Solaris 8 and Solaris 9
Identical to Solaris 8 and 9, except that SUNWsprox is not needed.
Note: You may also require additional font packages for Java, depending on your locale. Refer to the following Web site for more information:
Oracle Clusterware, or a supported Sun Cluster version. Sun Cluster is supported for use with RAC on SPARC systems but it is not required.
If you use Sun Cluster, then you must install the following additional kernel packages:
Note: You do not require the additional packages if you install Oracle Clusterware.
In addition, you may need to install the following additional kernel packages depending on volume managers you have on your system:
Clustered Solaris Volume Manager:
Clustered Veritas Volume Manager:
Note: The SUNWschwr package installs disk fencing to protect data on the disks. It should be installed if you are using RAID but are not using Oracle Clusterware or a supported cluster volume manager. The disk fencing is also contained in the volume manager packages, so when using either of the volume manager options for RAC, the SUNWschwr package should not be installed even if the devices are hardware RAID.
Review the following additional information for your operating system:
Solaris 8 and Solaris 9 only:
Sun Cluster 3.1
ORCLudlm 64-Bit reentrant 18.104.22.168
For Sun Cluster, Oracle provides a UDLM patch that you must install onto each node in the cluster from the /racpatch directory on the clusterware directory before installing and configuring RAC. Although you may have a functional version of the UDLM from a previous Oracle Database release, you must install the Oracle 10g UDLM.
Note: At release date, Sun Cluster on Solaris 10 is not available. Check Certify on OracleMetaLink for updated support information.
