Getting one more IP address is a significant problem? I am just not understanding why that might pose such a problem.

I guess you could file a bug report on this and see where you get.

As people discover what is required relevant to an 11.2 upgrade it seems like it will fall into a planning process. Maybe you are out there on the early discovery path blazing a trail for other people here.

Do you really need RAC? What approach exactly would you have recommended Oracle to follow in warning people that they would be needing this significant item? Received on Fri Feb 26 2010 - 17:52:36 CST
