How to add and remove databases from Oracle cluster


To remove database from Oracle clusterware, use below commands using "oracle" user(Oracle software owner).

srvctl remove database -d db_name

$ srvctl remove database -d test
PRKO-3141 : Database test could not be removed because it was running

$ srvctl stop database -d test
$ srvctl remove database -d test
Remove the database test? (y/[n]) y
$


Once you remove the database,cluserware doesn't maintain any information about this database and its instances and hence you can't manage this database using srvctl.

$ srvctl status database -d TEST
PRCD-1120 : The resource for database TEST could not be found.
PRCR-1001 : Resource ora.test.db does not exist
$ srvctl status instance -d TEST -i TEST1
PRCD-1120 : The resource for database TEST could not be found.
PRCR-1001 : Resource ora.test.db does not exist
$ srvctl status instance -d TEST -i TEST2
PRCD-1120 : The resource for database TEST could not be found.
PRCR-1001 : Resource ora.test.db does not exist



To add database to Oracle clusterware,use below commands using "oracle" user(Oracle software owner).

$ srvctl add database -d test -o /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1 --> This is $ORACLE_HOME of database
$ srvctl config database -d test
Database unique name: test
Database name:
Oracle home: /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1
Oracle user: oracle
Spfile:
Domain:
Start options: open
Stop options: immediate
Database role: PRIMARY
Management policy: AUTOMATIC
Server pools: test
Database instances:
Disk Groups:
Services:
Database is administrator managed
$ srvctl status database -d test
Database is not running.

$ srvctl start database -d test
Database test cannot be started since it has no configured instances.

So register the database instances as below

$ srvctl add instance -d test -i TEST1 -n rsvmsb300
$ srvctl add instance -d test -i TEST2 -n rsvmsb302
$ srvctl start database -d test
$ srvctl config database -d TEST
Database unique name: test
Database name:
Oracle home: /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1
Oracle user: oracle
Spfile:
Domain:
Start options: open
Stop options: immediate
Database role: PRIMARY
Management policy: AUTOMATIC
Server pools: test
Database instances: TEST1,TEST2
Disk Groups:
Services:
Database is administrator managed


$ id
uid=1000(oracle) gid=2262(oinstall) groups=1001(dba),2259(asmadmin),2260(asmdba),2261(asmoper),2262(oinstall)

  3. Grid Control shows some services that are down and when I run the srvctl remove service -d "database" -s "service_name" -f, I get the error PRCR-1001 : Resource ora."database"."service_name".svc does not exist. Any ideas how to resolve this?

    1. Is that Service registered to cluster before you remote it?
