  19. 19. Rapid Home Provisioning has mandatory requirements Rapid Home Provisioning19 09.12.2015 Oracle Grid Infrastructure release 12.1.0.2 or upwards (use the last PSU) ASM Cluster File System (ACFS) Oracle Grid Infrastructure Global Naming Services (GNS) NFS Server and HAVIP (optional*) Lifecycle Management Pack Option (optional*) * how optional is optional? We will see in the next episode (coming soon)
  20. 20. Rapid Home Provisioning has also limitations! Rapid Home Provisioning20 09.12.2015 The main ones: Not available on Windows Cannot upgrade from a release to another (planned in 12.2) Cannot provision Grid Infrastructure Homes (not yet, maybe 12.2?) – Bug 19596245 : IMPLEMENT GRID INFRASTRUCTURE SUPPORT IN RAPID HOME PROVISIONING Cannot provision OS Images or VMs, not in the scope of the tool
  21. 21. Rapid Home Provisioning - Security Roles Rapid Home Provisioning21 09.12.2015 Several roles -> specific permissions on Working Copies and and Golden Images But basically three composite roles: – GH_SA : RHP Server administrator – GH_CA : RHP Client administrator – GH_OPER : for generic administration
