SAN replication is used to replicate the data to the DR storage ie, the underling disks are replicated to DR site. On the SR site , we have only one server on which Both the Grid Infrastructure and oracle home will be installed. Is it possible to bring up the RAC DB on a single node . I haven’t tried this before . Could you help me on this . 28 October, 2011 at 1:12 pm #2162 Saurabh SoodMember Hi Shashi, Yes it is possible to bring it up on one node… for that you need to set the cluster_database=false and threads=1 in the spfile and restore/recover (It will become a single instance database.) If you want it to be RAC then you can use “ONE NODE RAC” new feature for 11gR2.
