Hi, I have a 10gR2 environment consisting of two nodes both with an own
10gR2 installation (not RAC). They share disks and are intended to work
as a standby solution.
I want to be able to use a common/shared listener for the solution,
mening that all client connections use the same IP/DNS entry for the
databases served by the node(s). I have checked this with Oracle, who
recommends me to use a hardware VIP solution since I am not running
RAC. This is a non-Oracle solution, hence they cant/wont give me a
pointer in how to set this up.
The solution could be something like this: Server (node a) where the
primary node is running has an IP address asssigned to it. Let say
184.108.40.206. You have a TNS listener running on the node a using this
IP address 220.127.116.11. When a problem happends on node a, say a
network or hardware failure then the IP address 138.33.33 is moved
across to node b where you have a TNS listener configured and waiting
to be started on address 18.104.22.168.
Does anybody have any suggestions on how to implement this?
