    Your question is ambiguous. Can you please invest a bit more effort to explain what you have installed and plan to do?

    Generally, you cannot use a Linux cluster as a substitute for running Oracle RAC. Oracle RAC provides the required software and infrastructure to be able to run a single database on multiple nodes. It requires to install RAC on at least 2 nodes and special shared storage devices providing block level access. The later is typically iSCSI or Infinitiband or Fiber cable, or Oracle Direct NFS.
