This article is intended for Oracle on Linux Database and System Administrators, particularly those intending to install (or migrate to) Oracle 10g Release 2 (10.2.0) Real Application Cluster (RAC) on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5/Oracle Linux 5 (RHEL5/OL5). The article is solely intended to describe the configuration of raw devices against singlepath devices on RHEL5/OL5 in preparation for RAC Clusterware usage.
Examples were taken from a working system of the following configuration:
- Oracle Linux 5 (GA) - 2.6.18-8.el5
- Oracle Clusterware 10g Release 2 (10.2.0)
- Shared storage for Clusterware files served via iSCSI via NetApp filer
This document differs to <Note.564580.1> that describes how to configure raw devices against multipath devices. This Note describes how to configure raw devices against singlepath devices only.
