I was always wondering what is the meaning of cluster in that 4 socket within the cluster limitation. Does the cluster means RAC instance. Or is it about clusterware.
So can you run RAC SE instance on cluster which has more the 4 sockets if you limit that instance to nodes with 4 or less sockets in total? Or if you have big cluster running RAC EE can you run on it RAC SE on one or two nodes (pined) if total sockets count for those nodes does not exceed 4.
