We're running RAC on Clusterware and ASM on a three-node cluster of HP DL-585s.

The OS info is:
$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4 (Nahant Update 6)

$ uname -a
Linux pqrac103 2.6.9-67.0.4.ELsmp #1 SMP Fri Jan 18 05:00:00 EST 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Finally, according to opatch:

CRS is w/ no interim patches
ASM is w/ patch #6139547
RAC is w/ no interim patches

Also, though you didn't mention it for your targeted config, on the same Clusterware and ASM, we are also running 11 RAC: RAC is w/ no interim patches

Hope that helps,


PS I know you mentioned 11.1.07 and The only reason we are on and is cause that's what was available when we built the cluster. It's been quite stable, so, we've not bothered with patching, so far.

We're attempting a pilot project for RAC 10g( on 11g clusterware( and 11g ASM., all kernel: 2.6.18-128.el5 on hp servers.

We're having fits with kernel panics, kernel bugs, etc.

Who is running this setup successfully and if you don't mind what is your setup?

thanks, joe
