You have your point .

But I see the following advantage :

  1. Try to minimize differences between standard installation and RAC installations.
  2. Manage database from remote (client) , stop & start - it will enable us to put it in some application to control it
  3. Reduce the complexity of startup/shutdown scripts (in unix , init.d , shell scripts ) - because we can instruct to the CRS to startup database and listener .
  4. Standard way to work with windows and UNIX
  5. less need for dba knowledge :-)

Well, installing ASM on non-RAC node requires CSS daemon and it creates OCR on a normal file and it's marked as localconfig in ocr.loc. I guess it might create voting disk somewhere as well.

On the other hand, how can I put it... I would seriously doubt it's worth to add the complexity of CRS for something that can be handled in more elegant way.

I wander if you can use voting disk and ocr on as regualer files instead of raw device ?

this may help to install single instance node database , as be rac ready and it may be enable us to use srvctl as tool to start/stop database from remote in automatic manner.
