Current Situation
DB version : Oracle 9i RAC
2 node cluster sharing raw file system disk with only the archive log cross mounted in each local node.

Question:
However, it seemed that the RAC is not working as when 1 node is down, the other node is not responding as well. I suspect it could be due to the cross mounting of the archive log. How to reconfigure the archive log to be in the same share disk or is there any ways for the cluster node to take over?

The best solution would be to use a Cluster Filesystem.

If you need to use NFS, ensure that each instance archives to a local filesystem. These filesystems can then be cross-mounted to the other systems.

Best regards.

Hi Frank,

What is implemented - NFS or CFS?

If a node goes down, its NFS mounts on all other systems will hang. However, if you use LOCAL filesytems for archiving (instead of NFS mounted filesystems), it should not matter.

Please explain how your fileystems are setup in detail.

Best regards.

Hi Frank,

The detail setup is that the 2 nodes have their local archive logs but just that they are cross mounted so that when a backup is performed, both sides are being backup through 1 node.

hi frank,
I have same problem like sianz99 and I used OCFS for my shared disk. But when one of nodes goes down the other won't take over so users cannot login to Oracle Application. The ultimate solution is always restart all services on each machine APPS, CM and database.
Below is an excerpt of alert.log

is there any relation with kernel or OCFS version ?
thanks for advance.
