Yes. We have a test system based on the "How to Build a $1000 RAC" whitepaper (, although we spent about $1100. After much ado about everything, it's been up and running on RH9 for almost a month uninterrupted (would've been 2 or 3 months, but we had a planned power outtage while I was out pretending to actually be of some help to my newborn and these boxes are on a desk with no UPS). I've done sporadic tests. A co-worker came over and was wondering what the noisy external SCSI drive was clicking about, we got to talking about HA, and I decided to power off one of the boxes. No TAF or anything, but box #2 went chugging along with only a 1-3 second pause in activity. I've only put a modest load on the RAC, but so far so good. The thing that gets me is anything RedHat and Oracle is a huge pain. RAC only makes it worse. I've just done my second Oracle install on Gentoo Linux without any issues whatsoever. Hmmmm...

My $.02,
