Oracle 11g: RAC and Grid Infrastructure Administration Accelerated Release 2

Oracle University
Oracle 11g: RAC and Grid Infrastructure Administration Accelerated Release 2

Duration: 5 Days
What you will learn
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.
