We did migrate off RAC but I did not have any big problems with 10g RAC on hpux.

Why are you trying to practice some kind of strange RAC one node upgrade? For any kind of realistic learning experience you might really want to use a "more real" RAC configuration.

You might want to get some kind of testing lab that is isolated from the rest of your environment where you can do what you want with IP addresses etc. Received on Fri Feb 26 2010 - 12:24:11 CST
