Hardware and Networking Configuration Worksheet

  1. How many Exalytics machines will be installed during the installation?













  1. If more than one (1) Exalytics machine, will they be installed under one cluster installation or they are separate installations? Please describe / attach the installation architecture













  1. Each Exalytics machine requires 3 Rack Unit space in a customer supplied 19” rack. Is the rack space available and designated for the install?













  1. Each Exalytics machine requires 1317W peak power. Does the designated rack have this available capacity?

  1. Specify the Exadata size (quarter, half, full or multi-rack). If multi-rack, specify the number of racks.













  1. For direct cabling with the included 5m passive cable, Exalytics machines must be racked within 5m cabling distance of the Exadata rack (one of the Exadata racks in case of Multi-rack). Is this requirement satisfied? Rack are 2M tall plus an additional 1M to reach the leaf switches. If Exalytics is on top of rack and cables are routed under the floor (3+meters required) the racks must be next to each other to allow for movement of the racks during repairs.

  1. Please also specify the length and type of cable available if the answer to the previous question is ‘Yes’













  1. Is the Exadata machine connected to any other external customer-supplied InfiniBand devices?













  1. Please confirm that there is an available InfiniBand port on each of the two leaf switches of the Exadata machine for each Exalytics system to be connected. Each Exalytics system connected to an Exadata will require two InfiniBand ports (one on each leaf switch) for proper cabling. The leaf switches will normally have ports 5B,6A,6B,7A,7B, 12A free if there are no external InfiniBand devices connected."













  1. Has the Oracle database listener in Exadata been configured to listen on the InfiniBand network?













  1. Please specify the IP address and netmask for Exalytics in the Exadata InfiniBand private network.













  1. Please provide IP address of one of the database servers in the InfiniBand network. This will be used for ping testing.

  1. Please specify the host name(s) assigned for the Exalytics machine for access from customer network and their corresponding IP addresses. For example, if the customer network access is via 1G network, the host names must map to the 1G network interface IP address.













  1. Have the DNS servers been configured for the above host names?













  1. Specify Time Server IP address (optional)













  1. Specify Time Zone for configuration (optional)
