hello
please confirm the following
1- the voting disk should be on shared storage
2- the OCR should be on shared storage
3- the database files ( datafiles..control files) should be on shared storage
4- what about the the clusterware files ( local for each node or shared ?) which one is recommended
5- what about also the the oracle server files ( local for each node or shared ?) which one is recommended

thanks

The voting disk must reside on shared disk.

The OCR must reside on shared disk that is
accessible by all of the nodes in your cluster.

thankx for kind help
thanks that was really helpfull
just one more clarification:

groups: oinstall and dba and user oracle should exist on both nodes with the same ids ?right ?
plus
let us suppose that i have three shared disk using (sun storage)
d1,d2,d3
if on nodeA i mounted these disks as /u01/vd , /u02/ocr/ , /u03/oradata
for the voting disk, the ocr and the database files respectively

then on nodeB i should mount the same disks using the same mount points :
/u01/vd , /u02/ocr/ , /u03/oradata ? right
thanks again

Shared means both nodes have the same MOUNT points because oracle would be installed on there local disks
but the files for database must resides on the SHARED LOCATION and BOTH NODE WOULD ACCESS THE SAME LOCATION.

hello again
just some few more clarifications:

on node A and B :
created /u01/app/oracle as the oracle_base
created /u01/app/oracle/db_1 as oracle_home for oracle server binairies
created /u01/app/crs home for cluster binairies
is that right?

shall i have the cluster home on different mount pount like /u02/crs
since the documentaion says that root should be the owner of oracle cluster

thanks
