I've got a VMware VM running:
- RHEL 5.8 64-bit
- Oracle Database EE 11g R2 (188.8.131.52)
I've cloned the VM so that I can make an identical test server of our production server however I'm not sure how to configure Oracle in response to me cloning the machine. When I clone the new database server, I have to rename the OS FQDN and IP address. This allows me to bring the VM live w/o impacting the production machine with an IP conflict or DNS issue.
Now that the server is up, the Oracle 11g R2 machine has a folder structure and files based on it's source FQDN versus the newly changed hostname.
Is there a recommended script(s) that I need to run or process in which you change the Oracle database 11g servers host name, what exactly needs to be executed onto the server so that everything lines up as it should?
