the fine print always gets you…………

we were almost ready with our 10g RAC install on Solaris 10 and NetApp Filer. Until I read a small print on the Install guide

“For Standard Edition RAC Installations, ASM is the only supported storage option for database files”

while NFS Filesystem(supported NetApp configuration) is supported for the Cluster software it is not supported for database files.

Also if you look at the link below

while Solaris Containers model seems to be the way to go (helps you better manage your resources for different applications giving an isolated environment for your applications – “RAC is not supported on a capped container model”

more to come on configuring NAS based files for use in an Automatic Storage Management Disk Group


  • yes, standard edition with rac is a kind of marketing joke, you are also limited to use 4 cpu per cluster, so the chance is big that you will end up with EE.

  • and with dual core I think you are limited to 3 - we may get off the RAC model totally because of the container approach we are taking now.....but again infrastructure changes are something I can voice my opinion on - management tends have the final say on it
