Last updated on FEBRUARY 03, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle GoldenGate - Version 12.2.0.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Datastore being corrupted every time when Goldengate is started.

The GG processes (manager, extract/replicat, jagent) then become unresponsive.
Recreating the datastore allows the processes to restart but then the datastore becomes corrupt again.

Changes

Problem is happening when ZFS + Cluster VIP+ CRS is used

A non-CRS installation that is not using a VIP works fine on ZFS.

This issue is nothing to do with Filesystem being used. The issue is with how Oracle Goldengate Handles the BDB calls.
