Oracle 11gR2 RAC on EL5 using VirtualBox and FreeNAS


Revisited the VMs in my VirtualBox hosts and spotted few minor setup problems on EL4 guests that housing  my Oracle 11gR1 RAC. Also not happy about the slow performance when creating new database in the cluster. Try to shift the disks from IDE controller to SATA controller but the VMs just hang when boot. Still looking for solution to use SATA controller on EL4 as the driver from Dell seems not working for me.

Moreover, exploring on install Oracle 11gR2 RAC with EL5 under VirtualBox. Still considering using FreeNAS as shared storage as per its small footprint and simplicity.
