Oracle 10.1.0.4 RAC HP requirements

Hello,

I was told that when Oracle 10.1.0.4 (RAC) comes out, it requires ServiceGuard 11.16 which in turn requires HPUX 11.11.04. We currently run ServiceGuard 11.15 and HPUX 11.11.03. Where can I find the HPUX & ServiceGuard requirements for for Oracle 10.1.0.4?

Thank you,
Elizabeth

I was under the impression that RAC kind of does clustering all by itself and ServiceGuard was not required.

The best place to find this out is http://metalink.oracle.com or http://technet.oracle.com

If SG is required the 11.16 upgrade should not be too much trouble with a standard rolling upgrade. You also need a lot of patches on each node after the software install.

Elizabeth,

according to this paper on ORACLE RAC (10G), "third" party clustering software is not required anymore :

Saying that you may still require ServiceGuard for non-Oracle application.
