Sun Cluster Data Service for Oracle RAC Guide for Solaris OS

Adding Storage Resources for Oracle Files

Sun Cluster 3.2 introduces resource types that provide fault monitoring and automatic fault recovery for global device groups and file systems.

If you are using global device groups or shared file systems for Oracle files, add storage resources to manage the availability of the storage on which the Oracle software depends.

Before adding storage resources for Oracle files, ensure that you have upgraded resources in the RAC framework resource group. For more information, see Upgrading Resources in the RAC Framework Resource Group.

For detailed instructions for adding storage resources for Oracle files, see Registering and Configuring Storage Resources for Oracle Files.

Follow these instructions only if you are adding storage resources to an existing configuration of storage management schemes. If you are extending an existing configuration of Sun Cluster Support for Oracle RAC by supporting additional storage management schemes, see the following sections:
