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
