2  0 Jun19 ?        00:00:00 [netns]

Network: 1, Owner: oracle
Home: 
  /u01/app/11.2.0/grid on node(s) rac1,rac2 
End points: TCP:1521
[oracle@rac2 ~]$

Note: If any listeners were explicitly created to run from the Oracle home being removed, they would need to be disabled and stopped.
srvctl disable listener -l  -n 
srvctl stop listener -l  -n 


ii) Update Oracle Inventory – (Node Being Removed)

From node RAC2

[oracle@rac2 ~]$ cd $ORACLE_HOME/oui/bin

iii) Remove instance nike2 entry from /etc/oratab

From node RAC2

+ASM2:/u01/app/11.2.0/grid:N            # line added by Agent >> We need to remove all database instance entries from oratab except ASM entries.
[oracle@rac2 ~]$


iv) De-install Oracle Home (Non-shared Oracle Home)
