Yeah I saw it a while back when testing in a similar config. Lots of varied opinions on OCFS2 and stability/useability ... etc. There are some timeout config thingie's one can play around with ( check out Jeffrey Hunter's site ).

One of the formerly frequent posters on cdos when he stayed on topic recommended only deploying RAC in situations like this in a 4 node configuration. I don't think that is an official recommendation from Oracle but I could be wrong. Received on Tue Apr 14 2009 - 07:12:58 CDT
