Trying to build a RAC server. I have 5 ips that the Network Team has provided with. They are like this:
LAN IP (IP & Cable, which means physical card is present)
TSM IP (Tivoli Storage Manager-Backup) (IP & Cable)
ISO1 (Heartbeat 1) (IP & Cable)
ISO2 (Heartbeat 2) (IP & Cable)
iLO & (HP Integrated Light-Outs for remote console) (IP & Cable)
vip (IP Only)
So I thought I could check the ips of all the nics with ifconfig. But when I do
I see only the eth0 (LAN) and eth1 (TSM) ips, eth2 and eth3 are empty. I don't see any other information. I have learnt that, I need to configure ISO1 and ISO2 for the NIC cards, but don't know which NICs to configure.
There is an already built RAC server which confused me because that has the following information:
Existing RAC server
eth0: has the ip0, gateway1, Mask1 and h/w id as say(64:12:13:14:15)
eth0:1 has the ip1, gateway1, Mask1 and h/w id SAME AS eth0 as say(64:12:13:14:15)
eth0:2 has the ip2, gateway1, Mask1 and h/w id SAME AS eth0 as say(64:12:13:14:15)
eth1: ip3, gateway2, mask2
eth2: ip4, gateway3, mask3
eth3: ip5, gateway4, mask3 (same as eth2's mask)
sit0 Link encap: IPv6-in-IPv4 (does not have any ips assigned)
1. What does it mean by eth0:1, eth0:2, are these virtual ips, if so how do we configure them ( I might need commands (thanks in advance) as this is my first time and also are IPs related to ISO1 & ISO2?)
2. When I check the /etc/sysconfig-scripts/ directory, I did not find the eth0:1 and eth0:2, how do I find them?
3. How do I know what NICs in the existing RAC server are associated to the Heartbeat ips as I don't have the existing server's specification, I only have the new server's specs which I need to build), is it ok if I configure the ISO1 and ISO2 ips with eth2 and eth3?
4.If I want to make my RAC server look similar to this one, then what should I do? I mean any additional pre-reqs that you might think of?
Thank you in advance
. Sorry if there are too many questions, but I am very eager to build these boxes as this is my first time.
