RAC on Oracle Shared_Home
We are planning on doing a pilot test for our BI Oracle instances using Oracle RAC 10gR2 on Linux. According to SAP's doc they want you to use a shared oracle_home vs. keeping an oracle_home local per sae each node in the cluster. Why is this? This limits you on minimizing down time and voids the idea of doing rolling patching. The goal is to have more processing power with minimal or no down time.
