GoldenGate 11G Install on Linux x86

Today I will show you how to install GoldenGate under Linux 5.5 following the recipe of my teammate Gleb.
Prerequisites:
·          Oracle Linux 5.5 installed in 2 VM using VirtualBox, I have used one pre-built VM from Oracle (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/databaseappdev-vm-161299.html)
·          Download Oracle GoldenGate software from (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/goldengate/downloads/index.html)
·          Start both VM machines and change the host name to source_host & target_host respectively
·          Test ping connectivity from source_host to target_host
Installation
·          Create /01 directory and change the owner to oracle:dba on source_host:
[oracle@source_host Desktop]$ su –
Password:
[root@source_host ~]# cd /
[root@source_host /]# df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1              11G  2.7G  6.9G  28% /
/dev/hdb1              12G   11G  683M  94% /home
tmpfs                1014M  264M  750M  27% /dev/shm
[root@source_host /]# mkdir /u01
[root@source_host /]# chown oracle:dba /u01
[root@source_host /]# exit
Logout
·          Copy GoldenGate binaries to /u01 and unzip the file, then create goldengate directory under /u01 and untar the file:
[oracle@source_host Desktop]$ mv ogg112101_fbo_ggs_Linux_x86_ora11g_32bit.zip /u01/
[oracle@source_host Desktop]$ cd /u01
[oracle@source_host u01]$ ls
ogg112101_fbo_ggs_Linux_x86_ora11g_32bit.zip
[oracle@source_host u01]$ unzip ogg112101_fbo_ggs_Linux_x86_ora11g_32bit.zip

·          At this point GoldenGate is installed and configured in both Source & Target hosts, Extract/Replicat processes are running, now the funny part begins. Let’s test our replication environment!
·          In the Source DB run the below command:

SQL> create table sender.test_tab_1 (id number,rnd_str varchar2(12));
SQL> insert into sender.test_tab_1 values (1,’test_1′);
SQL> commit;

·                     ·          Now check the Target DB:

SQL> select * from receiver.test_tab_1;
ID         RND_STR
———- ————
1          test_1

Our GoldenGate DDL and DML replication is now working. The table was created on the Target DB and data were replicated.

Thanks,
Alfredo
