Hi Ulf,

SC 3.2 will offer two zone integration models.
1. the ha container as you know it from SC3.1 U4
2. the zone integration which uses a zone as a virtual node. here the 
combination of nonde:zone represents a node for the resourcegroups  nodelist.

Unfortunatly HA Oracle will not be integrated for failover zone at SC3.2 GA it 
needs some pressure to FBC 1465 to make it happen. So you still have to decide 
for which concept to go.
You can currently leverage the containers script of smf componets to integrate 
Oracle into failover zones. If you need more information about the pros and 
cons for both concepts I point you to  the CEC presentation Thorsten Frueauf 
and I were giving.
