I wrote "ORCL" for example, it's not their real name :) Anyway, it was not my idea to have the same name for all databases :/

I'v made a simple test. I have started clustered ASM on nodes: rac1, rac2, rac3 with one disk group. Then, I started clustered database with db_name "ORCL" on nodes: rac1 and rac2. Then I tried to install single instance database on node rac3 (with db_name "ORCL") on the same diskgroup. When installer stated copying data file I've got "ORA-00304 requested INSTANCE NUMBER is busy". So now I'm not sure it's possible :/

When I've changed db_name to ORCL everything was fine. Received on Wed Feb 04 2009 - 02:33:27 CST
