Oracle databases and applications provide mission-critical software foundations for the majority of large enterprises worldwide. VMware Infrastructure 3 simplifies IT environments so that Oracle IT administrators can leverage their storage, network, and computing resources to control costs and respond quickly to changing business needs. VMware technology creates virtual services from the resources of the physical infrastructure, enabling administrators to allocate these virtual resources quickly to users and business units that need them most. In the demanding world of Oracle application development and deployment, virtualized infrastructure brings quantifiable time-to-market and TCO improvements by reducing development hardware infrastructure costs and by allowing more developers and users to be hosted on existing and future industry standard hardware.

I changed my mind implementing rac using vmware in the same machine.
I have a different machine..how can I implement rac in same os windows xp pro...
The version I am using 10.2.0.1.0 ...
Can you clarify the scenario..
In the first machine...database is running..
second machine has only oracle installed...
Here is my listener.ora
if my new machine's ip address is abc.xyz.f.ert and port is 1521
What should be the blank space for the listener.ora in the server


# listener.ora Network Configuration File: C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_3\network\admin\listener.ora
# Generated by Oracle configuration tools.

SID_LIST_LISTENER =
  (SID_LIST =
    (SID_DESC =
      (SID_NAME = PLSExtProc)
      (ORACLE_HOME = C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_3)
      (PROGRAM = extproc)
    )
  )

LISTENER =
  (DESCRIPTION_LIST =
    (DESCRIPTION =
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = EXTPROC1))
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = 192.168.1.106)(PORT = 1521)
       ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------)
    )
  )

The trick is that You need "shared storage".
Options: SAN, tricky SCSI or FireWire, SCSI over IP or sharing emulation by VMWare.

Hello DBASeek,

apart from the shared storage.

You need some decent knowledge to run a RAC - of cause there is that vmware appliance that can give you a 1st impression.

To setup a RAC yourself checkout that hunter cookbook:

Basically I suggest to start with basic oracle knowledge from resources like this:
