And in fact, not only is 11g clusterware backward compatible, so is 11g ASM.

I've had a 3-node RAC cluster in production for over a year now, with 11g clusterware, and 11g ASM serving both 11g RAC and 10g RAC databases on the same nodes of the same cluster, with no problems at all.

and in addition its almost impossible to see the requirement to do so. 11g clusterware is backwardly compatible. On Mon, Nov 16, 2009 at 4:12 PM, Matthew Zito <<>> wrote:

This won't work - they both would expect to be the only clusterware on the machine.

Hi all,

Has anyone ever deployed both 10g and 11g clusterware on the same nodes using a different Linux owner/account for each? The clusterware would share the same interconnect but use different VIPs on the same bonded NICs. The clusterware would not manage nor use the same shared storage.
