I have to setup a RAC in hp-ux itanium using asm. I've gone throught the Oracle and hp manuals, and they seem to diverge when it came to use asm (or the information they provide is too confuse if you have to put your the hands on the job).
I want to use asm, and for that I believe I don't need the serviguard, because I could use raw devices for the CRS and CSS, but the Customer want to use the shared disks to store exp files from 9i and 10g, so raw is not an option. I talked with people from HP and they told me that the only supported config is to create logical volumes using Serviguard and create the ASM groups, on top of it.
I must say that for me it doesn't make any sense at all, does anybody had done a config like the one I want.
ServiceGuard for the CRS, CSS and an aditional volume for the export files
Disks devices to create the asm groups
