Vagrant 12cR2 Data Guard Build

The Vagrant scripts here will allow you to build a 12cR2 Data Guard system by just starting the VMs in the correct order.

If you need a more detailed description of this build, check out the article here.

Required Software

Download and install the following software. If you can't figure out this step, you probably shouldn't be considering a RAC installation.

You will also need to download the 12cr2 database software.

Clone Repository

Pick an area on your file system to act as the base for this git repository and issue the following command. If you are working on Windows, remember to check your Git settings for line terminators. If the bash scripts are converted to Windows terminators you will have problems.

git clone https://github.com/oraclebase/vagrant.git

Copy the Oracle software under the "dataguard/software" directory. From the "dataguard" subdirectory, the structure should look like this.

Build the Data Guard System

The following commands will leave you with a functioning Data Guard installation.

Start the first node and wait for it to complete. This will create the primary database.

cd node1
vagrant up

Start the second node and wait for it to complete. This will create the standby database and configure the broker.

cd ../node2
vagrant up

Turn Off System

Perform the following to turn off the system cleanly.

cd ../node2
vagrant halt

cd ../node1
vagrant halt

Remove Whole System

The following commands will destroy all VMs and the associated files, so you can run the process again.

cd ../node2
vagrant destroy -f

cd ../node1
vagrant destroy -f
