      Can 2 servers simultaneously mount & write to a 2500 FC array for 11g RAC?

      I have a SUN (Oracle) 2500 FC (Fiber Channel) Array. They are configured with Raid 10 and present the luns etc and I mount the mountpoints as a ufs file system. So I have

      /u01
      /u02
      /u03

      I learned the hard way that I cannot SIMULTANESOULY mount them on 2 different SUN T2000 servers. So I currently hook up 1 server to one, and the other server to the other 2 mountpoints. I have 4 HBAs - 2 in each server for reduandancies. There is no switch.

      I want to do a test / demo of ORacle RAC. BUt RAC needs both computers to access the mountpoint at the same time.

      Can I do this in my current OS (Solars 10 for Sparc).

      I was reading up on it, and it seems I may need SUn Cluster software. I'd rather just do it all in Oracle - I may need to use ASM also I understand.

      Can anybody point me in the right direction. Thanks MH
