FAQ
I'm looking at the NetApp install procedure for 9i RAC and it says that
$ORACLE_HOME is not to be shared across the cluster nodes. Why? Is this
really impossible? I understand that the files under the
$ORACLE_BASE/admin/ORACLE_SID/?dump directories (and other files) should not
be shared but is there any REAL reason the executables can't be shared? Has
anyone done this on NetApp? Curious.

so we're RAC'ing on the toaster too.)

    It makes it possible to upgrade without bringing the entire cluster down.

    On an installation on a Tru64 Cluster, with the Cluster-File-System, there
    *is* only 1 ORACLE_HOME, shared by both nodes.
    I don't see why it cannot be done on another platforms, provided that the
    platform allows the file-system to be mounted on both nodes concurrently.

    Upgrades? We don't need no stinking upgrades... because this is a test
    setup. I'd figured on making ORACLE_HOME local for production for that same
    reason. The NetApp install doc makes it sound like an absolute requirement
    without explaining the reasoning.

    Always the documentation critic...
