Re: Install Oracle10g RAC on original Oracle9i RAC server with MC/Service Guard

Once you go to 10g, it is basically pointless to run 3rd party clusterware.
It will integrate with 10g, but it really causes many more headaches than it
solves.

Also, it is correct that you can only run one version of clusterware at a
time.
