    How to configure shared disks for RAC template

    user7757478
      Hi experts,

      Im still on my way to setup a RAC based on the VM template (11gR2 for Linux x86_64). Even that I studied lots of documents and websites Ive still some questions about the shared disks that I have to use for a production environment:
      1.) Do I have to have a shared disk for the /OVS repository mapped to both VM server? When and how to configure it?
      2.) for the RAC I need 5 additional shared physical disks. But what is the sizing? I didnt find any hint how they are used inside the VMs to build up the RAC (e.g. xvdc is used for oradata, crs ...??).

      Maybe I missed the right document then please send me the corresponding link.

      Thanks & regards
