Oracle certifies Sun Cluster 3.2 for RAC 9i/10g on S9/S10 SPARC

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.

Comments:

Now if only they could support Solaris x86-64 the say way they support SPARC and Linux x86-64 (lets just say those of us on an x4600 get to wait a year or so between the sparc release and the eventual x86 release)

I assume you refer to the time until the specific Oracle RAC release is available - I agree. And I hope customers express their need to Oracle as well. RAC 10gR2 64 & 32-bit is certified with Sun Cluster 3.1 on Solaris 10 x86-64 today. Sun does already support it also on Sun Cluster 3.2, and are in the process to get it certified with Oracle as soon as possible.
