I found the information from SUN. SUN StorEdge QFS support all types of Oracle RAC files. Here is the url for SUN documentation.
Thanks Kevin, for your detailed explaination.
Thanks Alex, I will read the blogs later.
Yes, for your datafiles you can use CFS, AMS or combination of both. Likewise, for FRA you can use CFS or ASM.
If you want to mirror using ASM be careful - there is quite a flaw there. <shameless_plug>I have recently did couple posts in the blog - http://oracloid.blogspot.com/2006/05/vldb-with-asm.html and http://oracloid.blogspot.com/2006/05/flash-recovery-area-on-asm.html. </shameless_plug>
This is of no concern if you don't plan to let ASM do the mirroring between two failure groups (like two storage boxes).
