I'm about to start an OVSD 4.5 implementation on Windows 2003 using a remote Oracle 9.2 database running on HP-UX 11.11 on a MC/SG cluster. The cluster is also running OVO-U/NNM.
Since I haven't done this before I'm looking for hints and pitfalls in the following areas:
- Oracle client installation on the Windows 2003 server. Anything special that needs to be configured? Is OVSD using SQL/C API or ODBC? - Creation of the database. Should it reuse the SID used by OVO-U or should it be another? - Can the wizard run on the Windows server (assuming the client connection is running) and create the table spaces, tables etc.? - Are there anything that needs to be configured in order to handle the switchover of Oracle on the cluster i.e. timers? - Any other hints based on your experiences?
