Re: New architecture using Clusterware

we are using Linux, Grid Infrastructure + ASM (5 node cluster) for a HA active/passive databases for over a year. There are some configuration/architecture topics which need closer attention, but when done, works fine.
At the beginning, we have used ACFS for oracle_homes but after some serious issues, we switched back to local homes. OSS finally comes up with workaround for defining resource dependencies and since then we noticed no issue.
So, at the bottom, positive experience, there are some ideas for possible improvements ... but some other time :-)
