For the most efficient setup, perform the following tasks to create an Oracle database instance first on the primary server and then on the secondary server.

Important Considerations

  • If you are not installing Oracle Home on shared or replicated volumes, configure the Oracle database in “Advanced Configuration” and do not configure Oracle Managed Files.
  • Only one Oracle Database is supported per Oracle Home directory. For an Active/Active configuration, you must have an Oracle Home directory for each.
  • Special consideration is required when the Oracle Home is not installed to the same LifeKeeper protected volume as the Oracle Database. If Oracle Home is installed on a different shared or replicated volume, that volume must be LifeKeeper protected and manually added as a dependent resource in the Oracle resource hierarchy.
  • If you are configuring multiple ORACLE instances, you must configure each listener to listen on a unique virtual IP address.
  • LifeKeeper will not allow you to configure multiple listeners to listen on the same virtual IP address with different ports.
