RAC and Wallet

Posted on July 10, 2008. Filed under: Database, DBA/Admin Tips, RAC, TDE | Tags: , |

Is it ok to open the wallet on only one instance in a 2 Node or multi node RAC Architecture?

The answer is NO. You can open the wallet only on one instance(RAC1), but any user who gets connected to the other instance (RAC2), will get the error message ORA-28365: wallet is not open, if they try to access encrypted columns.

As of now, opening and closing of the database wallet is instance specific, even if you place the wallet file in a common location which is accessible to both the instances.

So if you had implemented wallet on a RAC setup, make sure you open the wallet on all individual instances.

You can also use this link to download a script which does this automatically for you.
