Hi

I am an Oracle developer and I am a newbie to the ORACLE RAC world.
My objective is to configure and study the performance of our database in a Oracle 10g RAC setup.
So far, this database has been running in single-server only.

From the documentation that I have read, ORACLE requires some Cluster software for running RAC.

We have two servers setup in a Sun-Cluster mode. I think Sun Cluster 6.0 has been used.
Can I use these cluster servers for the RAC testing? If so, what steps should I use?
Do I need to do any changes to the Sun-Cluster setup for the sake of RAC? Or can I get started directly wth RAC?

All your inputs will be very valuable.

Raja

This is a question for 1) you DBA and 2) you SA
This is not a point that a developer should care.

Hi
I am doing a feasibility study of our application on ORACLE 10g RAC.
I am expected to certify that our application runs fine/better on ORACLE RAC.
Based on this certification, we hope to roll this out to our customers and explain to them the benefits of running our database on RAC

Certification is not developer business.
If you want to test your application in RAC, ask your DBA to install a RAC for you.
This is not an easy way, you have to be a senior DBA to configure RAC.

Just to add,
>>study the performance of our database in a Oracle 10g RAC setup
Oracle RAC has nothing special to do with performance. It can do load balancing, but cannot improve anything magically. With RAC you only avoid a single node failure.
Sun Cluster is not an absolute requirement. You can install Oracle 10g RAC on nodes with or without sun cluster.
>> ORACLE requires some Cluster software for running RAC
Which is actually Oracle related stuff provided by Oracle.
Once you have configured the shared disks and use ASM appropriately , create some filesystems (OCFS/whatever) and install CRS, the database creation is pretty much straight forward.

As it is already been said here, it requires a lot of System and Database Administrator level of work.
