Hi All,

We have landscape of SAP Netweaver 7.5 with Oracle Database and RHEL 6.8 OS.

We are planning to setup Oracle RAC in our landscape where we will move system to RHEL 7.1 version and will have Oracle RAC running.

I am working on high level basis and Db tasks which we need to do to complete this setup.

I am thinking below will be list of steps to complete this setup.

1) Install RHEL 7.1 on different machine.

2) Install and Configure Oracle Clusterware software on this machine.

3) Install Oracle 12c Software on new machine.

4) Export/Import SAP system on new machine.

Please let me know if this sequence of steps is correct or we need to follow any other approach.

I'd recomend you to take a look at the documents in then (on the right "down") "Oracle Real Application Cluster". The document for 11g gives you good steps for the installation, the 12c is more towards an upgrade.

Then you have to "move" the DB. Are you going to use ASM (quite good idea) as you will need a cluster filesystem. Then there are some documents on the ASM area with options to migrate (transportable tablespaces, RMAN ...)

Your source is Linux, your target is linux, you do not need to perform an "HETEROGENEUS" system copy, it is an homogeneus system copy.

Of course, parameters will have to be corrected.

This is a very high level explanation, test everything
