Anybody using Veritas clustering & MTS?

Post by Richard Armstron » Sat, 21 Jul 2001 08:17:01

A bug (1399256) in Oracle 8.1.7 appears to prevent multithreaded server
being used on Veritas clusters.  I understand that this has something to do
with the MTS dispatchers not being able to connect to the shared or
'floating' IP address used to identify the cluster.

I have read that there is a workaround for this problem involving
modification of some parameters in the Oracle initialisation file.  Does
anybody know anything about this?  I'd be very glad to hear from anybody who
is successfully using Veritas and MTS or from anybody who knows for sure
whether this is possible.

Thanks in advance,
