    Installation of Oracle 10g RAC on Redhat

    Hi,

    I have been given the task of the installation of Oracle 10g RAC 2 node cluster in Redhat LInux using VMware. Most of the pre-requisite task till SSH congifuration is finished. After the disk partition for OCR, Votingdisk and ASM the shared paritition is visible only to first node and not to second. To overcome this, should I need to install ocfs2 to continue installation.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Regards.

    1) VMWARE insnt supported for Oracle and RAC

    2) the disks need to be visible to all nodes, you must do whatever needs to be done for that to happen

    As appointed by Dave VMWare is not certified for Ora10g RAC which doesn't mean it wouldn't work. It means you are on your own which is not a nice to have scenario for a production environment.
    Why? most probably because Mr E is pushing his own virtualization solution.

    Is your production AIX environment running Ora10g RAC?

    So you are "trying to create a test environment"...

    How are you planning to test the impact of an IBM-AIX Oracle patch on a RedHat/VMWare environment?

    How are you planning to test the impact of performance tuning changes designed to improve an IBM-AIX installation on a RedHat/VMWare environment?
