Good morning,


There are two aspects to this, I assume you are referring to the RDBMS
$ORACLE_HOME/dbs directory. This has indeed to be maintained across all
cluster nodes. The same for the DR cluster-I have a small script that
queries the OCR for all cluster members and uses the passwordless ssh
authentication to copy the script across (mental node: need to extend it
to deal with data guard :) 


For ASM/Grid Infrastructure, things have been simplified - have a look
at Harald van Brederode's blog:


He says that for Grid Infrastructure the password file should propagate
to the local nodes. 


Best regards,


Martin Bach
