Goal

What is the configuration of file cellip.ora to add the Storage Cell X5-2 to the existing Exadata X2-2 or X3-2 or X4-2.

 

Suppose the existing Exadata is a quarter rack there would be only 3 lines in the cellip.ora file, one for each storage cells which pre-exists.

Example :

[oracle@db01:/etc/oracle/cell/network-config ] $ cat cellip.ora
cell="192.168.10.3"
cell="192.168.10.4"
cell="192.168.10.5"

Now with the addition of Storage Cell X5-2, should there be one line or 2 lines in the file cellip.ora of each DB Nodes?

cell="192.168.10.3"
cell="192.168.10.4"
cell="192.168.10.5"
cell="192.168.10.6" <<========== The new line of private network Storage Cell X5-2
cell="192.168.10.7" <<========== The new line of private network Storage Cell X5-2

OR

cell="192.168.10.3"
cell="192.168.10.4"
cell="192.168.10.5"
cell="192.168.10.6;192.168.10.7" <<==========The new line of private network Storage Cell X5-2

What's the correct method to add the Storage cell X5-2 in the Exadata X3-2 ?
