Hypervisor : Virtual Box 4.2.6
Openfiler version : 2.99

Using virtualBox, I am setting up a 2-node RAC node on Oracle Linux.
I have a 3rd VM which runs openfiler ( NAS )

For using SCAN feauture, I would like to run a DNS service as mentioned in the article below


http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/linux/dns-configuration-for-scan.php

I don't want to run the DNS service in any of the two RAC nodes. Instead of creating a separate VM just for the DNS , I am thinking of running it in the Openfiler VM.

Openfiler is running in a Linux Distro called rPath. I am not sure if the packages mentioned in the above oracle-base.com article is available in this distro. Has anyone run a similair DNS service in the Openfiler OS ?
