Oracle Golden Gate on Exadata | Configuring ACFS

Good Morning Guys! I am starting a new challenge, and my articles will be written in English Mode, because the best part of the public and messages that I receive every day are from India, England, the USA and many countries around the world.

I love the Community and promise to continue giving support and answers to a lot of mails in Spanish that I receive every week. Let’s start!

Matrix Installation

Product Version
Oracle Golden Gate 12.2.0.2.2
Exadata Image Version 12.1.2.3.6.170713
Oracle Grid Infrastructure 12.1.0.2

Pre Requisites

We’ll start with a summary of tasks that we need to keep in mind to start with the configuration and installation of Oracle Golden Gate on a RAC environment. It’s necessary :

  • As a share file system, we chose ACFS (ASM Cluster File System) under grid infrastructure 12.1.0
  • Oracle Golden Gate.

Creating and configuring ACFS on Exadata

When we working on an Oracle RAC environment, we must install an OGG on a cluster file system. As part of the architecture design, we choose the ACFS, but we could use NFS or DBFS.

My decision was based on my experience with this FS and listening to the council from others partners, that was used on ODA implementations.

Basically, my procedure is same that on Non-Exadata Environments:

export DISPLAY=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:0
. oraenv
asmca

On the next screen, we can see the name of the candidate DG.

Generally, we find typically three disk groups.

  • We choose the DBFS_DG .
