Oracle certifies Sun Cluster 3.2 for RAC 10gR2 64 & 32-bit on x86-64
By tf on Oct 18, 2007
Finally Oracle now also certified RAC 10gR2 64 & 32-bit for Sun Cluster 3.2 running on the Solaris 10 x86/x64 platform. You can verify this if you have a Metalink account, in the "Certify" column, clicking on the section "View Certifications by Platform", selecting "Solaris Operating System x86-x64" and then selecting "Real Application Clusters".
Together with the certification mentioned in my previous blog on the SPARC platform, you can fully leverage the recently documented "Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA) from Sun and Oracle" solution. Details are available within the published white paper and presentation.
The BigAdmin document "Installation Guide for Solaris Cluster 3.2 Software and Oracle 10g Release 2 Real Application Clusters" describes a detailed, step-by-step guide for installing the Solaris 10 11/06
Operating System, Solaris Cluster (formerly 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. Those instructions are valid for SPARC and x86-x64.
