Not sure on Oracle -- but with SQL you have to have the files on shared resources or else the cluster can't fire the SQL (and other services) up because the Node in the cluster can't access the other drive.

From my experience -- I can dump backup files to an L: drive which is local to each server -- but I can't do an automated restore or use the GUI to do it because the SQL node doesn't have a dependency/resource to access the L: drives directly.
