double-check values for any names or passwords that might have changed, for example
your WebLogic Administration Console or database administrator.
On each machine you are adding to the cluster, open a Command Prompt window and

Configuring for Oracle RAC
If your planned installation includes using an Oracle RAC, you edited the Oracle section of the
install.properties file with specifics of one of the nodes in your Oracle RAC cluster. During the
installation process, an XA data source (OraDS) and a non-XA data source (OracleNonXA) were
created. To complete the configuration to connect to your Oracle RAC, you need to perform the
following tasks in the WebLogic Administration Console:
Create an XA data source for each node in the Oracle RAC.
Create one multi data source that links all the nodes in the Oracle RAC.
Create a non-XA data source for each node in the Oracle RAC.
Create one non-XA multi data source that links all the nodes in the Oracle RAC.
Reset all the persistent stores to use the non-XA multi data source.
The remainder of this section provides the instructions for each of the tasks.
