Have fun Kartik.

Along with the free oracle documentation for installing RAC I highly recommend that you spend a bunch of time checking out and following some of the fully developed tutorials for installing configuring and testing RAC by Jeffrey Hunter.

You can find his website at ...

Before you get into the more difficult area of installing RAC across multiple servers ( where you need something for shared disk ) you might try Jeff's guide for a complete RAC install onto 1 server using vmware.

It requires only a modest machine with 2 gig of RAM ... once you have tried and completed something like that you may be ready to keep experimenting.

The article that notes how to do this is ...Create an Oracle RAC 10g Release 2 using VMware Workstation 5 - (CentOS 4.4) Received on Mon Jun 01 2009 - 11:51:26 CDT
