Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.1 for Oracle RAC

User368268 Newbie
Currently Being Moderated




We have two SPARC T4-2 servers and ZFS 7120 storage with Fibre Channel connectivity. Our objective is to run Oracle RAC with half the number of cores that are available on T4-2 server. We won't  be using the remaining cores. We would like to just reconfigure the primary domain with half the number of cores and install Oracle RAC software.  I understand that it is a good practice to run Oracle RAC in root domain by dedicating entire PCIe root complex to the domain but some of my colleagues think it will be difficult to manage the environment by end user. Is it a good practice to run Oracle RAC in OVM Server for SPARC Control Domain instead of root/IO/guest domain? If not, please let me know the disadvantages.
