Re: Oracle RAC cluster Resource for External Application

Surachart,

thanks for your confirmation, in better and formal terms, of what I said :))

A part from Oracle docs, I add that much better is having a dedicated VIP for 
databases (if you have more than one in the cluster, of couse)in order to 
relocate each db indipendently.
