I want to connect Oracle9i client to a Real Application cluster database.But when I open Net configuration assistant or Net Manager on client to configure Net Services Names configuration, it asks me to enter the name of hosts where database resides ? There are 2 nodes in my RAC cluster.Which hostname should I give.Ideally speaking, my database belongs to both the nodes because it is a shared databse.
Can anyone please help?

SIR,

I THINK YOU CAN ENTER ANY HOST NAME.
TRY IT.

Hi Sreenivasan,
Finally I got the things in place.I simply gave two addresses each having diffrent hostname in tnsnames.ora file and also included load_balance=on in the file.
This allows me to connect to the cluster database even if not all the instances of it are up.
Today I have posted another message related to Transparent Application Failover.Please try to reply to it.I see no reason why Oracle people are so poor at documentation.
