RE: OCFS2

Francisco
   
  I agree that Oracle Backup will replace veritas netbackup in coming month as 
I think it is still in Beta plan. As we are mvoing all of our databast to 10g[ 
only 8 in our environment] and so version is no issue. 
   
  The only issue is as how I can use OCFS2 in coming month as replacement for 
Veritas Cluster Failover. I want to make sure that I can do the Automatic 
failover or like fnctionality.
   
  Thanks

        Sanjay,
    The answer is: YES an NO.
   
  1.       Only the release 2 of 10g have the ability to take a direct TAPE 
BACKUP.
  2.       In release 2 of 10g, OCFS doesn?t work. You will need to use OCFS2, 
that it is not supported yet.
  3.       Yes, they can replace the Veritas software (NetBackup and Volume 
manager) but does not at the same time. You can use OCFS with release 1 of 10g, 
to remove the Veritas Volume Manager, but you will need the release 2 of 10g to 
remove the NetBackup, so?.it does not so easy.
   
   
    ?.please, beat me if I wrong??

    Hi

     

    I am looking for some views regarding OCFS vs Veritas Cluster File system. 
Currently we are using Veritas CFS/VolumeMgr as well as Veritas Netbackup. My 
manager ask me if we can remove the Veritas Software with 10g.

     

    I know we don't need Volumne manager as we have EMC San and I will use ASM 
for moving the existing dB as we are in final phase of Oracle 10g upgradation.

     

    I also worked with ORacle new Backup software that can take care of Veritas 
netbackup Oracle Agent license as we are only using Veritas Netbackup for 
Oracle backup

     

    The only doubt is that how OCFS replace the Veritas Cluster software 
without using RAC. I have ask the similar question to one of the Oracle Reps in 
one of the Technology day and he replied that we can do that by using some API 
but then never reply back on the document. I am using Veritas CLuster software 
for some applicat ion where database is running in ActivePassive mode. What I 
mean to say is that Database resource are mounted on one server and if there is 
any issue on the server linked to Hardware or Oracle, it will failover to 
Second node and mount all resource on second node. Is it possibel with OCFS

     

    Thanks for your suggestions/advice/comments
