Stephen,

I'm not sure why you are running a standby if everything is pointing
at the same filer (using NFS, right?).  From your description it
sounds like everything is on the NAS (including $ORACLE_ADMIN) and all
the databases should have individual names.  If server A dies, walk
over to server B and resurrect the databases whose instances were on
A.

If you don't have all of the volumes mounted on each server, you'll
just have one added step of adding a mount.

Am I missing something?  (Easy enough to do...)

Steven
