    Rac Windows/2000

    Hi OPS/RAC Gurus,
    It is possible to partition Storage Area Newtwork(SAN) hard disk into Oracle Clustered File(OCF) System, and NTFile System(NTFS), for staging of RAC Oracle Database, and a sandalone Oracle database on same node, in a two node Microsoft Cluster on Windows/2000 environment ?


    Thanks in advance

    assuming you mean an Oracle Cluster and not a MS cluster as of course RAC does work on a windooze cluster. But yes, you can mix and match ocfs and ntfs on your SAN if you so desire.

    Steve,
    Thanks for your reply. Let me clarify my question. Assuming a Oracle Database is running on RAC environemnt on a two node cluster(Windows/Oracle cluster). It is possible to create a non clustered, database on either of these nodes of the same cluster?, sharing SAN.

    Thanks

    it sure is possible, in fact our config is OCFS w/ RAC for our HR db
    and then I have a rman/em instance (no rac) with datafiles on ocfs. Who wants to pay $10,000/processor for your maintenace db if rac is not necessary.
