I really hope someone has experience with this scenario - if you believe Sun
and Oracle, it's rather frequent, yet....
Solaris 9, 2-node cluster with Sun Cluster 3.1 u3.
I have, of course, selected a DID device as the quorum device.
Allright, so now I start installing Oracle 10g, and I wan to install it in
"cluster-aware" form, so that it relies on SC.
At a certain point, I am prompted to enter the "Voting Disk": "Cluster
Synchronization Services (CSS) voting disk is used to arbitrate ownership of
the cluster among cluster nodes in the event of a complete private network
failure. Specify a shared raw device, or cluster filesystem file that will
be visible by the same name on all nodes of the cluster. A CSS voting disk
will be created for you, and will require approximately 20MB of disk space."
To which I thought "WTF???". This is exactly what the quorum device is for,
and yes, I did install UDLM. And I also read the "Pre-installation Tasks for
RAC on Solaris", but nothing is mentioned regarding CSS vs Sun Cluster
What am I doing wrong.
