Why?I need to create a RAC cluster at a client site where they only have a NFS file server device.
To ASM or not ASM?
Option 2 : ASM on NFSYou can make use of ASM with NFS by creating shared files on NFS that will act as Raw devices to ASM. The basic steps are:
- Create and mount NFS share
- Create blank files using dd command
- Use ASMCA to create a new diskgroup, set discovery string to the path where above files live
