Enabling 8021.Q VLAN Tagging in Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance Over Ingest Networks (Doc ID 2047411.1)

Last updated on JULY 07, 2022

Applies to:

Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance X5 Hardware - Version All Versions and later
Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance Software - Version and later
Linux x86-64


 Enable 8021.Q VLAN Tagged Interfaces in Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance for Ethernet ingest networks.


There are currently two scenarios for VLAN configuration on the ZDLRA.


Please follow ALL naming conventions as suggested by ORACLE.

  • Listeners => LIST_<VLAN_ID>



Sample VLAN IP Information

Verify the needed ip addresses: (use nslookup)

Checking Host: <HOST>ingest01-v3101.DOMAIN (<IP_ADDRESS>) ..
Checking Host: <HOST>ingest01-vip-v3101.<DOMAIN> (<IP_ADDRESS>) ..
Checking Host: <HOST>ingest02-v3101.<DOMAIN> (<IP_ADDRESS>) ..
Checking Host: <HOST>ingest02-vip-v3101.<DOMAIN> (<IP_ADDRESS>) ..
Checking Host: <HOST>ingest-scan1-v3101.<DOMAIN>

 Scenario 1: Pre-install VLAN Configuration: Converting an Untagged Ingest Network to Tagged Before Install
 1. Create the tagged interface names for the ingest network
 2. Copy the untagged interface files to a tagged interface file
 3. Edit ingest network ifcfg-bondeth0
 4. Edit the tagged interface ifcfg-bondeth0.VLAN_ID file to reflect the interface name
 5. Rename the untagged rule file to be tagged 
 6. Rename the untagged route file to be tagged 
 7. Edit the tagged route file to reflect the tagged interface
 8. Edit the /etc/sysconfig/network file to reflect the tagged interface name 
 9. Restart the network by rebooting the host 
 10. Edit the XML file to reflect the new tagged interface
 11. Continue with the install starting with OEDA step 1
 Scenario 2: Post-Install VLAN Configuration: Adding an Additional Tagged Ingest Network After Install
 VLAN Information
 1. Stage the VLAN script in /home/oracle (ALL Compute nodes)
 2. Add the interface to Oracle Cluster Registry
 3. Start the VIPs (oracle user) 
 4. Check the status of the VIPs (oracle user) 
 5. Add and Start the DB Listener and SCAN Listener (oracle user)
 6. Add the database service that is associated with the network
 7. Add the Dispatcher Entry
 8. Run the following sql commands to address a known bug for listener networks:
 9. Restart ZDLRA Database:
 10. Reboot the All the Compute Nodes
 11. Add the interface to host table ( as rasys/ra )
 12. Configure Protected Databases (Performed on the Client/Protected DB System!)
 13. Create or update the Wallet on all nodes in the cluster
 14. Now add the vpcuser wallet credential
 15. Register the Protected Database in the ZDLRA
 16. Configure the Backup Devices
 17. Run a Test Backup 
 18. Configuring Real-Time Redo Transport
 19. Bounce the Protected Database
