Hi,

I'm planning an Oracle 9i RAC Installation on two IBM XSeries X440 Type 8687 / Intel Xeon Dual 1,9 Ghz with FAStT900 Storagesystem 1TB and RedHat Advances Server 2.1 Kernel 2.4.09.3
There are some local disks I would prefer to install OS and RDBMS SW and using the SAN Storage only for database datafiles ..

I would like to know about the pitfalls and best practices esp. concerning raw devices compared to oscf file system.

TIA

regards
