Host OS           : Windows 7 (64-bit )
Hypervisor : Virtual Box 4.2.6

I am planning to set up a 2-node RAC using VirtualBox.
We are going to use OpenFiler as the storage appliance. So, totally 3 VMs (2 RAC Nodes + 1 OpenFiler VM)

Once the LUNs are available , should we be running losetup command ?
losetup /dev/loop1 /disk1
as mentioned in

Re: iscsi or SAN

Isn't partition creation using fdisk enough ?

If we use shared LUNs created from withing VirtualBox , should we be running losetup ?
