High Availability Deployment Using Oracle Clusterware
This paper provides instructions on setting up an Active/Passive (failover) configuration of Oracle Essbase using Oracle Clusterware (OCW). A clustered setup allows configuring two nodes running Essbase services so that they cooperate as a single system. In the event of a node failure, OCW automatically fails over and starts all Essbase services on the passive node. Virtual IP (VIP) failover allows a single floating IP to be bound to the active node in the cluster which then, fails over in case of a node crash.
