Guys & Gals, I've done Oracle RAC install on Linux before, but noiw I'm being asked to do so on AIX 5.3 and I seem to be getting mixed signals from Oracle. The client originally wants to install AIX 5.3 with GPFS, but now to save a buck has decided not to install GPFS, but to instead use OCFS. On the other hand the Oracle docs are telling me that a clustered file system is only needed for the Oracle binaries. So the question, do we need OCFS, or GPFS, or neither, or both?? Anyone really know?? ______________________________________________________________ Dick Goulet / Capgemini North America P&C / East Business Unit Senior Oracle DBA / Hosting Office: 508.573.1978 / Mobile: 508.742.5795 / www.capgemini.com Fax: 508.229.2019 / Email: richard.goulet@xxxxxxxxxxxxx 45 Bartlett St. / Marlborough, MA 01752 Together: the Collaborative Business Experience ______________________________________________________________ This message contains information that may be privileged or confidential and is the property of the Capgemini Group.
