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.
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.
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
