One of our architects asked me if there were any issues with the configuration below?
Apparently we have a project with a client having the HP BL465C and asking if we can use the DL365 or DL385. Plus the rest. He talked to an Oracle salesman who, of course, has no clue.
I don't have any RAC configurations like this so any issues? Didn't think 2 node systems bought us much.

Here is the configuration we discussed & are trying to validate as "Oracle supported"...

  • 2-node RAC cluster (11G):
    1. Node One: HP BL465C (blade using Virtual Connect Ethernet & Virtual Connect Fibre-channel)
    2. Node Two: HP DL365 (stand-alone system)
    3. OS: RedHat Linux AS 5.3 (both systems)
    4. Oracle RAC 11i
    5. EMC DMX4 disk (currently supported microcode level no older than 5671)
    6. Brocade SAN fabric (currently supported FOS level)
