That's about what I have heard. You don't run RAC systems without expecting complications and a big requirement to have available expertise 24 x 7 ... or at least you don't run them well.

If I understand him correctly ( and at times he does not always seem like he wants to put all his cards on the table ) it was some kind of special test system running RAC one node.

Not that those types of systems should have big problems in an upgrade but that's a pretty atypical setup from a normal RAC system. Could Oracle have missed doing some testing of upgrades for systems like that?

These days it seems like Oracle has problems testing almost anything! Received on Mon Mar 01 2010 - 16:47:19 CST
