Can I have two different database on one server? not running at the same time off course.
let say I have database A and database B.
I want to be able to start one of these database from one server. because one will used for dev, and the other will be used for testing purposes.
Well I dont think it will create problem. Right now I am using two instances in the same server, started running simultaneously.
Only issue is, u must have sufficient RAM size, processor capacity, proper disk I/O load shed and proper Init parameter tuning. Otherwise the server will suffer performance issues.
What is the server capacity and its details, oracle version and the database sizes? Max. user sessions expected etc., etc.,
There is nothing Impossible.
Even Impossible says
I M POSSIBLE
as long as you have enough memory and disk space - I have a machime with 6 instance running share with many programmers.
Sure you can. You can have multiple instances or two DB in same machine. I just did it and work fine so far…all you have to make sure that your environment is set accordingly…
I’m not sure about NT…
I run four instances on a WinNT machine and have no problems. Running 1 Gig Processer and 1.5 gig memory.
Hardware Raid Mirrored drives.
can you give me example?
could you give me some of the example of which settings I need to change?
I'm now to this Unix stuff.
All you need to set is ORACLE_SID
For example, in K shell,
in C shell,
setenv ORACLE_SID new_sid
before issuing create database statement.
Please follow “sysdba” suggestion and you will be fine…that exactly how I did it….
Take the help of ./dbassist. Easy way create
database. When asked for oracle_home,
give different home. And the rest you
I love dba job
