i m new to oracle rac,
and i wish to instlall 11g r1 RAC on my laptop having linux 4 as platform (on vmware) ,
for that i prepare 4 partition for that (on node1)
/dev/sdb1 - for ocr
/dev/sdb2 - for voting disk
/dev/sdb3 - for asmdisk group
/dev/sda5 - fro asmdisk group
by assuming external redundacy for ocr and voting disk i kept only one disk
and i configured following in /etc/sysconfig/rawdevices
/dev/raw/raw1 /dev/sdb1 -- ocr
/dev/raw/raw2 /dev/sdb2 -- voting disk
/dev/raw/raw3 /dev/sdb3 -- asmdisk group
/dev/raw/raw4 /dev/sdb5 -- asmdisk group
and my question is how node2 can understat these raw device as shared storage?
thanks for any support
hi thanks for your suggestion ,
this may be ok for VMware , but what about for non-VMWare environment?
how can i make raw device as shared storage?
one more, all the docs that i followed on net , configured node1 partitions as shared storage.
please help me in this regards
they also have the option for creating shared virtual disks
without virtualization, SAN/NAS disks can be attached
it seems to me that you want the LOCAL disk on node1 to behave as shared storage, which is wrong
so what docs did you follow?
