Operating System Requirements: Network

The fastest network possible (10 gigabits preferred) should be used and redundancies installed at all points of failure.

The system where MA is to be deployed should be configured to use both TCP/IP and UDP services, including DNS.
Oracle GoldenGate supports both IPv4 and IPv6, and the two protocols can be used together.

Oracle GoldenGate requires some unreserved and unrestricted TCP/IP ports, the number of which depends on the number and types of processes in the configuration.

Firewalls must be configured to accept connections through the Oracle ports assigned to each server/service of the MA deployment.

Operating System Requirements: Privileges

For Linux/UNIX installations, the user who installs Oracle GoldenGate must have read and write privileges on the Oracle GoldenGate installation directory.

The Extract and Replicat processes and MA components that are part of MA deployments must operate as an operating system user that has privileges to read, write and delete files and subdirectories in the Oracle GoldenGate directory.

The utility used to create and manage MA deployments requires privileges to control the other Oracle GoldenGate processes.

Extract and Replicat processes should be run by OS users solely dedicated to Oracle GoldenGate.
