    Exclamation File system for cluster files on AIX 6.1

    Hi All,

    I am installing ORACL RAC(Oracle 10gR2) on AIX 6.1. After going thru few documents and posts i really got confused, what file system i should use for my cluster realted files (GPFS / XXXXXX) on AIX6.1. Earlier i was planning to use GPFS for my cluster files (CRS and Voting disk files) and ASM for my database files. Pls Can anybody suggests me what files system should i use and what are the pros and cons of GPFS and other files systems. Thanks a billon for quick response.

    GPFS is licensed so if you have got the license use GPFS for clusterware and database files. Otherwise go for raw/ASM.
