RE: Sun HA Monitoring and Oracle 9

Scott (or anyone runing HA 2.2 wishing to upgrade to 9i): I noticed you did not receive a response from this message a couple of months back.

We're in same situation (Sun Cluster 2.2, wishing to upgrade to Oracle 9i). It's not clear from the Oracle certification matrix if this is supported. (Clearly not supported if you're running RAC, but we're not) We're not convinced we want to upgrade to Sun cluster 3.0 (and certainly not clear we want to pay for it.)

I'm wondering if there are others with this configuration, and if so what you decided to do. Thanks in advance for any information.
