Installing RDC 4.5.3 AS10g R2 Web Server Without MDR & Infrastructure? (Doc ID 858397.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 13, 2009

Applies to:

Oracle Clinical - Version: 4.5.2
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

You are installing RDC 4.5.3 on a validation OC/RDC 4.5.2 environment.
You have already installed RDC 4.5.3 on a test environment, installing the MDR in the product
database.

However, this installation is problematic when database cloning is used.
A suggested alternative installation is to have a separate database to host the MDR.

However, for them the burden of creating an essentially useless MDR + infrastructure is quite heavy, especially in rapidly changing envrionemnts like CROs.
This also makes cloning almost impossible.

The following ERs have addressed this issue:

<<Bug 7626274>> - TEST LEAN INSTALLATION FOR OC\RDC VER. 4.5.3 SERVERS
<<Bug 8432178>> - INSTRUCTIONS FOR CLONING OC/RDC 4.5.3 & TMS 4.6 ENVIRONMENTS (WITHOUT MDR)


You have ended up installing the Midtier and the infrastructure on a Windows server, and the infrastructure database (that contains the Metadata Repository) on a Unix server.

In this way, you hope you can keep the RDC 4.5.3 components separated from the OC/RDC database, so that they can still clone databases without having issues with the MDR.

The following questions have been posed:

1. Is there any development on this topic?
2. Does Oracle support (or will support in the future) this kind of configuration?
3. Will you need to enable SSO?
