The dba team and I (UNIX admin) are being asked to create a shared
ext4 filesystem across a number of nodes. I believe this is to
enable us to remove Veritas Cluster Filesystem (VCFS); but, that's
just a suspicion.
So, the questions: has anyone used ASM to create a shared storage
filesystem across nodes that are not in any way otherwise related to
oracle products? I know the dbas create shared filesystems via CRS;
however, I've not seen ext4 being used. Is that possible/supported/a
If anyone has any information, documentation, etc, I'd appreciate
getting a pointer.
Thanks for the response. I'm hearing rumors that sanity may be
prevailing. I'm on a trip atm, and the only thing I saw was the
service call asking for this to happen.
We (a minion and I) keyed in on the non-cluster aware filesystem on a clustered disk storage contradiction as well. Other that common
sense, I was hoping for a link which said "these are the filesystems
that oracle supports on ASM". My googling didn't show anything like
If it turns out that sanity doesn't prevail, we'll have to start the
Thanks again for the info and for the link Haven't looked at it yet
but it's definitely on the to-do list.
