Yes you have to use ASM or NFS for the RAC Storage.

Its hard.. Best way is to use CFS and ServiceGuard.

Re: oracle rac iscsi without SG

great to ear, but let me understand why it is hard... because some iscsi restriction or some sort of limitation of iscsi initiator on hp-ux.

i hope you can answer me

Thanks again

Re: oracle rac iscsi without SG

Well HP don't certify iSCSI for Serviceguard with their HP-UX software iSCSI initiators due to potential IO fencing issues - for a straight RAC cluster without Serviceguard you will have to ask Oracle - their support site is pretty vague - the RAC FAQ seems to indicate support for Windows and Linux, but says nothing about other platforms. I would want a formal statement from Oracle before I would consider doing this.
