Hi Folks,

We are planning to implement a Sun SPARC based 10g R2 cluster.

I see from the oracle link

 That following storage options

  1. Solaris Volume Manager for Sun Cluster
  2. VERITAS Volume Manager (VxVM) with the cluster feature
  3. Sun StorEdge QFS shared file system with hardware RAID support or with Solaris Volume Manager for Sun Cluster
  4. Network Appliance network-attached storage (NAS) devices
  5. Oracle Automatic Storage Management (ASM)

We are looking at ASM but if we choose ASM then how will the Voting Disk and CRS would be managed? Do we still need Sun Cluster for managing this alone or how do you manage it?. Thanks in advance

Best Regards

Sriram Kumar
