Preparing for Oracle 10g RAC on two Dell E520n - any heads u

Post by bmoshier » 2007/04/08 23:12:24

Hello,

This week I'll be looking at installing CentOS on two Dell E520n using IEEE-1394b (Firewire 800) with Maxtor drives. Once the OS is up I'll install Oracle (which I know means changing the kernel for proper Firewire support).

I read and noticed several thread in several different forums concerning the Dell E520n, CentOS, and Oracle RAC (10g?). I'm wondering if anyone can tell me their experience so I can avoid reinventing the problem. :-D

I especially noticed two threads about the conflicts between the onboard 1 Gbit NIC and several people's Firewire card. While one person said there was an easy fix, I have yet to see a posting with this experience / fix.
