I know that Tru64 Unix uses persistent reservations - it is shown on one of CV-EVA's web pages, but I have no idea if the full spec. is implemented.

Obviously not an answer to your question but, did you ask Veritas and Oracle about this? I think you might have their certification to try a RAC-Veritas-EVA setup

All,

to the best of my knowledge Veritas and Oracle will not be certifying RAC on EVA5000 as the controllers don't support active/active pathing. The new EVA is said to have active/active and most likely would be certified in due time. Hope this helps.
