  1. Hello,
    Thank you for your article.

    As I understand it, the settings “oracle.install.db.CLUSTER_NODES = racnode1, racnode2” should already be in your golden image.

    Then, in my case, I have 6 different clusters on 3 exadata (with dataguard replication on 3 other exadata).
    I must respectively patch a house on the 6 clusters, generate the gold image on each cluster and install the new house on each cluster as well …

    That’s right ?


  2. HI
    oracle.install.db.CLUSTER_NODES=racnode1,racnode2 can be in target response file, here I put in command line when duplicating ORACLE_HOME from golden image to target ( racnode1, racnode2).

    You only patch once against source ORACLE_HOME, then create a shareable golden image from this patched ORACLE_HOME. This golden image can be used to duplicate as many ORACLE_HOME as you want,

    hope it helps.
