Oracle certifies Sun Cluster 3.2 for RAC 9i/10g on S9/S10 SPARC
By tf on Jul 11, 2007
Finally Oracle did officially certify RAC 9.2/10gR1/10gR2 64-bit on Solaris 9 and Solaris 10 SPARC running with Sun Cluster 3.2. You can verify this if you have a Metalink account, in the "Certify" column, searching in the section "Product Version and Other Selections: RAC for Unix On Solaris Operating System (SPARC)".
There got also an Installation Guide for Solaris Cluster 3.2 Software and Oracle 10g Release 2 Real Application Clusters published on the BigAdmin System Administration Portal.
It is a detailed, step-by-step guide for installing the Solaris 10 11/06 Operating System, Sun Cluster 3.2 software, the QFS 4.5 cluster file system, and Oracle 10g Release 2 Real Application Clusters (Oracle 10gR2 RAC). It also provides detailed instructions on how to configure QFS and Solaris Volume Manager so they can be used with Oracle 10gR2 RAC.
Last but not least I want to reference the white paper Making Oracle Database 10G R2 RAC Even More Unbreakable, which explains a lot reasons why the combination of Sun Cluster and Oracle RAC is very benefitial.
