Tod, Maybe you should check support.microsoft.com there's a KB article 280297 that deals with just that (MS cluster server/volume mount points). There are loads of other mount point related articles..also check out 300415, dealing with 'diskpart', a scriptable command line utility which you can use instead of the diskmanagment gui.. I haven't worked with MSCS and mount points the last years, but I think you should avoid 'dynamic' disks, only use 'basic' disks. Both RAC and ASM only support 'basic', so I wouldn't be surprised if failsafe has the same limitations.. regards, Mario ----- Original Message ---- From: "Sheetz, Todd" <tsheetz_at_atcllc.com> To: oracle-l_at_freelists.org Sent: Wednesday, November 29, 2006 12:48:51 PM Subject: Oracle on Windows Volume Mount Points I currently have Oracle 9i running on Windows clusters using Fail Safe. We are building new 10g clusters still using Fail Safe on Windows 2003 (I fought the Linux battle and lost, let˘s just leave it at that). The system administrators now would like to use Windows volume mount points instead of drive letters for the new clusters. I have been unable to find any documentation or even forum threads that talk about the support of mount points on Windows. Does anyone know of documentation re: Oracle˘s support of this? Is anyone else using this already that can share any experiences? Thanks! Todd M. Sheetz Database Administrator American Transmission Company
