I have 2 windows machines that are set up as a cluster. Both of them have oracle installed. Both of them have a network drive D setup. When the cluster fails over to node2, drive D is mounted on that machine and all oracle files are available there.
I have created a database on Node1. All files (redo logs, control files, data files) are stored on the shared D drive. For easiness sake, lets call this database catdb. Catdb works fine and perfect on node1.
What I need to do is create that database on Node2 of the cluster so that it uses the control files, redo logs, data files that are stored on shared drive D.
What would be the best way to do this?
