Hi All,

I am trying to set up a 10g RAC on Linux Red Hat AS 2.1

I have 2 servers for the database instances, and another 1 for the database files. I have got it into my head that the database files can be located on a physically separate server over a network (like a NAS) using OCFS. However, when I got to the point of "share" the partition on the "database" server, is seems that I have got completely the wrong end of the stick.

The "Cluster" files need to be on shared disk system that is physically connected to the instance servers - is this the case?

If so, can someone recommend a scaleable bit of hardware (preferable Dell) that I can use with 2+ nodes to support the database files of the RAC. If not, can someone please enlighten me.
