Oracle 11g: RAC and Grid Infrastructure Administration Accelerated

5 Days

Description

This Oracle 11g: RAC and Grid Infrastructure Administration Accelerated training teaches you about the Oracle Grid Infrastructure products, including Oracle Automatic Storage Manager (ASM), ASM Cluster File System and Oracle Clusterware. You will also learn to administer the Oracle Clusterware and storage products using both command line utilities and graphical tools using both command line and graphical user interface clients.

Learn To:

  • Describe the Oracle Database 11g Grid Infrastructure.
  • Administer both Policy and Administrator managed RAC databases.
  • Install and configure Grid Infrastructure.
  • Describe Oracle Database 11g RAC enhancements and new features<./li>
  • Describe Grid Plug and Play.
  • Use Oracle Clusterware to make applications highly available.
  • Troubleshoot the Oracle Clusterware by examining log files, enabling debugging and enabling tracing for various utilities.
  • Add and remove nodes and explore quality of service concepts.
  • Upgrade or patch the Grid Infrastructure environment.
  • Upgrade and path Oracle RAC databases.

Benefits to You

Enrolling in this advanced course will help you develop the skills to leverage the Oracle Clusterware to make applications highly available. You'll leave the class with the ability to support monitoring and failover to other nodes as well.

RAC Database Administration in the Oracle Grid Infrastructure Environment

Furthemore, you'll get hands-on training administering cluster databases using Enterprise Manager and command-line utilities like SRVCTL, CRSCTL and SQL*Plus. Expert Oracle University instructors will help you 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 covered, along with Oracle RAC One Node and online migration.

Accelerated Course

This course is based on Oracle Database 11g Release 2. Please note that this is an accelerated course, covering 9 days' worth of content in only 5 days. Because of the extra content covered each day, the daily class duration may be slightly longer than usual.
