I think the cluster file system might not be the option, because if the customer is looking for Oracle10g Fail-over, he will look into storage_foundation_oracle_HA, and this bundle might no include with cluster file system software.
This time, i have crated a another disk group with a bunch of LUNs, created logical volumes, installed another Oracle10g binary set on one of the the logical volumes, and in the remaining logical volumes i have created raw instance. But still with "hawizard oracle", i am still getting some Java errors at the "mount_point/volume" section. Then i updated my VCS5 to VCS5 MP1, and once again invoked "hawizard oracle", but still it throws same Java errors. java.lang.NullPointerException at vrts.vxcs.wizards.hp.oracle.oracle.pages.MountPage.actOnNext(MountPage.java:469) at vrts.vxcs.wizards.wizard.Wizard.nextPage(Wizard.java:330) at vrts.vxcs.wizards.wizard.Wizard$NextAction.actionPerformed(Wizard.java:553) at javax.swing.AbstractButton.fireActionPerformed(AbstractButton.java:1849) at javax.swing.AbstractButton$Handler.actionPerformed(AbstractButton.java:2169) at javax.swing.DefaultButtonModel.fireActionPerformed(DefaultButtonModel.java:420) at javax.swing.DefaultButtonModel.setPressed(DefaultButtonModel.java:258) at javax.swing.plaf.basic.BasicButtonListener.mouseReleased(BasicButtonListener.java:234) at java.awt.Component.processMouseEvent(Component.java:5553) at javax.swing.JComponent.processMouseEvent(JComponent.java:3093) at java.awt.Component.processEvent(Component.java:5318) at java.awt.Container.processEvent(Container.java:1966) at java.awt.Component.dispatchEventImpl(Component.java:4020) at java.awt.Container.dispatchEventImpl(Container.java:2024) at java.awt.Component.dispatchEvent(Component.java:3868) at java.awt.LightweightDispatcher.retargetMouseEvent(Container.java:4212) at java.awt.LightweightDispatcher.processMouseEvent(Container.java:3892) at java.awt.LightweightDispatcher.dispatchEvent(Container.java:3822) at java.awt.Container.dispatchEventImpl(Container.java:2010) at java.awt.Window.dispatchEventImpl(Window.java:1766) at java.awt.Component.dispatchEvent(Component.java:3868) at java.awt.EventQueue.dispatchEvent(EventQueue.java:463) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpOneEventForHierarchy(EventDispatchThread.java:234) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEventsForHierarchy(EventDispatchThread.java:163) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEvents(EventDispatchThread.java:157) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.pumpEvents(EventDispatchThread.java:149) at java.awt.EventDispatchThread.run(EventDispatchThread.java:110) John Cronin wrote: > It should be possible to use one set of Oracle binaries for multiple > Oracle instances, I think - somebody please correct me if I am wrong. > Unless it was a very strange situation, you would almost certainly > need to have one copy of the identical binaries in identical locations > on each of the three nodes though (or one copy on NFS, or a cluster > filesystem that was globally accessible), so that really wouldn't be > one copy of Oracle binaries, I guess. > > That said, I have generally not done that for the following reasons: > > 1) Disk space keeps getting cheaper and the binaries don't take up > that much space (relatively speaking). > > 2) People virtually always forget to make changes (e.g. patching) to > all three nodes equally - they patch one, or something like that, and > they always get out of sync.
