major & minor no in Oracle RAC setup

We are building Oracle RAC setup on HP-UX 11.31 OS servers. 2 node cluster.

Shared disk need to have same major & minor no. on both the nodes without mounting it.

Is it possible to have same major & minor no. on both the nodes for the same shared raw device.

Please let me know the procedure.

Re: major & minor no in Oracle RAC setup

Shalom,

First you need shared storage.

After this storage is recognized by system follow this procedure:

vgexport the volume group once completely set up:
http://www.docs.hp.com/en/B2355-90698/ch05s07.html

Use preview (-p) and mapfile (-m) to create the export.

Then vgimport it to the same node. You will need to repeat part of the vgcreate process.

vgimport from shared storage:
