Re: asm on serveral nodes (no RAC)

We are having pretty much described configuration for a year or so. We've started with 5 node RAC on ASM (Windows), 2 instances on each node (don't ask me why), instances are at least one shared diskgroup. Than after we've suffered for some time, we've switched to configuration, where we have db1 on first 3 nodes and db2 on other 2 nodes, sharing at least one diskgroup (two RAC databases on different nodes sharing same storage and clustered ASM) and it's working fine like this for a while.

So technically speaking, I 100% agree with Dan (and we are running in production on this configuration), that there are no technical limitations to what Amihay has asked (except two that Dan has mentioned).

Of course I also agree with Alex, that I would call configuration with CRS and clustered ASM as RAC.
