    join 2 standalone servers

      Hi,

      If I installed 2 standalone Grid infrastructures, can I join these together in 1 cluster?

      version is 11203, windows 2008R2

      Regards,

      Peter

          NO you cannot.
          Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a standalone server is the software that includes Oracle Restart and Oracle ASM. Oracle combines the two infrastructure products into a single set of binaries that is installed as the Oracle Grid Infrastructure home.
          In order to have them in cluster you have to install Oracle Grid Infrasturcture for Cluster, which includes > Clusterware,ASM,Oracle Restart components.

          I think you are only have Standalone grid infrastucture with you which includes only ASM and Oracle restart but no Clusterware. So please install Grid Infrastuctre for cluster then make cluster.
