At the 5th of august, the database machine (half rack) has arrived at VX Company. The machine arrives wrapped (in plastic) on a pallet.
Because the whole rack is already assembled, which means all the parts are already in the rack, the machine is quite heavy (600 kilograms I’ve been told). After some pushing, pulling and lifting together, we arrived at our serverroom.
Next is the hardware configuration and attaching the network cables from the database machine to our network.
After the cables have been mounted and checked, the power is turned on, and all the database (4) and storage servers (7) are turned on!
The 9th of august we carry on configuring the machine with Oracle ‘ACS’ (Advanced Customer Support), to configure the database and storage servers.
