Want to know more about the installation/other details:

So stay tuned!

First of all thanks for that great article on Oracle RAC right here,
http://www.dbasupport.com/oracle/ora10g/RACingAhead0101.shtml

I started working towards setting up RAC in solaris using your approach..i have a windows machine with vmware installed in it.. So far installed 2 virtual Solaris10 OS ...i assigned 2 different IP address to both solaris m/cs and now i can ping/telnet/ftp b/w those machines as well as from host..So before proceeding furthur i have a question for you, Can i try your windows approach with my need..Will i be successfull setting up RAC with Vmware in Solaris?

Can you pls point me to a direction regarding this? All i want is to run RAC in Solaris . What do you think are the challenges which i will have to face?

thanks, rajesh

There is still some talk on Oracle supporting Solaris 10 but I have heard folks having tried that and it seems to have worked perfectly for them.

Sun Cluster is one option but I think if you pick up this installation doc from Oracle, you should be able to succeed.

I personally do refer to manual all the time. Try it. And let me know if it worked out ;-). In the meantime I'll have something ready next week. (a three node cluster)
