I just want to check whether we can have multiple grid installations running in parallel on same configuration. For eg: A 3 node RAC having 11g and 12c RAC configurations running in parallel.
I understand that we can have multiple oracle database installations under a grid , but not sure of multiple grid installations.
Can someone guide me here ?
You can not have multiple GI running on same server.
